If you are a fan of Eddie Van Halen and are in need of a solid flanger pedal than this one is for you. In my opinion the best flangers out in the market are made by MXR. This just has that so recognizable EVH graphics on it similar to the guitar in hand on the front cover of Van Halen's first album. This is a wicked pedal and you can get so many different tones from it. I usually keep this pedal in a standard form for "Aint' Talking Bout Love" which I will go into in a little bit. The coolest thing about this pedal which makes it different than the regular MXR flanger in the EVH mini button. This button calls up the tone for the song "Unchained" which is my favorite Van Halen song. So you don't have to scramble around if you have the pedal set one way you then don't have to move 4 controls around to get this tone or even find it.

MXR EVH-117 Eddie Van Halen Flanger Features:

* Manual, Speed, Width, and Regeneration controls
* EVH Switch activates preset Manual, Speed, Width, and Regeneration settings for instant "Unchained" tone
* Original bucket-brigade circuit
* Die-cast housing
* EVH striped graphics


I'm a huge Van Halen fan so this is a great pedal for me. I like the graphic and the mini button even though I know basically how to get the unchained tone. It makes it quicker if I want to change to that tone. The four buttons really control a huge range of frequencies so you have to play around with it to get what you like. Since all knobs control the parameters in a huge range there are so many variations of that classic MXR flangers tone captured in one box.


The sound quality is superb. Very lush sounding flanger a smooth jet like quality to it. I like to use this coupled with an MXR EVH Phase 90, a Marshall plexi reissues, a Marshall 4x12 with G12H30 Celestion Speakers and a nice super Strat. Followed with a variac and your ready to go. Or you could just buy a Splawn Quickrod and have the EVH tone in spades.

My favorite setting is Manual 11:00, Width 2:00, Speed 11:00, and Regen at 1:00. This setting will get you the Aint Talkin Bout Love tone. This is a good general setting that works for most applications as well. Well if you don't want to push the EVH button or you have a regular MXR flanger and you want to get that Unchained tone here is my setting.

Manual 11:00, Width 2:00, Speed 11:00, Regen -Maxed out. The Regen plays a huge roll in this pedal in my opinion. I think this is the most critical knob that has the most overall change to the tone.


This is a fantastic flanger pedal that will make anyone sing Panama. If you are a fan of the EVH or just need a solid flanger than this is a great pedal for you. I would recommend this to anyone who needs solid flanger pedal that can get lush jet like swishes. The price comes in new at around $190 which is still a nice price for a great pedal.
