Shimmer, whoosh, chirp, and blurp!
The Ibanez CF7 Tone-Lok stompbox is highly versatile, capable of producing vintage chorus, flange, and modern modulation guitar effects, everything from shimmering soundscapes to jet plane whooshes. A Krazy switch lets you choose between normal and whack'd modes.
On the outside, Tone-Lok effects are equipped with the Ibanez exclusive "set and forget" Push-Lok rotary pots. Push the knobs down and your tone settings lock securely inside the case”no more lost settings or broken knobs.
On the inside, Tone-Lok pedals feature hi-fidelity components carefully tweaked with the constant input from a new generation of Ibanez players. And all this great stuff comes encased in cool looking, road-tough metal boxes at prices the working player can afford.

It's a great flanger, the chorus is pretty decent as well. I wasn't all to thrilled about the "Wack'd" effect, sounds really...weird. I'm old-school anyways, so I couldn't care less about that effect. Keep in mind that it'll take a while to find the settings you like. Nice pedal.
Sorry, I have to disagree with these other ecstatic reviewers. My CF7 pedal turned out to be total lemon. After plugging it in, it plays for awhile and then shorts out. The first time it happened, I thought it was a bad 9-volt battery. The second time around, I knew this was a piece of crappy junk. Both times, I was left on stage with my electric guitar silent with the rest of the band looking at me funny. As for the sound, I think the chorus is too tin-canned and lacks versatility (I don't use the phaser). I've never had a problem with my Boss pedals, so I think I'll stick with them.
I've owned two different Ibanez CF7s over the last 6 or so years. Quality-wise, they're alright but no comparison to Boss or Digitech. I did eventually have a problem with it not responding correctly when switching on and off. I recently purchased another solely for the "ring modulator" emulation that this pedal can make when all knobs are turned up on the Wack'd setting. It makes great noise (which is what I use it for), but for practical chorus and flange effects it's simply weak compared to it's similarly priced contemporaries (Boss and Digitech). So if you want something for experimenting give it a shot but don't expect this to be your permanent touring piece for chorus/flange effects in a mainstream band, it just won't cut it.
I Bought this pedal, and it isn't that great. The chorus effect, won't go into a deep chorus, nor is it that controllable. The flanger effect if better than the chorus, but still not great. It dosen't give you much controll. The wack'd switch is a complete piece of @%#^. Unless you want your playing to sound like crap, don't turn on the wack'd switch. The price is pretty good, so it kind of evens it out a bit. I strongly suggest staying with the boss chorus and flanger, and any effect for that matter. (I also suggest that you don't buy an effect combo like this one. Buying them sepperatly is more expensive, but totally worth it.)
This pedal kicks ass, especially for the price! It's a chorus and a flanger pedal put together for the price of less than even one pedal. It has a switch for C/F, of course, and also has a switch: Normal/Wack'd. Normal is your normal chorus and flanger, with perfect sound, but the four control knobs, which lock down to avoid accidents, can change the sound alot also. Change to Wack'd, and you get the craziest sounds ever. It sounds like someone put a pitch shifter in there somewhere. Great for KoRn songs.
The Ibanez CF-7 is a great pedal for a small budget. I happened to find a cool vibrato setting that you can achieve by setting all of the knobs to 50% and putting the switches on chorus/wack'd. You can adjust the width of the vibrato by tweaking the delay time knob.
This is a cool lil toy, I got it two years ago, and I still use it religiously. It's a good chorus effect, in my opinion better than the Daelectro Cool Cat I used to own. The flanger has an amazing tone. Tone-Loks are a big part of my effect rig, mainly because of the push-in "set or forget" knobs. The wack'd mode is great, I love "Noise-core" so if you think this yesterdays pedal think again. There's a great deal of good sounds that come out of this little box!
I use the CF7 in my pedal board for my keyboards. The krazy effect helps in adding a level of synthesis to my synth-based key sounds. The chorus setting on normal gives a little extra "oomph" to my chord progressions and straight key lines. This pedal definitely gives me a better definition of what I want in sound than my Line 6's preset Chorus/Flanger effect. As a sound manipulator this pedal will always have a welcome place in my rig.
