Classic Flanger with a Touch of Van Halen!

The MXR EVH 117 Flanger was born from another partnership between Dunlop and rock legend Eddie Van Halen, putting a new spin on classic tone! Delivering the sound that defined such Van Halen tunes as "Unchained," and "And the Cradle Will Rock," you can bring that signature tone into your setup, now with even more sonic options than the original! Boasting the same sweeping, whooshing magic you'd expect from MXR's classic flanger, the EVH 117 Flanger includes a special "EVH" switch, instantly calling up Eddie's sound on "Unchained," with the exact same Manual, Speed, Width, and Regeneration settings he used. Adorned with the signature stripes from Eddie's instantly recognizable Frankenstein guitar, you get epic tone from the MXR EVH 117 Flanger!

MXR EVH 117 Flanger Features:
  • Manual, Width, Speed, and Regeneration Knobs
  • EVH Switch activates exact settings Eddie used on "Unchained"
  • Original bucket brigade design for classic analog flanging
  • Die-cast housing with EVH-approved striped "Frankenstein" graphics
The MXR EVH 117 Flanger delivers classic Van Halen tone!

If you want the EVH sound for flange this is about as close as you are going to get. I am a huge EVH fan and once I plugged this up I had a smile from ear to ear. No doubt the best Flanger on the market for getting the "brown sound". If you are looking for the "brown sound" I highly recommend the EVH Distortion and EVH Phaser. I realize it can be quite expensive but much cheaper then getting the EVH Guitar and 5150 head. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!! Enjoy fellow rockers!!

Magic Button

THE SOUND with a much of the button. Amazing

Sounds great.

Does what is expected and quality like everything MXR makes. Definitely worth the price. Suggest an 18v adapter, however.


I've owned many different types of pedals over the course of 50 years of playing guitar. This model is much better than all the others I've ever used for this particular effect.. It does exactly what it is supposed to do without introducing unwanted noise from other sources However, I have not used it with an AC adapter yet. It is very strong, but subtle. Other Flanger pedals produced sounds that seemed to be far too overdriven and had less separation between the intended effect of each control knob. This gave the impression of "fading" This is especially true when using "MULTIPLE effects pedals" and amplifiers with onboard effects. The metal case and controls are rock solid high quality; the best I've seen yet. Go MXR ! You can follow recommended instructions by setting the first three controls to between 11:00 and 11;30 with the fourth one all the way up; or if you just press the little white button it will automatically take you where you want to be with the sounds from songs like "Unchained" and "Ain't Talkin' About Love". Worth every penny !!!!
