Tech 21 Introduces the Paul Landers PL1 Signature Fly Rig

The new multi-effect unit offers two SansAmp channels, Feuer (dirty) and Wasser (clean).

Clifton, NJ (October 9, 2018) -- Rammstein’s Paul Landers has been a long-time user of Tech 21 gear, first the SansAmp PSA and then the SansAmp GT2. The SansAmps were an essential part of the guitar sound on all of their albums, and particularly prominent in their worldwide smash "Du Hast." While he liked the format of the Fly Rigs, Paul was looking for a different feature set. Given Paul’s long-term relationship with Tech 21, it was a no-brainer to collaborate on a Signature Fly Rig to fulfill his individual needs.

According to Paul, “With the PL1 I have everything I need in my pocket. No amp needed for the best distortion sound I know of.”

The Paul Landers PL1 Signature Fly Rig offers two SansAmp channels, Feuer (dirty) and Wasser (clean). Features include delay and custom-designed Vibrato effect with tap tempo control, Ambiance with choice of size, and two modes of Boost. Other features include a chromatic tuner, headphone capability, and an XLR output for direct recording and going direct to a P.A. There are illuminated controls to show active status, studio-grade metal footswitches and jacks, and an included universal power supply. Enclosed in a rugged, all-metal housing, the Fly Rig measures 12.5”l x 2.5”w x 1.25”h and weighs a mere 20.7 oz.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
