This is MXR's modern version of their most famous pedal, the Phase 90. Featuring a brighter and slightly bolder tone than the vintage reissue, the circuit in this pedal still gives that immediately recognisable thickness and movement to your tone! Set it at 9 o'clock for instant Eddie Van Halen! This is also the sound you'll need for 'Syd's sound': that brilliantly mournful arpeggio in Pink Floyd's 'Shine On You Crazy Diamond'.
As always, there is one control for rate and that's it! This gets you from slow, thick stodge to fast, watery Leslie-cabinet emulating tones. It's pretty much the perfect phaser pedal and this model has the LED to let you know it's on/off status too.
This device has found its way into many of Eddie Van Halen's recordings, adding a shimmery velocity to lead passages or a more dramatic swoosh to muted strumming.
Not just for guitars; it works well with bass, keyboards and even vocals. Vary the speed from a subtle, long cycle to a fast, watery warble...and myriad vintage vibrations in between.
