I was shoping for a Flange Effects Pedal and I was looking at the MXR mini and a digtech, nuthing that thats expensive not over $80 so I was watching demos of there sounds on youtube and this guy had a Danelectro D-6 Fab flanger and I liked the sound, and there only like $15. So are thay any good or am I beter off get the other ones?

They are passable, I don't really know what makes a good flanger, but it seemed alright to me when i tried it. They are very flimsy, I have broke a couple of them through casual playing, and their switches are pretty much awful.
I'm just a kickin' and a gougin' in the mud and the blood and the beer.

I don't have any experience with the Fab Flanger, but I do have a Fab Echo which isn't bad. The sound is ok, but it feels pretty breakable since it's all plastic. As long as you don't stand on it with metal cleats it should be ok.

Keep an eye out for a used Boss HF-2. It's a really excellent sounding and very versatile flanger. I picked mine up for just $70.

I have the Flanger, bought it for £10 a few months back. It sounds surprisingly good for a cheap pedal IMO, does it's job and has plenty of variation in sound with the knobs.
As already said, the case isn't the best so just be a touch careful when using it.

I use a fab flange to get a early megadeth flanger type sound it does that pretty well. Id also look at the joyo flaner its a decent mxr flanger clone and worth a look as well.

I'd honestly fap to anything with a set of genitals as long as I find it aesthetically appealing.

+1 to the Joyo suggestion. I'm happy with mine.

I have both the OD and the delay pedals. The OD is okay, the delay is actually pretty good. You can get some cool stuff going with it.
Everything I say can be fully substantiated by my own opinion

I see Joyo has already been suggested. Mooer may be worth a look (esp. if that sale is still on!)

They're plastic. I wouldn't gig with one, but soundwise they're ok.
