PLAY AS YOU PAY
No guitarist goes long before experiencing the captivating grip of Eddie Van Halen's supremely singular style and air-slicing high-output tone -- and now with your MXR EVH117 Van Halen flanger pedal, you can tap into EVH's unparalleled flange tone. Adorned with Van Halen's instantly recognizable black-and-white-striped graphics, this monster of a pedal features manual, width, speed, and regeneration controls, a bucket-brigade design to bring you that classic analog sweep and whoosh, and, to top things off, an EVH preset switch to set this baby to Eddie's exact settings for "Unchained." Unleash the beast within your axe with this forceful flange pedal.

Capturing EVH's Sound

The iconic intro to Van Halen's "...And The Cradle Will Rock" features the head-spinning effect of Eddie Van Halen's flanging style. Eddie has long been known for using insanely high levels of gain to fuel his signal, allowing for seamless runs, tapping techniques, and mind-bending whirls and wails unknown to axes prior. Eddie's signature flanging settings are now right at your feet with your MXR EVH117 pedal's EVH switch -- which engages Eddie's exact settings used for "Unchained." Get ready to jump into the whirlwind of tumultuous tones this baddie has to offer.

Shaping Your Signal

Your MXR EVH117 has a neat, easy-to-read control layout to help you hone in on the exact amount of flange effect you want to mix in with your signal. Starting from the left, your manual knob controls the filter/pitch character of the flange effect. Your width control sets your pedal's LFO amplitude -- the amount of modulation that occurs. The speed control determines how quickly modulation occurs, and the regeneration knob lets you feed any amount of "wet" output back into the input.

A Few Flange Settings to Help You Hit the Ground Running...

The sonic possibilities with flange pedals are virtually limitless, and a few popular settings will get you on the road to fusing your own sonic signature...

Chorus: To get a chorus-like sound, set your regeneration all the way down, and then bring your manual down for slower or longer delay times. Keep you width and speed low as well, but not all the way down.

Jet Flying By: For this effect, keep your speed moderate, set your manual at 50%, and bring your regeneration up. Set your width to the sweep range you want, then dial in that sweep region with your manual control to your own liking.

Classic Sweep: Maximize your width and set in a moderate speed. Add as much regeneration as you like.

Automatic Wah Effect: Keep your width low and set a fairly fast speed. Add a little bit of regeneration and manipulate your manual control to tune your auto wah settings to your own taste.

Features:

- Manual, width, speed, and regeneration controls
- Uses two 9-volt batteries or external power supply
- Bucket-brigade design brings you classic analog flange
- EVH switch provides Van Halen's settings for the EVH song "Unchained"
- Durable die-cast chassis design features EVH's classic striped graphics

Product Description

Everyone knows that it was the MXR Flanger that powered Unchained and And the Cradle Will Rock. Now you can grab a piece of that world-class tone with the MXR EVH 117 Flanger. This amazing stompbox features the same bucket-brigade technology that provided the sweeping, whooshing magic of the original. But Dunlop didn't stop there. They've also added the EVH Switch, which instantly calls up Eddie's Unchained sound with the exact same Manual, Speed, Width, and Regeneration settings that he used to get one of the greatest guitar tones of all time. If that's not cool enough, they even painted the EVH Flanger with the rocking striped graphics that started a revolution.

Get the MXR EVH 117 Flanger and hit the ground running.

Features:

- EVH Switch activates preset Manual, Speed, Width, and Regeneration settings for instant Unchained tone
- Original bucket brigade design for classic analog flanging
- Indestructible die-cast housing in EVH-approved striped graphics
Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (42 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "The flanger I wanted AND needed, a keeper."
Sound: I wanted a flanger with classic analog sound, like what I grew up with in the late seventies and eighties. I don't like to collect pedals, just like tone and flexability. This one nails it. It's like having 2 effects in one. yeah, a little pricey ('cause EVH needs his cut for the name), but try one out. Bring humbuckers, works great. It's a keeper. Feature: Easy to use, responsive, distinct and usefull controls. Built like a tank. Looks great. 'Nuff said. Ease of Use: Initial 5 minutes of knob-twisting, and you can get what you want out of it from then on. Quality: built like a tank, looks great, very distinctive and tastefully cool. Value: Loses a little on price, but make friends with AM's at your music store like all us old guys have done for years. They'll help you out if you are cool. Manufacturer Support: Another fine Dunlop product. If you can break this brick, you need to settle down and take your meds. The Wow Factor: Looks awesome. I love good stomps, and this is one. It goes on the floor..twist knobs, toe it and play. Done. Overall: Great flanger. buy it to keep. If it was stolen I would buy another without thinking about it. Then I would get some payback...
Style of Music: Rock, Blues, Metal
