Tech 21 Fly Rig5 Features:

 

  • SansAmp tube amplifier emulator, is pre-voiced forclean tones. It includes 3-band active EQ, Level, and Drive to adjust the overall amount of gain and overdrive
  • Reverb, within the SansAmp section, is based upon the Boost RVB pedal. It emulates the rich ambiances of a vintage spring reverb without clattery pings, canyons of doom, or other annoying artifacts
  • Plexi, based upon the Hot-Rod Plexi pedal, brings in the organic distortion of a stock ‘68 Plexi and includes Level, Tone and Drive controls
  • Hot, within the Plexi section, kicks in up to 21dB of pre-amp gain. It can be used independently to boost the SansAmp and/or DLA functions, as well as on its own to boost the gain of your amp
  • DLA is based upon the Boost DLA pedal. It is voiced to give you the sounds of a vintage tape echo and features Level, Time, Repeats,and Drift, which adds a random element to the modulation for authentic textures. A dedicated Tap Tempo switch makes it super simple to just tap in the delay tempo you want during your performance
  • All analog signal path; reverb and delay are mixed in parallel
  • Get 5 “must-have” gigging pedals for 1/3 the cost at 1/3 the size, without sacrificing pro quality tone
  • All metal housing in gunmetal finish

TECH 21 FL5 Overview

 

Pack five Tech 21 effects and SansAmp emulations into a chassis that can fit in a small pack and you get the Fly Rig 5 Guitar Multi-Effects Board. Coming in at shorter than 12" in length and weighing around 1.2 lb, the Fly Rig 5 is meant for gigging on the go with minimal setup and teardown time while still getting great tones.

 

The basis of the Fly Rig 5's tone is Tech 21's SansAmp tube amplifier emulation providing smooth and shimmering clean tones which evolve into gritty overdriven sounds with the gain knob. Add adjustable Plexi distortion, boost, delay with tap-tempo, and high-quality reverb effects into the mix and you have a rig that can get you gig-ready tones.

Aside from being quick to set up, customizing and tweaking your tones is a simple process. No need to navigate banks and menus, just twist the knobs on the front panel. The Fly Rig 5 can be used in front of a guitar amplifier or by itself going direct to a PA system for a minimalist setup. So whether you have your own amp or a backline provided for you, the Fly Rig will be able to deliver the goods.

Effects Sections

SansAmp Tube Amplifier Emulator
This on-board emulation has been optimized for lush, chiming clean tones and has a Drive control to add just the right amount of gain from warm break-up to snarling grind, with a flexible 3-band EQ. LOW is tuned to ±12 dB @ 120 Hz, MID is tuned to ±12 dB @ 500 Hz, and HIGH is tuned to ±12 dB @ 3.3 kHz.
Reverb
The adjustable Reverb is included in the SansAmp section. It is based on the Boost RVB pedal to create the rich ambiance of a vintage spring reverb without clattery pings, canyons of doom, or other annoying artifacts.
"Plexi" Distortion
This distortion sound is based off the Hot-Rod Plexi pedal and provides the dirty side of the Fly Rig with rock tones that are reminiscent of the organic distortion of a stock '68 Plexi and includes Level, Tone and Drive controls.
"Hot" Mode Boost
If the plexi distortion still isn't enough the Fly Rig can be kicked into "Hot" mode with up to 21dB of pre-amp gain. The "Hot" footswitch operates independently to boost any of the Fly Rig sections whenever you feel the urge to punch it up.
"DLA" Delay
The integrated delay sound is based upon the Boost DLA pedal. It is voiced to give you the sounds of a vintage tape echo and features Level, Time, Repeats, and Drift, which adds a random element to the modulation for authentic textures. A dedicated Tap Tempo switch makes it super simple to just tap in the delay tempo you want during your performance.
