Roland Jet Phaser AP-7

This has been an on going project which I think finally came to an end. It was a distortion/phase pedal but you couldn’t select the effects separately. I added the center switch to control the phaser separate from the distortion. I converted each effect to true bypass and added LEDs. The far right footswitch ramps up or down the rate of the phaser. It’s a great idea but difficult to follow when using live. I installed a white LED that pulses the rate of the phaser for a visual indication. This pedal runs off of two 9V batteries for a +/- setup and had no AC adapter jack. I installed a negative voltage circuit so it can run off of a single battery and then installed a standard 2.1mm barrel jack to be used with any standard power supply. It was a large investment of time but the modifications make it practical for live use.

One of the most common questions is what actually makes it onto my pedalboard from the massive amount of pedals I’ve owned over the years. Here’s a current snapshot of my rig- the board on the left is mainly for practice, the right is my main rig for shows:

1. Vox wah – vocal mod, midrange, California mod, Fasel inductor, true bypass
2. MXR dyna comp- dying battery mod, hi-fi mod
3. EHX Big Muff based fuzz- Body knob, clarity mod, fat switch
4. Boss RC-20XL looper with 2 button phrase select switch
5. Fender PT-100 pedal tuner with true bypass (I prefer it over the Boss TU-2)
6. Right switch = momentary mute / tap tempo for DD-5;
Left switch = volume cut circuit (The Scalpel)
7. Ibanez Tubescreamer based overdrive
8. 8-bit Fuzz
9. Ibanez AD-9 analog delay
10. Boss DD-5 with high cut and reverse kill mods
11. Channel switcher for reverb / tremolo on my amp
