MXR Phase 95 Mini Phaser Pedal

MXR Phase 95 Mini Phaser Pedal

Love the Phase 90 and Phase 45, but need to save precious pedalboard real estate? Have no fear. The Phase 95 combines both circuits into a tiny enclosure.

"Four Phasers in One"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful.
I've owned several phasers over the years; a 1983 MXR Series 2000 Phaser, a Boss Ph-2 Super Phaser and the MXR Zakk Wylde Phase 90. None of them ever really wowed me. (The Series 2000 was the best sounding of the bunch but even it left me underwhelmed.)
Sound
My quest has been that subtle phaser sound as heard on Lynyrd Skynyrd's 'Tuesday's Gone'. The three phasers I had were all too, uh, pungent. Too strong. Then I learned the difference between MXR's 'Script Logo' & 'Block Logo' phasers; the Block Logo has a feedback stage that wasn't a part of the original Script Logo models. (I don't know how to properly define this 'feedback' other than to say it's too much of a good thing.) I just know I prefer the sound of the Script Logo.
Features
The MXR Phase 95 is one seriously awesome pedal. It combines the uber-subtle 'Phase 45' and the more pronounced 'Phase 90' with a switch to toggle between the two phaser modes and another switch to toggle between the Script Logo and Block Logo configurations. Four pedals in one wonderfully small package.
Ease of Use
This pedal has LED's to show you which of the four modes you are using. It also features another LED that flashes at the speed of the sweep. Another WONDERFUL aspect of this "mini pedal" is the location of the 9v power supply input. It's at the back of the pedal instead of on the side. The pedal can only be powered via a power supply as there is no battery compartment. That may be an inconvenience to some but I "daisy chain" my pedals. (I have 25+ FX pedals and good 9v batteries aren't cheap.)
Quality
This pedal appears to be VERY well built. I own eleven Dunlop Era MXR pedals and I've never once had a problem with any of them.
Value
I bought this pedal as a discounted 'blemished' model but it looked unused. It was pristine with all paperwork, etc. Even at the regular price this pedal represents the ultimate in value - it's four pedals in one.
Manufacturer Support
I've never had to contact MXR. For their track record of quality pedals they merit more stars than this page allows.
The Wow Factor
Wow Factor... Hmmm, with this pedal I was finally able to achieve the phaser sound I have been wanting for years. Wow, that's awesome.

"Excellent Phaser!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Love this little phaser. Does everything from warm and subtle to over the top. I've had phasers that are 5 times the size(and price) with 5+ knobs and switches and this thing beats them hands down. Not a bad sound in here. The whole sweep is a sweet spot!

"versatile "
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This phasor pedal is really great,and the only one I ever played.
Sound
I recomend using the power cord that comes w it. It made it sound alot clearer on my setup.
Features
With the phase 90 switch on the effect is on loud compaired to your natural guitar sound,with the phase 45 switch on the sound is more half effect and half natural guitar sound. With the script logo switch on it takes the feedback out and it sounds "shorter" and subdued.
Ease of Use
Twisting the knobs doesnt hurt.
Quality
sturdy,well made.
Value
good value.
Manufacturer Support
n/a but I woulnt mind.

"MXR Phase 95 Mini Phaser Pedal"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This is an amazing pedal. The Script setting is what I look for in an MXR Phase 90. Especially the Custom Shop Script Handwired Phase 90 1974 version. The Script on the Phase 99 is basically the same thing. Perfect for 70's rock. The small size is great and the fact that is does the Script setting and has an on/off LED as well as can use board power makes this a very attractive pedal at roughly $100. A++ on this one.

"Postscript to My Previous Review"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Last year I posted a glowing review of MXR's Phase 95 pedal but I now have more to add...I recently purchased the Whirlwind 'Rochester Series' Orange Box phaser after having read numerous rave reviews about how it is an exact clone of the original 1974 "Script Logo" Phase 90 and is the best sounding pedal for anyone after that classic sound.Well, anyway, it isn't.I received the Orange Box and immediately did an A/B test with my Phase 95.The Phase 95 in the 'Phase 90 Script Logo' setting sounded virtually IDENTICAL to the Whirlwind except that the MXR speed control allowed for slightly more speed. The Orange Box also filtered out some of the highest frequencies which wasn't really noticeable on my Telecaster but was very noticeable on my P-90 equipped Fender Mustang. I will be returning the Orange Box so I'm glad I bought it from zZounds - they don't penalize you for returning an item when it isn't defective. Simply put, the MXR Phase 95 is AWESOME; it's a stunning phaser.I've been using it for almost a year and have not had any problems whatsoever with it.
