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?
