Warm Audio WA-JP Jet Phaser Vintage Phaser Pedal

No longer available at zZounds
Those '70s blazing phase tones are back! The Warm Audio Jet phaser pedal features four unique phase and fuzz combinations for that vintage phaser sound.

The seventies were an amazing time in music, when the swirl of phaser effects were everywhere on the radio. From the guitar work of David Gilmour, Brian May and Eddie Van Halen to the trail-blazing keyboard stylings of Steely Dan, Herbie Hancock and Paul Simon's Richard Tee, it seemed like everyone was incorporating phasers into their sound.

Of all of the designs available during that time period, one phaser pedal stood apart from the others due to its flexibility, sound quality and addition of fuzz sounds, and it was immediately adopted by funk bass pioneer Larry Graham as the core of his modulated sound with both Sly and The Family Stone and his own Graham Central Station.

The Warm Audio Jet Phaser is a hyper-authentic recreation of this famous pedal, accurate from the gooey swirl of the audio circuit to the look and feel of the enclosure, except that it's true bypass and far more affordable and reliable than vintage units!

The Jet Set

The Jet Phaser contains six modes, with two labeled "PHASE" and four labeled "JET". The two PHASE modes produce traditional phasing effects, with the first having moderate modulation depth for more subtle sounds, and the second having increased depth for more exaggerated results. However, the similarities to normal phase pedals end there. The four JET modes engage the "jet" (or fuzz) effect, and that's when things get seriously fun!

There are four fuzz/phase combinations:

- Bright fuzz/shallow phase
- Bright fuzz/deep phase
- Dark read more fuzz/shallow phase
- Dark fuzz/deep phase

Better still, when the JET modes are active, the pedal's output level is controlled by the JET LEVEL knob. This enables you to set up the JET modes as a boost, if desired-perfect for solos!

Creative Control

The Jet Phaser also features a RESONANCE control that's available in all six modes, allowing you to dial in varying amounts of filtered sci-fi craziness. Additionally, you get creative control of the modulation rate: the SLOW RATE knob allows you to set the main modulation speed, but hitting the FAST/SLOW foot switch always kicks the rate up to the maximum speed possible. It's a cool design, because the change from fast to slow ramps up and down gradually like an organ's rotary speaker. Unlike most phasers, the Jet Phaser can actually get "in-between" speeds by continuously hitting the FAST/SLOW foot switch like organ players do!

The Jet Phaser's true bypass operation makes it easy to incorporate into any rig, and the fact that it runs at 18V gives it high headroom and pristine audio quality (it can be powered with the included 18VDC adapter or optionally by two 9V batteries). You already know it'll sound great on guitar, bass, and keys, but don't let that stop you from slapping it on a vocal track or a drum bus - use your imagination!
