    Does any of you use the PT-909? The 3 knobs version?
    How does it sound? And can you connect the PT-909 to a normal 1spot?

    I've always described the PT-909's phase tones to be very lush and liquidy sounding.

    At the lower speed ranges it can be a very subtle phaser just lightly coloring your tone with phase, especially, with the feedback knob turned almost all the way down.

    The feedback knob really controls how much presence the phase effect has when your playing it. Turning it up enhances the amount of phase you hear in the signal.

    As you turn the speed and width up it can product a very lush, throbing phase effect all the way into a sea-sicky wobble.

    Here's a quick demo I did for you...hope it helps.

    I don't know about the power adapter question.

    And do you put your phaser pre or post distortion? I got it now and I really like it, it's very versitail! And it sounds great!

    I've always put it after the distortions...so I can phase the distorted tones...not distort the phased tones.

    OK, I haven't tried it after distortion because I like it before my distortion..
    By any chance do you know where to put my tremolo?;)
