    I don't regret my purchase in the slightest, as I got a phenomenal deal. It's got a good enough sound for my ears. Others might not like it so much, but with so many options and settings on this pedal, you can surely find a flange sound that you like. If you're into experimenting with lots of sounds, go ahead and pick one of these guys up. If you're looking for something more traditional and have the cash to drop on it, the Ibanez Paul Gilbert flanger sounds fantastic, but costs much more. For your money, this is a decent unit and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
    The 7 flanger modes on this little box make it pretty feature-packed. Speed, Depth and Regen knobs allow for tweaking of the 7 settings. Points were knocked off for the absence of a Level control, and as well as some of the features being less practical than others(more on this in a moment).
    Physically, the pedal seems well built. The knobs and footswitch all turn smoothly and I happen to like the crazy purple paint job. It's definitely got all the right aesthetics for my taste. Now I'll breakdown all the settings individually.

    Setting one is a nice, smooth flange that I would call the most traditional of the available modes, giving off a nice chorusy-phased out warble that is excellent on lower speed settings. I've noticed that when the depth and regen knobs are turned up past a certain point, the phasing aspect of the sound doesn't really seem to affect the notes you are playing, rather it's just this nameless phase shifting in the background.

    Setting two gives you that airplane takeoff kind of sound, which is a nice feature to have but at the same time it's not something that I've been very successful in implementing.

    Setting three is reminiscent of setting one, but with slightly less intensity. It leans more towards the chorusy side of the flange tone. Beautiful sound, and probably my favorite so far.

    Setting four is called rise/fall, and it behaves very much like a phaser. Pretty decent tone, though again the nameless background phasing is present to a degree.

    Setting five is trigger up. I don't really understand how it works, but it sounds alright. Just another flavor of flange.

    Setting six is trigger down. Also decent, just the reverse of setting five.

    Setting seven is a strange little effect called step mode. There's no way to accurately describe it, so just listen to the sound bite here on the website. I personally like it, though it doesn't have very many practical applications. It's a very unique sound though, and for the experimentally minded guitarist, it's a welcome option.
    I walked into a local music shop the other day to buy acoustic strings, and I saw this pedal sitting there. Prior to seeing it in there, I had no desire to own a flanger. But I figured for the price, it was a good value and I bought it without even playing through it first. I don't know if I would have been quite so eager to purchase it at full price, but in my circumstances, the value is a solid 10.

    The version of this pedal that I purchased had some issues. It kept going dead, at least pretending it was dead, which affected the volume and tone of my guitar. Once the battery was re-seated, the pedal was okay for a while. The only time I used it during a show, the effect cut out halfway through a song. Then the pedal refused to turn off, even though it was not putting out any sound. Needless to say, I've returned the Digi-tech for a Boss flange.

      Comments about DigiTech XTF Turbo Flange Stereo Flanger Pedal:

      Sound is a lot better than I thought it would be.

      Got it on sale and I would have been happy if I paid the full price.

      Easy to dial in an effect and lots of choices are at hand.

      You really don't need a manual to operate it, just mess with the knobs and they are easily identified as to what they do.

      Doesn't feel cheap either, but still doesn't feel like a boutique pedal. I'm not complaining about it though.

      It is technically my second flanger (the first was EHX electric mistress) but it is my first fully dedicated flanger and it is a great purchase. I absolutely love this pedal and everything it does.

      Comments about DigiTech XTF Turbo Flange Stereo Flanger Pedal:

      I bought this pedal when I was in high school because I wanted the "Jet-Flange" effect. I didn't know how to do it that well back then so it kinda became a chorus type clean pedal for me....I eventually sold it. 5 years later I bought the boss bf-2 and was pretty disappointed with it even though it was analog...I ended up trying out the turbo flange once again and I was blown away. You have to read the directions though in order to get a good sound you have to play around with it a little. Ultimately you can still get great clean flanges on almost any setting, but what really sets it apart is the fact that it has the "step flange" setting and an amazing "Jet flange" setting when the knobs are turned right.

      Another benefit is you can pick this up for about $20 on ebay

      Currently this is the only effect I have of digitechs because I'm almost solely a boss/EHX person. I have to say though this pedal crushes the competition on every front!

        7 "easily" selectable modes - (They arent exactly 'wasy' to get the exact sound you're looking for)
        Speed, Depth, Regeneration, and Mode control nobs
        Left/mono and right outs - (same as always, for DIGITECH, great)

        Stage Quality Versatile Flanger

        By IBstrummin

        from Colorado

        Comments about DigiTech XTF Turbo Flange Stereo Flanger Pedal:

        Add this to your sound chain and give yourself an entire new range of sound options.
        Great flanger with 7 voicing settings. Stage ready with sturdy metal case. With level turned all the way down, the XTF produces a subtle flange w/ out hum or hiss to give your sound that extra color. Level up to 3~4 and have yourself a pink cigar, w no additional hum or noise while muting. Classic Jet, deep wah, multi step...
        Full metal construction. It's a DigiTech.
        Less than $100 for your sound chain, a must have.

        Comments about DigiTech XTF Turbo Flange Stereo Flanger Pedal:

        Only Thing I would change is the Box color. Purple is "Flange" color ???
        Needs a Jet Like coloration.(Blue Angels ect...)
        Have not experimented with all the features as of yet ,but found the ONE I was looking for
        an implemented it.
        Meet or exceeds customer expectations as do all Digitech/ Hardwire products.
        Great sounding and does not break the bank(wallet)

        The more I play it, the more I like it.

        By Larry

        from Georgia

        Comments about DigiTech XTF Turbo Flange Stereo Flanger Pedal:

        I've had this pedal for a couple years now. At first I didn't really like it. I couldn't figure out how to get the sound I wanted. One day I was messing around and found some AWESOME flanger out of it. The 7 settings are good for diverse sound, but I still only use like 3 settings. You can make it rise and fall slowly or have a warble like effect. The last setting is really weird. It's based on harmonics but it isn't very accurate so it sounds jumbled and confusing. If you want it to sound good with overdrive or distortion you have to set the EQ on your amp just right and have the pedal set up just right. It sucks some tone and makes the overdrive muddy if you can't figure it out. Clean is beautiful on almost any setting.

        Excellent and I'm picky

        By music1st

        from Mid-west

        Comments about DigiTech XTF Turbo Flange Stereo Flanger Pedal:

        Let me start this by explaining how picky I am. This Flanger replaces 2 others I ordered and returned. No names but they all had 50+ 5 star reviews and I sent them back. Thank God the folks at MF are so great about returns.OK about the pedal, out of the box it looks amazing, sturdy not real heavy, but stout. Plug it in turn it on and instant '80s rock flash back. Playing around with it is great 7 settings but I only use 3 of them. Of course you get that jet plane flange but setting 7 the step setting in leads using harmonics is freaky fun. Add on a uni-vibe to it and it's harmonic paradise. My chain is simple, Wah pedal, vibe pedal, delay and flange into a Vox tube AC15. It creates an incredible wall of sound.

        from New Jersey

        Comments about DigiTech XTF Turbo Flange Stereo Flanger Pedal:

        I purchased this pedal but returned it for a Boss BF-3. The Digitech is not bad, but I thought the Boss BF-3 sounded better overall. I couldn't find a sound that I loved out of this, unlike the Boss. If you don't want to spend the extra, buy this, because it is a good (not great) pedal. If you have the extra and want a better sounding pedal, buy the Boss.
