How To Sound Like Rammstein

There seems to be a lot of activity in the Rammstein camp at the moment with Till Lindemann recording his secord record, guitarist Richard Kruspe releasing his third solo album, ‘A Million Degrees’, the band putting finishing touches on their long await next studio album, and now, Paul Landers of Rammstein has unleashed his very own signature guitar rig, ‘PL1 Tech 21’.

You know how it is with the search for the perfect guitar sound...most players never find theirs - Landers

Landers also says he used this on pre-production for the new Rammstein album “Yes, it was there during pre-production, as we were working on new songs, in the studio as well”

Paul Landers has been a long-time user of Tech 21 gear, both the SansAmp GT2 and SansAmp PSA, which is especially prominent in their worldwide smash "Du Hast." While he liked the format of the Fly Rigs, Landers was looking for a different feature set. Given Paul’s long term relationship with Andrew Barta, it was a no-brainer to collaborate on a Fly Rig to fulfill his individual needs.

The Paul Landers PL1 Signature Fly Rig offers 2 SansAmp channels, one clean and one dirty. Like our other Fly Rigs, it offers the same ease, portability, confidence and multi-functionality for going direct to a mixer or P.A. and as a pre-amp/stompbox in live performances.

I am the type of guy that doesn’t like amps that much, or amplifiers don't like me. When I played through a SansAmp for the first time - it was a revelation - Landers

Speaking to German based music publication, ‘Guitar Magazin’ recently, Landers says “I’m pretty straight forward with stuff like this. I only do things that I like and approve of”

Designed with Rammstein's Paul Landers, it's perfectly suited for the high-octane, exhilarating rock styles that the band are renowned for.
