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.
Electric Guitar Amp
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.
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.
Fed up with loads of cables getting tangled up and looking messy? So are we! This inspired us to work with modern technology to allow you to stream your favourite music wirelessly to the ID:Core BEAM with extremely impressive audio quality and volume. The way in which we have designed the cabinet provides impeccable audio separation and will fill out the room with a perfect level of bass response. Find yourself enjoying music more than you ever have whilst having the option to play along to tracks and record into a DAW all from the same box, at the same time.
High Quality Construction
Designed for high quality audio
The ID:Core BEAM cabinet has been carefully designed to give you the optimum sonic performance for the bass, electric and acoustic guitars, and for audio/MP3 playback.
The custom designed speakers and the sealed and ported construction, together with the separated speaker enclosures ensure that you can get low end punch for the bass, chiming cleans on the acoustic and crushing electric tones you would expect from a Blackstar product, as well as amazing stereo definition when streaming your MP3's.
