Saturday - As typically happens, I got 2 phasers in the mail today...The Mad Professor Tiny Orange and the Cusack Tap-A-Phase. These 2 will be at each others throats for a few days to see who stays. As far as initial impressions, the MP is plug and play and sounds good, seems to be darker overall than the Cusack. The Cusack I'm going to have to read the manual and see what exactly the controls are. I'm already liking the tap tempo though. Definitely a lot of options with the knobs and toggles and waveforms. Needless to say, I haven't had any real time with either. Back to the phasing! Saturday - OK, played a for a few hours more tonight...I like them both and am trying to justify keeping both phasers. The Cusack is just full of neat things. I read the manual (twice) and have a grasp on the switches and the various modes. This thing is an amazing piece of pedal technology due to the fact that there are some many different functions of phase. I'm diggin' on those soft switches too. Hopefully more builders will be utilizing them! Very nice Mr. Cusack! Saturday - The MP is a tonal phase for sure. I like it for Waylon/Shooter type phasing and the voicing is its strong point. There are no bad settings on the Tiny Orange. Tomorrow I'll explore the funky side of the MP and see how it goes. Sunday - One thing that I'd change on the Cusack is where the toggles are located. They are too close to the in/out jacks. You can see it in the pic below. With my board, there is the potential to flip a toggle while stomping on the pedal due to the cables. UPDATE: The toggles are being moved when stepping on the pedal due to my cables. Contacted Cusack who suggested I use straight cables instead of 90's or find a new place to put them. Sunday -Spent some time this morning with the not-so-deep phasing side of the Tiny Orange. The mix at 12:00=no phasing. CCW is deep phasing and CW is lighter. I bumped up the speed and went CW for some underwatery shimmer. Very cool. Again, I can't stress the superb voicing of this pedal. The literature speaks of the phasing being tuned for guitar. Believe it! Sunday - I also tried dialing in a matching tone on the Cusack. These pedals can get very close to each other but the Cusack has so many more options. And it sounds good. I played with the braking feature on the Tap-A-Phase and that is nice. You can speed up or slow down just by holding in the tap-temp switch. I'm thinking about making a cheat sheet for the Cusack so I can dial in what I like quicker on the fly. Right now I have the instructions taped to the wall beside the board. I'm still amazed at all the features in this one pedal. The tempo light carries on when the pedal is in bypass. Very useful! Monday - Playing the Cusack with some dirt. Got it set for a cocked wah sound. I had to check to see if my wah was on! Screamer blues! The phaser has got to be one of the most underloved effects. It's a lot more versatile than I thought. A big part of that is the Cusack which has the ability to utilize the effect fully. And the dirt I'm using is an MP Sky Blue OD. The MP has a "smokey" tone too it. It would be an excellent choice for a more subtle phaser user. Not as many outer-reaches sounds. It sits nice in the frequency spectrum. It's bigger sounding than other phasers but not in an overpowering way. And again, tone is its strong suit.
