Ibanez PH10 Bi-Mode Phaser
It is a monophonic analog phaser guitar pedal format (doc at: http://filters.muziq.be/model/ibanez/10/ph10 ).

Something not so common, there is a switch to change modes with 6 floors (phasing light), a 10-story mode (phasing deep).

UTILIZATION

No need for manual: you turn the knobs and listen. The knobs are reliable: it is easy to find his sound.

SOUND QUALITY

The sound is clear and warm (often, we associate the so-called "warmth" to the effects that actually eat up the treble, this is not the case: we find at the end all that has at the entrance!)

10 story mode we find the typical sound of a phaser 70's, like "Black Betty", rather connotations. But it is also possible with a short set to get a nice tremolo (which mutes the effect of the rhythm guitar): very nice for the brit-pop and hints of 60's. Feedback by pushing the bottom, we get more 80's sound that seems out of a synthesizer, perfect for electro sequences.

Mode 6 floors, there is a very subtle sound, air, alternative that will fit well in the flange, to modulate the sound without going through periods where it seems too filtered. But if you are looking for the famous "sound of jet take-off", only a good flanger can get it.

In addition to this mode setting accessible via a switch, there are three knobs:
-FEEDBACK: The amount of regeneration / feedback (the sound is re-injected into the treatment). The more one increases, the effect is more pronounced.
-WIDTH: width of the phasing sweep. The chorus and flanger are based on the fact of the original sound mix varying amounts of the "detuned" and so supposedly random delayed (lag time and frequency), the phaser, it, is as its name indicates a phase shift: the width of this filter / comb-filtering rule that the width parameter.
-SPEED: speed of scanning. The phaser effect that varied phase shift in time, with fast speed gives a close Tremolo effect, with a slow speed, you get something that is closer flanger.

In summary, much more sophisticated than a regular phaser, but obviously not as much as a MuTron Biphase ...

OVERALL OPINION

I use it on everything: my stratocaster, drum machines, samples. It acts as a multi-effects through its ability to generate very different treatments, each time with a sound personality who "sign" the sound without betraying it.
Very different from the boss phasers, which at that time (1994) has guided my choice to him for all-the-world boss played on and off-the-world sounded the same.

He excels in creating clean sounds without distorting the original personality of the guitar (unless it is pushed to the bottom 10 floors mode).

It marries well with a distortion effect for hendrixiens, but again it is not tomorrow the day that I will copy a thousand times its course.

With it you have a choice: you are free to sound like a clone, which develop with it an unmistakable personality ...

An effect of high class, which I separate myself that if I had to choose between selling it or sell one of my kidneys!
