Bel Recreates an Analogue Classic with New BF-20-500 Stereo Flanger

Wimberley, TX (January 19th, 2017) – New for the 2017 Winter NAMM Show, Bel Heritage Designs is proud to announce the BF-20-500 Stereo Flanger, a 500-Series version of their classic analogue effects unit.

Designed by Bel founder and ex-Genesis guitarist Mick Barnard, and first released in the late 1970s, the original rackmount BF-20 quickly became the “flanger of choice” for many of the world’s top recording artists (Phil Collins, The Rolling Stones, YES) and prestigious recording studios (AIR Studios, RSK, Townhouse Studios, Metropolis, Miloco). 

This sought-after analogue effects unit has been meticulously recreated and made available for the 500-Series format. It is based fully on the original design, including use of the well-renowned SAD512 bucket brigade devices.

The BF-20-500 will be available in March 2017 through select resellers worldwide, with a retail price of $1195 USD.
