The "Phaser" is a pure 100% analog, hand-build, highly versatile modulation effect pedal and one of the finest studio quality phaser pedals in existence! It´s a script logo phaser on steroids - same legendary sound, very, very lush but with more controls and NO noise!
It does the "Univibe" thing, a good "Leslie" simulation, and of course the well known 4 stage phase swirl! It´s very transparent with an organic tone you will love.
Compared to the vintage units the Vahlbruch "Phaser" has plenty of useful controls. First there is a "Depth" control implemented. Together with the "Speed" knob you can adjust a huge variety of different phasing sounds. It´s a highly flexible pedal and the range of modulation sounds is very, very wide. I´m sure you will find your sweet spots! Additionally, there is a Volume control, which is called "Mix". This knob enables you to balance the phaser pedal output volume with the original bypassed instrument signal.
The pedal can also be used as a buffer and discreet booster with or without phasing effect. Simply turn the "Depth"-control to minimum and adjust the "Mix" knob to the desired output level.
You can place the Vahlbruch "Phaser" before or after distortion pedals, in front of your amp or in the effect loop.
Thanks to its extremely large signal-to-noise ratio the Vahlbruch "Phaser" shows extremely low background noise and is therefore suited for any studio work and professional live performance.
The pedal has a true bypass switch for perfect signal transfer without any tone loss. A blue LED shows you the on/off status. You can use a 9V battery to power the pedal or an external standard 9V power supply (ring +, tip -). The power consumption is approximately 15mA.
The "Phaser" pedal has NO pcb-mounted jacks, NO pcb-mounted footswitch and NO pcb-mounted pots! This certainly means more effort building the pedal compared to industrial mass production but it´s truly worth it!
Like all Vahlbruch pedals the "Phaser" is hand-made utilizing only the best components available worldwide for high-end tone and years of trouble free operation.
100% pure analog - made in Germany.
