DISCONTINUED.  This pedal has been discontinued and will not be available again.  Thank you to those who have made the FL-9 Flanger an integral part of your rigs. 

  • Analog Flanger based on vintage 80’s FL-9
  • Wide range of classic chorus and flanging effects
  • Panasonic MN3207 Bucket Brigade IC
  • Delay Time and Regeneration controls
  • Companding noise reduction circuit
  • True Bypass Switching

The analog signal path of the Maxon FL-9 Flanger pedal uses the Panasonic MN3207 BBD IC to create some of the richest, thickest flanging and time-delay effects possible. Rate, Depth, and Regeneration controls allow the user to dial in everything for shimmering chorus and vibrato to hollow, metallic overtones to thick, jet-like flanging sweeps. In addition to standard controls the FL-9 features a Delay Time knob that allows for a vast array of all-new spatial effects. Silent operation makes the Maxon FL-9 at home on the stage or in the studio.

"The Maxon FL-9 feels indestructible. The sounds are huge and rich, and the spectrum is broad - from subtle to extreme. And, as someone who loves the sound of jets, this pedal roars beautifully." - Gretchen Menn -

The FL9 circuit architecture is very similar to the CS-9 Pro, with the exception of a faster clock speed for the MN3207 chip, a mono output, and the inclusion of the “Regeneration” (feedback) control, which injects some of the Flanged signal back into the clean (pre-effected) guitar signal before it hits the first Compander chip. This gives the flanger its characteristic “howl” as it makes its way up and down the LFO sweep.

The FL-9 features Mechanical True Bypass switching via a Fujisoku 4PDT switch – input signal is switched to ground when bypassed.
