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 bought this pedal right before the guitar center where I live in ky. I asked the employee of I could just buy it with pro coverage and see if I want it. if not could I bring it back. he said I could no problem. but the problem was as soon as I got home I plugged the pedal in the right order and the light came on. did not phase at all it was on but it was literally TRUE BYPASS. and I looked up what could be wrong. turns out im not the only one with this problem. so please test it before you buy. don't make the same mistake I did.

MXR Phase

By Floydian

from Reno, Nevada

Comments about MXR M-101 Phase 90 Pedal:

Simple to use with only one knob. You can dial in sweeping phase reminiscent of early Pink Floyd or add distortion and shred like EVH. This pedal should be part of any guitarist's rig.

Amazing pedal

By Rebecca of Karma In The City

from Las Vegas, NV

Comments about MXR M-101 Phase 90 Pedal:

This is a great pedal for any guitar. To be more specific, the sound is closest to the Led Zeppelin song "No Quarter". Please do be warned though, that this is basically the exact same pedal as the EVH phase 90 except a little more "retro" looking. None the less, this is an amzing pedal, which is simple, and has a great sound.

Must Have

By C. H. Robinson

from Palmyra, NJ

Comments about MXR M-101 Phase 90 Pedal:

It only gets a 4 b/c of it's simplicity, price could be lower, and it does distort your tone in clean settings. May not be the best for solid state clean channel amps... but every guitarist should have one. Owning one of these not only gives you a little piece of rock history, but also a dang good Phase effect. Not many players have practical use for a crazy over the top phase sound and that makes this pedal all the more special. This pedal is on many pro pedal boards and will continue to be there. The best aspect of this pedal is that even at the highest speed setting the effect never takes over your guitar signal!

Great phaser for the price

By don't_go_on_me

from Minnesota

Comments about MXR M-101 Phase 90 Pedal:

The Phase 90 is the most basic phaser you can get. One knob for speed is all it has, and it's all you need...pretty simple! For me, the Phase 90 gave me a bit of a sharp high boost. Some folks like this, personally I prefer a more vintage sounding phase tone. A DIY mod takes about 5 minutes and is terribly easy (the "R28 mod"). Basically you just clip the R28 transistor and the pedal will no long boost when activated. Of course, to be warned, this will make your warranty invalid. Something to look into if you want a smoother, more "vintage" tone. Regardless, the Phase 90 is a great phaser for the cash which explains why it's the standard phaser on many pedalboards.

Everything You Need

By Joe

from Kirkland, Washington

Comments about MXR M-101 Phase 90 Pedal:

The Phase 90 pedal has everything you need in a phaser pedal and nothing you don't need. My friend owns the EVH version of this pedal, and trust me, its not worth the extra 40 dollars for the "EVH" version of the same thing. It is incredibly simple to use making it extra handy on stage, plus the thing is a tank, you could chuck it on cement and it would be fine. If you want a Phaser pedal that will last a long time, is simple to use, and sounds great I recommend this pedal for you.

Phase 90 for Bass Guitar

By Jeff

from Portland, OR

Comments about MXR M-101 Phase 90 Pedal:

I've been looking for a good Phaser for my bass guitar for a while. Some of the best bass phasers cost upwards of $300, so I decided to try out a selection of guitar phasers to see if any of them worked. Out of the 3 or 4 pedals I tried, the Phase 90 produced the highest quality effect across the spectrum. The effect isn't as noticeable in the lower octaves, but it stands out in the higher octaves. The only reason I have it a 4 out of 5 for a bass guitar is that I wish the effect was a bit more audible at the lower octaves and as there are not any settings to adjust, you just get what you get. Otherwise great pedal.

Albert King

By Stephen

from Racine, Wisconsin

Comments about MXR M-101 Phase 90 Pedal:

I bought this pedal mainly because I am a huge Albert King fan. I can play most of his solos note for note. When I heard he had used one of these I had to have it. On the low settings and sometimes middle is where I can tell he set it. This pedal makes for killer A.K. blues and adds a nice tone to your guitar. The only problem I could find with it was that the rubber cover that comes with it will not come off once it is placed on the nob. It is a quality pedal and is built solidly. I hope to get a video up sometime soon to demo it, Albert King style.

    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.

    Comments about MXR M-101 Phase 90 Pedal:

    this pedal is very simple and very limited.The only thing you have control over is the speed. The pedal is easy to to turn on but it also adds distortion. Overall i wouldve got the ph3 phase shifter

    Great pedal!

    By Guitardo

    from Hesperia Ca

    Comments about MXR M-101 Phase 90 Pedal:

    I bought it for the cool orange color and to sound like E.V.H. whenever I play "Eruption". I admit that, because it's "stock" sound is a little too swooshy for me, I went ahead and did the fabled "R-28" mod.(clip off resistor #28 on the circuit board. note; this totally voids the warranty but makes the pedal sound killer!)so it would sound more like the well respected old "script logo" pedal. The MXR Phase 90 pedal is a classic in my opinion, worth the money, lasts a lifetime!

    Too Bad...

    By Nightbreed

    from St. Louis, MO

    Comments about MXR M-101 Phase 90 Pedal:

    I bought this instead of the EVH Phase 90 (and Ill be taking it back) because they sounded roughly the same and it was cheaper. It sounded good on the store amp, but when i plugged it in at home and put a little distortion on it, and it sounded really harsh and nasty. Maybe it was my distortion, but i would get the script reissue instead.

    Every electric guitarist should have one

    By Ryan Lauderdale

    from Houston, TX

    Comments about MXR M-101 Phase 90 Pedal:

    Simple, easy to use, creamy phase, good for clean and distorted tones. What more could you need in a phaser pedal, unless you're extremely extreme with it? This pedal speaks for itself. I recommend to any guitarist.

    Amazing Phaser

    By MANUEL SUAREZ

    from MD

    Comments about MXR M-101 Phase 90 Pedal:

    I started listening to different types of metal recently, and I decided to get effects for my guitar. After doing some research, I bought this MXR with no hesitation, and I love this little pedal. The phase effect it gives to the guitar is incredible, and it's a useful pedal for any genre. I own a Line 6, and I tried the effects it comes with, but they are nothing if you compare them to this pedal. Buying this pedal is a must.

    Stunned by this Phaser

    By Ben

    from undisclosed

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about MXR M-101 Phase 90 Pedal:

    For years I have read about how the Phase 90 is the best moderately priced "phaser" pedal out there. I was creating a new pedal board to upgrade from lower-priced and, presumably, less esoteric pedals to improve my sound. I decided to incorporate the Phase 90 in the mix of new pedals. It does not disappoint. It sounds terrific and it does live up to its reputation. I highly recommend it.
