This box goes more in line with the boxes EI uses for their Big Muff distortion/fuzz pedals. This is a very simple design as it only has a single control knob switch and a single color switch. This case itself is very small and fits pretty easily on any pedal board or rack unit. You don't really need a manual because it has one switch and one control an knob and any monkey could probably figure out how to use this devise.
The only reason to buy this one over the compact is that this looks like the old EI products. If you like the tone of the original MXR phasers then you will like the sound of this effect. They don't sound that great in a clean setting but when you give it some distortion then it really get a very usable and cool sound. If you have ever listened to any early Van Halen album then you have probably heard a phaser in action. Of course it wasn't this particular model but the sound is the same. It i a cool pedal to have on your pedal board to use sparingly but not all the time.
Overall this is a very cool pedal to own and I think every guitar player should own one of these at some point . Whether that be this one of another the phaser pedal is very usable and very fun to play with. This pedal is a very good quality item and at the price new you can't really beat that. You can find them for right at around 480 which is an excellent price for this unit.
