Light weight

30.10.2016
Only one ! Day after my order (thank Thomann and DHL) stood a large cardboard box for unpacking in my living room.
So just unpacked, guitar plugged, Rocksound set and ... "sounds super, but something rattles there in the amp" .... I thought. Until I realized that not the ID core but the ceiling lamp and the glasses in the closet were the polluters ;-)
Thanks to Super Wide Stereo (despite moderate volume) for me new, space-filling sound experience.
The six voices, the sound control, the effects and the looper were equally convincing and cover a wide spectrum.
The connection to the PC via USB succeeded immediately, insider software (free) for the amp functions and audio interface for eg recordings expand the area of ??application.
Too bad that the optional Footswitch FS-12 is only to be ordered from the end of March.

Great combo!

Lucas LB, 16.01.2018
I received this amp for three months already and I am very satisfied!
Indeed, for home use as for use in concert (tested once) it is very effective!

This combo has the advantage of being powerful, and also to be ready for use from the moment of ignition. The sound is faithful to the video-tests available on Youtube. Modulation effects are very nice (little favorite for the octaver). The only downside would be the fact that the possibilities offered by the Blackstar Insider software with ID Core 150 are quite limited.

If you're looking to train at home or perform on stage with "basic" sounds, you'll pick up your guitar and combo and it'll do the trick. The addition of effects pedals is also a possible solution if you want your thing and more.

The amp is also very light for a 150W which is very nice when transporting it.

I recommend to all those who do not want to buy a lot of overdrive or delay pedals, everything is there!
