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

Comments about MXR EVH-117 Eddie Van Halen Flanger:

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.

    Comments about MXR EVH-117 Eddie Van Halen Flanger:

    This is a great Flanger, I bought it specifically for a Van Halen cover band and I was not disappointed, even if you don't plan to play just Van Halen songs with it you can get awesome versatile flanger sounds as well, you can even emulate a decent Chorus with this pedal, I use this option to play some Van Halen 2 tones too. With the EVH button you can get the signature flanger sound used for the song "Unchained", pretty cool to avoid loosing some time with the knobs during a gig if you want to change the flanger settings quickly (I use it to change from Ain't talking bout love to Unchained) .
    It has a great responsive switch (you dont have to step too hard on it to turn it on) and the pedal is built like a tank, with an awesome paintjob. The only extra thing you will need is a 18v adapter or if you use batteries it has two 9v battery slots,the power imput is located (conveniently for me, as I like it that way) in the upper side of the pedal, different from other Mrx Pedals that have it located next to the "guitar in" imput. In order to make it fit with a velcro strap on your pedalboard, you will have to remove the 4 bumpers that it has below, you just need to take out the screws, take out the bumpers and then place the screws back, great option if you want to keep it in mint condition if you ever plan to sell it, and you can put the velcro in the battery slots so it will not affect the paintjob . It's an awesome pedal, I bought it some months ago and I have no problems with it so far. I think you won't be dissapointed.

      Great sounding flanger. You can get from chorus type sounds all the way up to over the top flanger if thats what you like.
      The added EVH switch is pretty cool and does get you that Unchained tone. That same tone is also usefull for some other solos too.

      I Love this thing, Great sound and true to form as advertised. Love the "Unchained EVH Button" Sounds GREAT. The best pedal that I have ever bought. It is expensive, but well worth it.

      Uses batteries like there is no tomorrow. Get the 18V AC adapter.

      HONEST REVIEW

      By eruption77

      from Irwin, PA

      About Me Experienced

      Comments about MXR EVH-117 Eddie Van Halen Flanger:

      This is 'that sound.'

      First some quick background: I've played for over 20 years. I've played SEVERAL flanger pedals looking for the VH sound. I've owned SEVERAL Digitech processors (my mistake). Each processor had between 4 and 8 flangers 'built in' to it.

      NOTHING I'VE EVER PLAYED CAN HOLD A CANDLE TO THE EVH FLANGER! Seriously. Nothing has came close to this flanger.

      It's analog and it's great. The beauty of this pedal is, you can dial in your own settings and then simply press the EVH button to acquire the VH flange setting--allowing you to have 'your' setting and Eddie's.

      I have read from several sources that Eddie only used ONE setting on his flanger for all VH songs...and I believe that! While the EVH button works for Unchained, it also works for On Fire, Hear About it Later, Mean Street, The Seventh Seal, or really any VH song that a flanger was used.

      Ironically, the knob settings on the Amazon pic are EXACTLY the settings for the Van Halen flange, but without pressing the EVH button. --Trust me, I played with this for hours to figure out what the settings actually are. To my surprise, after having figured it out, they are on several pics of this pedal!

      Here are the exact VH settings:
      Manual: 10:00
      Width: 10:00-11:00
      Speed: 11:00
      Regen: 5:00 (Max)

      I've had a DOD flanger (yeah, remember those?), I've tried Boss, and the countless Digitech flangers built in to my processors...

      You really need a MXR flanger to replicate that VH flange.

      However, this is a 'fan's only' type pedal. The regular MXR flanger (117 I think) will do this too, but without the VH button. This is a fantastic analog flanger that will allow you to create your own flange while being able to instantly switch to a VH flange with the press of a button.

      I've never used a better flanger than this, and HIGHLY recommend this pedal if you are looking for a great analog and/or VH flanger.

        First one arrived DOA and musicians friend promptly replaced it. I bought this to replace my aging BOSS flanger. The EVH model is true to form, sounds great with clarity and responsiveness - from swirls to jet planes, it can do it all. Love the EVH script switch for playing the VH stuff. A great pedal built to last.

        Comments about MXR EVH-117 Eddie Van Halen Flanger:

        Great pedal overall, couldnt ask for anything better in a flanger!
        The EVH button really "Unchains" the pedal! Very versatile! Can get any desired flange sound out of it!
        Built like a tank, sounds amazing!
        A little pricy, but i got a good deal on eBay, not hard to find! Great pedal for the price though! Worth every penny.

        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

        Comments about MXR EVH-117 Eddie Van Halen Flanger:

        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.
