Univox Micro Fazer
The Univox Micro Fazer is a simply made vintage phaser pedal designed for use with electric guitar and other electric instruments like keyboards. It is an analog pedal and has standard 1/4" connections for input and output. It is on the smaller size for guitar pedals, but isn't unusually small. It isn't rackable - it is a foot pedal.

UTILIZATION

The make up of the Univox Micro Fazer is incredibly simple, as it really only has a single parameter to work with. It simply has an adjustable knob on the side to control the rate of the effect. There isn't any further control available with the Micro Fazer. For this reason, a manual isn't necessary under any circumstances.

SOUND QUALITY

The sound of the Univox Micro Fazer is overall very realistic and certainly has the sound that you'd expect a pedal from the '70s to have. I've used the pedal for a single recording session in tandem with a Gibson Les Paul and a Marshall JCM 800 amplifier. While the pedal does reduce the volume of your guitar a little bit, for the session it didn't really matter for us. However, I could see this being a pain for a live show. The pedal will undoubtedly draw comparisons the MXR Phase 90 and pedals in a similar vein due to the look and the single parameter, but is doesn't have the exact sound. The Micro Fazer is a bit less clean sounding than the Phase 90 and a bit muddier in general.

OVERALL OPINION

I definitely would never recommend against the Univox Micro Fazer, but at the same time it wouldn't be my first choice for a phaser pedal. Don't get me wrong, I like the way that it sounds a whole lot, but it is unfortunate that it doesn't have more control. While you get the same thing with the MXR Phase 90, the Phase 90 makes up for it in sheer tone quality and I don't believe that Micro Fazer. If you do however come across one I'd definitely encourage you to try it out for yourself...

Univox Micro Fazer
Analog Phaser 70s Case Type maxon reissue, barely larger black metal. 1 single knob, for speed.

I put this note for 2 reasons:
- As often with oldies pedals, no plug for power supply 9V battery therefore mandatory or 9V clip connected to the power supply ...
- OFF, the pedal is not neutral. It produces a wave disturbance sound synchronized with the speed of the effect: it is better isolate in a true bypass loop

USE

It can not be simpler

SOUND QUALITY

The sound is beautiful ... This is typically the phaser seventies, liquid, soft, warm, alive! ...

NOTICE GLOBAL

In short, if you want to include this pedal in your rig, you will need a 9v clip (or so it will be the batteries! ...) And a loop type of insulation "true bypass loop" (or so it will be " sucking tone ")

But it is full of charm, the sound is beautiful!
