"Best Phaser I've ever tried"

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, I would buy it at this price and not regret it. Definitely worth the extra $20 when compared MXR 74 vintage phase 90.
No need yet.
The Wow Factor
Looks great. The blue LED is BRIGHT!!! Sounds amazing. Instant 70s tone. If you don't believe me check out a youtube clip and I think you'll agree this thing sounds awesome :)
