That Pedal Show – Six Awesome Flangers Compared

Published on Nov 25, 2016

In this episode Daniel and Mick run through six different flangers. Dan absolutely loves them, Mick’s relatively in the dark as usual… before being entirely surprised that they do all sound quite different!
We talk about how they work, where they sit on your board and of course have a good ol’ play through all of them. Let’s flange, baby…
