DigiTech: Turbo Flange

Price paid: $ 86.9

Purchased from: Waterloo Music

Sound — 10
My setup is a Traynor YCV40 amp with a DF7 Distortion Factory pedal and a Les Paul Junior with a SD Invader pickup. This rig was meant for distortion and the flanger fits right on in. This thing only makes a very slight swooshing sound when turned on but not playing on the guitar, very unoticable though. You could buy a Boss Flanger for near the same price with only 1 mode and this pedal still kicks its ass. You won't find a pedal like this for a better value and price.

Overall Impression — 10
I play punk rock/pop punk/emo, not a whole lot of use for a flanger when covering songs, but I found it can make your favourite songs sounds so much cooler if used in the right places. If some punk stole it I would buy another that same day, no question. The best thing about this pedal is it will out live you, it's built to take a beating.

Reliability & Durability — 10
This thing is solid, throw it off your roof, it's not gonna break, it's made of solid steel with thick durable paint and decals. The rubber on the bottom and pedal portion look like they could stand years of pounding from dirty shoes on stage. I would take it to a gig with no backup no question, as long as I used the AC Adaptor, don't ever trust batteries, they will run out when you can't afford them too.

Ease of Use — 10
I had never tryed a flanger and bought this pedal blind by only reading about it and never actually trying it, stupid idea, but thank god it paid off. What a great sound! With the 7 different modes you couldn't find a sound that you can't recreate with your own setup. Unless your missing a few to many brain cells anybody can use it, set it and stomp your heart out.
