TopGuitar is proud to inform, that the October issue of the magazine features a review of Tech 21 Fly Rig RK5 and OMG Richie Kotzen Signature Overdrive guitar effects pedals, which have been awarded with “Top Gear” editors’ award. The products were delivered for review by Tech 21 distributor in Poland, Sound Service.

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

“These red housings attract attention with a classy look, and inside they hide large sonic possibilities, aimed not at overwhelming their competition with for show impressiveness but rather delivering guitar players a set of useful sounds in the most practical package.”

“I don’t regard the Tech 21 OMG strictly as a treat for Richie Kotzen’s fans – which it undoubtedly is – but in my humble opinion, it is one of the most interesting and versatile overdrive pedals on the market today.”

“Tech 21 RK5 is an alternative to the Fly Rig 5 and a convenient solution for taking your whole basic setup on the road without the need to lug a big pedalboard and amplifier with you.”

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.
