Description & Specs

This item is in excellent working condition and barely used.
The Flanger-X is a flanger pedal, designed to provide anything from a slight chorus through to a huge sweeping modulation - with the Igor pressure-sensitive controller able to adjust the modulation speed.

It’s digital, but features an analogue sound reproduction of a space rocket launch, as it burns through the atmosphere heading to space! This is envelope-controlled, or on all the time, or just in specific bursts whenever you press Igor.
  • FLANGE; this controls the amount of the flanging effect.
  • RATE; this controls the speed of modulation, going from stationary through to very fast.
  • ROCKET; this knob adjusts the amount of rocket noise, going from none to very loud
  • VOL; this adjusts the instrument volume.
  • FBK; turn this to increase the amount of twangy fast echo repeats.
  • ON/OFF footswitch; this engages or disengages the Flanger-X (true bypass).
  • IGOR Pushbutton Switch; this changes the function of Igor from modulation speed increasing, to adding a burst of rocket noise.
  • ENV Pushbutton Switch; this changes the rocket noise from following the envelope of the instrument signal, to being constantly on.

About the rocket noise:
This is internally generated, and is carefully shaped to have all the 3-D detail of the actual thing, muffled cracks and pops over a huge low roar. At full ‘rocket’ setting, part of the sound is from overloading the input of the digital flanger circuit, creating the final texture of the intense distortion. This means that the ‘PEAK’ LED will probably come on at this point (which is fine and does no harm).

When ‘rocket’ is turned down, the circuit stops being overloaded and the rocket seems to move into the distance... The envelope-controlled rocket noise actually has most of its low-end filtered away, to keep out of the way of the main tone of the notes you’re playing. The constantly-on rocket is full-frequency.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days.
