The Boss BF1 is a flanger pedal designed for use with electric guitar, but will work with just about any type of electronic instrument. The pedal is an analog one and is one that has 1/4 inch connections. This isn’t a rack mountable piece of gear as it is a foot pedal.
Using the Boss BF1 is quite simple and even those without any prior experience with pedals like this one I wouldn’t expect that they would have much trouble figuring it out. The pedal simple has parameters for manual, depth, rate, and resonance all in the form of knobs. That is pretty much all there is to the pedal, so as you can see it is quite simple in make up. Beyond this there isn’t much to the configuration of the pedal and for this reason I don’t think that manual is necessary.
The sound quality of the Boss BF1 is incredible. It is one of the best flanger pedals that I have heard and is just as good as a lot of outboard flangers that I have used as well. Since it is a vintage pedal, it definitely has a vintage sound to it, meaning that it is warm and has an analog type of tone. It has a rich sound that is round overall, and is versatile as playing with the parameters will give you a variety of different tones. I usually use the pedal for recording with a Fender Strat and either a ’76 Fender Twin Reverb or a ’65 Fender Deluxe Reverb. ~Audio Fanzine
