TECH 21 FL5-BRIT overview

  • 1Description

Adding a decidedly British flavor to the Fly Rig line, the BRIT Fly Rig 5 Guitar Multi-Effects Board from Tech 21 brings a host of tones from across the pond and packs them into a space-efficient chassis measuring shorter than 12" in length and weighing in at around 1.2 pounds. Despite its decidedly slight form factor, the BRIT Fly Rig has an entire heritage of rock and metal sounds inside.

The basis of the Fly Rig 5's tone is Tech 21's SansAmp tube amplifier emulation providing smooth and shimmering clean tones, which evolve into gritty overdriven sounds with the gain knob. Add the British distortion, boost, delay with tap-tempo, and high-quality reverb effects into the mix and you have a rig that can get you gig-ready tones.

Aside from being quick to set up, customizing and tweaking your tones is a simple process. No need to navigate banks and menus, just twist the knobs on the front panel. Using the built-in speaker emulation the BRIT Fly Rig can be used in front of a guitar amplifier or by itself going direct to a PA system for a minimalist setup. So whether you have your own amp or a backline provided for you, the Fly Rig will be able to deliver the goods.

Effects Sections

SansAmp Tube Amplifier Emulator
This onboard emulation has been optimized for lush, chiming clean tones and has a Drive control to add just the right amount of gain from warm breakup to snarling grind, with a flexible 3-band EQ. Low is tuned to ±12 dB @ 120 Hz, Mid is tuned to ±12 dB @ 500 Hz, and High is tuned to ±12 dB @ 3.3 kHz.
The adjustable Reverb is included in the SansAmp section. It is based on the Boost R.V.B. pedal to create the rich ambiance of a vintage spring reverb, without clattering pings, canyons of doom, or other annoying artifacts.
BRIT Distortion
Based on the British SansAmp Character Series pedal, the BRIT Distortion offers up crunchy distorted tones made famous by classic British amplifiers, as a great platform for rock and metal.
Boost Switch
If you need an extra bit of gain for leads, engage the boost switch to add a virtual 12AX7 tube section with up to 21 dB of gain on top of a clean sound for extra volume and bite or over a distorted tone for increased saturation.
DLA Delay
The integrated delay sound is based upon the Boost DLA pedal. It is voiced to give you the sounds of a vintage tape echo and features Level, Time, Repeats, and Drift. Drift adds a random element to the modulation for authentic textures. A dedicated Tap Tempo switch makes it super simple to just tap in the delay tempo that you want during your performance.
