    So am I correct in assuming the BOSS PH-2 Super Phaser is a 10 Stage Phaser? I was wondering if there are any similar pedals out there?

    As near gear comes out I think we all ask ourselves, "Is there a better way to do this?" and in the case of my recently sold vintage small stone, YES! The Whetstone from Blackout Effectors is like they took a small stone and made every aspect tweakable. Equally good sound quality.

    I am looking for something like that to replace my BOSS PH-2 Super Phaser (1986 - Japan) if it exists. It is like my old boss pedal. Just nothing sounds like it with that SUPER deep woosh like my solo just went through a long tube, LOL. Cheers.

    I think the Maxon PT-9 is a 10-stage phaser - I think the effect itself runs on the subtle side so not sure how this compares with the PH-2.

    I love the 10 stage mode on the PH-2. I actually bought mine because I thought it sounded closest to the rare Schulte Compact Phasing A which is an 8 stage phaser. There is a clone available now by mode machines but the price is a bit scary... Is the ultimate for that sound you describe though.
