OVERVIEW

The latest incarnation of one of the first phasers to ever hit the market.

One of the first phaser effect pedals ever made, the original DOD Phasor 201, blazed the trail for all phaser pedals after it. The new DOD Phasor 201 (2013) brings the classic analog phaser effect driven by 40+ years of tone-creating experience. The new 2013 DOD Phasor 201 is better than ever before, with true bypass, a crisp blue LED indicator, and modern 9V DC power supply input. Redesigned with a lighter aluminum chassis, sleek blue metallic flake and flat black matte bottom paint job, the 2013 DOD Phasor 201 pedal is a refined take on classic phasing effects, with an incredible new look.

The operation of the 2013 DOD Phasor 201 is pure simplicity. Like the original, the Speed knob controls the depth and speed of the phasing effect, with great tone at any range. True bypass allows your guitar tone to remain pristine even when the DOD Phasor 201 (2013) is off. This is a big difference from the original which would color your bypassed tone. The modern 9V DC power supply input make the pedal more pedal board friendly.

FEATURES
  • Legendary analog phaser tone
  • True-bypass
  • 9V DC power supply input
  • Crisp blue status LED

I bought this last week when it was on the Stupid Deal of the Day, so needless to say it was very convenient. Since there isn't a volume knob, the phaser perfectly balances out with the amp's volume. The effect is very subtle but also very noticeable at the same and I absolutely love it. I play a lot Incubus, which consists of a lot of phaser, flanger, distortion, etc so I am very much in love with this pedal as well as DOD in general. With that said, I bought myself a DOD Overdrive pedal. Back on the subject, I strongly recommend this pedal and if you have the money for it, then you should purchase it, but if Musician's Friend puts it back as the Stupid Deal of the Day, it's a no-brainer. Also delivered to me within 2-3 business days. Great transaction from both DOD and Musician's Friend.

Pros:
- This phasor sounds quite good. It produces nice chewy phasey goodness, but is still warm and mellow enough that it never wears out its welcome. It also pairs well with fuzz and overdrive, and has a perfectly set level. A lot of phasors tend to really take over your sound when you switch them on, and can sound fake, or just not really integrated into your core guitar sound. This one melds nicely with the sound you already have.

- The range of the speed knob is good enough for most applications, although I sometimes wish it could go a little bit slower.

- For a one knob pedal, the depth is set nicely. You definitely will know it's there, but it does not get out of hand.

Cons:
- The enclosure is bigger than you expect. It is not MXR box sized, but about 1/4"-1/2" larger on all sides (and is also deeper/higher).

- Within a week of buying this, the output jack nut fell off. A quick inspections shows that the nut is plastic, and had already stripped. It is clear from the build quality that this will break again soon even if I got a replacement. I can jam it back on and it will still work, but all in all this is extremely lame. For the price I could definitely find a better quality phasor (e.g. the several options from EHX).

Bottom line: Unless you absolutely have to have the DOD 201 sound, I would look elsewhere.

    Comments about DOD Phasor 201 Analog Phaser/Pitch Shifter Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I don't like phasers, but this is different. It's subtle like a rotating speaker on a Leslie. Go listen to Bridge of Signs by Robin Trower. It's a lot like that. Trower isn't using this pedal but that is what this pedal sounds like.

                Got this on the SDD, and at that price, you can't beat it. One knob for speed, no wet/dry blend, or anything complicating the effect. Really it's all I need for what I play. MXR has better options, and there certainly are better phasors out there, but for the money, this is just what the doctor ordered.

                        In a world where some pedals have many knobs, some even surrounded by other knobs- not to mention a couple of extra 3 way switches here or there, it is nice to go back to the simplicity of one knob. Yep the 201 has just one knob and you turn it for as much effect as you need. Good clean useful phase-y sounds with a vintage vibe. Pair it with a little overdrive and throw on a little analog type reverb and you have your self a nice fat chewy groovy sound. Life does not get easier.
