Rammstein's Paul Landers and Tech 21 Collaborate on New Signature Fly Rig

Rammstein guitarist Paul Landers has collaborated with Tech 21 on the new PL1 Signature Fly Rig. The unit boasts 2 SansAmp channels—Feuer (dirty) and Wasser (clean)—and features include delay and custom-designed Vibrato effect with tap tempo control, Ambiance with choice of size and two modes of Boost.

Landers has been a long-time Tech 21 user, in particular the SansAmp GT2 and SansAmp PSA, which is prominent in Rammstein’s worldwide smash, "Du Hast." When it came to creating the PL1, Landers told MusicRadar: “[I]t must have taken us a couple of years and about six or seven different models to come up with the final version, which is completely different to any of the other Fly Rigs.”
