Blackstar are proud to introduce the ID:Core BEAM. Based on the control set of the critically acclaimed and best-selling ID:Core series of guitar amps, the ID:Core BEAM takes incredible guitar tone into the home and becomes the central hub for instruments and stunning music playback.
The ID:Core BEAM is the first Blackstar product with Bluetooth functionality, allowing you to stream your music to the amplifier. The hi-fi quality playback of your MP3s through the ID:Core BEAM will redefine what you can expect from a multifunctional product and with Super Wide Stereo the sound will fill the room.
With two bass, six electric guitar, two acoustic and two acoustic simulator Voices, and with a sealed and ported cabinet construction for optimum bass response and stereo definition, the ID:Core BEAM is the ultimate musician's amp for the home. The retro-cool design means ID:Core BEAM will look at home in any room in the house.
Voice The ID:Core BEAM features 6 different electric guitar voices (red LED) and 6 alternative instrument voices (green LED). There are two acoustic voices, two acoustic simulator voices and finally two bass guitar voices to choose from.
To change between the choices, press down the VOICE control knob to change the LED colour and available options.
Bluetooth To use the Bluetooth feature on ID:Core BEAM you have two options. Discoverable Mode (slow flash): to pair simply go to the devices page of your Bluetooth device, select your ID:Core BEAM, then play your music.