Good basic chorus/flanger deal, will save you from buying both-you just have to slide a switch on the face of the pedal to go from chorus to flange-it will do a good job of chorus type stuff, for acoustic and distorted sounds and also get the Van Halen sound about 90% accurate, also the suggested settings are nice..BUT, here is the thing for me: I turn all the knobs to "0", leave the switches on flange and normal, and leave it on all the time..I run it in front of a B52 rectifier and it gives me my sound!!
I've used this box through several years now, and I've found it to be useful, even awesome, if you know how to use it correctly. Play it through any amp (tube or SS) and if you know what you want as far as flange and Chorus, it will deliver it. The adjusment knobs are sensitive, but that means you have quite a bit of variance to the tonal adjustments.I own tons of top notch pedals. this one is STILL in my lineup, even for studio work. Hey, for this price, what ya gonna say?
Ok, so Ibanez has come up with a pretty good idea in their ton-lok line up. The Chorus/Flanger pedal can create many different sounds that will add alot of color to your guitar tone. The best feature is the wack'd selection. This is what makes the pedal so versitle. Once you find a good setting in any mode, the ton-lok system allows you to keep that sound without losing track,since we all know how tempermental the slightest nudge of a knob can be annoying.... Anyway, for the guitarist on a budget, this is a great buy... however, you can't select between chorus and flanger modes just by stepping on it, so at some point one may want to get another chorus or flanger pedal and use the ibanez one for certain specific sounds.
Just so you know, because I see another reveiw posting it as a phaser, its a flanger.There is a difference.A flanger is a lot less defined then a phaser, a little more wooshing going on too. Ive been using this thing since it came out and I can say its sound isnt the best, but it is good, and for crazy sounds, yes the whacked mode is awesome.Mechanical sounds can be made, the jetsons car sound can be made, etc.It does mud your tone a bit but this is the thing-your tone is so twisted and tampered with by the effect it doesnt even matter.You use this pedal for unconventional needs, and it gets the job done.The normal setting is an ok chorus, and Im not a big fan of flangers anyhow, I only use that on whacked.You can tweak a lot too. The only bad thing is after I have used it so much I pretty much broke the on/off switch, so you really have to stomp now.Im going to by another one soon.People who like a little crazy sounding bs should buy it, not people looking for a traditional modulation effect.
I've owned this pedal for a year now and I think this it's one of the best chorus pedal's on the market and the features are amazing!
I got this pedal from a friend of mine who didnt like it but he also didnt know how to set up a good sound in it, thats what a lot of people will do to things they will get something and not like it and rate it bad because they do not know how to set it up, i love this pedal with a passion it can make such a creamy chorus effect if you want and the flanger is pretty awsome 2, heres some of the settings I've mad up for it you should try em out if you ever get the cf7, 10,0,10,10 RICH CREAMY 7,8,4,2 RICH CREAMY 2 4,6-10,10,4 MELLOW CREAMY7,6,5,0 SWEET TEARS7,10,5,10 EMOTION TALK Those are some of my favorite settings for the cf7 seven if any of you have or are getting one try those out!! Peace
Very nice chorus and a pretty good flanger. Also includes that funy sounding wack'd mode.Maryln Mansion uses this pedal but I have seen it a few dollars short at places.
This pedal will get the job done but not an excellent chorus or flange pedal, good for beginners but if you're looking for something to use with a stack or half-stack this is not the pedal for you.
I went into guitar center tried every chorus and flanger pedal from $50 to $20 the funny thing is, a $60 dollar pedal beat em' all!!! Un-godly tone and control at the fraction of the price.
It's good if your a beginner, but if you're more into your tone, you'll realize that it messes with it, and this pedal is not the best. I like my boss flanger and chorus pedals a lot better, they sound a lot more natural.
I am not a big fan of modulation effects all I need are the basic effects. The basic effects are solid and surprisingly, not too watered down, although compared to a market standard, like boss, these effects don't stand a chance. The "Krazy" mode is pure gimmickry. It is not necessarily a unique feature to this particular box. If you are looking for something more in your chorus or flange pedal, save your money for something better.
This pedal is 75% good and 25% not so good. The bad part about this pedal is the flanger. They definitely could of put more work into the flanger, but the Chorus makes up for it. The Chorus is very good and sounds really cool when you turn it to wack'd. The chorus part makes cool Nivana sounds then when wack'd is on it makes a Korn sound. The older Korn, not the new stuff.This pedal is worth getting for the Chorus and the wack'd setting. If flanger is what you want, look elsewhere.
