A sleeker editor, a powerful new cab simulator, and even more-immersive stereo FX make the third generation of Blackstar's ID:Core 10 combo the ultimate practice amp and an essential single-handed session tool. Choose from six inspiring amp voices that run the gamut from classic cleans to scorching leads. Dial in the perfect blend of American and British character with Blackstar's patented ISF control. Add gloss and dimension to your playing with built-in modulation, delay, and reverb effects as Blackstar's Super Wide Stereo technology envelops you in immersive sound. There's even an onboard TRRS Line In/Streaming jack so you can film guitar covers and capture performances directly onto your phone using sounds from the amp. Blackstar's ID:Core line of modeling amps have persisted as some of Music Experience's best sellers among budding guitarists and light-traveling session artists. And with the Blackstar ID:Core 10 V3, the best just got better.
The Blackstar ID:Core 10 V3 is packed with a massive spread of tones, by virtue of Blackstar's Infinite Shape Feature (ISF). When turned fully counterclockwise, you'll lend an American characteristic to your voice, with a tight bottom end and aggressive middle. Turned all the way to the right, you'll enjoy more of a British vibe, with a woodier sound that's less aggressive. However you dial in the ID:Core 10 V3 between the two, you'll enjoy a musical response that just asks to be taken onstage or into the studio.
Playing through the ID:Core 10 V3 is an immersive experience, on account of Blackstar's Super Wide Stereo technology. Not only do its 12 effects sound amazing in stereo, plugging your mobile device into the ID:Core 10 V3's Line In/Streaming jack results in a multidimensional jam session that's a whole lot of fun.
With its function-per-knob control scheme and familiar combo roar, the ID:Core 10 V3 delivers big as a stage monitor or studio platform.
The Blackstar ID:Core 10 V3's USB functionality makes recording and re-amping a breeze. Record directly from your amp to your computer while enjoying Blackstar's onboard cab simulation. Or, capture tones straight off the preamp and re-amp through your ID:Core 10 V3 down the road.
Ready to go live? The Black ID:Core 10 V3's phone-ready bidirectional TRRS streaming jack lets you connect audio from your media library, jam along, and capture performances directly onto your mobile device.
