  • Maybe the best

    As reviewed by Alex Deferrari on 10/16/2008

    Pro: it's just like the original. Con: It's JUST like the original. This is the best phaser I've ever tried, and I like it more and more everyday. It has the sweetest tone; warm and classic phasing sound, a reminder of what we've heard on those '70s vinyl LPs. Even though is not TBP, it doens't add any color to your tone. It's built like a tank, it'll last a long time. Only a "Speed" knob, just like the original. There's a but: it only works with a 9V battery (I assume that in 1974 there was no 9V power supply) and there's no LED to show you that the effect is on. The latter is not a problem, the former is. My pedal tech added a 9V jack and it works just fine. But I wouldn't go to a gig using batteries on any of my pedals, no way. Keep that in mind. That's why I don't give it 5 stars.

  • Smooth and rich, amazing phase sound

    As reviewed by Bro Bro on 7/26/2010

    I love this pedal. It's a great pedal, the best Phaser I've ever heard. I'm very picky about sound, and I own a few Keeley mods and have 13 pedals. This pedal is a highlight. It nails Pink Floyd and Van Halen exactly. Sweet, detailed. About the indicator light, if you can't tell that this pedal is on, then you might be tone deaf. It's pretty obvious. I do wish that they would put an indicator light on it and a dc out on the side.

    The Phase 90 is an incredible pedal. In my band I use it in a few songs and it really adds depth and a bit of complexity. Everything about this pedal is just the way it should be, except since it is an exact replica of the original, you run into some problems. 1. NO LED This vintage Phase 90 does not have an LED light that tells you if it's on or off. Sometimes it's hard to tell if it's on or off, and that can be a pain during shows. 2. NO POWER ADAPTER If you have this in a pedal board, this is a nightmare. It will die after a while an if it's dead, then your signal won't get through the board. 3. COMBINATION OF THE TWO PROBLEMS You don't know if it's on because there's no LED. Since it's battery powered, you could click the switch without knowing it and turn it on. It will stay on until it dies. Then you put it in your board thinking it still works. You go to play your guitar but it doesn't make any sound because your Phase 90 is dead and it is stopping your sound from getting through. You can't attach it to your board and get power from it, because there's no power input. Now you have to go change the batteries for the 56th time in two weeks. 4. PRICE It costs a good amount more than the other Phase 90 that sounds exactly the same and has both the LED and the power input. In conclusion, get the MXR M-101 Phase 90 Pedal instead.
