    Here are a couple of demos for the Tone Factor, Nebula phaser.

    Although it might look simular to our old orange friend, the Nebula is definately not a Phase90 clone. While the Phase-90 has a chewy mid peak, the Nebula sits more in the high-end adding a liquidy texture and clarity to your tone.

    Between the Huckleberry, the 442 filter, and now the Nebula, Brad is really on a roll with his Tone Factor pedals.

    I'd like to say that most pedal demos leave a lot to be desired to me. However, the ones you've done for the Tone Factor pedals are right on! You demonstrate the tone uneffected and then the various tones from the effect. Variation tells a lot more about a pedal than a quick 10 second demo of something that doesn't even let you hear the tone before the effect. Great job!

    Great clips as usual John. It is definitely more along the lines of the Phase 45 which is what I think Brad was shooting for. Kinda Univibey and the dirty clip is reminiscent of Have A Cigar. Very nice and great looking pedal too.

    As a previous owner of Phase 45, from what I hear in the video...I like this better than the 45.

    I curse Brad and John as I had not anticipated ever wanting to swap my vintage 90 for anything else. I may be pulling my 90 off and putting in the "studio box" and dropping a Neb on board.

    grrrr, unexpected gear changes.

    I liked what I heard so much that I just ordered one. I dig simple, one knob one switch. I'm looking forward to my nebula pedal.

    John has a knack for making all pedals sound appealing!

    Unkleslam, I assume you are the evil genius that made this pedal? Is it a clone of the phase 45, 90, or an original design? Is there a difference? How quick do yall get stuff to my porch here in Texas? Best regards.

    I'm just the guy behind the desk. :) The circuit is loosely based on the Phase 45/ DOD 201 circuit. IMO, it's a little more pronounced than most of these that I've tried, but not as pronounced as the Phase 90. It's two stages like the 45, so it will naturally be more subtle/vibey than a 4 stage.

    If they were in stock they would be to you in two days. As of the moment we're running behind on pretty much all of the Custom Shop stuff. The good news is I'm expecting to have some Nebulas going out either tomorrow or the next day.

    I got my nebula in the mail today and put it right beside my deja vibe. I'm very impressed with the build quality, quick delivery and TONE. I am one of the few that has experienced bass loss with a vibe. I do not get that with the nebula. This phaser is the best uni vibe I ever had! Simply KILLER!! I have been watching some of the videos of that dude that did the demo. He's a wonderful talent. I'd like to hear a full song of his original stuff. Any how two enthusiastic thumbs up for the tone factor nebula!!

    Not that he wasn't before... the Hellbilly, Hellbaby and Squeeze Factor are all great, too! The clips are great.... I'm most likely all set with envelope filter and phaser and get a good fuzzy sound from the Hellbilly, but I'd love to mess around with the new TF releases sometime just the same...
