Whirlwind Rochester Orange Box Phaser Pedal

Get that vintage swirl with this legendary phaser pedal. It features true bypass and a 9-volt power inlet.

The Whirlwind Orange Box phaser is the swirling edgy phaser that started it all! The Orange Box phaser pedal is a handwired classic that features select resistors paired with hand matched components to achieve the same smooth and warm modulation as the original. The Orange Box phaser pedal provides gobs of thick rich tone. This little box can be heard on more hit albums than any other FX box in history-hands down.

"As one of the original founders of MXR, I first brought these effects pedals to guitarists almost 40 years ago. They were the ones that started a revolution and no one has made them quite the same since...hand-wired, American made, built to last forever and with the exact same circuits and quality components.

It's the way we did it back then and it's the way we've approached everything we've done since. With this line of vintage pedals, the ONLY things we changed are the addition of true-bypass, a 9 Volt power inlet and an LED to indicate when they're active.

To celebrate 40 years in rock-n-roll, we're proud to release the Rochester Series pedals. You're gonna love 'em."

- Michael Laiacona, President and owner of Whirlwind

I was stuck between buying this phaser, the MXR Vintage 74 phaser, and an EHX Small Stone. This one is amazing. I used to have a regular MXR block logo phase 90. This thing is 100 times better than that. It is just as good as the MXR Vintage 74 in terms of sound. But, this one is better you get a bright blue LED, True Bypass, and you can power it with a power supply. It sounds good on all settings, and it isn't noisy like some EHX pedals can be. You get instant RUSH phasing and Van Halen too. It sounds great clean and distorted both before and after distortion. But it's pretty strong when you use it after distortion, which I like because it sounds crazier! Whirlwind for the Win!

The sound quality is amazing. Clean and Crisp. Smooth Warm phasing. Never harsh or craps out when you pick hard or use a lot of distortion.

One Knob. Believe me you don't want more. Keep it Simple. Even comes with a little pouch bag for it, and some stickers for fun.

Ease of Use
Super easy to get a good sound. Honestly, it sounds great on every setting! My drummer could tell the difference between my old phaser n this one. Even he likes this one way more.

Super Super well made! This thing is the best I've tried. Definitely worth twice the price of my old phase 90.

If I lost it, I would try and it find cheaper but if I couldn't, read more I would buy it at this price and not regret it. Definitely worth the extra $20 when compared MXR 74 vintage phase 90.
