Tech 21 Fly Rig 5 awarded as “Top Gear”

TopGuitar is proud to announce that the Fly Rig 5 guitar effects pedal from Tech 21 was reviewed in the October issue of the magazine and received a “Top Gear” editors’ award this month. The product was delivered for review by Tech 21 distributor in Poland, Sound Service.

Below are some excerpts from a successful review by gear department editor Mikolaj Sluzewski, which may serve as reasons for the award:

“What would you say for a device that can free you from signal chains, let you become independent from stage backline and forget about the fear of damaging your amp in transport?”

“Compact aluminum board fits into every guitar case or gig bag, you may as well put it in your carry-on baggage. The unit itself is very lightweight, with its name not at all accidentally suggesting a particular helpfulness for musicians traveling by plane.”

“Fly Rig 5 combines the best and most essential features borrowed from a few different Tech 21 products. The main purpose here is to make life easier for guitarists whenever they can’t take their beloved trusty amp with them for a gig.”

The latest issue of TopGuitar magazine is available across Poland in Empik and Ruch press retail networks, in the online store (, and as mobile version for tablets and smartphones using iOS ( or Android ( operating systems.
