c1981 MXR Phase 90
Color: Orange * Condition: Good
Used MXR Phase 90 c1981. This pedal is in good condition, fully functional, cosmetically showing playing wear. This is a great sounding pedal.
The Phase 90, released in 1974, was the first pedal sold by MXR and helped launch the company. The original version had the MXR logo written in “script”. In 1977 MXR changed its logo to the current "block" logo. There were also some changes in the circuitry at that time. Production ceased when MXR went bankrupt in 1984. Jim Dunlap bought the MXR brand and brought the Phase 90 back into production.
This effect has found its way into many recordings, adding a shimmery velocity to lead passages or a more dramatic swoosh to muted strumming. This effect also works well with bass, keyboards and even vocals. Vary the speed from a subtle, long cycle to a fast, warble and myriad vintage vibrations in between.
There have been circuit revisions both by MXR and Jim Dunlop. Currently there are several versions available including new units that revisited the original circuit designs.
Own an early version of this classic pedal. Great sound, great price!
