Best Vintage Phase 100 substitute in a phase 90 sized pedal

Postby toddgardn » Sat Dec 02, 2017 1:23 pm

I have a pedal board setup that is absolutely perfect for a variety of reasons, and I only have room for a Phaser pedal the size of a phase 90. I have a modern phase 90 pedal that I do not quite like. I'm looking for opinions/help on finding the best phaser pedal that is closest to a vintage phase 100, but in a smaller pedal housing. Thanks greatly! Todd

I like the Phase Royal from BYOC. Gets a variety of classic tones that you get pretty darn close to the Phase 100 script: https://buildyourownclone.com/products/phase-royal

Plus I like that you can control the mix between dry and effect signal so you can get a nice balance which you can't control with the Phase 100.

did not want to like the mini MXR phaser - but its awesome. Zach from JGB got me turned on to it, really great. Ive had about a dozen or so phasers over the years, and I'd argue this little orange bastard sounds better than all of them. Really great leslie esc subtle tones in there also - give er a shot

Interesting. I built that one and so far have found it pretty "limited"? Very touchy sweet spot on the trim pot. BYOC themselves say that it's not one of their better efforts. Currently out of stock.

It's all in the dry/effect balance and the calibration of the sweep. I calibrated with my OD1 on to really hear the phase effect. Mind you I also have a phase 100 but I happen to like the phase Royal. But it's out of stock. Their phase 100 clone is up for sale on reverb haven't heard it: https://reverb.com/item/7353797-byoc-phase-100-clone-bumblebee-black-yellow

This is where I'd go, or the EVH with the Script/Block mode switch. Script mode is night and day better than Block mode, you get a nice clean sweep instead of the weird shelving of the block mode.

Anyone know the difference between the mini mxr which has an option for 90 and script vs. the true script 90 reissue? Or possibly tried both. I have the block 100 and am looking to upgrade for sure.
