Boss set out to top its accomplishments of the PH-1 and the Boss Ph-1R. This adds a rate control knob and a switch for two different phasing modes. You have all of the same features and tone as the original and the PH-1r but the added rate knob and mode switch allows the user to get even more tonal options and possibilities of your guitar signal.

SOUND QUALITY

The tone of this phaser is a pretty good one. You get more of the feel of the MXR flanger in this pedal. You have the rate, depth, and res, with the added mode switch which is very similar to the MXR flanger. The tone of this is all analog and you can really hear that feel in the tone.

You can really hear the difference in the two mode selections. The first section as a more milder tone phase. The sound is not as thick and is cutting less in the signal. The second mode is more in your face. You hear the effect pedal a lot more and there is less of a dry signal in the guitar circuit. Both modes are very easy and usable in almost any application. It just comes down to which one you prefer over the other in any give situation.

OVERALL OPINION

These pedals were made from 1984 to 2001, so the used market is the only way to go. I have seen them on the classifieds for right around $65 or so. The used ones from Japan are easily identified as they have a black label and sometimes fetch more money than the made in Taiwan ones do. I would recommend his pedal to anyone who loves the sound of an analog phase circuit and wants ones of the most perfect sounding pedals that has ever been created to do that.
