    I've tried a handful of flangers. I'm looking for a great stereo flanging sound. I'd like a very liquidy sound, but nothing that completely saturates your tone. I know it's rare, but I'd like to have stereo IN and out if at all possible. Here are the flangers I've had:

    Maxon FL-9 (Great, but mono in/out, and a little too subtle for me)
    Boss BF-2 (Not bad, but mono in/out and a little noisy)
    Boss BF-3 (Terrible)
    Line 6 MM4 (Pretty good, but there's a volume drop when engaged, and I only want a single effect)
    Line 6 Liquaflange (Pretty good, but this is the one that saturates my tone)

    What are your favorites?

    DOD fx-747 is very natural sounding, not mettalic like the boss and covers a wide range of sounds

    For the best sound, low noise and the best construction....FOXROX!

    But it's a little hard to dial in good tones...
    And for live-shows it's hard to dial in the tones you want in a few seconds.
    But it is the best sounding stereo (mono in) flanger.

    I'm not aware of any stereo in flangers. As has been stated, the Foxrox TZF is without question the mac daddy of flangers-so many possible sounds you'll never use them all up. For stereo in, you'll have to go digital I believe. Either that or get a pair of decent stereo output flangers and one of those little 4 input, 2 output mixers and make your own stereo mix...

    It's not a pedal, and only available used, but it is a good one to say the least.

    My preference has to be the EH Deluxe Electric Mistress, although I found it to have a lot of background noise and a large footprint to keep permanently on my board. My current favourite is the Ibanez FL-9 (after a little tweaking of the internal pots).

    I have an old DOD FX75C Stereo Flanger that sounds great. And can be have for a good price in most cases.
