Mr. Black Tunnelworm The ever-inventive Mr. Black actually has a pair of throughzero flangers in its lineup: The Shepard’s End “barber pole” infinite flanger, and the classic tapeflanging Tunnelworm. They are both extraordinary stompboxes, and do sweet tape tones with ease. A guitarist with a taste for tape flange could go with either one and be totally delighted and inspired, but I suppose if I was going to choose one it might be the Tunnelworm. Why? Well, in addition to the through-zero tones, the Tunnelworm is equally adept at classic, solid- state-style flanger sounds, Hendrix or SRV style rotating speaker tones, and warm, liquid chorus, among other things. If you need one flanger to rule them all, the Mr. Black Tunnelworm would be a spectacular choice.  “...the Tunnelworm is equally adept at classic, solidstate-style flanger sounds, Hendrix or SRV style rotating speaker tones, and warm, liquid chorus...” ToneReport.com 13
