Bass Guitar Amp
The ID:Core BEAM is the first product that caters for bass guitarists. We have worked extensively on the bass voicings on this amp to make sure they will please even the most discerning player.
Bass 1 Voice setting is a vintage voicing. This voicing is EQ’d fairly flat and will give you warm, smooth, classic bass tones.
Bass 2 Voice setting is a modern bass voicing that will help you achieve those dynamic bass tones of today.
The ID:Core BEAM features 6 different electric guitar voices (red LED) and 6 alternative instrument voices (green LED). There are two acoustic voices, two acoustic simulator voices and finally two bass guitar voices to choose from.
To change between the choices, press down the VOICE control knob to change the LED colour and available options.
To use the Bluetooth feature on ID:Core BEAM you have two options.
Discoverable Mode (slow flash): to pair simply go to the devices page of your Bluetooth device, select your ID:Core BEAM, then play your music.
Scanning Mode (fast flash): reconnect automatically to a previously paired device, or press again to enter Discoverable Mode.
The effects section on the ID:Core BEAM differs slightly to the original ID:Core. There are some new effects available, specifically for the Bass guitar. There is a bass envelope effect and also a bass distortion effect available, with the rotary control and level control affecting the overall sound.
