Quality Product; Mistaken Desire
25.03.2016
The Harley Benton Classic Flanger is an amazing piece of kit, it's very robust and well made - solid metal, great action on the foot switch and firm control knobs, which is important as I do like to get my fingers around a firm knob. The holes are also very tight with good grip.

The effect is exactly as one would expect, it gives that great whooshing jet engine sound in varying degrees: one can set the speed and re-gain fast for a tremolo effect, or kick everything down to 10 o'clock except the speed (at say, 2 o'clock) to get a pseudo chorus sound.

I picked a flanger up specifically so I could get most of the way to a Chorus, Phaser and Flanger in one box - but in reality I was mistaken and that is my fault. This is definitely a great sounding pedal, but if you want a chorus or a phaser sound, at the price of the HB pedals you are better off getting dedicated pedals for them.

The art on the pedal is pretty rubbish design-wise, but the white and black colour scheme is OK and the execution of it is perfect: there are no chips or dents, or masking errors at any point.

I would give this pedal a 'good' rating, because it does what it says on the tin with very little fuss and great quality.

noiseless classic
t-j-b, 13.02.2014
I couldn't find out which pedal this flanger is trying to simulate but it sounds gooooood. Even though it is a relabled very cheap pedal (Joyo) "it has some realy good tones in it" as the famous guitar players (endorsers) would say.
Subtle on clean tones and not as flexible as other flangers but compared to classic flangers like the MXR 117 it is noiseless!
One lesson I learned in the last years is that cheap doesn't mean bad sounding.

This pedal is rock solid. The footswitch is actualy a true-bypass switch and not just a small and easy to destroy button soldered to the pcb like they use in Boss style pedals. Solid construction and a good sound - what do you need more?

If you want an easy to use subtle flanger get this one. If you want more flexibility (more extreme settings) get the "old" HB FL100 which is also a relabled cheap flanger. If you want even more flexibility and spend a little bit more money (but stay in the low price region) get the Mooer ElecLady which is a very good "copy" of a EHX Mistress.

+ solid
+ cheap
+ good sound
+ noiseless
- the art on the enclosure.... :-)

PS: There is no information about the trim pots inside the box and I did not tinker around with them... maybe I should.

Just great!
Jessie JJ , 08.01.2018
For a flanger in this price range it is just great!
had been looking for a nice flanger for quite some time. Since I didnt want to spend a whole lot on it this was definately a solid choice.

It features just the controlls you would expect of a flanger. Regeneration, rate, with and delay! Great to fool around with

It can take you from subtle lushness to full on takeoff in the twist of a knob. The versatility really impressed me! This unit has been on my pedalboard for quite some time now. Still not taking it off of there.

Perfect and versatile!
Ulrik I., 07.10.2013
The Classic Flanger is great value for money. Depending on the settings you choose, it can function not just as a flanger, but also as a chorus and a phaser. Those are very good options.
The pedal is of a sturdy metal construction, which is excellent even for those who are only playing at home. No risk of breaking the thing when stepping on the switch which would probably happen if it was all plastic.
As for the sound...
It's very analog (in a good way; can't say if the circuit has any digital components).
Want a subtle chorus? A rotating speaker? An out of control phaser? An Eddie Van Halen flanger? It's all here, just move the controls around. The Classic Flanger sounds great together with either a fuzz, distortion or overdrive. Or even on its own. Combine it with a phaser and a chorus and you'll get some totally weird and wonderful sounds.

Buy one. Now. Or better, buy two.
