    I’m going to see what I can pick up at the Philly Guitar show this weekend.

    Stay tuned!

    So if you've gone this far without one, a Flanger is definitely NOT part of Vic's )You) signature sound. I presume you are getting one for covers. If that's the case, maybe it will be the sweetest sounding one. And then again, the sweetest sounding one may not get you close enough on said covers. Use your ears and see if you can try the choices on all the songs you want to cover. Then there will be no looking back.

    Nail it! :fingersx:

    I never use a flanger. But, inspired by this thread, I found the Jet Flanger and EVH style flanger lurking in the AX8. Similar to the Phaser models in the AX8, the Flangers are :wow:. Sorry for the OT.

    Vic, you will need to add Unchained to your set list along with Barracuda to justify the Flanger. :lol:

    I'm not s huge fan of flangers but my buddy has the Chase Bliss one and it sounds pretty damn cool. Plus you get a lot of mileage out of those little dip switches on the back. It is kinda pricey though so you might want to go the used route.

    Brought a MXR Micro Flanger home from the Philly Show today. For $70, how could I go wrong?

    Thanks for all the suggestions and advice!

    Good deal. If I do upgrade from the one Chris gave me that's the one I will likely get.

    Have you dialed in the 'Cuda yet? I think distortion/muff-fuzz--->flanger is my favourite pedal combination. Sounds monstrous with drop D tuning.

    I recorded this yesterday and I want to do it a few more times and mix the pedals around a bit

    A flanger that can do Prince, Robert Smith, and Pat Travers in one box.

    I had one of the first 75 Paradox Flangers out there. Decided to get on that wait list instead of a Klon. I think Dave does great work, but the Paradox wasn't my thing.

    There are Flangers and there are Flangers. For 9volt I like the MXR Micro Flanger for basic stuff. The old Dod's were probably my favorite of the 9V's, but I hate Dod switches. Much maligned and overlooked the BF2 is surprisingly good.

    For Pluggers either the ADA or the MXR. If I had to choose I'd go ADA, although I don't know if the reissues sound as good as the originals?

    While I love Dinosaur Jr., I've never bonded with the Electric Mistress.
