    right now im running off od a Digitech Turbo Flange and im lookin to upgrade to analog. im lookin for somethine that doesnt need a 50 page manual to understand, decently priced ($125 - $175 range), and wont eat batteries like theres no tomorrow, if i dont have an adaptor. what are my options. Also how much of a difference in sound is there compaired to a Phaser???

    I use the Lovetone ? Flanger with No Name, but it does require a 50 page manual and is definitely not cheap!:D Try looking into the Ibanez Classic Flanger; I'm not sure if they are made anymore, but they are sweet and cheap.

    A flanger is more metallic sounding than a phaser. Essentially a flanger is a suped up chorus, whereas a phaser is more of an EQ shifting type of effect.

    Flanger = Airplaine whoosh
    Phaser = Tony Levin's Stick tone

    Boss BF2B, the older brown unit. I love his flang it's rich and lush sounding and you can score a used one for around 50 bucks. Y also don't need a degree to operate it:)
