good flanging pedals?

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by Asa Samuel, Aug 17, 2007.


  1. i'm looking for a flanger pedal that works on bass.

    must be available in the UK

    around £50 pounds but might be able to go a bit higher.

    Thanks.

    Go for a Boss BF2 or BF3. They go for cheap used and sound great on bass!

    Old DOD FX 75 Stereo Flangers are rather nice, I love mine.

  7. +1, you can get so many sounds out of this pedal.

    Admittedly this pedal comes right before the BF-2 in my chain. The FX-75B can get anything from a mean flange to a robot spaceship sound whereas the BF-2 does more of a chorusy subtle flange to a warbley sound.

    The DOD FX72B is another good option. In Walbassplayer's big pedalboard demo video on TB (also on YouTube under TOOLBassPlayer), you can see that flanger in action.

    EDIT: Click HERE for that thread with his video.

    There's also the Digitech Turbo Flange to consider, too...

    ...and who could forget the EHX Electric Mistress - the prize of Pink Floyd (on guitar, anyway)! If size isn't an issue, look into that one. They're also releasing a simpler, compact stereo reissue of it, too (check out the recent EHX pedal threads to see what I mean).

    :confused:

    You mean the FX72B? Or the FX75?

    Or the Turbo Flange? Or the Mistress?

    Or the BF-2? BF-3?

    Agh! Too many choices! :eek:

    You can get the Rocktron Hypnotic Flange for around £60 from Thomann!

    (yes I know I am a Rocktron whore!)

    The FX72B. I wouldn't have told him to get anything else.;)
     
  14. But you said "DITTTO x 1,000,000,000,000,000,000.000,000,000,000...." to the sugestion of the FX75?

    I've always had a problem with this, what makes a bass flanger a bass flanger anyway, the FX 75 adds lowend if anything yet it isn't a bass flange:D

    I personally think it is just marketing ;)
