    Flange of the swirling jet, or hovering effect (coupled to a delay, excellent), we do not get tired.

    OVERALL OPINION

    6 years that I use (time flies), not always in my pedalboard but always near, I was immediately captivated and I always find a thousand ways to exploit, coupled with other effect .
    In addition we find cheap secondhand easily.
    Honestly if you are looking for a flanger, go for this one you will not regret it.

    Boss BF-2 FlangerPublished on 12/12/11 at 00:13
    The Boss BF-2 is a flanger effect stomp box. It has 1/4 inputs and outputs and is not a rackable unit. I believe it is an analog pedal, but I'm not 100% sure about this. It is a cool looking color and is much more versatile than its predecessor, the BF-2.


    UTILIZATION

    The configuration of the BF-2 is very easy to figure out. It has four knobs and one of the knobs has another knob on top of it. The first knob controls the resonator, the next controls the depth, the third controls the rate and the last knob is used to set what mode of flanger you would like to use. It is designed to get a wide variety of flanger sounds and it does just that. I've never used the manual as the pedal is......

It is designed to get a wide variety of flanger sounds and it does just that. I've never used the manual as the pedal is pretty easy to figure out.


    SOUND QUALITY

    The sound quality of this flanger is very realistic sounding. It is easy to use it subtly and to hint with the flanger, and easy to go nuts to get some real spacey sounds. I have only used the BF-2 with guitar - a Gibson SG and a '76 Fender Twin Reverb amp. The flange sound on this pedal is top notch and totally professional sounding.


    OVERALL OPINION

    I first used the BF-2 about three or four years ago. I also have a BF-3, which is the Boss flanger made before this pedal and while the BF-3 is a lot more expensive it is definitely more versatile and overall has a better sound to it. While some sounds between the BF-2 and the BF-3 are comparable, the BF-3 has a more varied arsenal of sounds than the BF-2. While the BF-3 is a bit pricey you are getting a very well made pedal from a company with a great reputation. Overall this is great sounding flanger pedal with a ton of versatility.

    I use a HF-2 when I want to "flanger" on the totality of the spectrum. Also with the distortion or drive for the rendering of the legendary "dcollage of Concord."
    The combination with the HF-2 + distortion (Big Muff Russian for example) gives a large avalanche that can make everyone understand that the show is over.
    Excellent quality

    OVERALL OPINION

    I bought 40 euros, about 1 year ago. No regrets. I had tried other like Ibanez but by elimination, I took the one that suited me best.
    The - is the lack of volume
    The + is the diversity about the results obtained following the rglage.
    To beginners, this type of effect does not turned me too but since it sticks in my set with her little sister HF-2.
    With saturations as marriage is perfect. PDAL versatile sound quality, compatibility with other effects .... what more??

    There are four effects available: rate, depht, res and manual
    I guess that's a fact and it has an analog input jack and an output jack that's all

    UTILIZATION

    The configuration could not be easier

    SOUND QUALITY

    In my case my bf-3 and despite the many options in addition to the standard and ultra flanger bf-3's in my opinion can not rise to the bf-2, which generates an audible vibration much more clear sound and feel a little less cold than the BF-3.
    I use almost all the time with the flanger delay dd-6 and sometimes without an amp even better to hear the typical oscillation, it makes one feel intense and almost hypnotic (some good end ...) I use drop6 an electric guitar but......

    I think this pedal is a good pedal, I've never really tested other like the tc electronics ... so I'm happy

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use this pedal for 4 years since I found it in the attic of my father, it dates from the 80's, I like above all the almost electric oscillation of this pedal, I prefer it that bf -3 for this reason.
    The value for money is unbeatable, seriously.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Despite its price, to be clever I wanted to buy the MXR flanger (the REFERENCE of the flanges so it seems) ben APRS test, there's no diffrence audible for me so I kept my pedals fushia!
    I do not know the BOSS BF3 BF2 but I paratdj well accomplished. As for the flanges of multi-effects: yeah, blah, it is standard trs, is made head of programming (bad faith, me?)
    Mef, it does not support a food or non-compliant dfaillante otherwise be able to provide breath or!

    OVERALL OPINION

    The PDAL is pleasurable because it is very easy hack.
    Before addressing srieusement above, I used to just turning on the Fucksters pif, a vague plan and its liquid and could not imagine one second the sound possibilities that can be drawn (which con j ' swear ...)
    The only default that I found it weak loupiote red, I do not know if it's a problem but hey .. rcurrent even if one day the j'arrte guitar, I keep it (!)

    A classic flanger (80's), a value sre, neither cold nor hot, used by many artists (including me even one Robert Smith, Adam Jones, Stephen Carpenter, etc.).

  • Decent Analog Flanger

    Boss BF-2 FlangerPublished on 07/27/11 at 11:44
    The BOSS BF-2 Flanger was made for over twenty years, twenty-one to be exact. It was sold from 1980 to 2001, when it was replaced by the BOSS BF-3 Flanger. It should be noted that the BF-2 is analog, NOT digital. The BF-3 on the other hand, is in fact a digital Flanger.

    The controls are nothing out of the ordinary, and are as follows: Manual, Depth, Rate, Res (Resonance).
    The BF-2 is are powered by a 9 Volt battery, or either a 12 Volt ACA adapter, or a 9 Volt PSA adapter. Which version you have determines the voltage you need. Some of the older, Made In Japan BOSS pedals were powered by an un-regulated 12 Volt power supply, and the pedal had a resistor and diode inside to both drop the......

    The BF-2 is are powered by a 9 Volt battery, or either a 12 Volt ACA adapter, or a 9 Volt PSA adapter. Which version you have determines the voltage you need. Some of the older, Made In Japan BOSS pedals were powered by an un-regulated 12 Volt power supply, and the pedal had a resistor and diode inside to both drop the voltage down to 9 Volts and to smooth it out. Converting those to run off of of a standard 9 Volt adapter is very simple if desired.

    UTILIZATION

    Tweaking this Flanger to your tastes isn't hard. It's a pretty standard control set, and as with all BOSS stuff, they make things pretty obvious. I can't comment on how well the manual lays things out, because since I got it used I didn't receive a manual, but you don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure it out.

    SOUND QUALITY

    My main genre is Thrash metal with some drop-tuned stuff thrown in. I mainly use this pedal to add some depth to cleans, and occasionally I'll use it for leads as well. This Flanger sounds pretty decent, especially considering I got it for $30. It does seem to add a slight volume boost when engaged, which can be annoying, but it's not terrible.

    It can also tend to boost the low end too much sometimes, which works out fine for leads, but for cleans it just muddies things up a bit if you aren't careful. It might be fine though if you had a more treble-oriented amp, or if you are like me and have a 4x12 cab that can handle the extra bass without getting muddy.

    You can also do the standard airplane-taking-off Flanger sounds with this thing, so if that's something you are looking for this can do it. It's also possible to get some pretty chorus-like sounds out of it as well, which is pretty cool. In general, it's a good sounding pedal. Is it the best Flanger out there? Most likely not. But it's not bad either, and if you can get it cheap it's a good pedal to check out.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Overall, this is a pretty decent little Flanger. As said, I got it for $30, and I definitely think it was worth it. I like that I can do more than just crazy sounds, but I dislike that it has a slight volume boost. Having used it for several months now I would DEFINITELY buy it again, even if I had to pay twice the price for it. It's one of the staples of my pedalboard, and I just don't see it going away anytime soon.

    Get it if you are looking for a Flanger that can do anything from chorus-like sounds to airplanes taking off. Don't get it if you don't want to have to deal with a slight volume and bass boost.
