Head-Spinning Phaser Sounds -- Eddie Van Halen Style

MXR has taken their Phase 90 pedal design and brought a little EVH flavor to the table with the hypnotic-sounding EVH90 Van Halen Phase 90 pedal. Unchain your signal for a whirlwind of mind=spinning phase modulation via one simple speed control knob. A script switch allows you to toggle between a vintage "Script Logo" phase tone and a more modern "Block Logo" phase effect. A secure outer chassis keeps your signal ready to rock stomp after stomp, and it's dressed to kill in Van Halen's iconic striped "Frankenstein" graphics. This simple effects pedal will spin your tone at mesmerizing velocities, captivating listeners in assured Van Halen style.

Instantly Recognizable Graphic Design

You know you've seen it before. It's that immediately recognizable striped graphic design that was all over Eddie Van Halen's infamous Frankenstrat axe. The EVH Phase 90 pedal is dressed in the same threads that tore up stages for thousands of fans over the years. With one glance at your pedalboard, VH fans will know you're stomping on a pedal designed with the ingenuity and unparalleled playing style of a guitar legend.

Control Your Phase Velocity with a Single Knob

This classic phaser pedal offers a control layout that's as simple as it gets: one knob. You can get a wide dynamic range of velocities, from a mesmerizing slow setting with the speed control all the way to the left, to a neck-breaking lightning-fast setting with it cranked all the way to the right. Play around with this control to see which setting fits your personal playing style -- or dial in the phaser tone you've heard on "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love," "On Fire," "Atomic Punk," and more classic VH tracks.

Script Switch for Two Settings

A sweet bonus feature on this special Phase 90 is its script switch on the top left. This awesome control allows you to toggle between two different types of phase effects. The "Script Logo" phase tone has more of a vintage tinge to it, while the "Block Logo" setting keeps things more modern-sounding. A blue LED light shines when your pedal is engaged, giving off an interesting color against this baby's awesome threads.

Features:

- Speed control determines phase effect pacing
- Script switch toggles between "Script Logo" phase tone and more modern "Block Logo" phaser
- Blue LED light indicates when pedal is engaged
- Powered via 9 volt battery or external power source -- sold separately
- One 1/4" input

Product Description

Edward Van Halen earned his spot in the guitar tone hall of fame with the first note on his debut album in 1978. The guitar work on that album still boggles minds more than 25 years later. The tones that EVH got on that classic record are among the greatest ever, and a huge part of Eddie's guitar sound has always been the MXR Phase 90. The Phase 90 contributed to the unbelievable tones on "Eruption," "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love," "On Fire," and "Atomic Punk," plus many other timeless Van Halen tracks.

Now you can grab a piece of Eddie's magic with the MXR EVH 90 -- a collaboration between Eddie Van Halen and Dunlop Manufacturing that represents a totally redesigned, updated version of the legendary Phase 90. The EVH 90 will give you the same great spacey swirls and hypnotic warbles that made the Phase 90 famous. But the EVH 90 also features the Script switch that lets you instantly toggle between a vintage, "Script Logo" phase tone and a more modern, in-your-face "Block Logo" phaser. Plus, the EVH 90 sports the greatest graphics in the history of rock: the Red, White, and Black stripes from Eddie's legendary Frankenstein guitar.

5 out of 5 (42 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great Pedal"
Sound: I'm not much into pedals, but this is a real stunner. Works equally well for lead and rhythm. Warm, luscious and pulsating washes of sound and with interesting pulses of extra overdi=rive/feedback sounds on occasion. Once you have one you will notice all those songs where one has been used too - and you may not have noticed it before. It fattens up rhythms not unlike a chorus pedal and adds interest to lead work. It sounds very good with your amp on full overdrive or when clean. I have to say I never use it with the knob turned more than halfway up and usually only a quarter turn up or less. You get the van Halen sound with a throbbing Marshall or a more typical 70s sound (Skynyrd, Tull, Thin Lizzy) when coupled with more moderate distortion. There is a very subtle difference + and - the script switch but not a great deal to my ears. Perhaps it means you need only get the regular MXR90? I have to say I almost always engage the script for the "vintage" sound, but this is only because I assumed it woudl sound better. Feature: Its got a knob and script switch. The knob turned up past halfway gets into uncontrollable territory - might be effective for weird sounds once in a while - but I've not used it there yet. The blue diode is so bright it positively dazzles. I guess that's good should thelights go out and you need to see... Ease of Use: Its so easy it hurts! Simplicity is its virtue! Quality: Outstandingly tough. Value: Its very good. With this good a sound it is definitely worth it - which is not the case with most pedals in my experience. Manufacturer Support: Haven't needed any yet. The Wow Factor: Get one now! Actually don't, because then you'll sound as good as me! Overall: Very good product.

"EVH PHASE 90 IS A WINNER!!"
Sound: Absolutely NAILS the early Van Halen tones. Both the "block" and "script" settings are very dynamic, musical, sensitive to the player's touch, and noiseless. The "script" setting is even more rounder, mellower, and warmer than an orange Phase 90 with the R28 mod; I know because I own both and A/B'd them. Feature: The one "rate" knob is all you need. This thing BLOWS AWAY the Boss PH-3 phaser (I own one of them), which has a million knobs on it. Bottom line is, it don't matter how many knobs an effect has if its basic tone is no good. The EVH Phase 90's tone is awesome! Quality: Seems very well built; even better and more heavy-duty than the regular Phase 90's. And the paint job on this is MUCH better than on regular Phase 90's (whose orange paint tends to chip rather easily). Value: It is a bit pricey, but the tone this thing gets makes it definitely worthwhile. The Wow Factor: This has got to be the "feel good" product of the year; it actually lives up to its hype! Overall: Eddie Van Halen fans, especially those of the early/Roth years, should buy this phaser immediately! You will absolutely love it! And anyone who wants a great-sounding, easy-to-use, well-built phaser should buy this as well. I've played many different types of phasers, and own quite a few, and this one is the best-sounding one hands down! This is a winner clear across the board.
