The Ross R60 Flanger is a vintage guitar pedal, that is usable with any electric instrument that you'd want to use it with. I've only used it with electric guitar, so I'll be focusing on this application of the pedal. This is an analog pedal, consisting of 1/4" connections for your input and output. This isn't rackable as it is a foot pedal.
The make up of the Ross R60 Flanger is fairly easy to follow, although it did take me a little bit of time to get used to the parameters since they aren't exactly traditional for a flanger. It's got four knobs for manual, auto/manual, rate, and recycle. It's hard to describe what each of these parameters do without actually listening to them, but more or less they do what you'd expect for a flanger pedal. A manual might be a good idea for a new user, but I haven't seen it so I can't comment on it's configuration.
The overall sound quality of the Ross R60 Flanger is really quite good in terms of the different flanging effects that you can get. I've used the pedal with a Fender Stratocaster and a 1976 Fender Twin Reverb amplifier for a recording session. We were only using this pedal, with no other effects in the mix. I do however, notice that we were losing a good amount of signal with the pedal in the chain. This wasn't too big of a deal for recording as we could just turn it up when we needed to, but it's never good when a pedal kills your signal. I could definitely see this being a problem for live shows more than in the studio.
The Ross R60 Flanger definitely has a 'classic' sort of sound, consisting of a good amount of a warmth and fullness to the sound. While perhaps not the cleanest sounding flanger out there, the vibe of the pedal more than makes up for it. The only real downside to the pedal is that you'll lose some signal when you're using it, but besides this it's a great pedal. I'd recommend checking it out if you can get your hands on one, but there are plenty of other flanger pedals out there if you can't. I wouldn't stress on getting this one, but it's definitely a good overall option if you're looking for a vibey flanger pedal for guitar.
