Jared James Nichols partners up with Blackstar for limited-edition mini amplifier

A versatile mini-amp that can also doubles as a speaker.

Blackstar has released a signature limited edition of the popular Blackstar Fly 3 mini amp with blues ace and frequent collaborator, Jared James Nichols.

The JNN 3 offers ‘mini’ Blues Power in a desktop format, and comes in his signature green colour, with the front of the amp in an eye-catching gold.

The limited edition amp offers two-channels, clean and overdrive, that you can access via the Blues Power switch.

Additionally, the three-watt combo platform can be taken anywhere as it is also battery powered. It can also be used as an external audio source for listening along with its headphone jack and, with MP3 input, it can be used as a portable speaker.

It is expandable, too, by adding another Fly 3, you can have a six-watt stereo rig.

The amp also features a tape-style delay effect and the patented ISF tone control, an in-house feature Blackstar is known for. This sweeps the amp’s tone profile from British amp characteristics to one that’s more akin to American-style amplifiers.

Last October, Blackstar teamed with Swedish speaker makers Audio Pro for a special ‘guitar amplifier’ edition of the Drumfire home HiFi system. The consumer listening product was designed to bring “the excitement of live sound” to listeners at home.

Blackstar’s JJN 3 compact amp is available now at £79.
