The TFL-1, economical yet of high quality, affords a variety of flanging effects, from a strong, indiviualistic jet sound to a chorus or vibrato-like sound. With the adoption of a four-control system, the TFL-1 is the most highly perfected effects device in its class. It may, of course, be used with electric guitars but can also be used to full effect with electric basses and keyboards.
