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 2 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.
