Crystal Clear, Full, Bright Tones in a Tiny Unit
Halina, 18.05.2015
I had heard some great things about the Blackstar Fly 3 watt mini amp so I was very keen to try it. I was looking for the ultimate portable, battery operated guitar amp and I can confidently say, I think I’ve found it. This tiny combo has all the features you need for practicing and home performances. Its best asset is the lovely crystal clear sound it provides, which is in no way tinny.

The Fly 3 is a little smaller than the average box of 80 teabags. You can pick it up easily in one hand, making it extremely portable. The big sound is a surprise! The casing is well made; sleek and modern looking and the four main control knobs on the top (gain, volume, EQ and delay) are chunky and operate smoothly.

There are two channels, switchable at the touch of a button. I mainly use the clean channel. I have mostly played my Fender telecaster through the amp.I generally have the volume at about halfway up and the gain about a third. This is more than loud enough for me to sing along to, so that will give you some idea of the potential volume the Blackstar can put out. At this level, when I switch to the over-driven channel I get a nice, fairly subtle, crunchy sound with lots of bite. But of course, it can go a lot louder and more distorted than that. It really is quite amazing that these sounds come from this little box. You have to hear it to believe it.

The delay is of fantastic quality for a unit like this. I would say it is equal to using a good quality effects pedal. It ranges from a gentle reverb to a long very clearly defined delay.

I bought this amp about seven weeks ago and have used it a lot, yet it is still operating on the original set of batteries that come supplied with the unit, so I have felt no need to buy the power supply. I am keen to buy the extension speaker cab which turns it into a stereo unit, which must produce an even fuller sound.

Other features are a bright power on light (so you never leave it switched on by accident,) a headphone socket and a line in for an mp3 player. My tunes sound great through it and I also listen to audio books on it.

I just love the unique tone of this Blackstar amp. It’s very clear, bright and full. I’m a very happy customer.

Pretty good practice amp
EugeneLugovoy, 04.03.2021
I have bought this small 3w amp to use as practice amp and small home performances. I've checked a lot of videos to compare combo amplifiers in line of 3w-5w and have to say FLY 3 was on top in comparison to marshal, orange and few others; the sound/price is fair. Nice presets of EQ, not so bad OD and simple&good delay - all you need for practice. The batteries goes long enough (I have used them without changing about 6 months). So, for home practice or learning the guitar this amp is very good.
But, if you want to have small mobile amp not only for practice, but for your individual performances, you have to look at another amps in a bit higher power range 7-10w and abilities. In other words, after I have tried BOSS Katana Mini (7w) and Yamaha THR5, the sound of Blackstar FLY 3 looks a bit ugly for me.
Anyway, I really like this amp and I rate it as very good, I remember the time I brought in local studio for playing and some musicians just laughed on, but when I connected it into main mixer via microphone and we tried to play some rock'n'rolls, they said - Oh, my... this sound not so bad.
That's a I wanted to say, hope this can help you to find your lovely amp

I am impressed
Edg0414, 15.05.2020
To be honest, I did not expect this amp to be so tiny.. and so adorable!

As a beginner musician, I want to practice as much as I can. And there are situations where you cannot lug around a guitar AND an amp around. This little amp that can is a lifesaver.

Sure, there are a lot of inexpensive amps for beginners nowdays, but this one packs a punch. While features are limited, it is more than enough for an aspiring musician.

It came with batteries, even though the listing said they would not be included, but this is definitely not a minus. Absolute must-buy!

Amazing little thing
The man from Belgium, 16.02.2021
As you know covid has a lot of us working at home and behind a desk all day. I bought the FLY 3 Mini and have it on my desk and whenever I have a dead moment during my work day I just grab my guitar and play.
The sound that comes out of this little thing is amazing and it puts a smile on my face every time I plug it in.
The Fly 3 Mini operates on batteries so you can take this thing anywhere. Looking forward to a quick jam in my garden, the neighbours are not going to believe the sound coming out of this little box.
Pro’s: the size and the sound. And you can take it anywhere because of the batteries.
Con’s: haven’t found any. If you need more features, there’s a bigger size available.
