          Just like its little brother..the CORE40 is a powerful beast in a tiny package. With more power and bigger speakers you get more head room and clarity while still not sacrificing portabilty. 40 watts of power into to 6.5: speakers provide the noice with the built in effects and awesome features such as MP3 input with headphone jack for silent practice. 6 classic channels with 12 effects rounf out this great little amp!

                    Wow!! I cannot believe the big and clear sound that come roaring out of this little amp. The name does not lie, the stereo sound on this puppy is WIDE...it is hard to believe that much sound is coming from such a little amp. Combined with 12 amazing effects, the ability to plug in USB, and dual speakers, there really isn't much you can ask for. Great for home and going to small gigs, the portable size and light-weight make this an ideal amp for someone who doesn't want to sacrifice sound for size.

                    This little amp is amazing. Its so loud with such rich sound! I cant believe its only $200! Tone controls are awesome and I can save the settings! Not only that, but I can also go online and share and download other user presets. This little guy has such a wide stereo image, all you hear is detail. I've been using it at my rehearsal and boy it gets the job done and more! I recommend this for any traveling musician looking to get the most bang for their buck.

                      I needed a loud practice amp that wasn't too big.
                      This amp fit the bill and it sounds great too for the price!

                      This great little amp comes packed with tons of goodies. It has four types of every effect built in to it. You can use your computer to download presets and change the settings. And the stereo feature makes you sound like you're in a stadium when you sit in front of it. Great for practice or jamming with friends.

                        If you're looking for a good amp for practicing at home, look no further. This amp packs a big punch in a very small package. You get six different amp models, from a warm clean to high gain distortion. This, along with the added effects and Blackstar's patented Infinite Shape Feature knob will allow you to dial in absolutely any tone you want, from warm and jazzy to crusing metal. All in all, if you need a good practice amp, this is absolutely the one for you.
