Brand new from Tim at Retro-Sonic. You're looking at one professional piece. Wow! Super nice tones in there. The depth knob allows the player to back off the overall effect, adding just a modicum of phase or fully drenching the signal as needed. The depth knob is invaluable for running this in series with other effects. I tried this and a vibe, a chorus, a wah.... twas a dream.

At first I wasn't sure what to do with the level; I just left it fully ON. But after a while, especially with a big fuzz signal or OD, I found that cutting the level provided a nice break. It took the solo down to a nice reflective moment, while keeping it interesting via the phased signal. Great addition!

The speed is sensitive and provides a usable range. The faster speeds are tremolo-esque, but not entirely. The oscillations still retain the phase effect. There are other phasers of this size that stop shy of a cozy, zippy speed. Not this one.

Lastly, there's no loss of volume when turning it on. In fact, it may even become a wee-bit louder with the level pegged, but I haven't experimented enough to say for certain.

This is truly a remarkably clean, tone-producing tool. A great addition to the Retro-Sonic line.

(I hear there's an echo coming, too....)

What kind of power adapter does it use?

Do you know what circuit it's based on? EHX, MXR, BOSS?

Hi,

The phaser is built to script phase 90 specs with the addition of depth and level controls. It's true bypass of course, and uses standard 9 volt supply.

The depth control simply affects the intensity of the effect (think of it as going from a phase 20 to phase 90). I had read several comments about volume boost from the circuit and decided the level control would be usefull to some folks ( the level was a well-liked feature on the chorus).

I have some sample prototypes made and I'm looking to have a production run started shortly as soon as I figure out my pricing.
If you have specific questions you can email me at: info@retro-sonic.com

Cheers,
Tim

It just keeps getting oozier and oozier every time I play it. F. What a sound. I can't decide if it's radical or mellow, soporific or concupiscent.
