The Fly 3 is an innovative, cutting edge 3 watt mini amp which combines two channels, tape delay and the Blackstar patented Infinite Shape Feature (ISF) to create the perfect compact and portable guitar amplifier. It’s advantageously small and packs a punch with big Tone, even at the lowest volumes.
Inspired by guitar designs from the 1980’s, these retro looking mini amps look stunning and have the same outstanding sonic performance and feature set of the black standard models.
Huge tone, small size
Rather than just being focussed on its look and compact size and ultimately sacrificing the quality of sound, the Fly 3’s unique design delivers the same tonal balance and feel of a larger guitar amp even at low volumes.
The use of a full range driver eliminates the need of a subwoofer. This has the benefit of removing the requirement for a crossover and the negative sonic impact that can have. The key part of a guitar’s tone occurs in the frequencies that are normally affected by a crossover and for music playback the performance is similar to nearfield monitors.
Attention to detail
Countless hours were spent on the design of the cabinet to achieve a sonic performance not normally found in a mini amp. The housing is sealed and tuned to ensure optimum tonal response and the material used has been mathematically modelled to have the Young’s Modulus of wood. This retains the bass response usually associated with a wooden cabinet.
Tired of moving your large amp around? The Fly 3 combines awesome tone and features in a lightweight and compact battery-powered format, giving you the perfect take-anywhere mini amp.
Your tunes, anywhere
Hours of research and development time were dedicated to the Fly 3 and Fly 103 to ensure they deliver the ultimate sonic performance as a portable music speaker. The Fly 3 is battery powered and has a competition beating battery life (when set at around half volume) meaning you can listen to your tunes or play your guitar for hours.
Fly 3 comes equipped with our patented ISF EQ, allowing you to effortlessly dial in incredible sounds. Fully counter clockwise has an American characteristic with a tight bottom end and aggressive middle. Fully clockwise has a British characteristic which is more ‘woody’ and less aggressive.
Emulated line out
Fly 3 also features Emulated Line Out, perfect for ‘silent’ practice or home recordings, keep your Blackstar tone no matter the volume.
In-built 'tape' delay
The Fly 3 comes features an in-built ‘tape’ delay effect with time and level controls. Dial in ambience from characterful slapback to epic-sounding long repeats.
Organic cleans & overdrives
The overdrive channels on the Fly 3 have been meticulously designed to clean up with your guitar volume, just like your main amp would. This allows for endless tonal textures and an addictive playing experience.
