Blackstar Introduces 3-Watt Fly 3 Guitar Amplifier

The Fly 3 Amp, the latest 3-watt amp from Blackstar, was introduced November 1.

From the company:

The Fly 3, for guitar, phone or tablet, features the big sound quality of a traditional amplifier combined with the portability of a mini and incorporates two channels, the patented ISF (Infinite Shape Feature) and digital tape delay for a superior playing and practicing experience.

“We are really excited about the launch of Fly 3,” said Joel Richardson of Blackstar Amplification. “Our initial concept was that just because it’s a mini guitar amp, it doesn’t mean it has to be toy. We were able to achieve revolutionary sonic performance, so it sounds like a genuine amplifier.

“Fly 3 is a real guitar amp. Whether you’re jamming in the back of the tour bus or listening to music with friends, Fly 3 can be used anywhere.”

Richardson added that it is a real practice and recording solution for guitarists who need a small, portable amplifier as it operates on batteries, as well as DC power.

An MP3/Line In socket allows the FLY 3 to be connected to an MP3 player, mobile phone, laptop or tablet. When connected to a FLY 103 cabinet (sold separately or as part of the Fly Stereo Pack), it becomes a 6-watt stereo amp for guitar or music playback.
