First off this thing is phenominal. If you are a fan of the David Lee Roth era van halen guitar tone you need this pedal to capture the tone. People say that this is not a very good phase shifter, however they really do not know what a phase 90 does. The pahse 90 adds a trebele boost that makes solo's cut through the mix. Those words were spoken by EVH himself so believe me this pedal is essential. The EVH phase 90 is one of the esiest pedals to use. I mean how hard is it, it has a on/off switch, a speed knob, and a Script switch. The great think about this script switch is it allows you to have the older "script" sound which EVH used, rather then the more modern sounding "block" phasing. If you are a fan of early VH, get this pedal, because if you dont your tone will just always lack that extra "uummmffff" that this pedal will give it.That being said it will not make you sound like ed or capture the brown sound, but it 'll get you one step closer.

This pedal didn't sound too bad at first besides the fact that it is very limited in its capabilities due to the singular knob. While the tone is one of the better I have heard, the script button serves little purpose and turning the knob changes the phase speed but very it is very subtle. Overall I do not recommend this, it was a waste of money, especially for the price. It is extremely over-priced for such low capability and it is because it has Eddie's name on it. That is it. There are better phase pedals out there and this one just decided to break randomly about 2 weeks after purchase and 20 hours of play. Do not buy, for the sake of your wallet.

Love it

By GuitarGuy34

from Rockville, MD

Comments about MXR EVH Eddie Van Halen Phase 90:

I have owned a lot of gear over the years and this pedal is fantastic! It does exactly what it was designed to do. Sometimes simplicity is genius and in this case they did not mess with a good thing. All you need is one knob and you get everything that the original Phase 90 gave you, plus the addition of a more modern sound with the press of a button. If you are looking for a thousand buttons and lights, don't buy it. But Van Halen was never about a thousand buttons and lights . . .

MXR EVH Phase 90

By RARic01

from Buffalo, NY

Comments about MXR EVH Eddie Van Halen Phase 90:

TThe MXR EVH Phase 90 is two Phase Shifters in one! The Script switch enables you to toggle between the classic, subtle vintage Phase 90 sound or a more intense contemporary phasing. With the script switch engaged and the speed dial set to 9 O?clock or lower, you get a very subtle phase setting effect that really fattens up your sound without a pronounced whooshing effect. It really nails Van Halen?s Eruption sound, as well as the solo to ?You Really Got Me?. Disengage the script switch and you get a more pronounced contemporary effect. With the speed knob set at 3 O?clock or higher, you get a shimmery pseudo rotary speaker effect?great for recreating the Leslie effect Jimmy Pages used on the solo to ?Good Times Bad Times?. Overall this unit performs wonderfully, offering versatile phase shifting effects with low noise operation. I feel that it is the best Phase Shifter currently on the market!

The Old and the New

By Reviewer of Things

from CA

Comments about MXR EVH Eddie Van Halen Phase 90:

I own an old vintage Phase 90 and the new EVH version. I can't say that the EVH model sounds perfectly like a vintage unit, because it doesn't...not quite. But I wouldn't give up my EVH Phase 90 for anything, because you can get some sounds out of it that you just can't get out of a vintage unit. Ideally, its best to own both a vintage Phase 90 and the EVH version. If all you can afford is just the EVH unit, you certainly won't regret buying it. Its that good. I have to say, though, that if you are looking for that ultra spacey, psychedelic wavelike sound, you might want to look into buying a Small Stone as well, the EVH Phase 90 does have its limits. But, then again, the Small Stone can't do what the EVH model can do. Also, in my opinion, the EVH Phase 90 is slightly more transparent than the Small Stone. If you can only afford one phase shifter, it should probably be the EVH Phase 90.

Great Pedal, Good Price

By StratBogFullTube

from New York, NY

Comments about MXR EVH Eddie Van Halen Phase 90:

In previous reviews, people have mistaken this pedal as a phase shifter. It is a phaser, not a phase shifter. Not only can you get the Eddie Van Halen sound out of this pedal, but the sound of a regular phase 90 as well. It is a great addition to any rig.

Awesome classic and more!

By Billy

from Appleton Wi

Comments about MXR EVH Eddie Van Halen Phase 90:

Anyone who is under rating this pedal just doesn't have a clue or hasn't really been a live band musician. I used the old classic phase 90 pedal till the paint wore off...and it still works great by the way. But this pedal adds the new twist and tone that you can't seem to quite create with the original. It is identical to my 20 year old pedal when set as a phase 90, but when you use the script button you hit the perfect tone for some of my favorites to play, " ain't talkin bout love", "eruption", even kicking it on for solos in Panama and others is addictive. I use it on all different songs. If you add the bonus of the EVH flanger you can nail Unchained and the like. There are only about 6 or 7 pedals I feel are essential and this is certainly one of them. Plus the fact that it is sturdy as the original. If people have trouble with it it might be because they need to take it out of the in-line set up and put it in the effects loop, I learned this also with the Flanger.

