saw these in guitarist magazine. there reissues of 80's mini versions of mxr full size flanger and chorus units, plus a phase 45.
though guitarist magazine list them at being 139+ each.

Hot Rox have them at 69 each, get them while you can.

out of the three, i'd go for the flanger. not as out there as some of the flangers. more subtle and musical

I have the original version of the chorus, from either 70's or 80's. Its lovely, glad they have reissued it.

I like the sound of the original micro flanger, so if the reissue sounds pretty spot on then I may have to get one. I definitely agree that the micro flanger is very subtle and really musical and lush.
