    Boss BF-2 or BF-3 are popular here. I have the BF-3. I like it a lot. You can get a chorus sound out of it by setting the rate knob high.

    Does anyone know what kind of flanger Justin Chancellor uses?

    Check out "Forty-Six and 2."

    I prefer the BF-2 over the BF-3, don't know why. I also like the latest Taiwanese version the best.
  8. I have a Boss HF-2 High Band Flanger for sale. Old & scratched but works fine. I think I asked $40 for it, shipped(in my classified ad). PM if interested.

    TC Electronics Stereo Chorus/Flanger. I never really tested something else to be honest, but... Bought for the chorus, but the flanger seems to me to be the best on earth. Simply wonderful.

    Yes, pretty expensive, yes... It's worth it.

    Maybe this?

    That does flanger, chorus, delay, and reverb. Give it a try.

    Has anybody had the pleasure of trying a Paradox through zero flanger? I bet that sounds amazing. The old Mutron flangers with the foot pedal are probably hard to beat (if you can find and afford one).
  12. Im pretty sure I read in an interview with Justin in Bass Player magazine that he used the Boss Bass Chorus CEB-3 on Aenema. I run my CEB-3 set to make the Forty Six and 2 sound, and use the opening riff to soundcheck if I have the settings correct. Goes down a treat in a worship service!

    Nothing beats my vintage 70's ibanez analog flanger. They are hard to find and go for well over $100 used.

    ADA Flanger is the best by far... Ibanez/Maxon FL9 is a decent 2nd, everything else comes next! :)

    Boss flangers sound a little too fake for me. The ADA and Ibanez can nail the "Forty-Six & 2" tone dead-on.

    I also prefer the BF-2. Just seems to sound better. I haven't tried out every flanger under the sun - because this one does it for me, I have no desire to try any others. Cheap and readily available used.
  17. Ibanez FL9 for me...i also really enjoy the flanger on the ehx poly chorus and the ehx electric mistress

    Forgot about the Polychorus, yeah that's pretty killer. Filter Matrix is nice on guitar too!
