This was my first choice for an FX pedal, and i lucked out. It sounds great, i can get any sound out of it, it is durable and was at a fairly reasonable price. If you are just starting to build your pedalboard, i strongly recomend this one. if you can, though, buy a second one, so you can have them at two different settings.
Price: $70.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Musicians Friend
Features:
It has rate (speed of effect), depth (range of effect), delay time (duration of effect) and regeneration (flanger only, mixes dry and wet signals). it also has a switch to change from chorus and flanger mode, and a switch for normal or "wack'd" sounds. wack'd is basically normal on steroids, it goes really fast and sounds like something out of korn. it has an ac adapter thing (not included) or a 9v battery. i don't really like how they have the battery case, though, it is right under the actual footswitch and if you kick it wrong it will pop open. but usually it is allright, you can just duct tape it or not kick it too hard. it has 2 outs for stereo operation, which i really like, i play it through two electar tube 10's and it sounds great.
Sound Quality:
I play with a Kramer strat (Gibson -> Epiphone -> Kramer), a DOD Grunge distortion and a seanet tuner into two kramer 10 watt tube amps, with the gain cranked all the way up. this sounds great, i try to use it as much as i can. obviously, the chorus could just be always on and it would sound fine with anything; the flanger isnt going to sound good on a pop song, it is pretty much rock/electronic/pop only. it is almost completely noisless, there is some faint noise when i crank the gain, but a lot less than one should expect.
Ease of Use:
Well, you step on it. that's not too hard. but seriously, it is pretty easy to get some good sounds, i really like the regenerate knob, because you can have the flange very quiet in the background or you can have it as the lead riff. also, you push the knobs into the body and they stay there until you push em again, so you don't accidently turn them during a gig, which is a great feature.
Durability:
I have kicked the crud out of this thing, and it keeps on flanging. the case is metal, with non-slip rubber on the bottom. it is very solid, it feels and looks well built. there are some plastic parts, like the knobs and switches, that i guess could be broken off if you tried hard enough, but so far it has proved to be indestructable.

I love this pedal. It's the most versatile single effect pedal (well double in a way) I've ever seen. I'd buy another in a flash if it was gone.

Where Obtained: Musician's Friend
Features:
Has controls for Speed, Depth, Delay Time, and Regeneration. Also a switch to toggle chorus/flanger and a "Krazy" switch for Normal (classic flanger) and Wack'd modes. It can be battery powered (with a convenient quick way to get to the battery- a 9v) or with an AC adaptor. It has one input, and two outputs, which is really handy and adds greatly to the chorus effect. The thing is also indestructable! I couldn't break it if I tried! Also, the "set and forget" allows you to push the settings in so they don't get moved. You get complete control, and that's how most guitar players like it.
Sound Quality:
There's no noise, except a slight whooshing if you don't mute your strings enough. I play hardcore stuff and this is perfect. It works for lots of styles (chorus is universal most of the time, but flange doens't work too good with most styles).
Ease of Use:
VERY easy, of course with a little fiddling you can do better, but if you want you can crank everything and mess with the speed :). The Wack'd mode is a little hard to get a good sound with though.
Durability:
This thing is TOUGH. It feels like some kind of die-cast metal.
