Dunlop MXR EVH117 Eddie Van Halen Flanger Pedal
When the world at large first heard Van Halen songs like Unchained, you could hear a pin dropwell, you would be able to, if your eardrums weren’t rattling from an unprecedented guitar sound courtesy of Eddie Van Halen. MXR’s EVH117 captures the flange sounds that Van Halen conjured up with the original MXR Flanger, giving players the ability to instantly dial in that Unchained sound. Simply hit the EVH Switch, and you’re ready to go.
If you’re more interested in creating your own tone, this pedal still gives you what you need to make it happen. Manual, width, speed, and regeneration knobs give you free range to choose your sound, whether you’re looking for a sort-of warped tremolo, strange and twisted tones, or the typical jet stream effect synonymous with flange. This thing is built to sound just like the original vintage pedal it’s modeled after, and it has a cool stylized look too; the striped graphics on the face of this pedal instantly bring to mind the era from which all things Van Halen came. You’ll be sweeping and whooshing like the legend himself in no time.
