yeah you can get it as a pedal. It sounds like a jet engine flying overhead if you have distortion turned on anyway.

Edit your posts, don't double post it's annoying. And yes you can get it in a pedal, you can get clips of them on youtube.

It depends on what sound you're going for, they both have applications.

EDIT: What he^ said.

Kinda makes a plane sound. It goes up and down if you can comprehend that. Listen to a flanger demo, or Van Halen songs. The effect you hear is most likly Flanger.

Dude, I am not a pedal guy at all. I only have two pedals, one a delay and the other a flanger. Those are the only two a guitar player needs. You can overdrive a good amp for good crunch, then really mess with that sound with the delay and flanger. You'd be surprised what amazing sounds you can get from so little.

And yeah, the flanger is heard a lot in Eddie Van Halen's sound. The very beginning of "And The Cradle Will Rock" is a perfect example of it in use.

thanks dudes
