Blackstar ID:30TVP reviewed in TopGuitar magazine

TopGuitar is proud to inform, that the November issue of the magazine features a review of the ID:30TVP combo amplifier from Blackstar. Below are some excerpts from a review by gear department editor Grzegorz Ufnal:

“The manufacturer defined the ID:30TVP model as a practice and recording tool. But Blackstar’s British engineers have set their bar pretty high, because the ID series has to meet big expectations of today’s guitar players and stay affordable at the same time.”

“A very important and innovative feature of Blackstar ID series amplifiers is the TVP knob. True Valve Power circuit offers six options of power amp valve characteristics and dynamics. You can choose a virtual set of power tubes of your liking: EL84, 6V6, EL34, KT66, 6L6 and KT88.”

“In a home recording environment the tested Blackstar ID:30TVP works very well and as a practice amp – just perfectly. All main sounds and effects are at your fingertips and, what’s most important, they’re good quality. All this combined together lets you have a great and creative time.”
