If you’re a bass enthusiast on the lookout for a compact yet powerful amplifier, the Blackstar FLY 3 Bass Mini Amp might just be your perfect match. This 3-watt mini bass amp is not just about portability; it’s about delivering an incredible auditory experience, wherever you are.

Crafted for bassists who refuse to compromise on tone, this analogue mini amp is an evolution of Blackstar’s original Fly 3 guitar amp, which earned rave reviews. The new FLY 3 Bass version not only retains the signature features but also introduces elements tailor-made for bass guitars.

A defining feature of the FLY 3 Bass Mini Amp is its dual channels: Clean and Overdrive. The Gain control, paired with an Overdrive switch, lets users transition from soft, clear notes to robust, gritty overdrive tones with ease. While many mini amps can be tonally flat, the FLY 3 Bass stands out with its unique EQ control. It offers a flexible sound curve, from a flat profile with a subtle mid-range boost to a more pronounced mid response.

But what truly sets this amp apart is its built-in compressor with adjustable ratios and the Sub Control, a harmonic generator that layers an additional low-frequency tone to your output. This special feature creates a richer, fuller sound, giving the impression of a more powerful setup than the compact size suggests.

For those moments when you wish to jam to your favorite tracks, the MP3/Line In jack comes in handy. Link your devices – be it an MP3 player, smartphone, laptop, or tablet. And if you’re all about silent practice sessions or recording, the Emulated Line Out ensures your bass notes sound just right through headphones or any recording device.

An often-overlooked feature in mini amps, but crucial for on-the-go musicians, is the power source. The FLY 3 Bass Mini Amp offers flexibility with its battery-powered operation. Six rechargeable batteries will ensure your jamming sessions aren’t abruptly cut short.

Expandability is another bonus. Connect the FLY 3 Bass Mini Amp to the FLY 103 extension cabinet, and you’re rewarded with a 6W stereo setup. This combo isn’t just for bass playing; it doubles up as an excellent speaker system for your computer or for general audio playback while traveling.

In terms of specifications, this mini amp boasts a single 3-inch speaker housed within a compact frame that measures 170mm x 126mm x 102mm and weighs just 0.9KG.

In essence, the Blackstar FLY 3 Bass Mini Amp is a blend of revolutionary design, unmatched sonic performance, and unparalleled portability. Whether you’re a seasoned bassist or just starting out, this amplifier promises to elevate your musical journey.
