    So i'm looking into getting a phaser pedal, and there's 2 somewhat local to me that im interested in. One is the boss ph-3 phase shifter, and the other one is a TSW Battle Phaser.

    The folks who built the pedal are based in LI, NY. A guy's selling this for 120. What he told me was that the circuit in the Battle Phaser is the same circuit used in the youtube pedal demo below. He also says he thinks that the pedal itself is based off of the old vintage Ross phasers. I was just wondering your guy's opinions on the TSW phaser. i don't want it to completely suck out all of my lows (don't have much low end in my signal to begin with) and am looking for something different vs. a phase 90 or small stone. Another guy mentioned that when he ab'd the TSW and the script phase 90, he felt the TSW had more depth and definition.

    Otherwise, that ph-3 is 45 bucks LOL


    Here's a link to the TSW website for anyone interested

    the ph-3 is fun but usually gets drowned in a band mix

    Thanks for the input. I might just buy the ph3 and then next paycheck get that other one if its still available. I'm not getting the byoc however
