The M-117R: a reissue of the infamous original.

Back by popular demand, the MXR M-117R Flanger creates a variety of wild sounds from dynamic jet plane or cool space effects to short delay, chorus, and vibrato. You have complete control of the filter so you can sculpt the sound you want. Back off the Width setting to zero to disengage auto-sweep, then use the Manual knob to physically place the effect anywhere along the frequency spectrum! Use with guitar, bass, keyboards, and vocals.

The M-117R effects pedal has 4 knobs and a footswitch. The footswitch toggles the flanger effect on/bypass (red LED indicates on). The Manual knob selects the frequency center of the effect when auto-sweep is disengaged. The Width knob at zero disengages auto-sweep, but when you rotate it clockwise, it increases the total phase sweep of the effect. The Speed knob modulates rate of effect. The Regen knob feeds the effect back onto itself at adjustable intensity, increasing the total phase effect.

Powered by battery or included Dunlop ECB-004 AC adapter.

  • Footswitch for on/bypass

      Comments about MXR M-117R Flanger Effects Pedal:

      When I recieved this pedal in the mail I was blown away by the way it sounded! I was looking for that EVH Unchained sound and I got it. Yes I am a huge Van Halen fan but this pedal is no one trick pony by any means. I thought about buying the EVH flanger since I already had the EVH phase shifter. But when you have a friend that played in a Van Halen tribute band and knew the settings there was no need for me to get the EVH one. So I got this one. I mainly use it on rhythms when Im looking for that "Sound" Every one knows what Im talking about. But all in all Best Flanger on the market. MXR is best of the best.... Accept no Substitutes!

        Comments about MXR M-117R Flanger Effects Pedal:

        This one is quieter, more convenient on the pedal board than the original plugin model (which I owned in the early days of rock & roll), and seems to sound just fine. Somehow for me beats all the fancy clones and boutique stuff - a good 'ole dirty boy pedal that adds some vintage grit... ;)

          Comments about MXR M-117R Flanger Effects Pedal:

          This pedal is one of the "big three" all-time classic flangers, including the EH Electric Mistress and A/DA Flanger. The MXR has the advantage of being more compact than those other units, especially the Mistress. In my experience, the MXR sounds a little better than the others when used with overdrive or distortion, as well.

          This pedal can be used for far more than just "Unchained" imitations. I actually use it most for thick chorus tones that sound really nice clean or with distortion. However, when more extreme jet plane sounds are called for, the MXR will do that, too.

          As far as I know, this unit is the same as the EVH model minus the graphics and "Unchained" switch.

          Comments about MXR M-117R Flanger Effects Pedal:

          A solid versatile flanger that triples as a chorus and tremelo pedal too and other effects in between. Very good quality sweet tones!
          A great sounding solid pedal with loads of tonal versatilty
          The quality is top notch. This thing is likw a Sherman Tank!
          It was a fantastic value for me, I got it at a great price. It would still be a great value even without all that.

          My First Effects pedal

          Comments about MXR M-117R Flanger Effects Pedal:

          best in its category
          Got this pedal M117 in the late 70s. Still have it and still use it . Of course mine is not a reissue. You can get so many great sounds and you dont have to pay an arm and two Axs.
          This pedal will hold up for a life time.

          Great Flanger

          By zapkat

          from Arizona deserts

          Comments about MXR M-117R Flanger Effects Pedal:

          Overall I like the MXR M-117R Flange Pedal because; it's fun to use, has alot of options, built like a tank & lite as fether, great bang for your buck, and looks kool too.
          There is only one thing that could be a slight inconvience for some. In order to mount on a pedal
          board, you must remove the two battery boxes, befor applying the velcro on the bottom of this pedal.
          I also recomend heat shrink tubing over the battery plug-ins. Don't want any shorts across the board.
          Thank you Dunlop/ MXR for another great pedal.
          I am having a lot of fun with the MXR M-117R Flanger. There are four adjustment knobs, all are Very sensitive, and each one efects all the others. New production Flangers now have two battery boxs on the bottom. No more unscrewing the back to change the battery{s}. The M-117R also comes with a 18v power supply, and rubber caps for the knobs. All in all what more could you ask for.
          I almost forgot, the white lines on the knobs Glow in the dark.
          The MXR M-117R Flange Pedal is one of many MXR pedals on my pedal board. Dunlop uses Quality components for all there products, and I have never had trouble with any of my pedals.
          This MXR pedal is both light and strong, I expect to be using this pedal for many years to come.
          The MXR M-117R Flange pedal is not the highest priced or the lowest priced.
          But bang for your buck, it is the best priced Flange pedal.
          Where ever you buy MXR's M-117R Flange, you can always return it.

          Simple The Best

          Comments about MXR M-117R Flanger Effects Pedal:

          This pedal is really beafy. Its the only Flanger I've pluged up to that has really impressed me. I don't usually go for Swirly type pedals but after hearing it, I had to have it. It adds just the right tone for alot of the special parts in your songs. Really puts the Atomic Punk in your rig, Check it out!

          Best Flanger

          Comments about MXR M-117R Flanger Effects Pedal:

          I have had my MXR 117 Flanger for almost 20 years now, before ED VH bought all of them and converted them to his stripped motif ones. I love the swirling sounds you get, and the airplane taking off sound, like the classic VH Unchained sound that everyone is trying to get.

          Awesome Flanger

          Comments about MXR M-117R Flanger Effects Pedal:

          This is one of the best flangers I've used. It has a wide variety of sounds, particularly when adjusting the Manual and Regeneration knobs. It's also pretty quiet. All pedals have some white noise (hiss) and this does but it's not bad at all.For those who are comparing flangers: Do NOT get a Boss. They sound very thin and metalic. I still don't understand how a company that makes great chorus pedals can't make a good flanger.I also like the Ibanez FL9. It's a little more chorus like, which is great for clean tones. However, it is VERY noisy in front of an overdriven amp. That's where the MXR shines. It has less than half the noise level. MXR makes great stuff. Highly recommended.
