There’s also a quote from him from the early 90s on the subject of flanger versus chorus, which is a bit confusing. Depending on how you read the sentence below, he either used flanger regularly and a chorus sparingly, or he used flanger sparingly, and chorus not at all.
I’ve got a Boss flanger, as opposed to a chorus, which I use sparingly, I use that only in “Shadow Play” and “Moon Child,” and one other song.Guitar for the practicing musician, August 1991 issue.
However, “Shadow Play” and “Moon Child” both sound more like a flanger and based on other quotes, it seems that he was indeed talking about a BF-2.
