Some effects pedals try to have it all. When you look at pedals like the OD300 from Behringer or the Boss BF-3 Flanger, what you see are decent enough effects pedals stretching to cover a lot of ground. In some cases, this can even lead to pedals with a full-on identity crisis like the Ibanez 850 Fuzz which can’t decide if it’s a Big Muff clone or an overdrive pedal.
You’ll get none of that with Ibanez Flanger Mini.
When Ibanez set out to design this compact yellow box they had only one intention in mind. They wanted a pedal that could give that full flanging sound with no extra bells and whistles attached.
To be fair, this ‘one effect done well’ policy seems to be Ibanez’s general approach to their line of mini pedals and it’s pretty successful overall.
The design philosophy of traditional pedals was that if they were going to take up valuable real estate, they needed to earn it. Mini pedals, on the other hand, don’t need such a range. Instead, they can give you one effect with simple, easy to use controls.
The Flanger Mini only has three knobs on it: depth, regen, and speed. It’s got one input and one output.
Nice and easy!
It should be clear by now that this pedal is not looking to overcomplicate things. What you see is what you get.
But what exactly do you get?
Well, by now, it shouldn’t be much of a surprise when we tell you that the Ibanez Flanger Mini is great at flanging. Whether you’re looking for those long, drawn out pulses, or that faster, more alien-sounding rhythm, this pedal is sure to deliver.
