Summary: This pedal is a great flanger. First thing I noticed is that its loud. Louder than other flangers i've used in the past. The flanger sound is just as good as the MXR's to my ears. I bought this flanger to get the van halen effects that you hear in his earlier records and it does that well. I'm really impressed with the pedal. One thing i noticed though is that there is a delay between when the effect turns on when you step on it.
Summary: I bought it because I always wanted Flanger Flanger's the Boss, I've had several other effects pedals, and the only flanger I had was a Aria Pro, which does not compare with the robustness of the Boss. The BF3 is spectacular!!
Boss BF-3: Great pedal, great design, very very reliable with power supply.

Summary: AH, the Boss BF-3 Flanger! This pedal can do any and all flange effect plus it has a gate/pan mode which is really cool new feature which can literally turn the flanger's sound into somewhat like a Tremolo. With the pedal hooked up in stereo, not only does it sound like a tremolo, it also sounds Stereoscopic and it will pan between speakers. It also features the ability to mimic a chorus pedal as well.
Summary: With anything you buy, if what is important to you is other than the experience, you are either to easy or hard to please. Getting something of value and utility optimizes the experience two-fold. I am encouraged by the experience from sellers recently.
