Blackstar FLY 3 Bluetooth 3W Guitar Combo Amplifier

The Blackstar Fly3 Bluetooth is a step above its sibling, the Fly3, the main difference being the addition of Bluetooth connectivity.

This allows the amp to double as a multimedia speaker for streaming audio from Bluetooth compatible devices.

Very convenient for jamming and other than that, it has the same 3W 2-channel amplifier and 3" speaker, along with Blackstar's patented IFS (Infinite Shape Feature) knob, which lets you conveniently shape your tone to mimic various amp voicings.

All of these are packed in a lightweight cabinet, designed to run on 6 x AA batteries or through an optional 6.5V DC power supply.

Features:

  • 3W Amp
  • 3" Speaker
  • 2 Channels
  • Tape Delay Effect
  • Aux Input, Headphones Output
  • Bluetooth Connectivity
  • Weight: 1.98 lbs.

Pros:

Comments about the Blackstar Fly 3 Bluetooth are quite positive, with many describing the amp as a convenient all-around tool for guitar and for simply enjoying music. The ability to run on batteries is also well appreciated, especially since it complements its Bluetooth feature nicely, making it a truly untethered multi-media player. Guitar players also appreciate its tone, which many affirm as a good representation of Blackstar tones, only this one is lighter and smaller.

Cons:

While it is appreciated for its dirt tones and high gain, some users feel that the amp's clean tone is lacking. There are also a few who wish that the AC adapter was bundled with the amp, so take their advice and buy the optional power supply.

Overall:

Versatile in terms of facility and tone, the Blackstar Fly 3 Bluetooth is the portable amp for the modern era.
