      Comments about Blackstar Fly 3W Guitar Combo Amp Pack:

      Cliff's notes: This thing is just great. Sounds surprisingly good, wide range of sounds, easy to dial in what you want.
      Full story; I was a professional musician for years, but guitar is a hobby. I don't own 10 grand worth of tube amps and pedals, but I've tried lots of modelers and amps. I'm always on the lookout for something easy, portable, and fun to play electric guitar through. I have a couple of amplug headphone amps and the danelectro honeytone. Those are cute, but they're never quite right. Either I can't get enough drive, or drive is too fuzzy.. Also, often the higher notes get a really brittle quality to them, with an icepick-in-the-ear attack. It's not the best. Also, my head is humongous, and headphones get uncomfortable quickly.
      So, I ordered the Fly on a lark because I had a coupon at GC. I'd heard good things, and some of the youtube reviews sounded nice-as much as you can tell by listening to youtube. Boy am I glad I did. This thing is great fun. Good sound on every setting. The cleans are lovely and the OD maintains clarity. I can dial in virtually anything I want within seconds and it sounds good across the range of the guitar. ISF is different, but it works. Surprisingly good bass response, no more icepick. Metal isn't my thing, but I can get good imitations of Crazy Train and Enter Sandman, if that helps. It's also really responsive. The guitar volume and playing dynamics really make a noticeable difference in the amount of crunch. Is it as responsive as a good tube amp? I dunno; I don't own one of those. But it is dramatically more responsive than the modelers I've used.
      Tape delay is also pleasing. Is it authentic? I dunno; I don't own those either. But I can easily dial in anything from a little reverb to enough echo to make playing chords sound weird. Running an ipod through it sounds good too. Not 1000 watt home stereo great, but good enough. I usually get buyer's remorse after getting these toys. Not this one. It's all good.

      In addition to amplifying instruments, these make great little speakers for computer or MP3. The sound seems to be best when I put them on the floor!

          Great little amp that does more than just make things louder. I recommend getting the second speaker but even without it this amp is still a great purchase.

              I bring my 3 watt Blackstar Fly combo pack Guitar amp with me to all of my guitar lessons. I teach between 2 places Mon-Thurs and travel to several student's houses on Fridays. This tiny yet powerful amp is mobile and quite versatile, allowing myself and my students to plug in phones, Ipods, mp3 players, all the while my guitar gently weeps.

              • Backyard or on-the-go guitar playing

              Comments about Blackstar Fly 3W Guitar Combo Amp Pack:

              Overall I give it 3.5 stars. It's very convient and has great delay. I also love the AUX input (that's why I purchased it). It needs better low end capability and, mostly, a little more sharpness to the overdrive channel.
              Overall it's good. I'm happy with it. But I use mine as a permanent fixture on my back patio table (live in southern Cal) to practice writing/learning new songs, as well as a speaker to plug my phone into for playing my playlist.

                Comments about Blackstar Fly 3W Guitar Combo Amp Pack:

                As someone who plays in local bands and puts lots of time and effort into learning different gear on all fronts from live sound to professional studio recording, this little package has got to be the biggest bang for buck you could ever hope for. Small, easy to set-up, great volume and tone clarity on clean and OD channels; this thing is phenomenal! The digital tape delay is a big bonus but for most applications is best left set to modest settings. Instead of a regular tone knob on most other minis and obviously too small to practically have a 3 band eq, blackstar only includes their signature ISF knob. I highly recommend getting well acquainted with the functioning of this feature as it's the backbone of getting the different tones from the amp. I've used mine with a mic on it for my acoustic duo for electric guitar parts and performs amazingly. Not sure about full band setups but if done well I'm sure it could be done in a pinch of you absolutely had to!

                  Comments about Blackstar Fly 3W Guitar Combo Amp Pack:

                  I was going to get the single speaker, then I saw all the negative reviews about it was that it didn't come with the power adapter for it. So doing the math, it was more economical to get the bundle. The sound was so great. The extra cabinet adds extra bass to the sound, which is nice. The quality is the best for such a small speaker.
