    Here is the thing: I love the tone of the Moon Phaser Deluxe. But I'm planning on buying the Strymon Flint for my trem/reverb needs.
    I'm trying to minimalize my rig, to avoid tip-tap dancing and focus on playing.
    So the idea of having two trems on board feels a bit sub-optimal..

    I'm not really into getting weird/crazy sounds generally. So my rig would be more on getting few inspiring tones. mainly funk, prog rock hard-rock, jazz, blues.

    Suggestions?
    Thanks!!

    You just just leave it in the phase settings and not in the tremophase. It's one of the best phasers I've owned.

    Yeah I really liked the sound when I tried it, how do you find the tremolo alone on the Moon Phaser?
    I mainly use the Reverb on the Flint anyway.

    The trem on the moon phaser is not a real standalone trem--it combines trem and phase. Honestly you would never use it for real trem purposes over a dedicated trem pedal--it can't compete. it's a darn good phaser though and can get vibelike.

    Mine has three phaser settings, two tremophase settings and one tremolo setting.

    Thanks guys for your reply!

    Ok I'm about to buy a used one for a fairly good price. Only thing is, what do you think of having a dry/wet control knob on a phaser? Do you think it's useful or I can just work on the speed/depth to make it more subtle when needed? I know the DMP has an internal control, which is not actually a blend control.. would it help in case?

    Another question is whether all modes on the DMP are actually good for different purpose or kinda redundant to you..?
