OVERVIEW

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.

FEATURES
  • Footswitch for on/bypass
  • Manual, Width, Speed, and Regen controls

The MXR Flanger puts a cornucopia of far-out sounds all at your fingertips. Call and get your M117R today.

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.

    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... ;)

    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.

    Comments about MXR M-117R Flanger Effects Pedal:

    I have fooled around with different flangers, largely digital, but never found any real good sounds with them. This unit however, has some incredible sounds in it. Not only the typical sounds, but some nice metallic sounds, like hitting a thick resonant pipe, to feeling like I am in the middle of an ocean wave, body surfing thru the curl. If you have ever done that you are very aware of the constant hollowness of that sound.

      Comments about MXR M-117R Flanger Effects Pedal:

      I've tried other flangers from other great brands but MXR has proven to be the sound I was looking for. It has a wide range from smooth creamy flange to Top Gun Jet take off to clanging metal sci-fi space ship to everything in between. It plays reallym well with others as well, I love to pair it with the MXR Blue Box and Carbon Copies to get some great 8-bitty sci-fi soundscapes.

        Comments about MXR M-117R Flanger Effects Pedal:

        All I can say is wow! If you want a pedal that can really be felt and heard right away, this is a great one to try. The effects can be changed quite a bit from what is just like a little reverb to crazy space and underwater sounds. A must if you are in a Heart cover band.

          Excellent pedal and this is coming from a mostly non-pedal player. I wanted to expand my soundscape for playing and recording and this fit the bill perfect. The controls are well layed out, easy to use and set up. I am very pleased with the sound and workmanship. It uses 18 volts so it's nice that it came with it's own power supply.

            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 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.
