    I use the Boss SE 50 Flanger effect for
    tunes like 'Stranglehold.'

    Don't like tripping over pedals during a set.

    have three ... Digitech GSP 21 rack multi-effector. Subtle and quiet and stereo. Nice for recording or run in the effect loop. The one in the ART Phat Boy. Nice and thick, Currently my all - around. Old ADA, late 70's vintage. Just over the top flange. You want extreme think flange - that's it. For my uses - studio only. It's too old and ridiculously expensive in the used market. Still the bench mark IMO.

    So the ART sounds prety darned good. It isn't the ADA and it has only two presets, but they chose well when they picked the presets so it works for me when I want 'generic' flange.

    I use the old purple Boss BF-2 flanger. It has a nice thick sound & swirl, it works great with Bass.I only paid $35.00 for it new, It was $69.00
    but I had a store credit to use up on a bunch of
    Tab books I traded in.Here is a pic of my pedal board.

    I like this one. It'll put a flange on just about anything.

    Boss BF-2 Flanger. Paid about £45 for it used. It was immaculate. Seems OK, the only thing I have noticed about it is that at high gains on the amp, there is a sort of whoosing comes through....similar to waves on a beach when you're not playing notes. So I guess it's a bit noisy!

    Might try it through a noise suppressor to see how it goes!
