Blackstar Releases the Fly 3 Def Leppard

The new amp also includes a customized Def Leppard panel and full color collector’s gift carton.

Melville, NY (May 31, 2019) -- Blackstar’s FLY 3, the lightweight 3-watt mini amp with punchy, powerful tone, has added a new model to the innovative series: The Fly 3 Def Leppard. Designed with the iconic Hysteria artwork as the face of the grille, the new amp also includes a customized Def Leppard panel and full color collector’s gift carton, a must-have for guitarists and rock n’ roll fans alike.

“This was Blackstar’s first artist series licensed product and who better than iconic British rock band, Def Leppard? Phil Collen has been known to use the ID Core series, so this was a perfect pick to customize the FLY 3 amp. The timing couldn’t be better, as Def Leppard is this year’s Rock n Roll Hall of Fame inductee, so we’re excited to coincide with that achievement,” says Director of Guitar Brands at KORG USA, Inc., Brian Piccolo.

The Fly 3 Def Leppard has BlueTooth connectivity with ground-breaking sound design, guaranteeing that Def Leppard collection will sound great anywhere. True to the original Fly 3, this model includes Blackstar’s patented ISF and clean and overdrive channels. For further convenience, the FLY 3 series is battery or DC powered.

The Fly 3 Def Leppard will be available June 2019 for $99.99.
