The make up of the MXR Micro Flanger is about as easy as it gets as it only has the basic parameters you would expect with a flanger. It simply has knobs for rate and regeneration and having only these two knobs seems to be enough to get a good amount of different tones from this pedal. Anyone with any experience with guitar pedals won't have any trouble at all with this pedal and even if you don't have any experience I can't imagine too many people having problems with this pedal. I've never seen the manual for the MXR Micro Flanger so I don't know how helpful it would be.
The MXR Micro Flanger is a great sounding pedal overall and is suitable for all sorts of genres and situations. I use the pedal with a Fender Strat and a '76 Fender Twin Reverb for recording and I'm always pleased with the sounds I'm able to achieve with this combination of gear. The tone heard from the MXR Micro Flanger is really rich and full sounding and it definitely has a warm vintage tone to it. This is just a great sounding flanger pedal no matter whether you are using it for recording or live shows and don't let the ease of use fool you as it is easy to get a vast array of different flanger tones with this pedal.
I've been using the MXR Micro Flanger for about three years and I have found it to be an overall great sounding flanger pedal. It has an extremely warm tone and is pretty versatile despite it only having two separate knobs. These are somewhat hard to find now and the price will vary, but if you are in the market for a nice sounding flanger pedal, the MXR Micro Flanger is the real deal.
Linn Sondek's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" But it is the maximum"
Classic case in MXR: indestructible.
Config very simple: you turn on and play!
Small hand friendly but useless.
I love it! The Flanger is a pure blessing! What class definition in which this kind of effect!
Peculiar with double or single microphone with an electro-acoustic: it is wonderful on arpeggios which gives an extraordinary dimension without walnut notes.
I tested an impressive number of Flanger and none satisfied me like the fact that MXR. He is the only one I can use without asking the traditional questions: would not it too? Or pass notes? What is music?
He won with talent, class and musicality.
Equally at home on arpeggios in rhythm or solo behind a distortion, it is definitely convincing.
I would not hesitate for a second to make the election.

Svink93's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" It flange?"
Two buttons: depth (intensity effect) and speed (velocity). No volume control (no big deal)
Very simple, no complaints.
Note, I had a small problem with the power supply, there was a loose connection. The length is perhaps not quite standard, I do not know. Anyway, the store I exchanged my model and everything works fine on that. (If not, a little aluminum foil is the case a priori - trick given by the seller of the store)
A good flanger, well marked. Depending on the settings you can achieve very different effects, ranging from quiet large chorus flanger.
There is a slight volume boost when the locks, but it is very convenient in the end, it can not disappear from the mix!
I tried some flanger, and then it sounds great, does the job it is asked ... In short, a good effect!

8oris's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A flanger micro-well"
What technology is used? (Analog, digital, tube ...)
Are they edited? Via an editor Mac / PC?
You can change the rate and regen.
What is the connection? (Audio / MIDI)
Classic: an input and an output jack (mono), a standard 9V power jack.
Is this a rack or rack-mount model?
No. Metal box that inspires confidence.
Ultra compact, good size pots are ideal for settings in "live". The pedal has a true bypass. Making power is on the side, which is just broken-up but otherwise is very good.
The general configuration is it simple?
In view of the impressive number of knobs, hard to get any easier.
One dose rate feedback (regen) and rate (rate) and it's good ...
Editing sounds and effects is it easy?
In fact, yes
The manual is clear and sufficient?
Yes. Examples of sounds.
There still difficult to get any easier. Some would say too simple for a fact that has multiple knobs settings on other models. We know what to expect which is not made for tweakers and other geek pedals.
The effects are they effective, responsive and realistic enough?
Yes. We obtain the grain "MXR" that flatters the ear as well known.
Difficult to obtain chorus or flanger swirling tunnels but the settings are quite thin, the flanger is pretty versatile.
For cons, the lack of "fishing" as one can have with models like the BF-3 or DOD FX747. It's true that a real speed control but lacks a little playing with the spleen, it's OK.
Which instruments do you use?
LTD MH400 increase in EMG 80/85.
Which ones you prefer, you hate?
As I am in the flanger rhythm, I tend to get the regen to 1. As for the spleen, I adapted to the tempo of what I play.
A flanger more suitable for coloring to establish a solo rhythm. It's good without being exceptional.
How long have you use it?
What is so special that you like most and least?
- Sounds and sound immediately
- Grain MXR (for those who love)
- Finesse SETTINGS
- Difficult to get the extreme flanger chorus and flanger tunneled
- Grain MXR (for those who do not like)
Have you tried many other models before buying it?
Not bad. Boss BF3 Flanger Digitech Stereo, FX75C Dod, Dod FX747, Boss BF2, BF2 MIJ, Boss BF1, Psychoflanger Danelectro, Danelectro hashbrowns ...
How would you rate the quality / price?
Honest ... Just for € 110 limit because it was really low settings. Especially since the MXR does not spend 10 years designing this pedal. After the build quality is at the appointment.
With experience, you do again this choice? ...
No, in fact I sold it but it's still a foot right for those who want a simple flanger for his colorful sound. In addition, it is very good on a solo but less interesting (obvious?) In rhythm, I use mainly. I am also a manufacturer with such a tempo flanger built (other than the BF3).
Finally, the fact that I use with active pickups can be changed quite a difference.
A good flanger, compact, simple-sounding but offers little possibility of setting although they are quite thin and precise. Try again.

duguy182's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
The spleen: that adjusts the speed of the effect
The regen: that adjusts the intensity of the effect.
She has a true bypass when not fed since the sound goes anyway and is not altered when the pedal is not engaged.
We could have had a small switch on the model as van halen good but this pedal interest also lies in its simplicity.
Operation is simple, the manual also clear that small and the pedal still has a certain range of sound.
To emphasize that it is supplied with 9 volt unlike the version with 4 knobs that practice when you do not want to use 2 9V output to feed a flanger knowing that my beautiful MXR EQ also works in 18V and I Chow enough room like that.
A very good alternative after all.
Like his colleague, the phaser 90, there is little effect even with the knobs to 0.
Apart from that, the sound quality is top and we are entitled to a flanger typed modern as we like. I had previously used the simulation MXR flanger on my line mm4; bin frankly for those who do not desire that you should know that the flanger effect is much better on the micro flanger and besides there is no lower volume effect as in line6.
Excellent really nothing wrong, micro flanger is successful at all levels and filled his role perfectly at that.
The perfect setting to me is to put the spleen at 2 / 3 with regen-half and it sounds as lead in crunch (it's not best suited for clean sounds but it is doing everything very well good) is really great.
Only regret but now we can do anything about it: price.
I would buy with your eyes closed.

lustror's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good little MXR flanger"
1 button "spleen"
1 button "regen"
y '2-button, no need of a design
even at the minimum there is already a slight flanger
the 2 buttons are very effective and can vary the effect
the spleen controls speed of the effect
regen the intensity of the effect
good analog sound, no volume loss when it engages
Max has pushed his sound that you get a MXR called 'black old sound, 90's grunge'avec sound like lots of little bubbles everywhere
2 hours, I just got it!
it agrees well with other pedals, mxr, gender and fuzz pedals of other brands of course, provided not to abuse the adjustments.
what I like most:
It's well on
It true bypass
