Blackstar Announces the Fly 3

The Fly 3 features portability, two channels, ISF (Infinite Shape Feature), and digital tape delay.

Melville, NY (November 3, 2014) -- The Fly 3 Amp, the latest 3W amp from innovative amplifier and pedal company Blackstar, lands November 1, 2014. 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 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, Richardson said.

Guitars are the best. We love them. It’s fun to fall in love with a guitar at a store, buy it, and proudly bring it home. But we’ve all been there … where after a month that new guitar is just not playing as good as it was before. As guitar players, we know what feels good and what feels bad when it comes to playability. Maybe you have setup preferences that you like on all your guitars, or maybe you want to experiment with changes to your setup?
