Flanger Mini Pedal
Add flanging to your pedal board with this Flanger Mini Pedal from Monoprice!
This mini pedal features two effects modes. In Normal mode, it produces a normal sweeping, doppler-like flange effect. In Filter mode it removes the variability, resulting in a ringing, harmonic type effect. The pedal features true bypass, so it won't alter your tone when not actively in use.
The casing is metal for long term durability. It is powered using a 9VDC power adapter with a negative tip/center, such as our 9V Power Supply for Guitar Pedals (PID 611690).

The two things I don't like about this pedal are the odd input and output jack placements which are off kilter from each other. This makes it hard to line up on the pedal board because the tension from the cables seems to "lift" the pedal up. I also don't like the rubber footing on the base of the pedal - The footing is glued on which makes it difficult to remove. More expensive pedals usually come with an additional rubber piece that fits into the other to make the base flat/flush with the ground or all of the rubber is removable. This is so it is easier to get a flat surface to attach a strip of Velcro to, which makes the pedal stick to the board better. If you don't use a pedal board then it is not an issue, but it is something to consider if you do use one. I give this pedal a solid 8/10. If you're looking for a quick fix for flanging or harmonic ring, then consider this.
PROS: Small, Harmonic Ring effect is cool, Cheap, True Bypass
CONS: Input/Output Jack Placement, Rubber Footing, Slight signal drop when pedal is on
PROS: Small size, true bypass, metal construction
CONS: Not a lot of customization, input/output jacks are a bit loose compared to all my other non-monoprice pedals.
If you are looking for David's Live Animal's and Wall era sound you will not be disappointed. I havent played with the more chorus like settings yet, but they are in there I am sure.
I own an 80's Boss flanger, and a RI MXR flanger, and have played many others over the years, EM included, and would recommend this one just as readily as any of those. It is hard to go wrong with this one.
PROS: compact pedal size, fantastic value, feels solid and well built, bright LED.
CONS: none that I have found.
To summarize: just buy it, you not-$36-dollar-spending Leroy!
PROS: Okay, so the first pro 1:: $36 dollars, Jockey Shorts, if I may call you Jockey Shorts. I pay way more than that to take the old lady out to dinner and a movie, even if I take her to the Super Cuca and the free outdoor movie night in the park. I'll get way more fun mileage out of a crappy pedal, even just to fart around with it for a weekend.
2: The Monoprice flanger is a hurricane in a tsunami up the a** of god's a**. It can kill people in the future and the past. In the present, it can only convince them to learn new ways of thinking and being.
3: It is built really well. This is not a joke part of the interview. It is built the like horn of a rhinoceros.
4: It looks a little bit like a bumble bee. Wait. You know what? I hate that about it. It should be black. That's going in the next part.
CONS: It looks a little bit like a bumble bee.
