Is this bosses old hf2 flanger verstaile enough for some lead solo flanger? I mean with distortion. I use a laney tube with a boss metalzone.
My key tone is kirk hametts soloing/lead tone

I know Hammett used the eddie van halen signature flanger on my apocalypse solo. Is that in your budget?

New/Used?
Budget?
Location?

You'd probably be better off using a tube screamer than the metalzone with that laney to get a kirk hammet sound.

I am getting a used hf2 for 40 US of 2000 indians.
Emm i require a high gain distortion one, coz laney is a medium gain non metal amp.

I had one for quite a few years. It seemed very versatile to me, though I haven't exactly tried a lot of different flangers. I was able to get all sorts of cool sounds out of it. One that I liked with distortion was very metallic-sounding; literally like a sawmill buzzsaw with that metallic "ringing" and all. Not for the faint of heart, though. As for how it will effect your lead sounds though, I'm not sure I can help you there.

It's a great pedal, but I stepped away from having so many "effects" quite awhile ago. I now focus on TONE with only very subtle effects added here and there. Flangers are not typically known for their subtlety...
