    does anyone use these for bass? i really wanna get a flanger to mess with but the BF-2B is somewhat rare, even on ebay. the bf-2 is pretty common and I'm wondering what kinda results i'd get if i used it on bass?

    I'm pretty sure Justin Chancellor uses it. I know tplyons likes it better than the BF-3 IIRC. :)

    Why do I need to post my own opinions if you do for me?! ;)

    Yeah, I love the thing. Tracks really well with bass, and gives a nice subtle to barely wacky swirly sensation that effects pretty much only the highs and leaves the bass nearly intact. The BF-3 is like the bastard child of the BF-2 and BF-2B and doesn't do either one as well as the aforementioned effects IMO.

    Now, who wants to send me one!? (BTW, I like the newer, gray knobbed Taiwanese version better than the MIJ)
