What Jim Dunlop say....
Another great old favourite MXR pedal back to reclaim its crown. You can often see guitarists get all misty-eyed as they recall the great tones they got from their old MXR Flanger. Well, dry your eyes, mate, because – it’s back!
The MXR Flanger is the master of creating wild sounds, from a dynamic ‘jet plane passing by’ type of wheeeeoooooosh, to cool space effects, to short delay, chorus and vibrato.
Back off the Width control to zero to disengage auto-sweep, then use the manual rotary to physically place the effect anywhere along the frequency spectrum.
A legendary slice of musical history, no question, and don’t forget you can use this brilliant pedal with guitar, bass, keyboards and vocals. Let your imagination run riot!
How to use the MXR Flanger:
To set up the M-117, first plug it in using the
power adapter that came with it. (The
operate on battery power!) Then plug your instrument into the Input jack and your
amplifier into the Output jack. Turn on the effect with the footswitch toggle, making sure the
to indicate that the effect is active.
Set all the control knobs at the 12:00 o’clock position (straight up). This is a good starting
point to check out what the unit will do. After that, most users will simply want to play with
different knob settings to see how they affect the sound. However, we recommend that you
read the following technical overview. If you do, you can come to understand the function
of each control.
combines phase shifting with a variable, oscillating time delay. The four knobs
atop the unit control different parameters affecting the tone:
This knob controls the degree of phase shifting. When the Width knob is turned
all the way down (counterclockwise), the variable time delay is shut off, and the Manual knob
simply selects how far out of phase to put the signal. As the Width knob is turned up, the
Manual knob also selects the frequency center of the time delay effect.
This knob controls the intensity of the time delay. When it’s turned all the way
down, no time delay is present. As it’s turned up, a sweeping time delay is introduced to the
phase shift (for example, 5ms – 50ms), at the sweeping speed selected by the Speed knob. At
lower settings, the time delay sweeps through a narrower range. At higher settings, the time
delay sweeps through a wider range.
This knob controls the speed of the time delay cycling, or sweeping. When the
Width knob is turned all the way down, the Speed knob has no effect, as there is no time delay
present to cycle. When the Width knob is turned up, the Speed knob changes the time delay
cycling from slow (lower settings) to fast (higher settings).
This knob controls the intensity of the overall effect, by feeding the effect back
onto itself for even greater phase shifting and time delay. At lower settings, the regeneration
effect is subtler. At higher settings, the regeneration effect becomes more intense and
