Phase 90 script logo reissue

MXR recently released a copy of their “script logo” Phase 90. This new version is far more accurate to the original than the standard Phase 90. This includes the six opamps instead of two or three in the reissues, full size potentiometer, jacks not mounted directly to the circuit board, and the infamous MXR foam cradle holding the circuit board in place. MXR stuck to the vintage theme and left out true bypass, an LED, and even a DC adapter jack! This seems like a great way for them to cut costs and cash in on the vintage mojo. While I had the pedal to correct these grievances the owner also requested an intensity control, pulsing LED, and Phase 45/90 toggle switch in addition. The end result is a very versatile phaser that still offers 100% of the original tone. Now if only MXR will stop using that awful foam to support the circuit board….

    Yeah, I can’t believe that that foam is ESD safe. Should have used standoffs…;-)
