    hey TGP ppls,

    I am looking for a multi purpose analog phaser. Something that can get pretty close to a Mxr script 45 and script 90, and does the univibe thing at a pinch.

    I have looked at the keeley phase 24, but it gets mixed reviews.

    Anything else I should look at?

    Phase pistols are the most versatile.

    My HBE Psilocybe does a good Univibe with the shift switch, at least at Star Spangled speed
    I read somewhere it was based on the MXR Phase 100 but with extras. You see them pretty cheap sometimes too

    thanks everyone. I had a quick look and here are my initial thoughts:
    • Type 1 Field Phaser Pistol - great for killing Klingons, not so good for my pedal board
    • VFE Tractor Beam - looks like my best option
    • DOD 201 Reissue - only provides 2 stages.
    • HBE Psilocybe - looks interesting - but I am not sure it can do the phase 45 thing
    • Empress Phaser - too many knobs for me
    • Eqd grand orbiter v2 - I can't quite make heads or tails of this one. It seems to work very differently from the script phase 45 / 90..
    • Skreddy little miss sunshine - can't tweak the number of stages on this one

    Try to find a Maxon PH-350 Rotary Phaser. I bought one on Ebay a few weeks ago for $150.

    VFE and a F-Pedals PhazeVibe cover all my needs.

    Chase Bliss Wombtone Mk1 or 2 can do this wonderfully!
