A name linked to quality amps, Supro has been releasing several classic stompboxes since the mid-’10s with the simple yet challenging goal of raising the bar of high-quality compact effects. The Supro Flanger is an all-analog, full-stereo modulation employing four MN3009 Bucket Brigade chips to deliver a rich effect with plenty of headroom.
The controls are familiar but not entirely “classic” with a Width knob setting not only the intensity of the effect but also its stereo “opening.” The Sweep control sets the delay time of the flanger, allowing for tonal variation. Feedback and Speed do what you expect them to do, while a Dimension toggle switch “cross-feeds the two channels into one another, creating the entrancing double-flanger effect of two delay lines being modulated in opposite directions.”
Take a listen to the Supro Flanger in the videos below.
HI-FI, MODERN FLANGER TONE
Sibling to the Supro Chorus, the Supro Flanger is an all-analog, full-stereo modulation effects pedal that uses a quartet of genuine MN3009 Bucket Brigade IC chips to deliver the absolute richest Flanger effect possible while maintaining exceptional headroom. In addition to Speed and Width knobs, the Supro Flanger features a bi-directional Feedback control and a Sweep control that increases the delay time on one side of the stereo field while shortening the delay time on the other side. Featured for the first time in a flanger pedal, the Dimension switch crossfeeds the two channels into one another, creating the entrancing double-flanger effect of two delay lines being modulated in opposite directions, even when used in mono. Runs on standard 9VDC.
Width: Sets the overall intensity of the flanger effect.
Speed: Sets the rate of modulation of the flanger effect.
Sweep: Sets the delay time of the flanger effect. Turning the Sweep knob clockwise will increase the delay time on channel 1 while decreasing the delay time on channel 2.
Feedback: Sets the amount of resonance in the circuit. There is no resonance when the knob is set to the center position. Turning the control clockwise from the center increases the amount of positive feedback. Turning the control counter-clockwise from the center increases the amount of negative feedback.
Dimension: Enables a crossfeed between the two channels, creating a unique, double-flanger effect in mono or stereo.
HI-FI DOUBLE DOWN
Say farewell to wispy, weak flangers. Supro Flanger offers rich, analog tone that strikes the tonal balance between vintage flanger units and more modern modulation effects, paired with a never-before-offered Dimension switch that yields a striking double-flanger effect.
