I have used many flangers over the years and the Boss BF-3 Flanger is in the top of the class. Whether you want a touch of coloring or oceans of swirl, this pedal will do it all. The BF-3 features a pink metal casing, the same easy click-less switching and red led check light that all boss pedals are known for. It has four main adjustment knobs, of which, the mode knob has the most variety of options. "Standard" mode covers all the basic amounts of flange for most applications. For those who like their flange extra thick, there is "Ultra" mode which gives more of an edge than the standard provides. "Gate/Pan" mode gives a slicer effect that is like a tremolo with a light swirl, and "Momentary" gives you the option of keeping the pedal active only when the pedal is depressed, in a non-latching fashion, for those quick touches. As with most flangers the rate knob controls the speed of the swirl, and the depth knob adjusts the amount of thickness in the effect in contrast to the instrument itself. The last knob is a 2 stage control. The inner knob controls the resonance, and the outter knob controls manual. These 2 work together to adjust which range is affected by the flanging. At complete polar opposites, at one end it will give a lower swirl, and when reversed, it gives a a higher metallic flange. If you depress the pedal and hold it for a minimum of 2 seconds you can set the tempo so your effect speed is in sync with your music. When this is accesed you simply set it by tapping a few beats on the pedal in time with your song and it syncs up instantly. The BF-3 also has duel outputs so it can be operated in mono or stereo for maximum effect. The only feature missing on this pedal is a volume control knob, but with the thickness control you can pretty much compensate for its abscence. Overall the Boss BF-3 Flanger is everything most of the great flangers are and then some. It allows for complete control over any type of flanging effect you could ever desire. With a descent price and pro features the BF-3 proves to be yet another classic from Boss.

I've owned this pedal for about 3 years and it gets thrown around all the time and it still sounds great. My bass player using it too and it sounds just as good on with bass. I dont use it as much as i use to, but i always know it will work when i break it out. Lots of different tone options compared to the Diaz version of this.

My second favorite pedal

By 

from Houston, TX

Comments about Boss BF-3 Flanger:

I?m pretty experimental in my attempt to pull sounds I love from every piece of equipment I buy. And this one to date has been at the top of my list. Another review called it fat and meaty. I?d agree. It?s also got a subtle almost not there edge of the ear aspect to it that I love.

All You'd Need in a Flanger

By 

from Newport News, VA

Comments about Boss BF-3 Flanger:

I can't say anything bad about this pedal. I don't use a ton of flange, but when I do, it has everything I need. Has a great, natural sound and a TON of settings/features. More than I need, to be honest. But I like having options. Great pedal.

Flange me to the 70s....and back again!

By 

from New York, NY

Comments about Boss BF-3 Flanger:

As a long time bassist who is an avowed anti-techie, this pedal is perfect: easy to operate, durable, nice range of sounds, compact, and absolutely no hiss or static akin to my first Flanger back when Jimmy Carter was President. I highly recommend this pedal - and all Boss pedals -to enhance your ensemble playing and soloing. Sounds equally stunning on my Music Man Stingray 5-string's low B and trusty mid-70s Fender P. If you dig such bass greats of yore such as Mars Cowling,Marvin Isley,Herbie Flowers, Glenn Hughes, Roger Glover, Geezer Butler, John Paul Jones, John Deacon, and Tom Hamilton to name a few - this pedal excels!

Comments about Boss BF-3 Flanger:

As usual BOSS is the best with all of their products. I own 6 of their pedals and they all work and sound great. Long story short - get BOSS and you will not regret it. They all work for me 100% of the time and then some.............

Very Nice!

By 

from Springfield, MO

Comments about Boss BF-3 Flanger:

A thick and meaty flanger, this thing is not fooling around! So it sounds amazing, but I do notice a pretty big volume boost when I engage it (especially on a distorted tone). I kind of wish it had some kind of "Mix" knob, because when I kick it on sometimes, I'm like "Whoa"!

BF-3

By 

from O'Fallon, IL

Comments about Boss BF-3 Flanger:

Nice flanger, thicker and much deeper flanging than i thought it would have. Again, I am not an expert, I haven't been playing all that long, but before I got it, I heard almost nothing but positive reviews about it. So far, all the songs with flanging that I've been trying to learn to play, this baby gets that sound for me, and it's easy to use, too. Nice tone, I've been playing around with it for awhile now, and so far everything I've expected or needed from a flanger, this BOSS BF-3 gets it right on the mark. Definitely check it out or borrow one if nothing else, I'm really pleased with mine. If I ever make it into a recording studio, this baby is most definitely going to be on my pedalboard.

Greatest Flanger Ever!!!

By 

from Missouri

Comments about Boss BF-3 Flanger:

I bought this Flanger pedal a while ago because I was looking for a different sound for my music that would set me apart from others. And wow was this the pedal to do that with! I was looking for a Flanger pedal and figured to go with Boss because of the great sound and durability of my Overdrive pedal I have from them. I tried out a few other Flanger pedals but this pedal topped them all. It is great, it has many options on the pedal for Regular Flanger, Ultra Flanger for a more deeper odd sound, and then Gate/Pan which fades the guitar in and out. I recently started using this with a SX Jazz Bass and fell in love with what it does for Bass Guitars. If you are looking for a Flanger Pedal, look no further. This pedal has all the Flanger you will ever need hands down!

SIck Pedal

By 

from Islip NY

Comments about Boss BF-3 Flanger:

If you want a thick, controllable flange, this is the pedal you need, especially for bassists. Some amazing sounds will come out of your amp when you plug in this pedal. I personally enjoy setting it at a very slow rate, equipping me for some psychadelic bss playing. I recommend this pedal for guitarists and bassists.

Best Flanger

By 

from Illnois

Comments about Boss BF-3 Flanger:

This is the best pedal I have. It was the first pedal I got. I had it for a year and I love it since. I like the samples in the manual better than the ones I can come up with. Some of the bass samples sound great on the guitar. Sometime I use it with a wah. You can come up with creative ideas after looking at the samples. You can make flanger tremolo and chorus sounds instead of getting the actually pedals. So, if you are looking for a flanger, I recommend the BF-3.
