Fantastically Flangeable

The flange sound has been with music throughout the ages - used on everything from vocals to drums, but a guitarist you might have heard of (Edward Van Halen) showed us the only righteous place for flange is guitar! We've combined a classic tape flange with the awesome TonePrint technology, giving you access to everything from through-zero flanges to customized rockstar sounds!

Size Matters

We haven't seen your pedalboard or anything, but our guess is it's pretty full. We're guitarists after all and we live for gear. So, we've built all that is great about the original Vortex Flanger into a mini form factor so there's room for killer flange sounds no matter what your board looks like.

TonePrint - Signature Effects

Vortex Mini Flanger is TonePrint enabled. This means you get the revered TC sound multiplied to infinity with rockstar-customized versions of the best flange sounds known to guitarkind- free of charge!

Infinite Flangeability

If we didn't know any better Vortex Mini Flanger could just as well be a time machine with all the diverse sounds it holds. You want a nice vintage vibed tape flange? It's there! You want a roaring 747 Jet-Flange, or maybe a nice modern hi-fi swirl? Yes, you guessed it, it's there! Due to our proprietary TonePrint technology, the sonic potential of this tiny beast is basically endless. So let your imagination run wild and go create flange awesomeness.

True to Tone

You love tone, so do we, and our design philosophy testifies to that. So whatever route you wanna go, we got your back. With optimized headroom, True Bypass and even Kill-Dry on/off via our TonePrint Editor, this pedal guarantees optimal tonal integrity and zero loss of tone. And, no matter if the pedal is on or off your precious dry sound is always passed through the pedal unharmed in all it's pure analog glory due to an Analog-Dry-Through design.

Backstage Pass - All Access

From Mach- 3 jet sounds to psychedelic tape flanging, this pedal hangs with the best of them, with a ‘must-have’ form factor and killer tones! Oh, it does fantastic 'through zero' sounds too!

Size Matters

Vortex Mini Flanger has an ultra-small footprint – it will fit on any pedal board, even yours!


You guessed it – this determines the speed of the effected signal. Slow speeds will enhance the jet–like qualities of the effect.

Analog Dry-Through

Keeps your tone YOURS. We never convert the dry signal, so you’ll always shine through with zero latency and total tonal transparency.

All Signals Go

Works equally awesome with guitar and line level/FX Loop signals.


Controls the intensity of the effect. For classic jet flange sounds keep the depth control low. But do feel free to crank this thing and do your worst!

Free TonePrint Editor

Create your own custom flanger pedal with the free TonePrint Editor!


The Feedback knob allows you to feed the modulated signal back into the pedal, which basically gives you more of everything that’s so cool about flanging.


Load Vortex Mini Flanger with your favorite artist’s flanger tone.

True Bypass

True Bypass for zero tone coloration.

The Vortex Mini still features all the versatility you'd need for smooth to insane depending on how much you toy with the depth, speed and feedback controls... the little sister mini pedal offers a fantastic inroad to the effect for anyone who just needs a sound they can set and forget, especially when you consider that you can load in TonePrints from Steve Stevens, Orianthi, Bumblefoot and more...

You are getting quality sound with the Minis, and the sound confers a great advantage allowing you to cram more pedals on your board, or run a smaller neater setup.

There's a surprising amount of flexibility available from the three knobs, especially the feedback dial: take it out for Andy Summers-style chorus tones, or turn it up for EVH whoosh. The TonePrint Editor proves extremely useful for tailoring the flanger's sweep, and the zero-through flanging tones offer almost Uni-Vibe-ish sounds.

... the Vortex Mini's Depth, Speed and Feedback controls facilitate a wide range of flanging effects, and the unit supports TC's innovative TonePrint technology.
