Phaser Fiends Challenge - best phaser for $90 or less on Amazon

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by jazznrick, Oct 14, 2017.

  1. Hey guys,
    This past summer I tried a phaser for the first time and liked it, a lot. So I've just spent too much money on gear, but I have 90 dollars left of an Amazon gift card. So I ask, what's the best phaser available on Amazon for a bassist who loves od, fuzz, rock and a bit of stoner. Thanks!!!

    If you're willing to add $10, very easy - the Electroharmonix Bad Stone reissue. Ridiculously quality pedal.

    It's digital, eh? Does it sound digital?

    Personally, I'm all about the Phase 90 and the Small Stone. Phase 90 has an amazing tone but I like the color switch on the Small Stone a lot, too. I only wish they came with a blend knob or wet/dry knobs. I usually hate blend knobs, but for phasing and flanging bass, I think it would help a lot. My big problem with phasing is "Now you hear the bass, now you don't." But I remember in the 80's and 90's when I used effects, I'd go into ch 1 of my SVT clean and ch 2 dirty, and I'd put the phaser in ch 2 and just jack up the knobs so you could tell it's on, and then the lows didn't drop out.

    I don't think it sounds digital. I think they have the 4-Stage and 8-Stage mixed up on the toggle switch, though. It has a Mix (blend) knob which comes in handy.

    If you’re looking at a 90, what about a Phase 95? Small footprint, more tonal options, in your price.
