Tech 21 went a little crazy and stuffed everything they could into the Bass Fly Rig, except the kitchen sink, Rhode Island and a submarine...Sleek, compact, and simply awesome, the Tech 21 SansAmp Bass Fly Rig is a tiny tonal titan, thoroughbred professional unit armed with sweet analog tones. In the footprint of a pixie, it embodies an entire, multi-application rig, so you can rule the road, rehearsal or recording gig. No stinkin’ van, no heavy flight cases, no cable spaghetti, no dead weight.
As a pre-amp or stompbox with an amp, for direct recording, and direct to a P.A., the Tech 21 SansAmp Bass Fly Rig is a simple step to the rich, expressive combinations you can use for any performance. There are illuminated minicontrols to show active status, an included power supply and studio-grade, metal footswitches and jacks. They have everything you need and nothing you don’t. Even when you want to use the latest digital supercomputer or a vintage tube amp, the SansAmp Bass Fly Rig cover your butt like yoga pants. It is also the perfect instant back-up rig when your boutique gear goes down just when you need it most.
The SansAmp Bass Fly Rig features the all-analog SansAmp, a ground-breaking amp emulator, speaker and mic simulator will dial-in your favorite sounds for consistent tone every time. Optimized for lush, chiming clean tones with a Drive control to add just the right amount of gain from warm break-up to snarling grind, with an incredibly flexible 3-band, active EQ.
Get a Fly Rig and arrive at your next gig as easily as a happy, magical fairy--with face-melting tones.
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. Whew.
COMP, for compression, utilizes old school, all-analog, FET-based technology, which is inherently warmer, more transparent and musical.
SansAmp,of course, as its center point, with Tech 21's unique Character control that sweeps through the most storied vintage and modern tones. Three-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.
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.
CHR, for chorus, derived from the Tech 21 Bass Boost Chorus pedal, adds choral voicings of two instruments. With a slight delay between, it adds thickness and space.
Chromatic Tuner is within the CHR section. You simply hold down the CHR footswitch to engage the Tuner, which simultaneously mutes the signal path.
