The Blackstar Fly 3 Mini Amp in Vintage finish is a pocket powerhouse that delivers 3-watts of battery-powered tone through its compact 3'' speaker. Despite its tiny proportions, the Fly 3 packs in 2 channels for clean and overdrive sounds, along with Blackstar's patented Infinite Shape Feature (ISF) technology that creates the ideal blend of American and British tone. The Fly 3 also has a built-in tape delay effect to enhance your tone and can produce assertive guitar tones even at quiet volume levels. An aux-in lets you plug in your music playback device and jam along, while a line-out is compatible with both headphones and other line-level devices, so you can have the choice of plugging into a recording device, a separate speaker system, or plugging in headphones for silent practice sessions. The battery powered capability of the Fly 3 means you can take it wherever you need, for use as a compact guitar amp or even as a portable speaker for your music. The Fly 3 lets you take your tone on the road and get playing no matter where your travels take you.
The Blackstar Fly 3 has two channels letting you create both clean and overdrive sounds. The clean channel can cover pristine sounds through to edge-of-breakup tones, while the drive channel covers crunch sounds through to distortion. The amp also features Blackstar's patented ISF technology that creates a blend of sound between American and British styles of overdrive.
A built-in tape delay sound provides a sympathetic ambience which can help 'pad out' your tone and give your playing a polished sound. The delay effect can range from small-room style slapback delay sounds through to large-room delay tones for soaring solos.
The Fly 3 has a guitar input and an additional aux-in, so you can connect your music playback device and jam along with your favourite music. The 3'' speaker is a full-range design, meaning it reproduces all frequencies equally (unlike traditional guitar amp speakers); this lets you use the Fly 3 as a music playback speaker, where it will reproduce a balanced frequency range for the ultimate battery-powered music system.
The Fly 3 also has an emulated line output. This is compatible with headphones and other line-level devices such as recording interfaces and mixing desks. The line output has an emulated speaker sound, so no matter what you connect the amplifier to, you'll be guaranteed the sound of a professionally mic'd guitar cabinet. This means the Fly 3 can be used as a silent practice amp with headphones, or as a recording amplifier where its direct signal will send a great tone to your recording device.
The Fly 3 can be powered by DC or 6x AA batteries, giving you the option of playing in locations without electricity. The amplifier can also be connected to an external Fly 103 extension cabinet to create a portable stereo setup with great tone.
