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.

The GAIN control adjusts the preamp instrument level and also the amount of overdrive. When the Clean Channel is selected, low to medium settings will deliver a clean sound and as the Gain is increased the sound will gradually become more overdriven. When the Overdrive channel is selected (OD switch) there will be moderate overdrive at all Gain settings, which again increases as the control is turned clockwise.

The EQ control allows you to adjust the depth of the EQ curve for preferred tonal response, from relatively flat with a slight mid-range boost, through to a formed mid response with a cut at around 400Hz. The depth of mid-range cut is continuously variable between the two extremes. You will find that the combination of the two channels and the carefully voiced EQ result in a huge range of great bass tones.

COMPRESSION is used to subtly smooth out the dynamic range of an audio signal, therefore softening the peaks and attack, as well as boosting the volume of lower levels which then increases sustain. The compression ratio of the in-built compressor is variable so you can dial in exactly the response you want.

The SUB control sets the level of a harmonic generator. This produces an additional low frequency tone that is mixed in with the normal signal. It gives the perception of increased low-end girth and incredible bass from a mini amp. The VOLUME control adjusts the overall volume of the amplifier, turning it clockwise will increase the level.

Excellent product!


Perfect little amp for on the go or apartment lifestyle. Great sound highly recommend this product!! I live in a small apartment and use a lot of different mini amps for my guitars/ bass. Great way to get good tone without blasting the neighbors.



Got my money's worth


Great Quality of sound



Tone in a small package!


Wow! Very impressed with the sound coming out of this tiny box! Great tone in such a small package! Thanks Sam Ash and thank you Blackstar!!!



It worked for what I needed at the time.


I bought this amp for a one time outdoor birthday concert for our Pastor's 93rd birthday. We did this in his driveway as a surprise because indoors was ruled out due to COVID-19. A battery operated amp was perfect for the occasion. the volume was adequate, but the sound left a lot to be desired. It worked for me and I might use it as a practice amp from time to time.



I'll pass


Local Sam Ash fantastic as always. Bass Fly not so great. Didn't like the sound it produced. Just sounded bad and couldn't find a decent setting. Only gave it 2 star because it did produce sound.



Best for what it is!


I use this with my wife's bass guitar. I is awesome in a small area. We took it to Antigua and used it with my iPhone on the beach. It worked great. Price is right, size is unbelievable



I wouldn't buy this again.


It works as well as you can expect a battery operated amp to work. If I had it to do again I wouldn't buy it because, I'm sure the margin of profit has got to be large. It couldn't have cost much at all to build. It is very cheaply made.



Works great with the Carlo Robelli bass ukulele!


I tried many other small battery powered amps with my new Carlo Robelli bass ukulele and this Blackstar Fly3 Bass amp sounded the BEST! Amazingly full bass sound from 3 watts and such a small box, plus there's an option to add a second speaker for total of 6 watts in stereo. Great for practicing or a small group setting!
