Flanger pedal.

Typical Boss features: analog,

rugged, easy to use, etc.


It's pretty easy to use and it's made so you can fool around with the settings... Just try it and have fun.


Its sound is more "liquid" and "chorused" than the BF2.

The overall quality is very good. It's supple and will easily find it's place in the sound. You can almost create a chorus effect with a very slow speed setting. On the contrary, you'll get a "leslie" sound with a high speed setting.

The effect undulates and gives you a wide overall sound.

The only thing I can criticize is that the effect could be a bit more intense. Sometimes I would like to get an extreme flanger but it's virtually impossible. This beast is too kind! But it's good for all sorts of applications as long as you don't want any extreme effects!


It's a good flanger pedal and it also offers a chorus-like color which is a good alternative to the classic swirling sound.
It doesn't sound as dry as the BF2.

Very good pedal.

For your information, you can change the op. amp to turn it into a BF2!
