Tech 21 Announces Bass Fly Rig v2 Multi-Effects Floor Unit
Tech 21’s Bass Fly Rig is being updated for 2021 with version 2. The multi-effects floor unit has a built-in 3-band EQ, chorus, octaver, fuzz, compression, and – of course – the company’s SansAmp preamp sounds.
Its biggest new feature is the choice of the SansAmp Character modes with a SansAmp Bass Driver DI and the VT Bass DI. Tech 21 explains the Bass Driver dishes out classic bass tube amp tones while the VT Bass is more specifically focused on Ampeg-style sounds. Other new features include channel switching for different Drive and Level settings as well as an effects loop for incorporating outboard effects to your signal.
As with the original, the Bass Fly Rig Version 2 has a chromatic tuner, XLR output, and 1/4-inch padded input. It’s housed in an all-metal enclosure and has illuminated mini-controls to show active status.
The Tech 21 Bass Fly Rig v2 ships with an included power supply. It will be available soon for $299.
