Tech 21 Bass Fly Rig V2

An updated all-in-one setup designed for portabality.

With a Bass Fly Rig, you have an easily transportable solution to getting rich, expressive combinations you can use for any gig --on stage or in the studio, whether it's around the corner or across the pond, whether the backline is top-drawer or bottom shelf. The indispensable, all-analog SansAmp heart is what makes a Tech 21 Fly Rig a true Fly Rig and enables you to go direct to a PA or studio mixers and computer interfaces.


With the Bass Fly Rig v2, you now have a choice of SansAmp Character modes: SansAmp Bass Driver DI for a variety of classic bass tube amp tones, or VT Bass DI with a more specific focus on Ampeg-style tones; Channel switching for different Drive and Level settings --go from clean to dirty, not-so-clean to not-so-dirty, or very dirty to downright nasty, or any other pairing in between; and an Effect Loop to facilitate incorporating additional outboard effects.

Other features include 3-band active EQ, compressor, chorus, octaver and fuzz. The Bass Fly Rig v2 also provides a chromatic tuner, XLR output, and 1/4-inch 4.7megOhm/10k Ohm padded input to deliver the full sound of piezos. Housed in a rugged, all-metal enclosure, the Bass Fly Rig v2 will easily fit in your gig bag or backpack. There are illuminated mini-controls to show active status, an included power supply, and metal footswitches and jacks. With the Bass Fly Rig v2, no arena is too large and no stage is too small. It has virtually everything you need and nothing you don't. Just grab it and go.

The profoundly prolific guitarist leads his band of tricksters through a surrealist sonic exploration of deep, esoteric rhythms and intricate interplay on Thisness.

On his new album Thisness, Miles Okazaki is credited as playing guitar, voice, and robots. If you imagine that the reference to robots is some sort of artsy kitsch—like trapping a Roomba Robot Vacuum into a tight space to sample its struggles as it percussively barrels into the four walls—you’re very far off the mark. Okazaki—who has an elite academic pedigree with degrees from Harvard, Manhattan School of Music, and Julliard, and currently holds a faculty position at Princeton University (after leaving a post at the University of Michigan, to which he commuted weekly from his home in Brooklyn for eight years)—wasn’t kidding.
