The Blackstar Fly 3 came out a while ago and completely changed what people thought of small portable guitar amps which were previously thought to be next to unplayable. Now Blackstar is back with a version of the Fly 3 for Bass guitar! With the ability to power from the mains or use with batteries this small amp can be taken anywhere for practice any time.
Simple Controls, Great Sound
When you have an amp this small quite often you have really limited tones. That is not the case with the Fly 3 Bass where you have gain, EQ, Comp and Volume controls as well as an overdrive control, sub mode and built in effects for a great range of tones that will please almost all players.
Connectivity For Music
This little unit is much more than amplifier though as it not only has a speaker emulated output and a headphone out so you can use it any time of day. That is on top of the MP3/Line in that lets you connect up your favourite music player so you can practice either through the emulated out or the headphone out.
Here's what Blackstar say about the Fly 3 Bass
FLY 3 Bass is a compact, innovative mini amp that that gives you huge tone on the go. Combining two selectable channels, a continuously variable mid-cut EQ, Sub bass and a compressor for ultimate control over your dynamics; it's the perfect take-anywhere amp for your bass guitar, phone or tablet.
The FLY 3 Bass also comes with an MP3 / LINE IN jack built-in, allowing you to connect to your MP3 player, mobile phone, laptop, tablet etc. and jam along to your favourite tracks; the Speaker Emulated Output jack can also be used with headphones or for recording.
You can combine the FLY 3 Bass with the FLY 103 to create a 6 Watt stereo bass guitar amp set-up. The pair of them linked together create one an amazing portable speaker system, for your PC or computer speakers to play your music through.
