The original Fly Rig, introduced in 2014, was a true game-changer for players in all categories, from touring pros to bedroom hobbyists, and expanded into a series. Each Tech 21 Fly Rig is much more than a pedalboard. In a single pedal. And no board. Less than 13 long and weighing just over 20 oz., each sleek, compact unit embodies an entire rig. At each core, is the all-analog SansAmp, which makes it possible to go direct to a PA or studio mixers and computer interfaces. For effects, you have the essentials and the ability to add some fun stuff, too. What you dont have are crackling patch cables, dying batteries or ground loops. No stinkin van, heavy flight cases, cable spaghetti, and no dead weight. No stressing over what to pack and agonizing over what to leave behind. No dreading cheesy backline loaners and overheating at the mere thought of your touring rig going down. With a Tech 21 Fly Rig, you can relax. For fly gigs across the globe, jamming at the local hang, and last minute recording sessions, youll be the first one ready to go. Just pop your Fly Rig into your guitar case or backpack and head for the door.
The expanded SansAmp section features 3-band active EQ and provides professional grade tweakability for any situation. The Character mode switch offers a choice of voicings within the bass tube amplifier sound spectrum. Channel switches between 2 different Drive and Level settings for when its time to kick it up a notch, or two, or three, or Theres also a Bite switch which activates a presence boost to provide extra clarity to the top end.
Octave brings a re-invented pallette of expression with a crazy amount of possibilities, from Minimoog®-style synth to funky town. The controls interact so that you can get dynamically-filtered clean, fuzz, and octave, as well as octave and fuzz together. When Q is at minimum, Range becomes a high-cut tone filter for different versions of clean, fuzz, octave, and octave and fuzz together. You can then blend any of these combinations with your direct signal via the Mix control. But wait, theres more. By bringing in some COMP, you can get infinite sustain like a keyboard bass. Whew.
Adds the choral voicings of two instruments. With a slight delay between, it adds thickness and space.
COMP, for compression, utilizes old school, all-analog, FET-based technology from the 50s and 60s, which is inherently warmer, more transparent and musical.
Simply hold down the Chorus footswitch to engage the Tuner, which simultaneously mutes the signal path.
