Ibanez about the reissue

When it comes to compact effects, nine is the magic number. By popular demand (and the understandably escalating prices of the originals), we're reissuing two of the most popular Ibanez 9-Series effects, the FL9 Flanger and CS9 chorus. If you missed out on getting one of these classics the first time around, now is the time.

Flanging is a time delay effect using very short time delays mixed together with the input (dry) signal. This creates a series of peaks and notches throughout the audible spectrum. When the time delay is varied the peaks and notches move or "sweep". The FL9 Flanger features an extremely quiet time delay section creating an unusually noise-free flange. The sweep speed and width may be changed as well as overall time delay. This allows the artist to center the flanging action in a particular part of the sound. Flange intensity may be adjusted with the feedback control. The FL9 Flanger provides quality and flexibility that defies comparison.
