The MXR M-101 Phase 90 Pedal is an effect pedal without all the bells and whistles you usually find in modern effects. Don't let the lack of features fool you though. This pedal gets the job done. The center knob gives you control of the "wave frequency" of the phaser signal (how fast the phase sounds). The the button to activate the effect makes a loud "click" when depressed which lets you know its on. When I was looking for a phaser pedal I was choosing between this one (MXR M-101 Phase 90 Pedal) and the Boss PH-3 Phase Shifter pedal. Both have their positives and negatives, but out of personal taste, I decided that I didn't need all the features that came with the more expensive Boss pedal (dont get me wrong, its also a great pedal). The PH-3 gave me all I needed, a thick, rich sounding phase effect, with simplicity. In case you don't know the phase effect is a "sweeping sound". It sounds like a plane flying back and forth across the sky. Really cool.

I love this pedal. The only reason why it gets a 5 for overall rating is because of an issue that this pedal has. I bought one of these a month ago and thought something was wrong with it so I sold it and bought another one about 2 weeks ago and it still has the same problem. If you use this pedal in a clean tone with Humbuckers it sounds distorted. If you run the pedal through overdirve or fuzz it sounds fantastic. The only way to get this pedal to sound good in a clean channel is to use Single Coil Pickups. Thankfully my guitar has Coil-Splitting so I waws unable to avoid the distortion. After doing some reserch I found out that this re-issue has a Low Input Threshold and because of that if you use Humbuckers the pedal sounds distorted. So beware of this if you are planning on purchasing this pedal and you only have humbuckers. But other than that flaw, I love this pedal. Sounds very organic and rich.
Only one knob. You only need one knob, thats the beauty of this pedal. It adjusts the speed only. This pedal does not need any other knobs, it is that easy.
I don't think that regular use as a studio musician or giging musician will break this pedal unless you abuse it. Built like a tank.
it is a great deal considering Boss pedals are more and they are not analog like this pedal it.

    My son been playing electric fender guitars for years and loves the effects of this pedal. Nothing's better than seeing him play and be happy with a new guitar product. Shipping was fast and very prompt . Would purchase from this guitar center over and over again!

      Love this one. One would wonder how much different settings you could achieve with one knob. The sound is wonderful and it is very responsive before distortion pedal as well as after. I like my phase 90 after distortion. The sound is creamy and larger than life.

            Comments about MXR M-101 Phase 90 Pedal:

            The MXR Phase 90 has been around for a long time and I'll admit I forgot about it. I recently added a new Phase 90 to my bass rig and I like it. Phasing adds tones and textures that other pedals can't get. The MXR is pretty simple with just one knob, but it does everything you need. It makes you wish all pedals were this simple.The M-101 version adds a slight boost to the mids and lows that is very musical. The pedal also responds very well to your attack from subtle smoothness to funky sounds. All in all, it's a great addition for any bassist's setup. Thank you Guitar Center for carrying this product.

              This pedal is exactly what I expected. Easy to handle and well built. I like to use it combined with distortion or drive + delay. If you are unsure of which pedal buy remember that this pedal is used by various rock legends. An excellent addition to your pedalboard

              When I got this pedal I was excited, I had wanted one for about 4 years and finally decided to just break down and get one. After playing it for awhile I was a little let down, in addition to the phaser effect it gave a small gain boost that was undesired. I wasn't a big fan of it. I considered returning it, but then as I was about to bring it back I decided to play with it again just to make sure I wanted to get rid of it. All of a sudden I fell in love with it again, even with the small gain boost! I have it one with almost every song I play, it adds just a small flavor to everything you play!

              Comments about MXR M-101 Phase 90 Pedal:

              It doesn't have much control for the phasing, but that is not bad news at all. It gives a lot of nice phasing great tones. If you want more control over the effect buy another one. Nevertheless, I think you should get another one only if your music is based on this effect, that way you can have more control of it. Otherwise, this is a wonderful machine. I love the way it sounds with my distortion. With the clean sound, just with a little of it, sounds incredible too, specially for those slow songs. Another turn on is the price; it is very economical. Like I said before in other reviews, you can't go wrong with MXR. Among other good brands like Mad Professor, Earth Quaker Devices and TC Electronics, this is one of the best

              I bought this to add some spice to my solos and to nail Eddie's early sound. It does it perfect. I set the knob between 8 and 9 O'Clock and it is just what I need.
