The Boss BF-2 Flanger is a pedal that's designed for electric guitar but suitable for use with any electronic instrument. It's got the standard Boss configuration that you'll find on all of their pedals that are of this size, with 1/4" jacks for input and output. It then has a battery compartment as well as a nine volt power supply jack for powering this up. It isn't going to be rack mountable since it's a stomp box.


Players with all levels of experience should be able to operate the Boss BF-2 Flanger without a problem. It's got four parameters in the form of knobs for resonance, depth, rate, and manual. Each will affect your sound pretty significantly, but a manual isn't really necessary.


The sound quality of the Boss BF-2 Flanger is just about as good as any flanger pedal I've used. It's not as versatile as the Boss BF-3 or some others that I've used, but it has more than just your basic flanging sounds and definitely leaves room for a good amount of possibilities. I've used it mostly with my Fender Jazzmaster and '76 Fender Twin Reverb, but have used it with other gear and it sounds just as good. It's not going to give you an endless variety of flanging sounds, but for basic purposes it does the job for me as I don't tend to use flanging all that often...


While they're no longer making the Boss BF-2 Flanger, it's still one of the cheapest ways to get a high quality flanger pedal. There are plenty of used ones available out there all the time for only about $40 - $50 USD, which isn't bad at all for a flanger pedal of this quality. If you use flanging all the time, it's probably best to spend a little bit more money on something like the Boss BF-3 to give you a bit more flexibility, but for those who just want something to get started with or who might not use flanging all the time, the BF-2 Flanger is perfect!
