OVERVIEW

Dial in warm and thick flanging for massive sonic swooshes.

Based on the benchmark sounds of the MXR M117 Flanger, the MXR Micro Flanger guitar pedal features many of the same flanging effects of its big brother, but in a smaller and more convenient size. Originally released in the '80s, this faithful recreation features the same 2 critical controls-a Speed knob to control the rate of cycling, and a Regeneration knob to manage the overall intensity-and stays true to its 100% analog bucket brigade technology for the ultimate in warm and organic tone. The MXR Micro Flanger pedal has been updated with a true bypass switch so you don't lose any tone during bypass. Go from jet plane like sweeps to cool outer space type effects with the MXR Micro Flanger guitar effect pedal.

The MXR Micro Flanger pedal can be powered by one 9V battery (accessed by removing the effect pedal's bottom plate), a Dunlop DC810DC brick, or MC403 Power system (sold separately).

  • True bypass with LED
  • Rate knob

I purchased a flanger because its one of the few effects pedals I did not have yet and was curious.I have had 95% success rate with MXR pedals in the past with sound and build quality and this pedal was no different.
There is a good You Tube video where the MXR phase 90 is A/B'd with this MXR Micro Flanger, check it out to hear the differences explained between the two types of effects . I A/B-tested it myself and found the Micro Flanger sound to be a cross between my MXR - EVH Phase 90 and MXR Chorus. The Micro Flanger had a more spacious but less intense sound than the phaser and added the chimey sound of the chorus in at the same time. Both flange and phase sound great paired with OD or distortion, ( before or after depending on your taste.)
I was hoping to get that jet airplane "swoosh" and it had some of that with the regen ( intensity ) knob at max but not a whole lot. I do not have another flanger to compare this Micro Flange to but also tried it out vs. the EHX Small Stone phaser and the small stone has a more "swooshy" sound it can dial up to me if thats what you are looking for.
The Micro Flanger pedal is quiet engaged and in bypass, no tone nor volume-suck , two knobies for easy dialing in, but not much to look at with the "MXR must have run out of paint colors" -black paint job.

I love the way the micro flanger sounds, but the problem is that when engaged, there is a volume boost. I have placed the pedal in front and through the effects loop. Either way, you will end up with the same outcome. Volume Boost is too loud to handle.

    Comments about MXR M152 Micro Flanger Guitar Effects Pedal:

    Love this pedal!!! Sounds wonderful and at a great price! One of my favorites. Yes there's somewhat of a volume boost when engaged but I would think that is to help cut through the mix. Not a problem for me.

    Comments about MXR M152 Micro Flanger Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I've used a number of flangers over the years, Electric Mistress, BOSS, G-major, Zoom multi-effects and this has been my favorite. Having only 2 controls, the effects are, in some ways, limited. MXR has locked in the manual and width controls on 'ideal' setting. You control the rate and the regeneration. But what it does, it does very well; great warm, rich tone. My current rig is all analog, except for my reverb, and this effect sounds great. You can go from the "Are You Gonna Go My Way" swoosh, to a watery warble. You can't get the really jangley, metallic sound of the Electric Mistress (which I've never really liked). So for me, the range of available tones is perfect and what I've always been looking for from a flanger. It is true that there is a volume jump when engaged, but I've never used a flanger that doesn't have that issue. Like others have said, if you're looking for a thickening and some texture, it's perfect. If you want a huge range of effects, warbles, jangles, and laser sounds, you may want to get the 'full version.' I tried the 117 and found it too complicated and more than I needed. With all the various flangers I've tried, I was always trying to get that thickening effect, and the micro flanger gets me there fast.

    The only reason I give it a 4/5 is because right before I bought this, I saw a like new, used 117 for the same cost as the Micro and wonder if I should have gotten that for the versatility. But, it's a top notch effect.

      Comments about MXR M152 Micro Flanger Guitar Effects Pedal:

      The sound quality works equally well cleaned up or with a high level of overdrive. It's really simple and straightforward. There's not a huge range of variability, but any place you dial in is a very usable sound, especially for my taste. I feel like a little flange goes along way.

        If you just want the Barracuda flanger sound don't buy anything more expensive than this. I also wanted to copy Andy Summers guitar tones with this and it does a pretty good job.

          I have owned many flangers over the years and have to say this is the best sound quality of all of them. MXR has done it again.

          Perfect for a little color

          Comments about MXR M152 Micro Flanger Guitar Effects Pedal:

          Perfect flanger, for a great price
          If you don't need all kinds of crazy flanger and just want to add a little color this pedal can't be beat for the price. It can still get pretty intense if needed, but it is perfect for addinbg a little flange to your tone.
          This is my second MRX pedal.
          In my opinion they are all buily with great quality.
          And you can see there are a ton of old ones out there still working.
          Great pedal for a great price!

          Great for Cover Bands

          By Bruce Bacon

          from Boston, MA

          Comments about MXR M152 Micro Flanger Guitar Effects Pedal:

          I play in classic rock cover band and this pedal does a great job of replicating the flange effects heard over the last 40 years. In a heartbeat you can easily dial in the sounds of Heart, to The Eagles (Hotel California), to Nirvana. I play a '59 reissue Les Paul through a Trans-Atlantic Mesa Boogie and it sounds great. I don't have an effects loop on my amp, but given the true bypass, when I'm not using this pedal, it doesn't alter the tone.
          If you want both simplicity and a good range of sounds, the MXR Micro Flanger fits that bill.
          Very rugged.
          Better sound than more expensive models.
