    I might be wrong, but I think you're thinking of the Phase 90. the 45 is a more subtle 2-stage phaser.

    Isn't the Nebula in the vein of the Phase 45?

    That is what I was thinking. Haven't played one, but I have read that in reviews.

    yeah, shoulda done a search first. nebula looks like the ticket. be nice to have a depth knob like the retro-sonic though. the Diamond does it as well, but it's a bit over the top for my needs.

    Yeah, it's a copy of one of the old Digitech phasers, which was basically a Phase 45. I have a nebula, sounds great, priced right too.

    +1 on Nebula. Good pedal, sounds like a phase 45. I think some of those BYOC phasers are switchable between 45 and 90.

    Another fan of the Nebula here - a great little phaser.

    it's actually based on the DOD 201, which was based on the phase 45. They are extreemly similar, but i seem to remember the 45 being a bit noisier... although i must admit the last time i played one was probably 15 years ago.

    I bought a Nebula to replace the 45 I foolishly let go. I've been very happy with it.

    Wouldn't really be a Phase 45 clone if it had more than one knob.
    I can tell you, because I have one, it doesn't need more than one knob. It is voiced perfectly. Fantastic little pedal.

    Nebula is awesome ... one knob is all you need.

    It does have an internal trim pot, but I changed it once and it took forever to get it back to a usable setting.
