Backstair Fly -3 amp

Very simply, if you have used any of the other mini amps and then the Blackstar the decision is clear. Compared to this amp, the others are toys. Fantastic if you need a quiet little place to practice, or if you need to raise the volume to be heard. The volume and sound quality is right there. This amp is without a doubt the best sounding mini amp I have ever heard. I would give it 5 out of 5 stars if there was a star rating system.

Great Little Amp

How could they do this for $59.00? Fun little amp


I wanted something ultra small for travel and apartment level playing, so I ordered the Fly3. I got more than I expected with this little gem. I've owned a few battery powered amps over the years and this one has the features I wanted in a smaller package than any of them, and a fantastic tonal palette. I like the simplicity of a single effect and an interesting EQ pot that ranges from USA to British characteristic. I'm not sure how well anything so small can actually emulate the sound of a full-sized amp, but the sounds are honest, high quality, desirable tones. Overall, a nice piece of engineering. After a week or so I found a few "sweet spot" settings with my Tele. The Fly3 pushes out some nice clean tones, but it really comes to life with thick, overdriven harmonic crunch. The delay is a nice touch. I do not typically give five stars, but I can't find anything to criticize about this little amp. Sweetwater delivers again - it was once again a pleasure to do business with them and I appreciated the follow up call from Aaron Regenold.

Great Tone!!

Ok it's a "micro amp "but an ant can carry how many times it's weight? And a fly can fly! And this fly can soar!! Really, keep in mind it's almost in the category of a toy something to amuse yourself with but it does have great tone! Great for practicing at a fraction of full on volumes with a large amp but with a tone that makes me want to plug in and play! I have enough experience to know what good tone is and saying any more than that might revel my age. I feel this was worth every penny and am now compelled to check out a more sizable amp in there line. This amp is also very responsive to dynamics. The echo is a nice feature and the range from clean to classic hard rock is in this box. I have very rarely written a product review but felt this little guy deserved one!

Blackstar Fly3-Better than I thought

This is more than a toy. I travel for a living and wanted something besides ear buds and a phone app. This thing has great clean sounds (very Fender-y) and with the ISF function you can get anything from Keef barely breaking up crunch to Dimebag facemelt and anything in between. If you have the need for a small travel amp this is absolutely a no brainer. Would also make a great starter amp for a kid.

Sweetwater Advice

Blackstar FLY 3

But whether you prefer the super saturation of cranked overdrive or the improved dynamics of clean-ish sounds, there's enough ambience to veer from barebones rocking to slapback-like feels or more atmospheric sounds that inspire jangly progressions or soaring leads....
