Extremely Useful Pedal
R Carvin, 01.06.2021
Great for the classic flanger sound. It's perfect for that heavily modulated 80's effect.
The gate feature also allows it to do a great job at emulating more extreme tremelo sounds, so it can save a lot of space on the board.
May be a little more complicated that its predecessor however.

Review on Boss BF-3
CatherineW, 03.08.2013
I found the Boss BF-3 to be an excellent addition to my pedal collection as it is a two in one pedal, you get a tremolo effect as well as multiple flange effects. The tremolo effect can be used with the flange at the same time or without the flange and on its own. I found this fantastic as you really get your money's worth with it. It is a very sturdy pedal on top of that. I have had no problems with it and I have had it with well over a year now. This boss pedal is to a high standard and creates no hiss. The Ultra flange option gives you a more intense flange sound which i found very useful. For a more subtle sound the standard one fitted my requirements perfectly. The only disadvantage with the pedal is that it can take a long time to find the right flange sound you want as you have to create it yourself. However for me I found that it added to the diversity of the pedal. I would highly recommend this pedal to someone who wants to make their guitar sound more interesting.

Boss BF-3
TP374, 04.08.2013
This flanger can go from subtle to extreme, and offers sonic possibilities for rotary, chorus, gate & vibrato effects also.

Nice features:
- Seamless transition from bypass to effect.
- Bass & Guitar inputs: accepts a wide frequency response, which is useful with synths as well.
- Low noise, it doesn't distort the signal, nor does it self-oscillate (shriek) undesirably with high resonance settings.
- Stereo output: really interesting for stereo and rotary flanging possibilities.
- Tap tempo: always useful.
- Momentary Flange: useful for studio precision.

I would have liked to have a depth setting for the gate/panning (as it is on 100% wet, but then again this is a flanger!)

Overall the sound quality is really good, at higher depth setting more of a chorus (detuned) sound is created - this may or may not be your desired effect

BOSS BF-3 for guitar and bass - one of the better Boss pedals
HenryJay, 28.09.2014
This flanger pedal is an excellent choice for both a guitar and a bass player. Guaranteed quality and clarity for your flanged sound, if you should need that. For me it is included in my standard setup.
