    I was never a flanger guy, but I play a lot of old outlaw country and the flanger was a staple in Waylons tone. Name a few contendars for the pedalboard. Thanks!

    I've never owned a flanger until 2 months ago.... And it's half flanger and half chorus... It's the Fulltone ChoralFlange. I like it sometimes.... To me its an effect that should be rarely used because it's so powerful. I only use it once a night out of a 35 song set list. It's an effect I'm gonna have to get used to. I leave it mainly on the "leslie" setting.

    I'm pretty sure Waylon used a phaser.

    I've never been big into flangers, but the A/DA is my favorite vintage flanger. But yeah, I wouldn't use ANY flanger for playing country.

    I did more homework and you guys were right! He specifically used a Boss Phase Shifter. I've been playing country fulltime for 10 years and you would have thunk I paid more attention!:eek: :D

    if want a hell of an analog flanger, the Foxrox TZF is as good as it will ever get. It will do anything from classic flange, to some killer leslie (which I use it for a lot), to really spaced out 60's acid rock (House Buring Down). I never really liked flange until I got this pedal.

    The best I've ever owned was a reissue ADA Flanger (the Pat Travers Special) - insane flanging and great Leslie-style tones...

    I used to use a vintage MXR flanger back in the day. The grey one with the hard wired ac cord. It was kinda noisy but the tone was awesome. Perfect for VH and also nailed the Adam Jones guitar tones from Tool's Aenima album. I dailed that sucker in perfectly for those sounds. I eventually got rid of it when my tastes shifted, but I'm sure if I still had it, there would be a place on my board for it. Good luck to ya!

    definitely analog flange, the boss bf2 is a corker, i wouldnt take a digital flange if they were giving them away.

    Similar story, except I *still* have and use mine. Mine's been tweaked for true bypass and lower noise, and it's hard for me to imagine a flanger doing a better job at nailing the tones I want to hear. I may be in the minority, but I really don't care for the TZF-style effect. It sounds pretty cool as a studio effect, but for juicing up the guitar sound I MUCH prefer the straight ahead circuit.

    Another vote for the A/DA.

    Adam Jones used an Ibanez Chorus/Flanger pedal, I believe. I think he still does. I play in a Tool cover band (in which I use the A/DA, though I could potentially retire it from regular use if I find that I like the Maxon or the new Line 6 more) and I think the A/DA does a good job, but is more refined... which is a bad thing when you're covering that raunchy sound, but a good thing in terms of "I want to continue to own this."
