This Moonphaser pedal draws its inspiration and tonal qualities from the magical phaser designs of the seventies like the Mu-Tron and arguably one of the most sought after, the Maestro MP1.
The Moonphaser is dripping with authentic seventies character, although it's housed in a smaller more pedalboard-friendly enclosure.
The very best NOS (new old stock) components have been paired with modern top-quality capacitors and low-noise metal film resistors. This means that the problems of old, like inconsistent quality and tone, should be consigned to history.
We get two simple controls: speed controls the modulation rate between one phase cycle every eight seconds right up to six cycles per second, and depth.
The effect is switched in and out by a true-bypass 3PDT footswitch and housed in a lovely Hammond enclosure with retro moon-phase graphics, blue LEDs and brushed aluminium knobs.
Here are three sound clips of the Moonphaser in action:
Sweet and chewy is the order of the day. With the speed and depth at two o'clock it's perfect for those big clean-funk grooves of the 1970s.
The Moonphaser's amazing high-end clarity supplies lashings of lush, liquid phase. Even with the depth control maxed out your guitar tone will retain all of its character and sparkle.
Stick a great smooth-sounding overdrive pedal in the mix and you will experience incredibly sweet gain phasing. Careful though, the Moonphaser won't hide any top-end shrillness.
If you're looking for that vintage, funk/rock phase-sound there is simply nothing else on the market that matches up.
