NGD! Tech 21 Fly Rig RK5
« on: Time Format »

There I was, sitting on a bit of gig money....needing a new guitar wireless....when I stumbled across a Tech 21 Fly Rig RK5. I couldn't help it, I pulled the trigger. Just got it late last night and only played it for a few minutes. It's a pretty cool lil' unit. I'm going to be playing it exclusively this weekend to really put it through the ringer.

Photos and sound clips to come, please stay tooned

Okay folks, I've been playing around with this little gem and I have a quick demo for you. I gotta say, it sounds pretty good, good enough for who it's for.

I apologize for standing so close to the iPad during recording, you can hear my strings a bit too loudly.

Rig Rundown: Epiphone Korina Vee with Seymour Duncan Jazz/JB pickups into Tech 21 Fly Rig RK5, into a Crate PowerBlock 150, plugged into a Hughes & Kettner Vortex 4x12 cab.

N!CE! This is indeed a "Fly-Rig" that fits in a bag-pack! Nice meaty sounds, both clean and crunched. Lets you easily use any venue backline ampĀ“s loop return/power section.
If it was mine I`d add a Chorus pedal directly after the RK5 to widen/deepen things a tad bit up (YMMV).
Neat piece of gear!

I saw a guy put one in his guitar case....it is about as narrow as a guitar neck. Pretty impressive tones for a tiny little unit. I just pulled the trigger on DigiTech Whammy Wah XP 100 to pair with this little monster. that should be able to fit on the floor board and just need to plug into an amp or mixer  :thumb-up:

I can put the Crate Powerblock in one side of my suitcase with all my cords and mics and then have the Fly Rig + whammy pedal on the floor board in the other half of the suitcase. I literally can show up with a suitcase + speaker cab + guitars. No rack, no amp head. Enough to get through a gig.

PS: There is a chorus (detune) effect in the Whammy and you can also set the delay on the Fly Rig to sound very chorus-y.

Yes, it's the RK5 = Richie Kotzen (not sure what the five means, but there are five buttons, so there y'go)
