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.

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 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.

              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.
