    I was holding out for a '74 Script Reissue when a mint EVH Phase 90 fell into my lap for really cheap. I have to say other than the paint job I REALLY like this pedal. The Script/Block button reall makes a difference in the tone and compared to my Ibanez PT-9 this thing drips juicy phase goodness. Anyone else using the EVH model over the others? and how does it sound compared to the real vintage MXR?

    i must have had a lemon because the loss of signal and tone-suck rendered it unusable for me.

    I had one but it got knocked off my board by the retro-sonic phaser. better sound and true-bypass. The EVH was good while it lasted though.

    I think there might have been a few. I had one that sucked tone horribly when off. I wrote the pedal off but got another on a trade deal. Suprisingly this one sucked tone no worse than a Boss pedal and sounded pretty darn good. I stuck it in a looper and I'm happy. Small footprint, easy to use, available, sounds good. Its like a mantra for me.:AOK

    I remember a thread comparing the new 74 reissue, the previous reissue, the regular version and the EVH. Most people didn't like the EVH and the regular, if I remember right - and thought the 74 was really good.

    I own both.....they sound VERY similar.....the 74 reissue sounds a bit more organic so thats the one on my board....

    also the evh paint job drove me nuts.....

    I could live happily with the evh one if i had to though....

    I've owned all kinds of phasers. Old ones, boutique ones, regular old phasers and I'm quite satisfied w/ my EVH Phase 90. Hate the 'paint job' but the tone works for me. I've had it since they first came out and haven't had a single issue with it.
