The name Maxon isn’t entirely familiar to many pedal users today however they’re responsible from the most popular pedal ever.
You see back in the 70’s Ibanez were a brand which would use its name to sell products other companies made, they indeed did not make guitars, pedals, amps … anything really. Ibanez asked Maxon to produce some pedals which Maxon and Ibanez sold at the same time.
One such pedal was the FL-303 which you can also find branded as an Ibanez FL-303 … Exactly the same pedal!
What’s nice about this all analog flanger is how subtle it can be while still being quite obviously a flanging effect.
The overall appearance of the pedal wasn’t carried on through into pedals such as the TS-808 , TS-9 etc which is what helps its curvy slightly oversized appearance to come over as charming.
A fan favourite flanger, this one is a lot of fun!
