Fly Rig 5 BRIT guitar effects pedal by Tech 21

Here comes the BRIT version of the Fly Rig 5 by Tech21. It comes in violet theme, bright knobs and amazing sound. It has the simplicity design like the Flyrig 5 first version, but surely this BRIT has more of something than the first flyrig5 has.

The Design

Looks cool isn’t it? for me the design is by so far the most catchy color, Still with the simple one input and one output, which sometimes we want more features on this pedal. yes, that urge to mix and match the pedals in order tor redefine our tones. it was answered by the last post anyway, about thee fly rig 5 version 2.

The Sound

what about the sound? yes.. by far it is amazing, Flyrig 5 Brit sounds like the plexi one, but with more rich gain. It is more versatile because with more gain, we have wider range of music genre, and Flyrig 5 brit sounds just great on clean setting. i made the shootout on youtube, here it is:

so by far this is my favorite between all of the first version of fly rig 5. FYI for this Fly Rig stuff, i recorded them all directly through to mixer without any cabinet simulator whatsoever. just using DIbox to get stabilized signal only. The result was amazing. i can go to anywhere gig with this pedal, and since it’s soo small, i can carry it without any second thought. just put it into my guitar gigbag and we’re good to go. I can share no words more than these, let’s the sound speaks up by it self.

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
