Same circuitry and coveted flanging effects of the original '80s unit but constructed to closer tolerances for more consistency from unit to unit. If you've been hunting for an original but couldn't find one, or couldn't afford a high asking price, now's your chance to bag this '80s favorite. Might even be better than the original.

This is clearly a chorus pedal, which all flangers are at core, but this one shines. It sounds like butter-- it really swirls around your tone, better than the boss, but only for creating a signiture sound. for use clean mainly-- but sounds fine otherwise
I really like this pedal because it sounds good on virtually every setting I've tried. There's enough variation to get a number of great textures and just about no noise! I gave it a 4 for quality because of the cheap plastic battery cover that doesn't fit very snug to the unit. Other than that the box appears to be solid and worth the money.
I used to own an MXR Flanger and a Boss BF-3, and I think this one is better than either of those ones. I will be keeping this pedal for a long time.
well, I got this at the guitar center for 20 bucks. I thought... what the heck twenty bucks, open up the box, plug in and bam. its good stuff, alot of options and different sounds you can get from the thing. Anything from something like a phaser to a chinese sounding sound. I would recommend it.
One of the best buys I have ever had. Great sound quality, and I love how it's analog. It gets watery and chorus-y at the trough of the sweep, which is very cool. One thing I highly appreicate but is seldom noticed is the 3 trim pots inside. Very useful for diling in your perfect tone. Built like a tank, great quality parts; it is, afterall, an Ibanez product. Only complaint is that it's a little noisy with distortion, but that's not that big of a deal since there are some pretty affordable noise gates out there. Overall, fantastic pedal.
an awesome flanger in all aspects. four knobs really gives you alot of sounds to choose from. this flanger easily recreates classic flange sounds from guitarists like eddie van halen and tom morello. the casing could stop a bullet and the yellow paint looks awesome. alot of people say MXR makes the best flanger but i disagree. ibanez steals the show with this one.
This little Flanger is pretty good. I bought it used for $30 so it doesn't "have" to deliver at $115 or higher, but it does... so I got one great deal. I use it often, with my Maxon OD-820 and Strat... I play a lot of heavy Nu-metal and it's not ideal for constant play but is great thrown in the mix every now and then. It is justifiable at it's cost, and is simple to control. The batter life is better than most, but you really should power this one. I didn't score it 5's because I have had some digital flangers on a Zoom 505 and 505II that were pretty comprable, and at no cost compared to this, but it's boss counterparts are just as good, and similar in price. I'd like to go all boutique or somewhat older effects (because I like the quality and craft put into them). This is a heavy duty highly quality MIJ pedal, and I'm a proud owner!
This is the most versatile and best sounding flanger in this pricepoint. It's rich and warm analog swirls can be extreme or subtle depending on settings. This can give you a lush chorus or a jet type flange. Most flangers are very intense and the digital ones are just plain aweful. I get great Andy Summers tones out of it especially when combined with a MXR Dyna Comp. Those two pedals were made for each other!
This is what you want in a flanger. This thing picks up where the rest of the weaklings left off. Performs a very subtle, deep flange to the over the top "Jet" sounds. Able to take a beating because its built like a brick. Don't settle for the wannabee's.
What a awesome flanger pedal. It is kinda high price, but worth it. (every penny) This flanger pedal is very warm sounding and everything in between. I can get the Police to EVH sound from this this pedal and much more, just a awesome pedal. I set the regen and speed and 12 O clock, width and dly lvl at max for that warm flowing Police sound. And for that EVH sound Speed 11 O clock, width 9-10 O clock, regen maxed, dly lvl 1-2 O clock, BAM!!! EVH unchained. I could go on for ever about this pedal, but then they prob won't post it. I been playing for 9 years and used many flanger pedals and none are as smooth as this one A++ in my book thx Ibanez. One last note there are many famous musicians that use this flanger and half the price as the EVH flanger.
I was more than pleased with this amazing pedal. I HIGHLY recommend it, especially because it's analog and the sound quality is worth every penny spent.
This is a great sounding flanger but it has a lot of hiss noise. It works fine for clean tones but it's very noisy in front of an overdriven amp.It has a chorus-like flange but doesn't do deep swooshing flange as well as others. I recommend the gray MXR over this one but the Ibanez is still a good flanger. It's just too noisy.
I love this pedal. As far as a flange goes its the best to me. i love the delay control. it makes this flange a completely diffrent effect. Without the delay control, I wouldn't see any diffrence between a flange and phaser, but this IS A FLANGER over and over.
I own one of the original early 80's models. 23 years and this flanger is still the beast! Friends who spent WAY more on digital products came back wanting the warm and rich sounds I pull with this. My "sweet spot" is set to play ROCKET RIDE by Ace Frehely. It just kicks better than my RP250. BUY ONE. It will last forever.
I am fortunate to have come across the original issue of this pedal, and all I can say is, "wow." It may be kind of pricey, but it's definitely worth it. The sound is very up and down (which is what I like) and have a solid tone to it. The pedal doesn't color my sound too much either. I highly recommend this flanger to anyone interested in vintage analog modulating effects.
If you are looking for a Flanger you need to know that there are analog and digital flangers...and there is a very distinct sound difference. This is an analog flanger which has a warm smooth warble sound and is very versatile. It's perfect if you want the Andy Summers sound. I highly recommend it. Not many analog flangers on the market anymore.
I just got this thing for free by buying a prestige guitar. This thing sounds very cool and musical. I think I have found a new favorite pedal.
