    Comments about Blackstar ID:Core Stereo 20 2x10W Super Wide Stereo Combo Guitar Amp:

    My bro got me this amp as I was asking about something that was easy to fit into my room for recording and practice.

    Its just a straight up killer amp for the money.

    After plugging in I took a USB straight into the PC and it was on for recording!!!

    The Insider software is also great to keep getting updates from Blackstar themselves and

    the tone is super versatile from a really clean warm vintage tone throught to a stomping high gain sound. OD1 and OD2 include a built in noise gate which for a guy like me who ain't great on the guitar gives me a lot more control in my sound.

    The effects also record in this super wide stereo so you get a pretty huge sound on playback......and there are some seriously deep effects to check out!

    I'd recommend this product to anyone, new to the guitar or a pro who wants a really great sounding and versatile practice combo and way to make easy big sounding guitar recordings without micing up etc.

    I can't wait to try some of their bigger amps if this is what Blackstar can get out of a small box!!

    Comments about Blackstar ID:Core Stereo 20 2x10W Super Wide Stereo Combo Guitar Amp:

    Though compact, it sounds like a real amp, not like "toys" as other small amps do. I just hated the PSU (power supply unit/connection cable) that would fit OK for a notebook charger, but definitely not for a guitar amp. The thing is so weird that it is not even shown oh their website pictures.

        Comments about Blackstar ID:Core Stereo 20 2x10W Super Wide Stereo Combo Guitar Amp:

        Strictly put, this is a practice amp. It's plenty loud, and great if you live in an apartment. If you're looking for an amp to play with on stage, you're probably not going to want this. As a practice amp to play around with? This is the best I've ever used. How they get this kind of sound out of that small a package blows my mind. There's a ton of tone variety in the amp itself, but things get crazy when you download the free software. It unlocks even more tone options and you can save a boatload of sounds that you can unlock. You can basically control the amp entirely from your computer with just a USB cable. If you want to practice, this is as good as it gets.
