Brilliant
William383, 17.05.2019
I have tried many multi-effects pedals and each time, I came back to my pedalboard system with selected pedals. Consequently, I was rather skeptical about the effectiveness of the Bass Fly Rig, even though I needed something for small acoustic gigs and the rig fitted the physical requirements.
I have to admit that I am now so impressed with the Bass Fly Rig, I have put my pedalboard in storage and I am now using the rig for all types of gigs.

The sound and the quality are brilliant and equivalent to the boutique pedals I spent much more on. I am now considering selling all my pedals and just keeping the Fly Rig.

UPDATE:
Now that I've owned the rig for 11 months, I though it would be helpful to provide my impression of the pedal. From right to left:
Comp: I leave this on all the time. It's not hard to dial in a really good sound. It provides sustain and punch to the sound that I like. It may not be the perfect compressor for the purist, but I sold my Keeley Bass compressor in favour of this pedal.
Boost: I never use it, or have ever found a need to use it.
Sansamp: Very good sound. I marginally preferred the sound from the Darkglass pedal I owned, but not enough to keep it. The Sansamp provides me with what I need, when I need it.
Octa: I have tried MXR, Boss, EH and the FlyRig Octavers, and to date I have not found one that tracks well enough for my ear. In fact, I find them annoyingly bad. I rarely use this section as a Fuzz and it's ok.
Chr: I play a lot of 70s music, so I am very particular with bass chorus sounds. This is definitely one of the best sounding bass chorus pedals I've used (incl. MXR and Boss); it is by far the simplest to use.
Tuner: Tracks perfectly and mutes both the DI and the line out.
Final verdict: I sold all my pedals and pedalboard. I now own a small pedalboard that holds the bass FlyRig, a wireless receiver, and a power supply. The Bass FlyRig fulfils all the functions of my former individual pedals convincingly and in some instances, better.

Tech 21 Bass Fly Rig
27.09.2016
I wanted to reduce all my bass gear to minimum and put everything I need just in my bass hard case, so now I can travel light in weight. Starting from the "comp section" I prefer to name it "sustain section" because it works better as a sustainer than a real compressor. "Sansamp section" it's like the sansamp stomp pedal with a mid-range additional knob and a "bite" button to increase the hi-mid freq. The "effect section" it's almost complete: I personally miss a reverb which for me should have been included.
The double XLR and jack outputs are very useful because I go from the first one to the P.A. system and from the second one to my amp. In this way I can manipulate my sound on stage trying to fit the best i can with the other instrument without annoying the sound engineers.

So much in such a small pedal
24.08.2016
The Tech 21 Bass Fly Rig can be summed up quite simply. A pedal the size of a remote control with the power & tone of a large rig & pedal board.

It obviously comes with the SansAmp function that is so popular but combined with several other functions it is ideal for musicians who need to travel light.

It's a winner in my book.
