Blackstar Fly goes Super …
The Blackstar Fly took the British amp crew’s awesome tones and somehow crammed it into a backpack friendly-size to take anywhere and everywhere. Now they’ve gone a step further and produced the Super Fly with Bluetooth technology, which is a street performer’s dream!
Tiny size, massive performance
The Blackstar Super Fly boasts two (that’s right, two) channels to play with. Channel 1 is equipped with an XLR/jack combi input that allows you to use either a mic or line instrument. Channel 2 handles guitar duties with clean/overdrive options or there is a specially-voiced acoustic setting. Each channel even boasts independent EQ and reverb controls (yeah, there’s even built-in reverb)!
Built-in Bluetooth connectivity allows you to connect to your smart device and play along to backing tracks with ease.
Beef up your output
Delivering 12-Watts output power via a pair of 3-inch linear speakers, the Super Fly packs quite a punch. But it gets better. Blackstar also released a Super Fly active cabinet, which allows you to build a stereo setup without any fuss. We have an option buy the Super Fly with the Active Cabinet for the ultimate setup straight out of the box.
Though they may be small additions, they make a massive difference. There’s a handy built-in back stand to tilt the speaker, ensuring that you’re heard when busking or performing at an intimate gig. The Super Fly runs on a mere 8 AA batteries for convenience and portability. Blackstar offer an optional rechargeable battery back that attaches discretely to the rear of the unit with Velcro, boosting your playing time up to a whopping 15+ hours.
Blackstar have done it again
As with their other NAMM 2019 releases, Blackstar keep the crowd pleasures coming with their excellent Super Fly guitar combo amp. As well as the optional rechargeable battery pack, Blackstar are set to follow up with a range of further accessories including padded carry case and top-hat adaptor for mounting the amp to a speaker stand.
