Blackstar and The Dead Daisies have released a tiny signature edition of the popular Fly 3 practice amp, and it comes complete with something we never thought we needed: skull-shaped control knobs. 

The Fly 3 is a small amp but it promises plenty of bark, offering three watts of power, two channels, a tape delay and Blackstar's American/English Infinite Shape Feature (ISF) dial. It also features Bluetooth connectivity – a feature now extended to its beloved ID:Core practice amp – for cable-free jamming.

A freelance writer with a penchant for music that gets weird, Phil is a regular contributor to Prog, Guitar World, and Total Guitar magazines and is especially keen on shining a light on unknown artists. Outside of the journalism realm, you can find him writing angular riffs in progressive metal band, Prognosis, in which he slings an 8-string Strandberg Boden Original, churning that low string through a variety of tunings. He's also a published author and is currently penning his debut novel which chucks fantasy, mythology and humanity into a great big melting pot.
