      Comments about Blackstar ID:Core Stereo 10 2x5W Super Wide Stereo Combo Guitar Amp:

      There is seriously no better amp for the price, with its killer preamp sounds, stereo effects, and simple operation thanks to the ISF eq. Pair that with a built in tuner, and you got yourself a complete practice and jamming kit with no need for extra accessories. NOTHING else sounds as good as this amp in its price range.

        Blackstar has been known for its excellent professional tube amps but they have jumped into the digital market and have done it agian. The size and sound of these little guys are amazing. They are priced right and sound like a 15 watt tube amp minus the weight and price. I highly recommend these for a practice amp or travel amp. I am a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Muisc

          This is a wonderful little practice amp. It is great for any beginning guitar player and even season veteran who just wants something small, portable, easy to use and that sounds great. I use this amp in my living room when working any number of scales, modes, or chord progressions. This is a great amp at a great price. I am a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music. AD7824

            This amp is the perfect at home practice amp. You can either just plug it in and play and not worry about any of the effects or crank up some distortion. You can also use effects like reverb and delay.

              I use the bigger version of this amp and the sound quality is awesome. this one is a pretty small so the bass isn't as amazing but it's still a great sound, especially when compared to other amps in its size class, and way better than most $100 amps. you definatly wont regret getting this amp, if your on a budget get this amp "I am a sales associate @ Sam Ash"

                This is a truly amazing small amp. Blackstar have done it again!
                It looks small- but the sound is BIG.
                The stereo speakers add a lot of room and warmness to the sound.
                With 6 different amp channels, and 12 different unbelievable sounding FX, this amp can fit in every style.

                  I couldn't believe the sound that came out of this little box the first time I heard it! The tone is unbelievable. Dual 3 inch speakers that sound gigantic and 12 different stereo effects. It's basically a killer little guitar amp with a built in interface! Comes with INSIDER software and can plug into your computer by USB. I'm a sales associate at Sam Ash Music Ontario.

                  I use this product everyday to practice some riffs and jam with my iPod. It sounds AWESOME! You have to hear it in person to fully appreicate the stereo sounds like the delay! People think I have another amp hooked up somewhere. You can get a nice clean and killer distortion tones out of this thing! Im a staff reviewer at Sam Ash Music! RB7852

                  This is a great plug and play practice amp.
                  Anything from sweet clean tones, to over the top distortion.
                  Also features adjustable delay, reverb & modulation.
                  The sound from the 2 speakers is full & sweet.
                  Simple to navigate, allowing you to dial in a great tone in just seconds.
                  The only drawback I found on this amp is that the built in noise gate seems to engage a little to quickly for my style of play (hence only 4 stars), but otherwise its a great amp.
