Six Channels of Massive Tone!

Blackstar's ID:30TVP combo amp combines the feel, tone, and volume of a real tube amp with the convenience and flexibility only a solid state amp can provide. Blackstar calls it TVP - True Valve Power - and it lets you select what kind of tube tone you want, then save your custom sound for instant recall later. The ID:30TVP responds to your playing dynamics like a tube amp, breaking up when you dig in and easy to control with your volume knob. Factor in Blackstar's patented ISF tone shaping, built-in effects, and direct recording via USB, and you'll see how the Blackstar ID:30TVP is at home both onstage and in your studio.

Blackstar ID:30TVP 30-watt Combo Amplifier at a Glance:
  • Sculpt your ideal amp tones to create a signature sound
  • Blackstar's ISF gives you a wide tonal range
  • Six channels give you amazing tonal flexibility
Sculpt your ideal amp tones to create a signature sound

The patent-pending True Valve Power gives your Blackstar ID:30TVP six different responses modeled after the most popular power tube types. You'll get EL84, 6V6, EL34, KT66, 6L6, and KT88 responses, dynamics, sag, and break up characteristics. It's like owning six separate tube amps. You can create entirely new amp tones on the Blackstar ID:30TVP when you blend your True Valve Power and your ISF controls together to sculpt your signature sound.

Blackstar's ISF gives you a wide tonal range

You can create virtually any classic guitar tone you can imagine with the ID:30TVP combo, thanks to Blackstar's patented ISF control, or Infinite Shape Feature. ISF lets you adjust the response of the entire tone stack in the ID:30TVP, letting you shape tones to match the sound of different amplifier types. This means you can re-create the sounds of classic American amps, British amps, or even create your own combination of the two.

Six channels give you amazing tonal flexibility

The Blackstar ID:30TVP has six separate channels - clean warm, clean bright, crunch, super crunch, OD 1, and OD 2. You're no longer stuck with just two channels of tone - the Blackstar ID:30TVP is a sonic juggernaut. From ballads to funk to rock and metal, this amp has a channel that is perfect for you. Once you dial in your perfect tone you can save it to one of 128 storable sounds. A USB interface lets you easily tweak and save presets via your computer.

Blackstar ID:30TVP 30-watt Combo Amplifier Features:
  • 6-channel solid state combo amplifier with tube-like response and volume
  • True Valve Power lets you choose from 6 different tube responses - EL84, 6V6, EL34, KT66, 6L6, and KT88
  • Patented ISF tone shaping lets you capture the sound of American amps, British amps, or a blend of both
  • Built-in modulation, reverb, and delay effects
  • Store up to 128 of your own sounds
  • USB connectivity for easy direct recording and re-amping
  • Software included for tweaking your custom sounds
  • Multifunctional footswitch available (not included)

Great Amp!

I was in the market for a smaller amp and when I called Sweetwater, Jim Watson suggested I check out the Blackstar ID 30 TVP. I’m so glad he did because this is exactly what I was looking for! Between the 6 voices and the 6 tube emulations I can create virtually any amp I want. And the three types of effects are icing on the cake! It sounds good with single coils, humbuckers and particularly great with my Ric 12 string. And since the tubes are virtual, they still sound good as you lower the volume to human levels. All in all, a terrific amp at a terrific price. Highly recommended.


Yes, the Mustangs, Vypers, Valvetronixs and others sound great compared to solidstate amps years ago. I've owned or tried them all along with the junk I started with 30+ years ago. NOTHING comes as close to the tube feel, dynamics and bottom end as the ID series. Don't let the names ID15, ID30, ID60 fool you. They're all much louder than other amps amps in the same price range thanks to the TVP button which produces their "Loud As Valve" claim. Tones are so easy to dial in you probably will never used the Insider software that comes with it (which puts Fender Fuse to shame by the way). The interface is super easy to use. No LED screen or endless scrolling, Blackstar received a grant from the UK to help them develop this amp series and the R&D has definitely paid off. The ex-Marshall employees raised the bar with their first solidstate release. Well done fellas!

This amp is absolutely INCREDIBLE !!! There nothing you cannot do with this amp...It far exceeded my expectations! Best amp I have ever owned!!!!

This amp is Bad ***

I'm a rookie guitar player only a mere 6 months under my belt, so I have not even scratch the surface on all that this amp is capable of doing. When I bought my guitar it came with a small 10 watt amp that sounded like crap, so I have been shopping around for amps and was advised by a local music store to try out the Blackstar ID series. They let me play one and it sounded great. I bought the 30 Watt and boy am I glad I bought this amp, it is super! I am still learning how to make my own patches, but there are thousands online that you can download. This amp is bad ***. If you are looking for a new amp, you owe it to yourself to check out the Blackstar ID series!

Awesomeness...! revised

Just correcting my earlier review. The Noise gate is for OD1 and OD2... It does not interfere with the clean channels... I was confused :)
