    Default Next Project....Vintage Sounding MXR Phase 90

    It'll blow away the stock sounding MXR Phase 90 reissue! A pedal just has to have the right components in there,but the MXR Phase 90 also benefits alot from matched transistors in the circuit...This has always been one of my favorite phase shifters...I own an early EH Small Stone that I Love,but the early Phase 90 has a different overall "mojo" and phase tone I Like...

    Listen to "Achille's Last Stand" on Led Zeppelin's "Presence" album and that's a Phase 90 as is alot of early EVH stuff...Great pedal..

    Ya know, I was recently watching my Led Zep DVD's (the one with Monument Valley on the cover) and I never realized how much he used a phaser on alot of songs. How 'bout that phase effect on the drums in Kashmir - awesome sound.

    Let us know how it turns out. I would be interested in getting one modded.

    I got an Eddie Van Halen MXR Phase 90 for Christmas and I rarely turn it off. It is magical.

    Yes, the EVH pedal is really great. In script mode it sounds EXACTLY like a vintage MXR Phase 90. The EVH pedal is hard to beat.

    Have you actually A/Bd that pedal to a vintage MXR Phase 90? People say they don't? Wondering?

    I've been looking for a great sounding Phase 90 Stratdeluxer.... Let me know how your research goes and maybe we can hook up! Love Page's Ten Years Gone sound with the Phase 90... Also the Shattered sound Keith Richards got.

    I find with any of the newer Phase 90 pedals, the EVH included that i have tried the effect is too quiet! I really want it to sound like a boost when i kick it on.....

    I'll let you know how it turns out? I have the board all done up and all components mounted on it...I'm only planning on building pedals for myself at this point in time though...Very labor intensive,and I don't see any money in building the pedals....Selling kits might be another story though?
