Product Description

The Blackstar ID260TVP is a 2 x 60-watt stereo, programmable amp. With 2 x 12" speakers, this combo has a broad immersive sound and really packs a punch live.

The ID Series represents the culmination of more than seven years technical research and development by the same team that designed Series One, Artisan and HT Venue. The unique controls allow you to custom design your own sound, store it and then have the confidence that the amp will perform in a live environment.

By using the unique Voice control, patented ISF and patent-applied-for True Valve Power, these amplifiers allow unparalleled flexibility and ease of use, enabling you to in effect, design the sound in your head and deliver it live as LOUD as valve. Individuality is power!

True Valve Power

A patent-applied for feature that offers six distinctly different power valve responses - EL84, 6V6, EL34, KT66, 6L6, KT88.

Six Voice Channels

The Voice control has six different channels - Clean Warm, Clean Bright, Crunch, Super Crunch, OD 1, OD 2.

Three Band EQ

The patented ISF control works with the EQ controls to give you access to infinite sound possibilities.

Built-In Effects Section

The effects section delivers studio quality modulation, delay and reverb effects simultaneously that you can store with your sound.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Surprisingly capable amp"
Overall: I was looking for a combo that would deliver great tone, versatility, and performance for playing out and for use at practice with a drummer in the room. I was extremely reluctant to go with this (or any modeling type of amp) over tube, as I am not a fan of digital sounding distortion tones. I can honestly say I have never been more surprised. My initial thought was my expectations were simply lowered, but it keeps sounding great in a solo and band setting and keeps putting a smile on my face. Review scores are in relation to other offerings in this price range. (Will this sound better than a $4,000 tube amp? No...but how does it score against other offerings in the same range?) Tone: 10 The TVP combined with the two 12's delivers a very convincing tube feel and punch, along with tube type response to pick attack and pickup volume. My other guitarist is a notorious tone snob (more than I), and even he was impressed with the tone, volume, and presence this combo produces. Add in the ability to dial in your own pre and power tubes, and this amp can delver a wide range of useable tones...not just different, but actual tones you would want to use. Quite happy with this in the tone department. The speakers are Celestion Seventy 80's (look to be OEM for this amp judging by the magnet label), but they sound great. Plenty of low end punch, plenty of presence and they hold up well at high volumes. Features: 8 The TVP is the star of the show, and it is fantastic at what it does. I was able to dial in a few different useable voices very quickly. The mix of EQ, Resonance (low frequencies), Presence (high frequencies), and possible combinations of pre and power tubes allow you a ton of versatility. The effects are pretty good...not outstanding, but quite decent in moderation. By far, the way to use the features is the Insider software, which allows for full control of all the features as well as patch export/import/sync to amp. You get granular control of the effects in a graphical format that mimics real pedals for ease of use. Quality: 8 The only knock I can give on quality is the corner protectors being shiny hard plastic in feel. But really, that is a nit-pick that is easily overlooked. The quality is solid on this amp, and it looks and feels like you would expect from a great mid-priced amp. One last thing of note - the stereo effect (especially with the new super wide stereo that is in the latest Insider firmware/software update) is very, very good. The reverb and delay especially shine here. Great sounding amp all around, with all the versatility you could ask for and enough power to play a small to medium size gig without a mains if you had to. Holds up quite well at high volumes.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Okay .... This amp is FUN"
Overall: I have to be straight up. I am a former bassist, who decided at the age of 50 to learn and play guitar. Most of the stuff I love range from Johnny Cash to Pink Floyd. If that's not a broad enough range then throw in some CCR and Yardbirds for good measure. I know the difference between valve and solid state. I'm a guitar novice but I'm not daft as my Brit friends would say, and although this amp is not perfect, it's a lot of fun dialing it in to play the type of stuff I love. For example I just opened the box and for the fun of it dialed in You Really Got Me, but within a few minutes of that also managed to dial in Led Zeppelin The Immigrant Song and Rock and Roll. That's what I mean when I said that this amp is a lot of fun. It gives the player (ahem) enough range to experiment and tweak their sound. When I was in the mood for a little Man in Black, RING OF FIRE, it didn't take long to find that nice warm country sound with a little bite that song requires. Is the amp loud? Yes, but not so loud you will blow out your windows. Is it a dead bang for the valve emulations? No, but its pretty damned close, and if you don't have the funding for a half stack valve Marshall or Mesa, this is a viable option. I play a Stratocaster (EMG DG20s. God knows I love my Floyd), a Taylor and most recently a Gibson Les Paul Standard, and for the first time I have to say my guitars came alive. Coming from a Fender FM 212 to The Blackstar ID260 is like being reborn musically. There is tremendous range and endless possibilities. However, now for the not so flattering. I think its bulls**t that Blackstar forces us to spend another $89. for the foot controller. Even Fender includes foot controllers in its Mustang line. To really see what this amp has and is capable of the footswitch is mandatory. Hopefully one day I will get one. Anyway, this has been a novices review of the Blackstar ID260. Hope it helped a little.
Style of Music: I play classic rock from Pink Floyd to CCR, and country ranging from Johnny Cash to George Strait.
