Hello Effects Fans!

Today we introduce The Prince flanger, which compares to the Boss BF-2 Flanger. Prince was one of the great musicians and entertainers of all times. He composed his own music, played all the instruments on some of his albums, wrote songs for and sponsored numerous other bands, won Oscar and Grammy awards, and even took on the big labels in the music industry. And, yes, so enraged Tipper Gore that albums now have to carry ratings reflecting someone's opinion of their content. He was also an accomplished guitarist, although that often went unnoticed among all his other talents. He was particular about his sound, and to the surprise of many, was able to achieve his funky, rock vibe with a collection of inexpensive Boss pedals. There's often a lot going on in his music, but the Boss BF-2 Flanger seemed to be one of his go-to pedals.

Prince wasn't the only player to use the BF-2. Many guitarists in the 80's used it, including Robert Smith of The Cure, David Byrne of The Talking Heads, Johnny Marr of The Smiths, and Billy Duffy of The Cult, as well as many other well-known players such as Ernie Isley, Jeff Beck, and Rory Gallagher.

The Boss BF-2 Flanger, was probably the most popular flanger upon its debut in 1980 and still remains popular to do this day. In spite of several cosmetic changes, the circuit stayed almost exactly the same from 1980 to 2001, when it was replaced by the BF-3. It was so popular that you probably know its sound, even if you don’t realize it, particularly if you listen to music from the 80’s. Not everyone thought it was the best flanger available, though. To some it could sound a bit harsh or metallic. The Prince has options you can select to change up the tone a bit, including reducing the harshness, reducing the noise, and increasing the “swoosh” by chopping the delay time in half. Like Prince, we like the original BF-2, but prefer the GT version with its available mods.

(PSSSTTT... Hey, Buddy! Yeah, you. Come over here. I wanna tell ya something. I heard GT has another great flanger in the works. Some might think it is approved by the American Dental Association, but it’s not... Just sayin’. Now be cool, and don’t go blabbin’ about it...)