Very, very dissappointing pedal

By KoRn Fan!!!???

from Sylvania, Ohio

Comments about MXR EVH Eddie Van Halen Phase 90:

Despite this pedal's great looks, the E.V.H. Phase Shifter, (Phase 90) the pedal stinks. i bought this pedal today, and played my Gibson S.G. on it and was bored within five minutes. Only four or five songs sound descent with the pedal. I have absolutely no idea what the "Script" button does, because for me it has absolutely no purpose. (???) it's only got one adjustment knob. if you really need a Phase Shifter, please don't waste your money or time, get the Boss PS-3. Eddie is God of guitar, but not at making good pedals... :(

Best Phaser I've Heard

By SlunkLord57

from Harper Woods, MI

Comments about MXR EVH Eddie Van Halen Phase 90:

I was always looking for a good phaser to put on my pedalboard. I wanted one that was simple to use, sounded great, and did simply what a phaser should do. I tried Boss and Digitech, and their phasers did little to entice me. They just weren't my style. Then, I came across this pedal and I played it. Now, I am a fan of Van Halen and his tones, and this signature phaser is no different. The script button on the top definitely makes the pedal dig deeper, and whenever I trun it on, I just feel like shredding my life away. Simply a must buy pedal.

Awesome pedal

By Dave

from Philly

Comments about MXR EVH Eddie Van Halen Phase 90:

This pedal is great don't let it fool you with just the one knob, it's great. it also gives a good boost for when your soloing. Even when you just turn the knob it change the sound completly. If you own this I recomend the 9 O'clock position on the knob for that signature Eddie Van Halen sound.

EVH Phase 90

By TooLoud

from McMinnville, OR

Comments about MXR EVH Eddie Van Halen Phase 90:

Easily one of the best phasers out there. With the added "script" switch, it's twice the pedal my old Phase90 is. Though it does alter the signal's tone, I love the way it sounds--the temptation to just leave it on at a low setting overwhelms. Price notwithstanding, this is the perfect pedal--a must-own!

Why would you want more?

By Seanshine

from Hollysprings, GA

Comments about MXR EVH Eddie Van Halen Phase 90:

Sure it has Eddie's name on it but I'm not even a EVH fan. I bought this pedal because it's just better. It has more clarity, less to none of the distortion of the original and it has more of a crispness to the phase effect. Alot of people complain about how the "script" switch doesn't do anything but they just aren't listening. When the switch is pressed in it has a more subtle effect like the M-101. When the switch is out it just makes the effect a smidge brighter. Almost sharper. Listen through headphones to really hear it. If you're a fan of the Phase 90 M-101 and want a replacement or just want a new one... then get this pedal. It's definitely worth it.

    Must Have

    By the man

    from winston-salem, NC

    Comments about MXR EVH Eddie Van Halen Phase 90:

    this thing is a must have for anyone who has a pedal board especially because it has a beautiful warm sound, it looks amazing, you can create your own sound, recreate eddies, and it�ۡ���s basically buying two in one. You get the standard phase 90 block version and the script version at the push of a button. I have had this pedal for a while now and I can honestly say I will never remove it, if it breaks ill get a new one. All I�ۡ���m saying is, you buy this, you'll agree with my reasons to get it, and make your own to keep it.

    Simply Eddie

    By Dan Cannon

    from N/A

    Comments about MXR EVH Eddie Van Halen Phase 90:

    If you have ever heard the Eruption solo and liked it, it's in part to the MXR Phase 90 script. when combined with EVH he turns another pedal into the pedal guitarists wish they had. as a guitarist,i have listened to Van Halen and seen them in concert in Chicago,where there was quite a performance like always. so when i used the pedal for the first time i was stunned at the distortion it put out. i have a Ibanez Superstrat with 2 alnico IV pickups and a single coil. i turned on the pedal and started playing part of eruption,what i know,and when combine with the tremolo,the pedal is top notch. Five Stars man.

    All-around great phaser!

    By MARTY BARBEE

    from NC

    Comments about MXR EVH Eddie Van Halen Phase 90:

    I've owned this pedal for a few years now and I use it consistently in live situations. In my experience, it does exactly what it advertises; it provides a simple, classic phaser tone with a little added versatility. I've heard many reviewers complain that the Script switch has no effect on the tone, but it truly does allow you to alternate between a more intense, modern sound and the subtle effect that vintage Phase 90s had. This option has proven to be very useful, both in cases where I needed a more subtle effect as well as times when I wanted the phaser to boldly cut through the mix. Seeing as this pedal is not true-bypass, there is a minimal amount of tone loss but it's nothing a good buffer can't fix. Whether you're chasing that classic Van Halen tone or simply looking for a quality phaser, this pedal will satisfy your needs!
