OVERVIEW

Includes Rate, Depth, Manual and Res knobs.

The Akai Professional Analog Custom Shop Flanger Guitar Effects Pedal is a great example of a classic sound improved. Flanger includes Rate, Depth, Manual and Res knobs in heavy-duty polished stainless-steel housing. True-bypass switching and four adjustable knobs provide precision control.

At first glance Flanger looks a breeze but once explored reveals a perfect storm of sound. The Rate knob sets how often the oscillation effect waveform repeats as well as the resulting pitch and depth of the signal. Depth sets the intensity of the flange effect, ranging from a mellow stir to an intense swirling maelstrom. Manual and Res work in combination to both delay and increase the intensity of the overall effect.

In the right hands, Flanger unlocks a key to the instantly recognizable, cradle-rocking sound of 80's hard rock.

Flanger is powered by the included 9-volt battery or 9v AC adapter (sold separately).

As with previous Akai Professional guitar pedals like the E2 Headrush and SB1 Deep Impact Bass Synth, the Analog Custom Shop line is a collection of pedal effects designed to exacting standards, using the highest quality components. Analog Custom Shop pedals provide rich tone, texture and character to immediately enhance and inspire players of any musical style.

FEATURES
  • Rich 100% analog flanging
  • Depth, resonance, speed and manual controls
  • True Bypass for retaining a pure signal when the effect is disengaged

Comments about Akai Professional Analog Custom Shop Flanger Guitar Effects Pedal:

I bought this during MF's "Stupid Deal of the Day" and I have to say that I LOVED the price, and I love the on-going sales. This thing is WAY over the top. If you want a roaring Jet Engine of a flager, this one is for you, but if you just want a little bit of a "texture" This flanger doesn't dial down very well at all. Sounds OK for a low to mid end device, and I have no complaints when I WANT that over the top - in your face flanging effect. I found the only way to get a more subtle sound from it was to put it in my mixer's "effects loop" and use the mixer's controls to tame it a bit. There's a bit of noise from it too, not a deal breaker unless you are in the studio.

If you want an inexpensive Flanger, this one is OK. But maybe you wanna buy one a bit better for a little more fundage...

Comments about Akai Professional Analog Custom Shop Flanger Guitar Effects Pedal:

I own and have owned many flangers, including two classic flangers. I've never been a fan of them except the MXR for vocal doubling. This flanger has changed that. I like this more for guitar and very elegant for that application. Not for vocals because it colors the sound in a very ac30 sort of way. I would find a way to use this with vocals if it was transparent. It sounds amazing with a very versatile, wide spectrum of sounds that sparkle and chime then venture well into psychedelia. It's very quiet and has true bypass. It also sounds excellent on bass. I'm very happy with the many tones and hope to keep mine forever.

      Phenomenal value as a SDOTD, and a nice pedal at regular price. Good flange sound with multiple ways to color the effect. Not a huge pedal but would have rather had a smaller footprint to better fit a standard pedalboard.

        Very impressed with this pedal. Very quiet, yet yeilds a warm sound. Very versatile for a flanger. Goes from space effects to a usuable chorus and/or rotary type sound.
