The Flanger effect dates as far back as the 1940’s, when sound technicians manged to record one signal on two tape machines in sync. While playing back the material, the technician would put his finger on the flange (rim) of one of the tape reels, causing the same signal to be played back at different speeds - The Flanger effect was born!
The Black Sheep Analog Flanger is a compact, true bypass, sturdy built pedal that faithfully recreates this tape effect by splitting the signal in two and letting you manipulate the amount of Flanger with the three controls, Rate, Range and Color. It also offers two modes, Normal and Filter, letting you choose between a lush full thick Flanger effect or a cool retro filtered Flange, with the flick of a switch.
If you have been looking for that real woosh, jet engine Flanger tone, you have found it.
This Flanger has that wooshing deep jet engine type of wash from top to bottom and delivers it in spades!
It is totally silent in the pedal chain and when activated, it does not subtract any low end or body from the tone, it just adds that classic flanger tone.
Analog Flanger delivers a big and impressive sound at an affordable price.
