Overview

The Blackstar Fly 3W combo is the new gold standard for the mini class of amplifiers. Though it's small, it's not a toy. It's an incredible low-wattage practice amp that you can use in your bedroom, put on a desk or throw in your backpack and jam wherever you want, via the battery-powered operation.

It features two channels, built-in digital delay, Blackstar's patented Infinite Shape Feature for endless control between U.K.- and U.S.-style tone. It also offers an Aux. line in for jamming along to your own music, a headphone out and an emulated line out for silent practice or recording.

And, if you want to really rock in small-scale form, you can chain the Fly combo to a Blackstar Fly 103 1x3" extension cab, and turn your rig into a 6W stereo setup that's also perfect for playback of your own music library.

I tried the small fenders, marshals, oranges... And to be honest, this sounds extremely good, and dare I say it, better sounding than many solid state amps that go for around $150-$200. It has a variety of effects, which is something really great since not many mini-amps offer this. From many mini-amps like this, you expect something with just a volume knob and a gain, you don't expect it to sound great but you expect something to sound fairly decent. When I can't crank my Hot Rod deluxe, I use this little guy... I give it 5 stars because it's something that really surpasses your expectations, remember that this is a 3w amp that you can carry with you and still it sounds loud and good.

this amp sounds good. sounds like a real amp not like a transistor radio like allot of these micro amp. good clean and distortion sounds. really surprised at how good it sounds. sounds great with headphones also. my only problem is I bought one and had a problem with the delay. after plucking the strings the first delay/repeat was slightly distorted. this is even with a clean sound. clearly something was wrong in the delay circuit. maybe an overheated electronic piece on the circuit board. sent it back got another and it did the same thing but not as noticeable. still did it though. clearly these amps have a manufacturing problem with this delay circuit. one broke amp is one thing, but two doing the same thing is a bigger problem. contacted blackstar and got an acknowledgement email with promise of response. been 2 weeks never heard back from blackstar. the amp does work but it isn't supposed to do that. I would not recommend this amp because of this. I will not buy any blackstar product again. if they cant even do right over a $59 product then why would I buy a flagship expensive amp from them.

    Amazing sound for the 3" speaker and only 3 watts. And the on-board DDL is very good.

      Comments about Blackstar Fly 3W Guitar Combo Amp:

      I chose this amp after looking at various reviews. I don't know anything about Blackstar amps in general, and I admit to being somewhat of a gear snob. But for the reviews, I'd never consider this amp.

      I was pleasantly surprised with the sound, as well as the small form factor. Clean and OD sounds are surprising thick, with good mid-range, and the delay is effective for further tone thickening. As a standard delay, it isn't bad.

      My only (minor) gripe relates to the EQ. I'd like to have a three-band eq. However, I realize that would be a design manufacturing challenge. The contour control does give an adequate range of tones.

            Comments about Blackstar Fly 3W Guitar Combo Amp:

            I live near beach in Thailand (no power, duh). Fits into pocket of gig bag. This does a great job with augmenting acoustic electric guitar, besides electric guitars. A bit of noise as beach near road, and this adds just enough volume, also when playing with buddies who may show up. Not so sure about the EQ as not much effect on sound, but who cares? I wasn't looking for another battery amp when saw this at GC, but glad I got it and brought back with me. Also got extension speaker when want a bit more sound.

                I'm totally impressed with the Blackstar Fly. I hooked up my old battery powered Digitech RP80 and it sounds awesome. And best of all, I'm completely off grid with this setup.

                  Item arrived quickly, in good order and is exactly as advertised. You Tube helped a bunch. Listened to all the mini's available and believe it or not it came down to this one and the Danelectro Honeytone. This one was about $60 and the Danelectro about $30, plus shipping. I opted for the Blackstar had the edge with the delay built in. For a little 3 watt amp, it sounds durn good. Put it your gig bag and take it anywhere you want. Ordering the companion speaker for it, t compliment this little powerhouse.

                    I love this compact little amp. It's portable and easy to use. Sounds really good for a 3W amp. The delay is good and the ISF function is really neat. Wish it would have more functions, but that would be high expectations for something so small and cheap. Overall, I love it.

                      This little device is a marvel.. It is rock solid and has a fabulous tone. I was puzzled by one of the reviews that compared it to, and instead recommended a 20-30W combo Blackstar. Which costs 10 TIMES as much!. Thats a totally unfair comparison. This little amp aims at a specific niche, and it hits the target dead center. The capability to run on batteries can be a bonus at times as well.

                          I was very surprised at the sound I got from such a small mini amp. I would recommend it for certain situations. Kinda fun to see people's expression when I bring it out. Yes, I'm still talking about the amp.
