Through Zero Flanger:  Through Zero Flanging is created when a flanger pedal splits the incoming signal into two.  The original signal is untouched, the second signal is delayed a bit and then sped up to meet the original signal again.  The unique sound the two signals create is called Through Zero Flanging.  This sound was first created by analog tape flangers.  Digital through-zero flangers are gaining popularity.  Through Zero Flangers are sometimes denoted as TZF.
