OVERVIEW

This unit virtually launched the phase craze.

Not just for guitars; it works well with bass, keyboards, and even vocals. Vary the speed from a subtle, long cycle to a fast, watery warble with endless vintage vibrations in between. The MXR M-101 is powered by single 9V battery or Dunlop ECB-003 AC Adapter

It doesn't have much control for the phasing, but that is not bad news at all. It gives a lot of nice phasing great tones. If you want more control over the effect buy another one. Nevertheless, I think you should get another one only if your music is based on this effect, that way you can have more control of it. Otherwise, this is a wonderful machine. I love the way it sounds with my distortion. With the clean sound, just with a little of it, sounds incredible too, specially for those slow songs. Another turn on is the price; it is very economical. Like I said before in other reviews, you can't go wrong with MXR. Among other good brands like Mad Professor, Earth Quaker Devices and TC Electronics, this is one of the best

I love this pedal. The only reason why it gets a 5 for overall rating is because of an issue that this pedal has. I bought one of these a month ago and thought something was wrong with it so I sold it and bought another one about 2 weeks ago and it still has the same problem. If you use this pedal in a clean tone with Humbuckers it sounds distorted. If you run the pedal through overdirve or fuzz it sounds fantastic. The only way to get this pedal to sound good in a clean channel is to use Single Coil Pickups. Thankfully my guitar has Coil-Splitting so I waws unable to avoid the distortion. After doing some reserch I found out that this re-issue has a Low Input Threshold and because of that if you use Humbuckers the pedal sounds distorted. So beware of this if you are planning on purchasing this pedal and you only have humbuckers. But other than that flaw, I love this pedal. Sounds very organic and rich.
Only one knob. You only need one knob, thats the beauty of this pedal. It adjusts the speed only. This pedal does not need any other knobs, it is that easy.
I don't think that regular use as a studio musician or giging musician will break this pedal unless you abuse it. Built like a tank.
it is a great deal considering Boss pedals are more and they are not analog like this pedal it.

I bought this to add some spice to my solos and to nail Eddie's early sound. It does it perfect. I set the knob between 8 and 9 O'Clock and it is just what I need.

    Compact, affordable, simple to use and built like a tank. Most importantly - sounds great. I can't tell the difference between this and the EVH other than the paint-job and the price. I'm still very pleased with the original. It's the only one for me!

      Comments about MXR M-101 Phase 90 Pedal:

      I got this pedal to add texture to my sound. Now this isnt something you would want to use all the time...but it's surprising how often, at a low setting, you will use it. It adds flavor to a lead, and it adds "shimmy" to a rhythm. It's very similar to a flanger, but I find it to be more subtle, and useable. You can get that similar feel without it sounding so over the top. I highly reccomend this little pedal.

          Dead Simple, Classic Sound

          Comments about MXR M-101 Phase 90 Pedal:

          The Phase 90 has a classic sound, giving you a little bit of crunch along with the phaser effect; however, it is certainly a one trick pony. You can't adjust the balance of the phased sound with the original input signal, nor can you change the range of the frequency sweep. You get what you get and your only parameter to change is the speed sweep. Versatile? Not at all. But if you like the sound, this pedal is great. Want more options? Get the Phase 100!

            This pedal has a great, organic sound. You can use it for lots of genres; you can get leslie sound out of it, or classic Rock tones. Best of all is just extremely easy to use and dial in.

              Just getting familiar with this pedal. Does what I want it to do, fits on the pedalboard, and feels well-built. I have MXR pedals and they are good.

              Comments about MXR M-101 Phase 90 Pedal:

              The Phase 90 is a classic, plain and simple. I use mine on it's own, with distortion, with reverb, with chorus, everything. It is a very versatile pedal with excellent sound that mixes well with other effects. It is also durable. The thing feels like it was carved out of stone. I also love the simplicity of effects. 1 knob, that's all you need if you know what you're doing. I would suggest this pedal to anybody from pros to novices.

              Solid design, and very easy to use. Its extremely versatile in that you can go from a very subtle phase to flying through outer space with the turn of 1 knob. EVH was on to something when he added this back in the 80s!!
