Canadian pedal maker Retro-Sonic has unveiled its new flanger pedal, which the company touts as providing the “distinctive liquidy character and chorusy flanging” of Electro-Harmonix’s classic Seventies-era 18v Electric Mistress pedal.

The Flanger features controls for Rate, Range, Level and Color, as well as a Filter switch that turns the LFO sweep on and off. There’s also true bypass switching and an on/off LED to check effect status.

Like the Electric Mistress, the new pedal boasts an analog BBD path and runs at 18v.

The Flanger is available for $199.
