i love the mxr flanger, and was somewhat interested in the stereo electric mistress(stereo, not deluxe!) . i love that slow and deep jet sound with distortion and that's mostly all i would use it for but sometimes other stuff.

i use a G&L ASAT special semi-hollow (great guitar, recomend it!), a fulltone ocd, mxr phase 90, boss dd-20, and soon an ibanez weeping demon wah, peavey classic 30 (mostly distorted but sometimes clean)

evh uses an mxr. it just has a different sound than the mistress. the misstress doesnt have the same tone that i'm looking for.
Boss BF-3 is a really nice Flanger
Fender 09 Standard Strat>Wilson Ten Spot II Wah>Boss DS-2 Turbo Distortion>EHX Big Muff Pi>Boss CE-2 Chorus>Crate V32 Palomino 212
Fender Deluxe Active Jazz Bass>(Same Pedals)>AcousticB20

I'm with DeltaFunk
anyone tried a stereo electric mistress? can they do a good jet sound with distortion?

and what about the mxr's clean tone? can you get metallic and bell kind of sounds with it
i love my Stereo Electric Mistress...
it can do the EVH "Unchained" sound easily...

the best thing about it is the stereo outputs...
flanger heaven...

what about the "aint talking bout love" sound?

Yeah, that's a phase 90
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not
Either the EHX Electric Mistress or the Flanger Hoax. Guyatone also make a really good, stripped down flanger.

That being said, I prefer phaser, so in that case, i'm going to have to +1 on the Phase 90 idea.

The fact that I went TOO high singing a Darkness song on Singstar

You are correct.... He uses the MXR 117 Flanger on that tune. The sound on the intro lick, is a Flanger.
i just got a boss bf-2 flanger from used for 50 bucks from a friend, really good for the price

if you have the money, and especially if you want to nail evh's flange tone, than i would go with the flanger

the problem is that flanger is a hard think to use a ton, as it can be overused easily

so my suggestion would be to go on ebay and get a boss bf-2 flanger, you can find them for around 50 bucks used as well

oh and the bf-3 is iffy, has more features, but didn't sound nearly as good as the bf-2 did to me

hope that helps

right Metallica is a given. Personally I like to pretend the bus exploded and killed them all in '86.
