Blackstar ID:Core V2 are small in size, but deliver huge tone – the perfect amps for budding guitarists who want to PLAY:BETTER:FASTER.
ID:Core V2 represents the culmination of more than nine years’ technical Research and Development. These amps have an intuitive control set like a traditional amp, but have the versatility of programmability. The unique controls allow you, the guitarist, to custom design your own sound. The unique and enhanced Voice control has six different channels – Clean Warm, Clean Bright, Crunch, Super Crunch, OD 1, OD 2. When used together with Blackstar’s patented ISF control you can get the exact tone you’re thinking of. An envelope filter has been added to the effects section, delivering studio quality modulation, delay and reverb effects simultaneously that you can store with your sound.
These new ID:Core V2 products feature a newly re-voiced MP3/Line Input with Dynamic EQ for louder, richer music playback. Add to this, the inclusion of PreSonus’ renowned Digital Audio Workstation software Studio One, gives you all the tools at your disposal for ultimate creative autonomy.

Phaser, Chorus / Flanger, Envelope and Tremolo give you incredible options to add to your sound.

Infinite Shape Feature
Get the exact tone you’re looking for, from USA to UK and everything in between.
The patented ISF control allows you to choose the exact tonal signature you prefer. Fully counter clockwise has a more American characteristic with a tight bottomend and more aggressive middle, and fully clockwise has a British characteristic which is more ‘woody’ and less aggressive. This leads to a very familiar, musical response.
HT Club 40 MKII
Equipped with 2 channels and 4 footswitchable voices the HT Club 40 MkII is the ideal gigging valve amp for club sized venues. The 40W EL34 driven power amplifier has groundbreaking clean punch and dynamics with expanded tone controls that will easily cut through in a full band situation. Switching to the amazing ISF equipped overdrive channel accesses a further two modes – ‘classic crunch’ and ‘super saturated lead’. The Power Reduction feature allows further flexibility, by allowing the guitarist to attenuate to 10 percent of the 40 watts of power, also making the HT Club 40 MkII perfect for the home and studio use.
