        Awesome little amp! 12 stereo effects, killer amount of tone, and even hooks up to your computer via USB. Basically an interface with a killer guitar amp built around it. Amazing how good the quality of sound is. I'm a sales associate at Sam Ash Music Ontario.

              Comments about Blackstar ID:Core Stereo 40 2x20W Super Wide Stereo Combo Guitar Amp:

              My bf has this amp and we use it everyday all the time. for parties, playing gta or any other video game (makes the games more immersive) and thats just non-musical uses. For jamming, he played an 8 string and the bass strings still sounded good so you can play 7 or 8 string guitar with this amp and it wont get muddy. realy a great deal, can't play halo without this amp plugged in now, it just not as awesome with the tv speakers.

                Comments about Blackstar ID:Core Stereo 40 2x20W Super Wide Stereo Combo Guitar Amp:

                This amp has many great features like. One of the features that really stands out are the effects. Many brands like Marshall, Fender, Peavey, and many others also make practice amps with effects built in, BUT the ID CORE 40 sounds better than all of them. One Effect that I really liked was the plate reverb. since the amp is stereo, when you add reverb it sounds sooo full, and feels like you are in outer space!
                You can also plug in your amp to the compute a edit the FX he way you like.

                bottom line: best practice amp, if you are looking for an amp for your living room- that is the one.

                  This amp is just killer, if you need a loud, good quality amp, but dont wanna shell out the money for a tube amp, or just want that good sound without needing a backbrace to carry a tube amp, this is it. 40 watts of volume(2x20 watt stereo speakers) with stereo effects, and that signature blackstar ID series sound. You can cover all grounds from light rock, to jazz, to full on modern metal.
