I have to admit, I've have a bit of biasness against Boss pedals. But for $35.00, I got a black label/black knob MIJ Boss BF-2 and was very suprised. This flanger is very nice. I admit that I bouight this mainly to see if I wanted to add a flanger to my pedal board, with intentions of getting something like a Choralflange later. I don't think this will go anywhere soon though. The FL-2 is a bass classic it seems. There's something about that- it's comforting looking down at this pink pedal with all the scratches and character and mojo. Lot's of bang for the buck too, and I don't really think you can get a much higher quality sound from a flanger, from what I've heard so far.
