Vintage flanging at a budget price

David9268, 24.11.2014
The Neo Mistress promises vintage flanging tones in a pedalboard friendly footprint. The housing is the ubiquitous (and durable) MXR style metal casing, and features true bypass switching, red LED light and simple two knob - rate and feedback- controls. Power is from a 9V battery or a BOSS type adaptor. The depth of the effect is controlled by the Feedback knob, whilst Rate controls the sweep, also neatly doubling up as a filter matrix. The flanging effect ranges from mild, through watery to true Doctor Who/Sci-Fi style oscillation. With a bit of experimentation and clean or mildly overdriven tones it's possible to dial in a convincing Animals/The Wall era Dave Gilmour or Andy Summers, whilst cranking up the distortion brings you into the ballpark of the jet-engine sounds of Eddie Van Halen. If you're into the retro stylings of bands like Purson or Jex Thoth, the Neo would certainly get you on your way to nailing that early 1970's vibe.

There's a little bit more background hiss from the Neo than you'd get from a modern digital or boutique pedal, but you don't buy this kind of vintage pedal if you're after surgically precise modern sounds. Properly dialled into a mix or in a live setting any background noise is unnoticeable anyway.

The two control setup obviously doesn't have the scope of the Neo's bigger siblings the Electric Mistress Deluxe or Stereo Deluxe, but it's still remarkably versatile pedal and for anyone on a budget or with limited space on their pedalboard, the Neo is an excellent choice. I like it a lot.

Excellent choice for a moderately priced flanger

Marcin Ga?czy?ski, 28.04.2018
I was amazed by the sound of this pedal in demos and I can only admit it's perfect after using it for some time for fun and in recordings. The range for rate and feedback control is very usable and the flanged sounds are great both clean and thru overdrive and distortion.
