Includes Rate, Depth, Manual and Res knobs.

The Akai Professional Analog Custom Shop Flanger Guitar Effects Pedal is a great example of a classic sound improved. Flanger includes Rate, Depth, Manual and Res knobs in heavy-duty polished stainless-steel housing. True-bypass switching and four adjustable knobs provide precision control.

At first glance Flanger looks a breeze but once explored reveals a perfect storm of sound. The Rate knob sets how often the oscillation effect waveform repeats as well as the resulting pitch and depth of the signal. Depth sets the intensity of the flange effect, ranging from a mellow stir to an intense swirling maelstrom. Manual and Res work in combination to both delay and increase the intensity of the overall effect.

In the right hands, Flanger unlocks a key to the instantly recognizable, cradle-rocking sound of 80's hard rock.

Flanger is powered by the included 9-volt battery or 9v AC adapter (sold separately).

As with previous Akai Professional guitar pedals like the E2 Headrush and SB1 Deep Impact Bass Synth, the Analog Custom Shop line is a collection of pedal effects designed to exacting standards, using the highest quality components. Analog Custom Shop pedals provide rich tone, texture and character to immediately enhance and inspire players of any musical style.

  • Rich 100% analog flanging
  • Depth, resonance, speed and manual controls
  • True Bypass for retaining a pure signal when the effect is disengaged

Comments about Akai Professional Analog Custom Shop Flanger Guitar Effects Pedal:

This is a rebranded Biyang flanger, Which are great clones of various mass produced effects. This one being very close to the circuit of the famous MXR M-117R: a reissue these days. A few differences, but the best being it can run on standard 9volt battery, power supply, or in my case a 1 spot daisy chain. Unlike the MXR which requires a 18volt power supply port, or using the supplied 18volt single power supply which is a inconvinence, unless running a power strip is something you like to lug aroound for you're board. To each and every gig. This is a toss up because the mxr's 18 volt operation does give you more headroom for the pedal itself. But to me it isn't worth it unless its in a studio setting.TONE WISE: I would take this over the mxr in any gigging sense for tonal options,9volt operation, and footprint. I also want to point out for you're needs that the only other flanger anywhere near this price range that has the tonal options that you might want to look at the options of is the TC Electronics VORTEX Flanger, which comes with the toneprint feature, both of these are very good options and the only better thing about the VOTEX is that it has an even smaller footprint. As far as tone of this pedal itself concerns, it will get you any flange tone you would need in a live situation, and gets along great with all my dirt pedals. It is warm and has very good tone and options. So if you need all the tweaking to you're hearts content of bells and whistles, buy the VORTEX if you've got the scratch, but if you just want a pure tone pedal, for the money this one cannot be beat. Hope I could help, and good luck chasing that tone in you're head!
