Blackstar FLY 3 Bluetooth Battery Powered 3W Guitar Combo Amplifier

Gearank High Notes

On October 18 2021 we announced the results of our annual analysis of guitar amp brands - Blackstar ranked #6.

Gearank Recommendation

The FLY 3 Bluetooth appeared on our recommended list for Guitar Amps Under $100 from July 2019 until July 2022 when it had to be removed due to no longer being available under the $100 price limit.

Overview

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.

The Blackstar Fly3 adds Bluetooth connectivity to the original Fly3. This makes it a great option for those looking to have both great sounding speakers and the ability to just plug in and jam along to their favorite tracks.
