    Moer ninety orange is a phaser robust, small, very flexible and it’s cheap!

    Even this version?
    I hear a whoosh, not sure if that's a flanger or not

    You do hear a woosh. I think its a keyboard, not a guitar with flange.

    Here is a good example of flanger woosh. There is a keyboard sound as well. 3:24

    Thanks.
    Our band doesn't have keyboards - just 2 guitars, bass, drums and vocals. So perhaps that's why the guitarist wants to use guitar effects to get a similar sound.

    I use a lot of effects myself, and play covers as well. I guess the question that I find most relevant to the "this effect vs that effect" discussion would be, "How much do you want your covers to sound like the original?". I use modulation on certain parts of our covers, just to add my own flavor. It may be a phaser, may be a flanger, maybe some tremolo stutter, but whatever it is, it's just not dry.

    Flangers tend to end up in boxes because, you know, they're tacky.

    Not helpful, I know :p

    It's a great name! (And, I admit, part of the reason I didn't want a clone...sad, I know)

    I would get a good chorus pedal, which can do the non-annoying flanger sounds, and then some.

    I've got a good condition Boss CH-1 I'll sell you real cheap if you want it.

    +1 on the Mooer E-lady. I have the MXR EVH and the Micro Flange too. The E-lady has a lush quality to the sweeps that also let it double as a chorus. The MXRs are a little more metallic sounding.

    I did exactly the same. Found a couple of comparison vids to the original and it sounds close enough. I've been pretty happy with it and it was cheap and it's small
