From the crowded field around, we take to Blackstar Id Core 100 Review as it does not only give a terrific value for money but can also easily give any of the established competition a tough competition in just about every parameters.
The unit can be distinguished with a unique combination of built-in–looper, range of ‘Super Wide Stereo’ effects with being extremely light weight and surprisingly affordable. The technology has been offered for the first time by Blackstar at entry level units to make them suitable for live performance. The unit can easily record as well via a speaker-emulated output. It can also accept stereo line inputs to play tracks for stereo-width enhancement. Additionally, its reamping mode allows you to process previously recorded guitar parts via the amp. You can save settings as three banks which can easily be recalled. The unit also boats of another two-switch FS-13 to control the in-built looper. The looper covers almost all essentials.
The design of the amplifier controls fulfils the needs of most guitar players with a rotary switch giving them the option to select between six voices. You can also select one of the three effect type via three illuminated buttons. Overall the sound sometimes comes somewhat lumpy or harsh but it is very good for the price it attracts. Overall it is a good versatile amp ideal for practice and studio-recording levels.
