Boss BF-3

Effects Unit

The BOSS BF3 Flanger is the successor to the popular BF2 and so therefore has all the characteristics of its predecessor with a little something extra. All the official flanging sounds can be adjusted by the Depth, Width, Resonance (almost a kind of feedback control) and manual (by the change of the delay time the effect is changed) controls, making it really versatile. From subtle, chorus-like settings to the famous "jet-jet" sound, a variety of flanging sounds are possible.

The new modes (ultra and gate / pan) produce stereo sounds of impressive spatiality. Independent inputs for guitar and bass make the BF3 just as interesting for bass players, with an additional foot switch the speed of the effect can also be controlled in tap tempo mode. The BF3 is characterised by a very good signal-to-noise ratio.

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
