ATTENTION TO DETAIL
Designed and developed by the team that brought you Artisan and Series One
Rather than just being focussed on its look and compact size and ultimately sacrificing the quality of sound, the FLY 3’s unique design delivers the same tonal balance and feel of a larger guitar amp even at very low volumes.
Countless hours were spent on the design of the cabinet to achieve to give a sonic performance not normally found in a mini amp. The housing is sealed and tuned to ensure optimum tonal response and the material used has been mathematically modelled to have the Young modulus of wood. This retains the bass response usually associated with a wooden cabinet.
The use of a full range driver eliminates the need of a sub woofer. This has the benefit of removing the requirement for a crossover and the negative sonic impact that can have. The key part of a guitar’s tone occurs in the frequencies that are normally affected by a crossover and for music playback the performance is similar to nearfield monitors.
