Blackstar Fly3 Battery Powered Guitar Combo Amplifier 3W

The Blackstar Fly 3 is a combo amp designed for portable use, rated at 3W and equipped with a 3" speaker.

Weighing in at just less than 2 lbs, you can literally take this amp anywhere, and since it can run on 6 x AA batteries or on an optional 6.5V DC power supply, you can play with it wherever you want to take it.

More importantly it's not just any generic amp, because it carries with it Blackstar's IFS (Infinite Shape Feature), which lets you change the voicing of the amp via a single knob.

Other features include having an MP3/line-in jack and headphones out with speaker emulation.

Features:

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

Pros:

Portability is obviously the Blackstar Fly3's strong suit, and this is reflected in reviews, many of which describe the amp with superlatives like super, great, awesome and more. It is also well commended for its overdriven tone, which continues to impress even experienced players. Finally, many are surprised at how loud this amp is, given its miniature size.

Cons:

There are a few users who are not too happy with its clean tone, while others feel that the bottom end is lacking, these are inherent issues though due to the amp's small speaker setup.

Overall:

If you're looking for a battery-powered amp, the Blackstar Fly 3 won't disappoint.
