These are some of the best amplifiers that can be played wirelessly through Bluetooth or Wi-Fi and can also act as a Bluetooth speaker for guitar, allowing you to stream music, play backing tracks or, with the aid of a wireless receiver, play guitar without the use of a guitar lead.
1. Blackstar Super Fly Bluetooth Guitar Amp
The Blackstar Fly series of amplifiers is already an incredibly popular line of guitar amps, so it made sense that they’d bring out one of the best Bluetooth guitar amps available today.

As a Bluetooth speaker for guitar, it’s got an incredible range of tone considering its small size. The 2-channel design features a combi input that can accept an XLR or line-level instrument as well as a guitar input that is switchable between acoustic and electric. The latter channel also features an overdrive function so you can really dig in when you’re jamming. Both channels feature independent EQ and reverb controls so you can sculpt your tone.
