John Paul Jones phaser

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by BluesProgMetal, Jan 26, 2012.

  1. Hey guys, My band is going to be covering a few Led Zeppelin songs in an upcoming show. One of the songs we are covering is No Quarter,and since I will be playing Piano I need to know what phaser he uses . I have a phase 90 but it distorts at the higher speeds required for the song.

    What phaser will suit me?

  3. i don't think it's a phaser on no quarter..a tremelo or rotovibe(rotating speaker simulator) perhaps but,I can get that vibe with my EHX small stone phase....
  4. I know he used a leslie speaker cab for the song heart breaker.
  5. Actually, I'm pretty sure that is NOT a leslie. Everything I've ever heard was that it was a Hohner Electra Piano through a Maestro PS-1A phaser.
  6. Do you remember where you heard that? Now I'm curious as to what was really used. All I have ever heard was it was a leslie with some overdrive.

    Didn't JPJ use a Fender Rhodes Piano on No Quarter? I am not sure about the modulation though.
  9. According to that link, he used the Hohner on the studio version, and the Rhodes on live shows.

    If I remember correctly it was an old Maestro phaser.

    The Faye SIng doesn't distort at high speeds. I mean you can hunt down some vintage Maestro if you must. I am not sure how easy they are to find or how much.
    EQD Grand Orbiter is a good phaser and vibrato that works good at high speeds too.
