Tech21 Acoustic Fly Rig
There are lots of options for getting an acceptable acoustic guitar sound. But why settle for acceptable when you can be inspired? If you think using a DI is good enough and you think you don’t need any effects, consider this:
Sounding great improves your playing, which sparks inspiration, which stimulates creativity. Whether you have a $200 or $2000 guitar, the Acoustic Fly Rig will make it sound bigger, fuller and warmer. You’ll easily be able to dial up tones that will make you want to play all night long. It’s jammed packed with useful features: All-analog?SansAmp, parametric EQ, boost, compressor, tap tempo delay, independent reverb. And it fits in your gig bag.
So why settle for just a DI? All Fly Rigs in the series are multi-function for recording and live performances (with an amp or direct to the PA), and exceptionally versatile. Despite its name, the Acoustic Fly Rig is also excellent for electric guitar and bass, when you want clean tones for jazz, country, and blues. From bedroom to stadium, the Acoustic Fly Rig provides ‘round-the-clock ease and confidence for any gig, anywhere and everywhere you perform.
The all-analog SansAmp is, of course, its center point. Sweepable, semi-parametric, active EQ controls provide professional grade tweakability for any situation. There’s a Notch Filter, sweepable from 70Hz to 350Hz, designed to diminish the sensitivity for feedback caused by the resonating, low frequencies of acoustic guitars. A Low Pass Filter, sweepable from 16kHz to 1.5kHz, rolls off undesirable frequencies and artifacts.
Independent Boost function, up to approx 12dB, for solos. Includes a wide mid-range boost for improved clarity.
COMP, for compression, utilizes old school, all-analog, FET-based technology, which is inherently warmer, more transparent and musical.
Dedicated Reverb function emulates the rich ambiance of open spaces, ranging from room to hall.
DLA emulates a warm sounding analog delay. It features Time and Repeats controls and dedicated Tap Tempo footswitch. CHR is a preset chorus based on pitch-shifting technology for a more natural, 12-string-style sound.
Chromatic Tuner is within the EFX?section. You simply hold down the TAP/TUNER footswitch to engage the Tuner, which simultaneously mutes the signal path.
