The Carl Martin Axis Flanger is, in a few words, a reissue of the classic Carl Martin modulation pedal in a compact case and with simplified controls, a treatment the Danish builder has reserved to its most popular original stompboxes.
This is a bread-and-butter flanger pedal with controls for Speed, Depth, Feedback and Pre-Delay, which allows you to delay the effect when the note is plucked, so that it doesn’t interfere with the performance’s dynamics. This circuit adds a rather subtle effect compared to other flangers, it doesn’t do “seasick” but always stays in the realm of tasteful modulation..

Carl Martin Axis Flanger, Builder’s Notes
What’s more groovy than a flanger? A new, smaller flanger, loaded with features and painted a bold psychedelic purple….that’s what! Introducing the re-designed Carl Martin Axis Flanger. We simplified the controls to give you all the control you had with our Carl Martin Classic Flanger but reduced the size so you don’t have to worry about leaving the Axis Flanger on your pedalboard ‘cause you don’t have enough room’.
Complete with a buffered Bypass footswitch for on and off control (indicated by an LED), Speed, Depth, Pre-delay and Feedback controls, the Axis Flanger comes in a machined aluminum case finished in psychedelic purple, and those cool Carl Martin graphics. The Axis Flanger must be powered by a regulated 9v Power Supply like the Carl Martin DC Factory, and like all the Carl Martin fx pedals, we use the best parts to make sure you get the best sound! Watch out baby…the flange is back!
