When we caught up with Paul Heyhoe last year he gave us the rundown on all things Blackstar, and he did quietly mention that there will be a new range of amps coming… Well, there are and just in time for Namm 2024, the new ID: Core V4 guitar amplifier range.
These amps are perfect for those just starting out or for those more experienced players looking for a high-quality practice and home studio recording amp. The new ID: CORE V4 range features immersive Super Wide Stereo sound, CabRig™ Lite, Blackstar’s patented ISF tone control and USB-C connectivity, plus for the first time, power reduction down to 1W allowing you to play at lower volumes without sacrificing tonal quality.
There are 3 new amps in the range, ID: CORE V4 10 Watt, ID: CORE V4 20 Watt and the ID: CORE V4 40 Watt.
The ID: CORE V4 range was developed by the same R&D team that makes Blackstar’s valve amps such as the St. James and HT Venue MK II. with a design philosophy that has always been to deliver the ultimate playing experience for guitarists.
