Straight from Blackstar's new range, the IDC-20 stereo combo guitar amplifier is ideal for practice or gigs in small to medium venues. The Blackstar IDC-20 comes with 2, 5" speakers and delivers at an impressive volume and versatility of tone in super wide stereo.
The Blackstar IDC-20 has a vast array of connections for both live and recording purposes. The standard 1/4" line in is added to with a stereo MP3/line input so you can listen to and jam along with any tracks that you wish from an external sound source. For practice or recording, the IDC-20 has a speaker emulated line out so that you can be sure that what you hear in your headphones is the exact sound you would get from the amp. Finally, a USB connection allows professional grade recording and use with Blackstar’s Insider software.
Professional quality effects
High quality performance is at the heart of the IDC-20 and contains Blackstar’s patented ISF control that lets you switch between classic UK and USA models instantaneously. Onboard, you will find 6 classic voices; warm Clean, bright Clean, crunch, super crunch, OD 1 and OD 2. The feel and response of a valve power amplifier comes as standard, a staple in the Blackstar ID:Series family. The effects section delivers studio quality modulation, delay and reverb effects simultaneously and any combination of which can be stored internally.
Another trick up the Blackstar IDC-20's sleeve is the compatibility with Blackstar’s Insider software that can be downloaded for free from the Blackstar website. The simple and intuitive interface lets you create, edit and store patches for the IDC series amps, store a library of patches on your computer, and share them with the online community. In addition to giving you visual control over the IDC-20, Insider is full of handy features to help you improve your playing such as a built-in audio player for jamming along with your favourite MP3s and a 'phrase trainer' that lets you loop and time-stretch passages so you can slow sections of a song down to get it absolutely perfect.
The IDC-20 packs plenty of punch for either practice or small gigs and contains so many editable functions that you will never be short for inspiration with this small yet powerful package.

- Amazing amp, best in class
Great tones and huge sound from a compact package. The reverb and delay are both huge, easy to control and actually sound realistic compared to a lot of low cost amps. Good job!
The USB interface is plug and play with my logic software. Also found it great for jamming to tracks as the speakers are more like hifi speakers rather than standard guitar amp ones so it's sounds great for audio too! The software is easy to use and again plug and play.
Overall a winning amp for beginners and experts alike as it is just so much fun and so easy to get a great sound out of. I tried the 10watt too, but this just feels a bit more dynamic and also allows foot switch control. Lots of quality tricks in a super good value package. Highly recommended!
