    Default Trouble w/ EVH Flanger

    Any of you have trouble with your EVH MXR flanger? I just bought one (used, unfortunately) and it's just NOT right. The EVH setting seems to have no set sweep, and just sounds really random and f'd up. What could be the problem?

    It's fucked is your problem.

    I've had mine for 3-4 months and use it in the EVH mode and it has a very definant sweep. Take it back if you can.

    Are you still running xtc's bro?

    Yeah, it's fucked. I'm trying to return it to the seller (it's from Ebay).

    Yep, Ecstasys. My current rig is the Bogner with a chandler echo in the loop, into a Bogner Uberkab. Then, I take a line out of the head, feed it to a Lexicon MPX1 for slight pitch shift and verb and then that goes to a HH V800 poweramp which powers a second 4x12. Kinda a W/D rig. I also have a tuner, budda wah, sd-1, mxr phase and OC-2 octave on my pedalboard before the amp.

    I bought a 92 Recto awhile back. I remember you're a Mesa guy. It's #634 or something like that. I used it on the album, but not really much after that. And, of course, I still have my old Marshalls. . which ROCK.

    Talk to you later,

    cool! You're going to love it. It's very versitile. The boosted Blue channel is awesome.

    Let me know when you get it. And, I'll answer any questions I can.

    FYI, I think I might have discovered what was causing the Flanger problem. It's a 18v pedal, and I was powering it with a regular 9v supply. I'm going to try it tonight with a couple of 9v batteries in it. Should be fine.

    Thanks man. One question, can I jumper the fx loop and use it's master as an overall amp master?

    I dodn't even think to mention the 18v factor...I'll bet that's it cause I did the same thing with older mxr and it sounded funky till I figured it out, good luck.

    Yes. And, actually I'm not sure if you have to jumper the loop to do that.

    I know the global master is on the back. And, I also know that if you do jump the loop, you can use it as a boost (set the loop volume higher).

    There are sooooooo many variables and ways of running the amp. I've been gigging with it for about 5 years now and I STILL discover new ways.
