Overview

Finally after a flood of requests, Tech 21 has developed a bass version of the Fly Rig 5. They put everything they could fit into one multi-effect unit—except the kitchen sink.

SANSAMP
SansAmp, of course, is at its center, with its unique Character control that sweeps through the most storied vintage and modern tones. 3-band active EQ provides professional grade tweakability for any situation. For dirt and grind, Drive adds gain and overdrive. You can also add distortion by engaging the Pre-Boost. And then there’s Fuzz in the OCTAFILTER section. Each method achieves a different variety of tonal madness. You can even use all three at the same time, but be sure to hold onto your shorts.

OCTAFILTER
OCTAFILTER brings an entire 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, there’s more. By bringing in some COMP, you can get infinite sustain like a keyboard bass.

CHORUS
CHR, derived from Tech 21's Bass Boost Chorus pedal, adds choral voicings of two instruments. With a slight delay between, it adds thickness and space.

COMP
COMP (compression) utilizes old school, all-analog, FET-based technology, which is inherently warmer, more transparent and musical.

BOOST
Switchable Pre/Post Boost. Pre-Boost mode interacts with the SansAmp section to beef up drive and distortion. Post-Boost mode increases the overall volume to punch up fills and solos.

TUNER
Chromatic Tuner is within the CHR section. You simply hold down the CHR footswitch to engage the Tuner, which simultaneously mutes the signal path.

Comments about Tech 21 Bass Fly Rig Multi-Effects Pedal:

Great quality and tone that you expect from Tech21. The comp and preamp sections are excellent, as well as the tuner. I wish the chorus section had at least a depth and rate knob. The octa-filter is a bit quirky and maybe slightly ambitious for the footprint. Tracking is at times sub par if you don't have the comp engaged and turned up fairly high. Other than that it sounds great. Better than any of the other bass preamps that they make and way more versitle with the bite switch, mid knob, and compressor. Great as a small footprint board or a lightweight backup.

      Comments about Tech 21 Bass Fly Rig Multi-Effects Pedal:

      The amp emulator itself is good, the compressor and chorus are ok. The octafilter section is a disaster. Fuzz by itself is gated and nasty. Octaver tracks poorly. Filter didn't really do anything for me. Tuner stops displaying after about 5 minutes, so you don't know if it still muted when plugging back in after a break. If you want the amp sim, save some money and get the VT Bass DI instead.
