    6121B644-F372-4756-8ADC-13846BA0614A.jpeg Had some money for my birthday and fancied a new practice amp. I tried a few, including things twice the price of this. Got a Blackstar IDCore 10. This thing is nuts, the reverbs and delays are cleverly stereod and sound like they are filling the room. I’ve not come across anything like it. Great range of clean and gain sounds, all the modulations you’d reasonably need and £105. What’s not to like.

    Does it play both kinds of music?

    Looks good and the description sounds promising. It's the kind of thing I need at the moment. Will see if I can save up to get one of these.

    Nice! I have this amp in my office and agree it is excellent. I play it mostly with headphones and enjoy the stereo feature.

    I have been very happy with my Orange Crush 12. I have limited inside storage (living room practice area) and I keep 2 guitars there too.
    This amp only has one channel but that has been a plus to me because it forced me to learn the relationships between amp volume, gain, overdrive and guitar volume and tone to get the tones I like..
    The headphone emulation is top notch. Sometimes I think it sounds better than the amp speaker. I play at least 25% of the time with phones on.
    I do have an outside shop with a work bench and the rest of my gear. I prefer to play inside the house. 20190810_080232.jpg

    I'm so glad you posted this. My Fender G dec died recently and I've been trying to decide between this amp and the Vox vx1.
    I looked at a used vox vt20 it's a nice amp but the digital setting would drive me mad, similar to the gdec too complicated. Idcor looks easy. I haven't been able to check one out yet but the reviews on You Tube are all excellent. Are you playing a Strat with it ?

    Yes mate, using it with a Strat. I have a Tele and a 335 and it’s great with all of them. I’m really loving it with the middle pickup, and I’m not usually a middle pickup guy. Check one out if you can.

    HNAD !

    These lil Blackstars are nice amps for the money and you can practice and entertain yourself for hours .







    I decided to go with this lil Vox G2.

    After getting the blackstar fly3 I'm already convinced. I'll bet that sucker is flat out awesome!

    I still love my ENGL Blackmore as a practise amp.
    Yes, a bit over the top but more is more.

    Life is good,
