Adding to the ID brand, the Blackstar ID15 combo is part of a groundbreaking range of amplifiers featuring unique control and tone shaping possibilities. Doing their best not to decrease from the feature set seen on larger ID series amps, Blackstar have kept the majority of features the same.

Power Amp Valve Modelling - "True Valve Power"

One of the most notable and unique features of the Blackstar ID15 is the valve modelling technology that is on-board, dubbed "True Valve Power". This opens up six different types of valve, including immensely popular models seen in top of the range and boutique amplifiers, which when activated delivers the same power output as that valve and offers all of the characteristics (dynamics, sag etc.) which you would expect from that particular valve. The on-board valve models are: KT88, EL84, 6L6, 6V6, KT66 and EL34.

128 Programmable Presets

Allowing you to create and store your favourite sounds, the preset functionality of the Blackstar ID15 is hugely effective when performing live or practising. You can assign all of the amp controls plus the on-board effect settings into a preset that can be recalled for later use. Free software is also provided to edit and store patches when connected to a computer. The on-board effects are of extremely high quality and offer delay, modulation and reverb.

Six Channels

Sitting at the left hand side of the front panel you have the "Voice" control. This lets you choose one of six channels, offering a huge range of tones. The channels on offer are: Clean Warm, Clean Bright, Crunch, Super Crunch, OD 1 and OD 2. Obviously, this gives you a lot of opportunity to create individual and professional tones perfect for the music you're working on. Gain and volume controls let you match levels and get just the right amount of both while the EQ section offers bass, treble and the ISF control seen on other Blackstar amps. ISF stands for "Infinite Shape Feature" and lets you shape the whole sound of your amp. When at 0 the sound is similar to that of typical American amps, percussive and tight, while all the way up this dial gives you the warm and crunchy tone heard on many British amps. Giving the Blackstar ID15 the ability to sound like a huge range of amps and also blend between them, ISF is an extremely notable feature that can be used very effectively.

Customer Reviews
Best non-valve amp I've ever heard!
Posted on 10/02/2016 by Dot I've had this amp for a couple of months now. I don't often write product reviews, but credit where credit is due: this is a quality bit of kit. Its very well built. And in terms of sound is definitely in a different league from the other solid state amps I've heard. The range of tones - from clean to metal and everything in between - is amazing. For 15w it's SO loud! The effects are all of very high quality and have usable parameter ranges. But its the pure quality of the sound that seriously impresses (more so than the 'loudness' which seems to be Blackstar's main focus in the marketing blurb). It plays more like a valve amp than a transistor amp. It's so responsive and sensitive to guitar volume and tone adjustments and picking intensity. The software is user friendly and allows you to set a mind bogglingly diverse range of user-created patches (and to download other people's). Recording/headphone sound quality is fantastic (no need for the BOSS effects in my BR800 multitrack any more - I always go through the amp first now). The footswitch is well worth getting too - allows more pre-sets to be accessed and offers a lot of functionality and high build quality for not much cash.

I guess it's not cheap compared to some other small modelling amps... but for the satisfaction levels it provides I think it's great value for money. You buy cheap, you buy twice I guess! I cant see me needing to upgrade for a long time! Very very happy customer!
Find your sound easily
Posted on 29/04/2013 by Darren The HT1 is superb such good sound for such a small package. What struck me is the way that good, useable sounds fell straight to hand. Some other amps, take a lot more work to get to sounds you can use.

So I ordered an ID 15 and a few weeks later I was getting stuck into it. For a 15 watt amp it’s loud, not been past 2 on the volume at home yet, and really strong in the bass department. The effects cover most of what you could need with tasteful control. .

When you find a great setup you can save it to PC, and use the computer to edit patches and download user and artist patches from the online community. The software was glitchy at first, but upgrades have been made and they have really improved it, though the tuner is still pretty hopeless.

Every time I use the amp I find it’s even better than I thought, the overdriven voices are strong and chunky, the cleans are big and warm, best of all the crunch tones are genuinely crunchy, responding to attack. The valve models really give you variety; you don’t have to settle for one amp.
