Nice & simple multi-effect with great sounds

29.04.2016
Having searched for years for a multi-effect pedal that will do exactly what I need and no more, the Fly Rig seems to be my Holy Grail!

I've spent years fiddling with digital multi-effects and amp sims - Line 6, Zoom, Vox, Boss, etc. My gripe with all of them is too many functions, multiple menus, and that slight 'digital sound' you get.

Playing in a ska band that gigs on a regular basis I needed something that will give me a range of clean and crunchy sounds, some reverb, and delay. The boost/hot function for solos is an added bonus.

Having had a good play (I'll be using it for it's first gig tonight) the Fly Rig ticks all the boxes. The sounds I can get out of it are spot on, but there aren't hundreds of pointless presets - who uses most of those? The fact there are no digital readouts gladdens my heart!

Pros - sturdy build, all-in-one construction, stompbox switches, versatile sounds (but not too many options), decent power supply, low-noise (none at low gain settings), colour coded lights in the knobs for each section, tap function the delay.

Cons - no on/off switch, the unit switches on with all pedals armed, no XLR/balanced out, reverb only works with SansAmp section, knobs are tiny (my pretty normal size fingers have trouble gripping them ), and it only comes with 4 silicon knob grippers, when it should have them on each knob.

Bonus Tip: save yourself £7 (the extra cost of 10 tiny silicon knob grippers) by making your own from 5mm internal diameter silicon tubing. This is about £1.50 per metre on Ebay.

I use this Fly Rig mostly in the situations where I need to rehearse and gig without need of my full and big pedal board. It is super handy as it fits in the compartment of my guitar case. It does what it is advertised to do - you have a nice sounding preamp mode for your basic sound - JUST REMEMBER - Sans Amp channel has to be always on - thats your amp, other wise this pedal won't work an you'll end up thinking that it's Plexi drive is useless. It's not - its designed to be used INTO Sans Amp, not your guitar preamp. Then you can push it to 11 with the boost option. In fact it is much more usable if you bypass your guitar amp's preamp stage and plug it directly into FX return - much more manageable sound. Plugged directly into preamp might sound a bit harsh and boomy with some amps. A master reverb dialed to your taste and some basic delay. A huge plus to the delay is the ability to tap tempo - something that even a dedicated basic units do not have in most cases.
Also I use it extensively to record directly into DAW on my PC using external sound card. Has a very convincing speaker emulation.
Overall a good bargain if you need a good sounding multiprocessor to cover your basic needs.
Pros: Good sounding, good tone dials in quickly, very portable
Cons: Setting knobs somewhat too small and very sensible to changes, switches are close and you need to be careful not to switch two in one time accidentally if you have big feet.
