Im looking into a bf 2b or maybe an electric mistress or maybe something else...
Brief and very personal assessment of the few flangers I had:
BF-3: decent sounding but a bit too artificial, but I did like the pan setting
SMM: interesting blend of flanger and chorus, but to my ears, it sounded a bit metallic
Marshall Regenerator 1: not a usual pedal around here, but an adequate flanger, if you can live with the typical Marshall sound. Not what I was looking for.
MXR micro-flanger: great sound, but I couldn't deal with the volume spikes.
Don't have a flanger at this time. Combining the chorus and phaser gives me a close-enough sound. And the board is full anyway.
Never count out the old BF-2. Simple, functional, great sounding, and can be had on the cheap...what's not to love?
I use a BF2 and have no plans to replace it. I bought it over the bf3 because people seemed to like the bf2s warmer sound where the bf 3 sounded colder (probably what ^ was talking about).
I've only ever played the one flanger pedal but it's a fixture if my board - take that as you will
I have a BF3. Honestly, I have no plans on replacing it or to try anything else. It does what I want a flanger to do.
yes yes yes yes yes yes!
I've always found that these bad boys slaughter the Boss flangers:
I compared my bf3 to a co-worker's bf2 and felt like the bf3 won hands down. The bf2 was noisier and had less effect with regen at a low setting. I like a body wave with a flanger, not so much treble swooshing above the bass tone. Of course that's just my opinion.
DOD FX-75B. Not a bass flanger, but it does bass well.
The Moog ClusterFlux is a phenomenal flanger, but it's boo-kooz expensive.
I use a ancient yamaha FL10 M
II guitar flander (about 25 years old) on my bass, my favorite Flanger sounds come out of it
I have loved my DOD bass stereo flanger since the 80s. Best one I ever played through.
Line 6 Tonecore Liquaflange
+1 for BF-3
I've tried so many, BF-3 just does too much. I love the pan, if I want a mellower flange I put it on the Standard setting. If I want ridiculous or just want to really cut thru I use the Ultra setting.
Bass and guitar inputs, stereo outs, hold function...
I bought it new when it 1st came out, and I simply can't replace it.
In fact I gave up even trying.
TC vortex flanger is sweet, can dial any sound every made from a flanger. tone print function is cool.
EBS UniChorus. It's both a chorus and a flanger; both sound awesome!
I'm curious if anyone has ever tried the HBE Frostbite on bass? I'm looking into getting one, but don't have the cash right now.
Paging nad...where are ya, boy?!
