Some people think that if you have heard one flanger you have heard them all. This is not the case. EHX Mistress style flanging is a different animal than the MXR variety. The Neo Mistress can do what her big sisters can do-and with no loss of bottom end like the vintage mistress. The Neo delivers everything from metallic filter matrix tones to noisy metallic waves. It will deliver all the swirling lush chorus type tones of Pink Floyd and The Police. However it will not do the Van Halen jet thing and it also will not do the heartbreaking ambient sweep that you hear on albums by The Cure and Bauhaus. If you love Any Summers you will love this pedal. If you love Robert Smith you probably won't and should get the MXR Micro-Flanger instead.
