  • ID:Core BEAM Bass Guitar Amp

    Bass Guitar Amp

    The ID:Core BEAM is the first product that caters for bass guitarists. We have worked extensively on the bass voicings on this amp to make sure they will please even the most discerning player.

    Bass 1 Voice setting is a vintage voicing. This voicing is EQ'd fairly flat and will give you warm, smooth, classic bass tones.

    Bass 2 Voice setting is a modern bass voicing that will help you achieve those dynamic bass tones of today.

    The electric Voice control has six different settings – Clean Warm, Clean Bright, Crunch, Super Crunch, OD 1, OD 2. Using these in conjunction with Blackstar’s ISF, you will be able to achieve any tones you are thinking of. If you want to go into even deeper editing, simply plug your ID:Core BEAM into your Windows PC or Mac and open up the Insider software.

  • ID:Core BEAM Acoustic Guitar Amp

    Acoustic Guitar Amp

    This is the first ever acoustic product that Blackstar have released and we have worked tirelessly to make sure you will be able to achieve crystal clear acoustic chimes to warm, full bodied depth. There are 2 different voicings available for your guitar:

    Acoustic 1 Voice setting is designed to be flat response allowing your acoustic to take the driving seat. The tone from the amp will replicate that of your guitar and the guitar’s pickup and pre-amp section.

    Acoustic 2 Voice setting is a natural sounding, dynamically voiced pre amp that will turn any acoustic guitar into a ready-to-record tone machine.
