Overview

Dunlop and Edward Van Halen have collaborated to bring back the classic tone of the MXR Flanger that powered timeless Van Halen tunes like "Unchained" and "And the Cradle Will Rock." The result of their effort is the MXR EVH 117 Flanger, a stompbox with the same bucket-brigade technology that provided the sweeping, whooshing magic of the original. This updated model comes with the EVH Switch, which instantly calls up Eddie's "Unchained" sound with the exact settings used to get the original guitar tone. On top of that, it comes painted with the cool striped graphics Eddie used to customize his guitars.

Features
  • Manual, Speed, Width, and Regeneration controls
  • EVH Switch activates preset Manual, Speed, Width, and Regeneration settings for instant "Unchained" tone
  • Original bucket-brigade circuit
  • Die-cast housing

I have been searching for the perfect flanger for a long time. My main beef with most flangers is the maintainting of a strong resonance of the flange while palm-muting. Digitech, Line-6, and even the Boss couldnt cut it. I went to guitar center to return my Boss BF-3 and the clerk recommended me the standard MXR flanger. It was perfect, excatly what i was looking for. Then i saw this bad baby and decided to choose it over the standard MXR. The great thing about this pedal, besides its overall sound is the EVH "Unchained" tone switch. If you like how it sounds, voila! you have two flange settings in one pedal. I have the tweakable settings for a stronger flange then in mid-show, i can switch to unchained instantly for a warmer, more subtle flange. And on top of everything, it's built like a tank and downright sexy! Expensive, but worth every penny!

I bought this unit expecting to use it for Van Halen covers. I suppose it would work for that, but to me it didn't sound as advertised. It is also very noisy. I had and original MXR flanger "back in the day", and I do not remember it being as noist as this one. I sent mine back.

Flexibility!

By Terry Murphy

from Jersey City, NJ

The reason I love this pedal is because of the flexibility it offers. Yes, I'm an EVH fan, but more importantly, you get a great MXR flanger with all the great tonal properties that go along with it. But with the touch of a button, you also get a great setting that's not just great for "Unchained", but is just a flat out great flange setting, but also versatile enough for plenty of other uses. So your flanger is ready to go with two separate settings available at the push of a button.

Prompt and Pleased

By John Achenbach

from Studio City, Ca

I received my pedal quickly and in perfect condition. The flange sounds amazing. I love being able to just click the "Unchained" button on a whim and crank out that killer riff without having to dial it in. Great pedal!

Great Product Once You Find a Use For It

By Triz

from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

I own this pedal and haven't used it in a year or so. But when I did use it, it was a great pedal. It has great tone and the EVH button perfectly replicates the flanger tone in "Unchained." The only negative thing about this pedal is the fact that I never found a use for it. It also didn't include a power adaptor, so if you buy this remember to get a 18 volt adaptor or just use TWO 9 volt batteries.

Awesome Flanger

By Nieper

from Centralia, Illinois

This pedal was amazing! I love the EVH button. It gives a great Van Halen sound and I also use it for playing things like Nirvana and some Iron Maiden.

Unchained !!!!!

By Aaron

from Sioux Falls, SD

MXR has once done it again with the EVH Flanger. This is a very well built, high quality stomp box. The paint job is flashy and it is solid as a german tank. Like all MXR pedals, it is built to withstand years of brutal butt kicking abuse. This is basically, in a loose sense, 2 flangers in one. The classic MXR flanger and a special EVH switch that goes directly to Eddie's signature flanger settings. This unit delivers on all of its promises and the tone is like no other. You can maually set a wide range of tones or instantly have the classic VH sound. This unit sounds best through an all tube amp -100 watts or more. I wouldn't use it through a solid state, as it may sound "cheaper" or muddy. The only cons is that the EVH Flanger are that is takes a special 18 volt adapter, not your usual 9 volt one. It is also a bit pricey, but overall worth every penny as it is the best Flanger made, period.

This is a dream come true for me. I have waited for a EVH style flanger for a LONG time. Sounds exactly like if Eddie was playing at a concert!
