hello again 🙂
I have this marvelous effects pedal to write about. Tech 21 Fly Rig 5 v2 Multi-effects Pedal is one of most versatile guitar pedal I’ve ever play with in gigs, if not the previous Flyrig5 tech21 pedal series. hahaha yes, I think I made myself as Tech21 products fans
I know it feels weird since this post is the version 2 while i haven’t post about the version 1 first, but bear with me, i have lots of fly rig 5 to talk about (bought the brit and cali too, don’t worry)
first thing i notice is the knobs are bigger than the first version, surely it’s more convenientit has bright LED Knobs, easier to dial at exact amount we want to. added feature such like XLR output and cabsim mode are very useful in direct-to-PA systems situations, in compact design we got lots of thing covered.
It comes with adapter to power up all those effects in one place so yeah, basically this is a complete-compact pedalboard with much smaller size, ready to rock the gigs anytime
other features such like optional pre/post boost and dotted 8th delay are just phenomenal, surely useful for live performances
okay enough about the features, now we talk about how it sounds. and yes it sounds great, all the features work just fine without any defects. check my Tech 21 Fly Rig 5 v2 Multi-effects Pedal video
it’s a great pedal
and we need a BUT
but i like the earlier sansamps preamp sound. I’ve tried tech21 Fly Rig 5 Plexi, RK5, Brit and Cali version, all the preamps feel stronger than this Blonde preamp on the V2. few loyal users will notice this too i guess, but overall i can’t say much more than this pedal is great, even much better than digital in some cases.
i’ll be back soon with other fly rig 5 pedal. see ya
