The pedal is very easy to use in that all the knobs are laid out nicely and are clearly labeled. It has an LED indicator to tell you when it's on or off, which is a huge plus if you're on a dark stage and were in a rush to set up your gear. The manual is gives good detail as to what everything does and gives some recommended settings. The most peculiar thing about this is that it has a button that defaults everything to Eddie's favorite setting. Why they chose to add this, I have no clue. It's pretty useless, in my opinion.
Aside from the useless button, this pedal delivers a great flange sound. The pedal excels at that jet plane sound that he made famous in his songs, but it can do much more than that. This pedal can also deliver some very subtle flanging sounds that are almost unbeatable when compared to other pedals on the market. It's fairly transparent, and the sweep on the knobs is great.
If you're in the market for a flanger, take a look at either this or the BF-2. Both of those pedals are cheap enough to where they won't break the bank like certain boutique flangers, but they sound great. Personally, I prefer the BF-2 simply due to space and not having to run the pedal at 18v. Aside from that, they're actually closer than some people may think.
