    Well, search found some topics on ph-3, but I found nothing on my particular question: Do you recommend buying ph-3 for bass, or does it cut too much of the lower frequencies?

    I always have fun with mine. I don't recall it cutting many bass freq, but I haven't used mine in a while. It's not a transparent effect, that's for sure.

    I have one but don't use it anymore. It's a very lush pedal that doesn't seem to suck much low end, but it's not a quiet pedal. When it's on, it has an annoying whisper that accompanies every note.

    While the phase sounds amazing, the whisper is too annoying for me and I don't use it anymore. I've since gotten far more selective in the pedals I buy.

    I've very recently sold mine. Love it on guitar, but found it really did take away a lot of low end.

    I also found that the phasing effect happened to the higher frequencies, whereas the lows were sucked away, and those that were left just sounded a bit muffled.

    I'm using an active bass though, not sure if that made any difference.

    I takes away some low end, but IMO it's an over the top thing anyway and still sounds pretty good.
