    I have an original vintage 1977 (?) US model and I like it a lot. I don't use it much in my band situation mainly because it seems to suck the life out of my sound, but it is fun to play with. If I could figure out the true bypass mod (can anyone help me here?) then I would use it more. It sounds very sweet with bass, especially if you put a distortion/OD/Fuzz in front of it. I use the color switch and set the knob about at 11 or 12 o-clock and I like the dreamy-creamy swoosh it gives. I like the analog sound from it.

    yeah.....i like the swoosh sound.....you mean by the bypass mod.....you would like to have the sound not be coloured(no reference to the colour parameter) when the pedal is not in operation....you should enquire about this on analogue heaven my fave mailing list.....anything other than the swooshie sound gives me a weak lfo type modulation ........i use my roland sh09 to modulate my signal so i might just get rid of it...i dunno....i just was offered a dod fx25 which is the envelope follower.......so that would be alot more useful to me.......i dunno......are there any other phase shifters that you have played that are better sounding? my opinion is on the reissue only....maybe i need the original...i dunno...i was expecting some of that Flea style from sir psycho sexy.....this doesnt come close to that ripple sound....anyhow.....peace
