Blackstar's ID Amp That's Powerful Enough for the Stage

Blackstar's ID:Core 100 digital combo amplifier contains all of the tone-tweaking power and wide stereo imaging of Blackstar's ID:Series and injects 100 watts of power, creating a stage-ready amp. The ID:Core amplifiers boast six channels that range from vintage-style American clean tones to high-gain sustain. And features such as programmable presets, onboard effects including a looper, and a USB output for software-based deep editing and direct recording make the Blackstar ID:Core 100 combo amp a great option for players wanting to use the same amp at home as on the stage.

Blackstar ID:Core 100 Combo Amplifier at a Glance:
  • Wide range of customizable tones
  • Onboard effects including a looper
  • Plenty of power for live performance
Wide range of customizable tones

The ID:Core 100 contains six selectable voices. Each can be selected, dialed in with level, bass, middle, and treble controls, and saved to one of the amp's preset locations. These presets are then accessible via buttons on the amps control panel or via the included footswitch. Blackstar's ISF knob dials between more British or more American voices. The amp's USB output accesses Blackstar's free INSIDER software for deeper editing and enables direct recording. And you'll be blown away by how wide of a stereo image this amplifier's two speakers deliver.

Onboard effects including a looper

Once your tones are dialed in, you'll enjoy access to the ID:Core's onboard effects. Reverb, delay, and octaver, and modulation effects are all available and easily controllable via the amp's TYPE control. They can also be saved in your presets. Another powerful feature in the ID:Core amplifiers is the built-in looper. Simply start a loop to record, then switch to a different one of your preset tones and lay down another track. You'll enjoy unlimited overdubs with controls for undo and clear for editing your performances.

Plenty of power for live performance

Blackstar's ID:Series of amplifiers are incredibly popular, and we sell a lot of them at Sweetwater. But there is a demand for those same features in an amplifier that offers enough power for live performance. The ID:Core answers the call with 100 watts of power. This is plenty to compete with any drummer, and it delivers enough headroom to keep the amp from struggeling at these volumes. And two 10" speakers are used for their balance of punch and clarity, while helping keep the amp at a featherweight 27.5 lbs.

Blackstar ID:Core 100 Combo Amplifier Features:
  • Digital combo with a wide range of tones
  • Wide true-stereo sound
  • 6-channels for multiple classic amp tones
  • Built-in looper
  • Fully customizable presets
  • Onboard effects with tap tempo fill out your tones
  • USB output access deep editing software
  • Line/headphone output is speaker emulated
  • 2 x 10" speakers
The ID:Core 100 takes a ton of great amp tones to the stage.

Blackstar id core 100

Can't believe all the great sounds and power out of this amp

Blackstar ID: Score 100

Tried a more entry level practice amp from a reputable British maker with modest wattage and 8 inch speaker. Dynamic range suffered accordingly and more than modestly. This amp is a different story. It may be more than twice the price but it provides my rosewood the quality assurance of reproduction to meet or exceed my expectations. The Boss 2x12 was a contender for the purchase (out of the park amp for bang for the buck); however, ID Core 100 baseball hits the out field wall - still a home run for my use at home and savings. ID Core 150 or Boss 2x12 would be better fit for bar and grill encounters.

Great Features and Ease of Use

This amp is perfect for my use. The built in effects are much better than some pedals I have used for the same effect (reverb, delay). It also works well with pedals that I use before inputting into the amp. Though a lot of patches are available via the amp itself the additional foot switch is a must! You can access all 36 patches and more via the 5 button switch connected to the included 2 switch button it comes with. I currently use 3 switches for patch selection, delay on/off, delay tamp tempo, reverb on/off and the last one I alter from mod on/off to all effects on/off. I normally run it at about 60% volume and its plenty loud especially when using volume pedals or boosts. For this price I could not have purchased a better amp.

Very Fun, Versitile amp

I've been very excited about this amp for months, and i finally got it! Instantly plugged it in and jammed! This amp blew my expectations! The stereo speakers really capture a 3D sound. The built in effects are really good, and are easy to adjust, and you can apply more than one effect at a time. The octaver effect is very cool, you can make a 12-string effect happen, and you can turn your guitar into a bass guitar! then the included looper switch.. That's where the magic happens. you can do infinite loops. you can apply your octaver effect to your looper to have a bass line, which is really cool. the looper is a great songwriting tool! the switch is easy to use, with only having 2 buttons. the voicings are very good, and the EQ on the amp is very good, and i love the ISF control. Thank you Sweetwater for shipping it out quick and safely!


I've owned an ID:Core-20 since they came out with this award winning series, and have loved every minute of it's use. I pre-ordered this ID:Core 100W 2X10" and have waited for it like a kid waits for Christmas. I've had this now for 22 hours & 17 minutes, and had to break away from playing it to tell everyone who might be wondering, what a great, affordable amp it is! This is my latest purchase from James Masterson at Sweetwater, and as is his habit, James has taken great care of me. He is very knowledgeable and always helpful and informative. You can't do better than dealing with James Masterson!If you're familiar with the initial, smaller ID:Core amps, then you'll feel right at home with the new 100 & 150 models. It's just that now that "right at home" feeling has you moving into a bigger home, with all those bigger-home features. These amps include not only the obligatory bass, mid, & treble, but also bass-resonance & presence dialability. A minimum of 9 custom presets are possible through the amp alone, and can also be used as a starting point for any of the 6 amp models as well. Up to 36 presets are available through the soon-to-be available FS-12, 5-way footswitch, which is daisy-chainable with the included 2-way FS-13 footswitch. All ID:Core amps & footswitches support a wealth of customization & recording through USB. The built-in looper sounds fantastic. And the built-in octaver that's included in the effects section is very trippy, and a real treat that I'm sure I'll be exploring as long as I live. Incredible tonal possibilities lurk within that octaver, from the sublime to the outrageous. Just scratching the Octaver's surface, I had my Strat sounding like an organ/guitar! It's very easy to get great tone out this amp. And you haven't lived until you've heard the award-winning Stereo-Wide effect in the delay section! Team Blackstar really puts a lot of thought into their designs, and their quality control is excellent. Call James Masterson, and he'll fix you right up. Thanks James! ...signed, The Little Kid At Christmas
