Everything has already been written.
Pedal incorporating a chorus and a flanger effect.
Entrance, two outputs (for stereo).
9V 200mA power supply required on making the boss very classic format, which agrees perfectly alim of pedalboard.

UTILIZATION

the pedal is true to its brand:
There are finally some settings, but the use of three knobs gives varied or extreme results.
Basically it was like setting:
> First knob that in the first half of the race to adjust the frequency range of zero flanger speed. The second half of the race is used to adjust the speed, so a fixed effect we pass a turning effect.
> A second rule depth flanger
> The third the depth of the chorus

There is no adjustment mix. As against the pedal is true bypass

Like any pedal "big buttons", or we have a good visual memory is there is a beast with his positions knob think. However, it is more forgiving than other approximations.

The case is "bullet proof".

SOUND QUALITY

This is where it gets good!
The grain of the two proposed effects is excellent. Both very credible to attack the front 70's rock, sadly the modern things (chorus to Toto), or uses and frankly extreme metal.
Provided a consistent chaining (in my case, in the effects loop before an analog delay), the grain will always nice, clear as saturated.

The icing on the cake is the ability to have single flanger (chorus depth to zero), one chorus (flanger depth zero), or a combination of both effects. This mix "drop anchor" a clear, but is also very interesting when it comes to finding a particular texture to a crunch or distorted.

Tried with three very different guitars (gibby SG, fender jazzmaster, Schecter with seymour duncan active), the effect respects precisely grain and dynamic instrument, but also the amp.

OVERALL OPINION

used for nearly six months, four taped to my pedalboard, I'm delighted.
also its quality and sound signature, it allows, offering both quality effects, gain a significant place, while calling for a little sonic exploration (yes until then I had no more thought to mix it both effects ...)
In his versions of pedals, electro-harmonix sometimes produces bizarre, but here for once, it is a gem!
