What is the difference between a flanger and a phaser? And what would be a good one to get?

Basically, phaser oscillates the sound at a higher rate than flanger does.

EDIT: chorus:flanger as flanger:phaser
They do the same thing to different degrees.

IMO
Flange>Phase.

But my opinion means nothing, so don't listen to me.

A flanger can be made to sound somewhat like a phaser but you can't make a phaser sound quite like a flanger.

Which one is a good one to get? Depends on what your going after.

Check out a few websites with soundbites so you know what your looking for. Musicians Friend is a good one.

What are you basing your opinion on?

Phasers and flangers create a series of frequency spikes and bowls in the spectrum.

Flangers have linearly spaced spikes and bowls, whereas phasers are varied over time.

Flangers are more like a jet plane 'whoosh' and a phaser sounds more otherworldly.
