Tiny size, big sound

The FLY 3 Bass combo amplifier exudes frighteningly huge bass tones for its diminutive size. The amplifier's specially designed speaker and speaker cabinet allow the FLY 3 Bass to push enough low end to impress any bassist. And despite being only 3 watts, this little combo amp is also surprisingly loud. Now you won't have to make any tonal compromises when practicing at low volumes. Sweetwater bassists are impressed with this little powerhouse.

Wide tonal range

The FLY 3 Bass works for bassists of all styles and genres. It's onboard EQ control can take you from warm and round thump to a cutting tone that begs you to grab your pick. An overdrive circuit does a great job of sounding like a raging tube bass stack. And the compression control evens out your attack, which can be especially appealing to slap-style players. And if you need even more low end, you just push the SUB button to pile on the warmth.

Convenient practice tool

The FLY 3 Bass excels as a bass practice tool and is simple to use when the inspiration to woodshed stikes. A line input accepts an 1/8" from a phone, laptop, or MP3 player, allowing you to play along with the songs you're working on. The 1/8" line output also functions as the headphone output and is speaker emulated. Run this line right to an input on your recording device and you're instantly sending great bass tones right to your track.

  • Miniture combo bass amp that's ideal for practice

Great amp!

This small, but mighty, amp is awesome! The sound is full and deep, despite the size. It's a perfect solution to practicing without a full sized rig - or using headphones. I'm able to hear my bass without affecting others in my home.

Bigger than a pound of butter, smaller than a box of tissues but sounds way better than either one

I ordered mine with the assistance of Adam. He was helpful and I ordered one. It came QUICKLY ! I'm downsizing, live in an apartment now so MicroCube for my guitar, this for my bass.... Loud enough for me, you can get a wide variety of of tones. I'm still experimenting with it. For playing along with a MP3 or practicing, it's great. I also use it to play my iPod through. Amazing sound for such a small amp. I highly recommend it.
Music background: Still practicing

Easy portable amp

Travel a lot. Needed a decent little amp to carry around to hotel rooms. This amp fits nicely into my luggage and sounds pretty good. Not going to be able gig with it or fill a room with it but that's not what I need it for. Sounds very good albeit a little boxy but it's tiny, really tiny. Sounds comparable to some of the little amps based around 8" speakers I've played but at least 1/4' the size. Perfect solution for me and I don't have to use headphones and can plug in my phone to practice tunes. This is a cool little amp.

Baby bass, big noise

Plugged in my SG bass am was amazed at the sound quality and pureness of this mini bass amp!

Fly3Bass -- pretty solid!

A surprising amount of sound from three watts and a 3"-speaker! The two channels are nice. I'm finding that I don't use the compressor or octaver, though. I'd have preferred reverb instead of the octaver. I also have the Fly3 for guitar and would rate that one slightly higher. In all, though, a great piece of gear and very much worth the price.
