The Boss PH-3 Phase Shifter is a phase shifter in the form of a guitar stomp box. It is an analog pedal and has a 1/4 inch input and output for your amp and your instrument. It is also built well and should be functional for a long time if treat it right. It is not rackable as it is a pedal.


The setup and general configuration of the pedal is extremely simple to follow. It is also really easy to get a great sound from this. It has a knob to control the rate of the phaser and has a switch to change the color. I don't have a manual for, but controlling and set up this pedal couldn't be easier.


While this isn't the most versatile phaser on the market, the simple phase shifting tone it produces is quite warm and is rich overall. I have only used this with guitar, but have heard of others using it with electric keyboards with great success. By varying the rate, you can get a few different phaser flavors and the tone color switch is also helpful when trying to vary your tone.


Overall, I have found the Boss PH-3 phase shifter to be incredibly useful over the four years that I have been using it. Not only is it built extremely tough and looks great, it is a great sounding pedal that is as easy to use as they come. Its more versatile then its competitors by far. The price isn't too expensive and I have grown to love the unique and rich sounding pedals that Boss makes. If you are in the market for a phaser, this is definitely worth a try. Look around online for these, for some reason people are selling them pretty cheap, that’s their loss. Because this is a great pedal at a great price and it will last you along time.
