Flanger and Delay Recommendations
« on: November 15, 2010, 01:03:48 PM »
Ok, we all know that Robert is the king of low expense, but great sounding gear.  So here's a challenge.

Can you find me a low budget, but decent quality Flanger or Delay?

For what you get, it's very cheap! :) Because you get tons of other effects too.

For super cheap, check Behringer UF300 EFX and Danelectro Fab Slap Echo.

Line 6 definitelty has great tones ( I have a pocket pod), but I'm just not a fan of multi effects pedals.  My pod is for slient practice only.

At those prices, I'd rather buy some botique stompboxes.  I've found I'll spend way too much time tweaking the multieffects.  Plus I've also notices they also need to be adjusted when playing a different venues.  It makes it difficult to find good tone on the fly.  I've used three different Digitech models, Boss, Line 6, and Vox.  I'm not going back to those.

The Nova stuff is probably great. I haven't tried any of it myself, but the talk of the town is that it's really good.

I like my new Jet City amp, so I'm hoping that their new pedal lineup is good to.  I'm also big on looking for used pedals, and I found a couple boss flangers for $40.  But I need to try one first.

I have a new Deltalab's DD1 delay.  Pretty sweet for what I use it for.  Still looking for a sweet flanger.  I wonder if Line 6 makes one since their POD sounds so good.

DB (and others interested),

some time back i bought a book called 'Guitar Effects Pedals-the Practical Handbook' by Dave Hunter. It came with a cd...of 'effects pedals'. every 'new' pedal is not covered, but a lot of classics are. has saved me a wad of money, and more frustration from the standpoint 'i can hear a sound i like or dislike, without buying a pedal to find out'.

Can't go far wrong with a Boss DD-3, good pedal. I used to have a Boss Flanger years ago, can't say I remember it being a bad pedal.

Lately, I've been playing a lot of classic 80's rock tunes.  I've noticed that on almost every band or song I want to learn, the flanger is a must have effect to get the tone right.  When I did some research on the guitarist and their gear of the era, the Flanger was one of the most common effects used both for clean and lead/distorted tones.
