When switched to 8-stage phasing, the guitar pedal produces aggressive and deep phasing characteristics.

A More Detailed Review

By 

from Birmingham, AL

Noise: The pedal is not as noisy as other phasers. Only on high feedback settings will you hear the typical swishing. Also, the bypass is buffered, but the buffer is very good -- one of the best I've heard, and I'm a true-bypass snob. Circuitry: Per my contact with Ibanez, the phase-shifting effect is generated by an OTA. Yet it works well with my Strats equipped with vintage-style single coils, not too bright or harsh. At extreme settings, the peaks produce some light distortion, but I prefer that because it sounds more vintage. Controls: Past 50 percent up, the Speed control creates an interesting little beat (in time with the LFO, but it's clearly the irregular sine wave being contorted, not clock noise); personally, I think this makes the faster speeds more interesting, kind of like a rotary speaker spinning. The Depth determines how far the phase is shifted from the center frequency, not the mix level, like in many other phasers; this is useful for taming extreme settings. The Feedback control sounds like the usual resonance on the negative side, while the positive side yields vibrato in lower settings and boosted, intense phasing in higher settings. All three of the Stage settings are very much like what you'd expect a 4-, 6-, or 8-stage phaser to be. Quality: Other than the knobs feeling a little flimsy, the pedal has no issues. It powers up well, remains relatively quiet through a clean amp, and clicks on and off with no noise.

Useful beginner

By 

from Brookings, SD

My friend has a used model of this pedal he sold to me. It's a useful beginner pedal, but its breadth is limited. If you are looking just to start adding a phaser to your board, go ahead, but the more experienced players may want to look into something more high end. 4 stars.
