Take Anywhere Amp
The Blackstar Fly 3 is a compact mini amp that combines two channels, Infinite Shape Feature (ISF) and a tape delay. The ISF is patented by Blackstar and gives the player multiple opportunities when shaping the amplified tone. Additionally, the Fly 3 also features tape delay effects that make your amp output resonate during play. Furthermore, the MP3/Line-in jack allows the player to connect to an MP3 player, mobile, laptop, or tablet and play along to favourite tunes. This battery or DC powered amp is also perfect for the busking musician, or those who crave a mini tone machine for taking on the go whilst travelling or to festivals, or even family barbeques.
MP3 & Recording
The Fly 3 is a compact mini amp with big functionality and output, the simple yet comprehensive control set allows the player to change the sound of the amplified tone with controls for gain, equalisation via the Blackstar patented ISF, delay time and delay level. The battery powered Fly 3 is a great way to take your music with you wherever you go and can be used with your devices as a portable speaker. When plugged into a phone or MP3 player, you receive a full-bodied sound, expected from higher-end speakers. Furthermore, the Fly 3 Pink Paisley has a competition battery life (when set at around half volume), offering hours on end of music or practice with a guitar on one single charge.
Designed For Tone
The housing on the Fly 3 is sealed and tuned to ensure optimum tonal response and the material used has been mathematically modeled to have the Young modulus of wood. This retains the bass response usually associated with a wooden cabinet. The use of a full range driver has the benefit of removing the requirement for a crossover and the negative sonic impact that crossover can have on guitar tones. PC monitors usually have a sub-woofer which can muddle up the guitar tone, while near-field monitor have a crossover in the 2 3kHz region which is where the key part of a guitar's overdrive tone occurs. The use of a full range driver eliminates the need of a sub woofer. This has the benefit of removing the requirement for a crossover and the negative sonic impact that can have. The key part of a guitar's tone occurs in the frequencies that are normally affected by a crossover and for music playback the performance is similar to nearfield monitors.
