Blackstar IDCOREBEAM overview

  • 1Description

The ID:Core BEAM from Blackstar is a 20W amplifier with twelve stereo effects, six voice channels, and a stereo MP3/line in for jamming or listening to music. It can be used in several environments for applications such as at home, in the studio or in rehearsals.

The ID:Core BEAM features two unique controls that allow you to custom design your own sound. The Infinite Shape Feature (ISF) and the voice control. The voice control has the following settings: Clean Warm, Clean Bright, Crunch, Super Crunch, Overdrive 1 and Overdrive 2. By using the voice control and the ISF together allows you to design the sound you are thinking of in your head.

In addition, the effects section delivers Super Wide Stereo, modulation, delay, and reverb effects simultaneously so you can also store them with your sounds. The Blackstar Insider software is used to edit and store up to 12 of your patches and it can be uploaded and downloaded via the online community.

Finally, a USB connector allows you to record from an amp directly to your computer. An emulated speaker output and MP3/line input completes the package.

To use the Bluetooth feature you have two options. Discoverable Mode (slow flash): to pair simply go to the devices page of your Bluetooth device, select your ID:Core BEAM, then play your music. Scanning Mode (fast flash): reconnect automatically to a previously paired device, or press again to enter Discoverable Mode.

MP3/Line In

    Blackstar IDCOREBEAM reviews

    ID:Core BEAM Bluetooth Amplifier is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product with rich features I mostly use this speaker as a bluetooth speaker. It is very good in term of sound quality and ease of use. Sound quality at very low volume is not so good because of static noise. But that is not really a problem. Nobody is gonna play that low volume anyway. It drives the bass very well. Sometimes I practice my guitar on this amp. Though it is not powerful enough for gig, it is more than enough for practicing at home. It comes with all basic feature. At first, I wanted to buy a good bluetooth speaker. I was choosing b/w bose soundlink, b&w zepplin wireless and this guy. Finally, I decided to choose this guy because of it feature. After testing it, I think sound quality is on par with the other two. Plus, it comes with a dual voltage adapter. So it can use both 110/220V

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lot of amp in a little package This little thing sounds amazing. I stream my computer audio to it via Bluetooth, plug in my Jazzmaster and strum through it. I've barely cracked the surface of the other features. I own another Blackstar practice amp that also sounds gorgeous so I knew it was a safe bet.
