this flanger still powers up, the switch is working and I assume it still works.... very metallic sounding flanger pedal... I got it for like 10 bucks a bob's rt13 music around the time I got a dod supradistortion. Bought both those DOD pedals because they were cheap and because the other guitarist in my highschool band used thema nd Iw anted to be able to match his tones sometimes. I remember using this a ton for like a year and theng etting a bf2. This guy is different though.
