The Central Hub.

The ID:CORE BEAM brings stylish versatility and beautiful sonics for all things music; designed with home use in mind, the ID:CORE BEAM’s boutique-retro design will feel at home in any space whether that be recording directly into your DAW via the home-studio or listening to music in the lounge.                                       

High Quality Construction

The ID:CORE BEAM cabinet has been carefully designed to give you the optimum sonic performance for bass, electric, acoustic and audio/MP3 playback.

The custom designed speakers and the sealed and ported construction, together with the separated speaker enclosures, ensure that you can get low end punch for the bass, chiming cleans on the acoustic and crushing electric tones you would expect from a Blackstar product, as well as amazing stereo definition when streaming your MP3’s.

The Controls

The ID:CORE BEAM features six different electric guitar voices, two acoustic voices, two acoustic simulator voices and finally two bass guitar voices.

The effects section on the ID:CORE BEAM differs slightly to the original ID:CORE with additional effects available, specifically for the bass guitar; there is a bass envelope effect and also a bass distortion effect available, with the rotary control and level control affecting the overall sound.


The ID:CORE BEAM is the first Blackstar product that caters for bass guitarists; we have worked extensively on the bass voicings on this amp to make sure they will please even the most discerning player. There are two distinct bass voicings on the BEAM:

  • Bass 1 Voice: This is a vintage voicing; this voicing is EQ’d fairly flat and will give you warm, smooth, classic bass tones.
  • Bass 2 Voice: This is a modern bass voicing that will help you achieve those dynamic bass tones of today.


The electric voice control has six different settings – Clean Warm, Clean Bright, Crunch, Super Crunch, OD 1, OD 2. Using these in conjunction with Blackstar’s patented ISF (Infinite Shape Feature), you will be able to achieve any tones you are thinking of and get the ‘sound in your head’. (If you want to go into even deeper editing, simply plug your ID:CORE BEAM into your Windows PC or Mac and open up the Architect software.)


This is the first ever acoustic product that Blackstar have released and we have worked tirelessly to make sure you will be able to achieve crystal clear acoustic chimes to warm, full-bodied depth. There are 2 different voicings available for your acoustic guitar:

  • Acoustic 1 Voice: This is designed to be a flat response allowing your acoustic to take the driving seat; the tone from the amp will replicate that of your acoustic and it’s pickup and pre-amp section.
  • Acoustic 2 Voice: This is a natural sounding, dynamically voiced pre amp that will turn any acoustic guitar into a ready-to-record tone machine.

Music - Fed up with loads of cables getting tangled up and looking messy? So are we! This inspired us to work with modern wireless technology to allow you to stream your favourite music wirelessly via Bluetooth to the ID:CORE BEAM with extremely impressive audio quality and volume.

The way in which we have designed the cabinet provides impeccable audio separation and will fill out the room with a perfect level of bass response; find yourself enjoying music more than ever whilst having the option to play along to tracks and record into a DAW all from the same box at the same time.
