"EVH PHASE 90 IS A WINNER!!"
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.
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.
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!
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).
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!
