This Blackstar ID:CORE 40 V3 stereo guitar amp sounds great, and its unique Super Wide Stereo technology gives you an immersive sound experience that will have you playing along with your MP3 backing tracks for hours.

The Blackstar ID:Core Stereo 40 V3 guitar amplifier has new enhanced voices and is one of the best-sounding guitar amps in its class. It provides you great tone and versatility with a set of simple controls and delivers it in SUPER WIDE STEREO.

Studio-quality effects in the Blackstar ID CORE 40-watt V3 amplifier provide excellent Super Wide Stereo modulation, delay, and reverb effects simultaneously - and, you can store them in patches. It even has an envelope filter effect for funky cleans or touch-sensitive licks.

Modulation effects include the classic phase shifter (phaser) chorus, flanger (very intense phaser), envelope filter (for wah-type effects), and tremolo for that classic 50s sound.

Delay effects include linear, analog (pre-digital), tape (think Echoplex), and multi; you get effects from way back when to modern-day chaos.

Reverb effects include the classic room, hall, spring, and plate. Everything from the bathroom to a large concert hall is at your command!

            Great amp

            My spouse is thoroughly happy with this amp! It's small, but mighty. It has a bunch of different effects to chose from and pretty easy to learn.
