Excellent, versatile little pedal for a range of classic, usable phasing effects. Not just for Van Halen fans, this pedal with it's "script" button gives you both effect types found in the standard MXR Phaser, and reissue "script logo" models. (It's just a subtle difference, mainly the standard MXR has a little more harsher mid-tone spike to it which is great for a pronounced phase rhythm effect, and the more tamed "script logo" sound which is better when soloing with distortion.) It's construction looks very solid, it's blue "on" light is practically blinding (like a deer in the headlights?). The only little annoyance I had when hooking this pedal onto my pedalboard was where the AC connecting input slot was found - on the side, close to the 1/4 inch guitar cable coupler. It just meant I had to place the phaser a little further apart than normal, to clear the daisy-chain connector. Apart from that, it's an excellect phaser and highly recommended for all styles, whether you're playing clean or overdriven, rock or jazz, or anything in-between.


This is simple as it gets with one knob and a one toggle button to work with. Simple and easy.


The quality is awesome. It nails all kinds awesome phaser sounds. VH all day long. I use it a lot for small little bits for leads. Just adds some great layering to it.


The Phase 90 pedal offers everything that went wrong with digitally produced sounds. I've used several Line 6 products over the years, such as the Pod, Spider and Flextone, but nothing can come close to the authentic sound of that tiny phase box. This is a simple device but can tweak your sound toward more retro music such as Sonic Youth. If you want Phase, this is the way to go.
