    i tried out the older Boss PH2 next to a new guyatone ps3, they both sound really good. But the Boss seemed to have a greater range of sounds and a thicker tone. But i still liked the PS3 as well, it had a more organic sound.
    have you owned either of these pedals?
    thanks

    The Boss eats lows like crazy, to the point where I found it unusable. The Guyatone doesn't.

    I have played both but a couple years past between them. I couldn't call that an accurate comparison. The PS3 is much cleaner and "reasonnable", while the Phase 90 is a one trick crazy unit.
     
  5. Jazz Ad, it seems like you've got some experience with Guyatone pedals... do they suck out any low-end (chorus? phaser? delay?)
    You know where to get'm in Europe?
