Gary Moore’s Boss BF-2 Flanger

One of the pedals that was part of Gary’s pedalboard in the early 1980s. The flanger wasn’t used much at all, according to Gary, maybe once per gig, and it eventually was removed from the chain. Beginning with 1984, Gary got his flange effect from a Roland SDE-3000 rack unit.

I think I use the flanger once all night, and the chorus about twice. If you use them all the time you may as well not have any, it sounds like shit, and also you disguise everything you do — which is probably a good thing in some cases.
