I've been looking to get a flanger, and it's either the Modtone mini flanger or the Ibanez AF2. Obviously I'm leaning more into the AF2, but I just watched a video of it, and the switch broke. Is there anyone else here who experienced this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9NvDrAtWxOE
I can't tell you from experience but I can tell you that probably doesn't happen to all of them and it's an easy fix at any rate.
I had one for a couple of weeks and didn't have any problems. It uses the same 3PDT switches that everyone else uses. One in every couple hundred to a thousand doesn't work for very long but most of them are just fine.
