Blackstar is a company that is clearly geared towards metal. With a signature amp for Ozzy/Firewind guitarist Gus G, artists such as Destrage, Ministry, DevilDriver, and Cradle of Filth, and a whole line of amps called the HT-Metal series, it’s clear where their loyalties lie. Also, I have one, and I’m metal as FUCK.
But they also make a full range of amp sizes and styles, and they make a bunch of especially cool practice amps, the newest of which is the ID:Core BEAM (Bass Electric Acoustic Music), a Bluetooth-equipped practice amp for all the aforementioned instruments/home stereo.
