a chorus "isn't enough" and a phaser is "too much." i'm a flanger guy. i've been using the same Boss BF-2 for a decade and a half now (it was the 2nd pedal i ever bought), and i feel the urge to upgrade it. considering the rest of my board is filled with boutique stuff, i thought the time might be right. plus, mainly it seems the only thing i can really shape with it is the rate, otherwise the rest of the knobs kind of seem useless. it comes and goes on my board from time to time, but now i have the need for it again, and it just isn't matching the tone in my head. true bypass, flexibility, and some analog circuitry is what i'm looking for. i don't care about "the best" one, or the cheapest, just point me in the right direction to start checking some out. i play strats into fender amps. lots of fuzz. lots of delays. a little overdrive. thanks.
