Tonight, I came across the MXR EVH-117 Eddie Van Halen Flanger. Looks like EVH and MXR teamed up to work on a signature flange. This pedal normally lists at $318.24. Musician’s Friend has it available for $189.99 but Amazon has it for a bit less at $169.95. If you’re looking for that Van Halen-esque distortion.. then this would be a must in your line.
Here is the official product description:
Dunlop and Edward Van Halen have collaborated to bring back the classic tone of the MXR Flanger that powered timeless Van Halen tunes like “Unchained” and “And the Cradle Will Rock.” The result of their effort is the MXR EVH 117 Flanger, a stompbox with the same bucket-brigade technology that provided the sweeping, whooshing magic of the original. This updated model comes with the EVH Switch, which instantly calls up Eddie’s “Unchained” sound with the exact settings used to get the original guitar tone. On top of that, it comes painted with the cool striped graphics Eddie used to customize his guitars.
MXR EVH-117 Eddie Van Halen Flanger Features:
- Manual, Speed, Width, and Regeneration controls
- EVH Switch activates preset Manual, Speed, Width, and Regeneration settings for instant “Unchained” tone
- Original bucket-brigade circuit
- Die-cast housing
- EVH striped graphics
I found a video by meckintosh74 which shows what this pedal can do.
