    90s at every turn, but a 100 in the wild has been a rare occurrence for me. Weird...

    Here’s a sighting!

    Maybe it’s because Eddie didn’t use one?

    One more knob has to be one better, right?

    If you just keep playing it fixes that problem...

    I did notice it gets kind of feedbacky when it swoosh’s into the high frequency on the treble pickup

    Because they're too subtle. I have a DOD 201 and you can barely hear it working. Good/great sound for recording, but in live use it purty much disappears. I like a phaser to have at least 4 stages.

    Why do they have 45,90,100?

    Should it not have been 45,90,180?

    It's the pedal used for "Shattered"
    Ronnie used the 90, Keith the 100

    Yep. Heard that on the radio in the car today and that's what prompted my inquiry.

    Think I might sell my 201 and 90 and get one these here 100s. :cool:

    100 may be because it's a 10-stage phaser...dunno for sure.

    I tried one for a while, could not bond with it. The whirlwind orange box was pure joy to me and if ever I move away from my Terraform back to individual modulation pedals, the Whirlwind will be the phaser, hands down.

    I think there is something about the 100 that is different enough from what people are used to hearing that it just doesn't do it for them.

    Does Whirlwind make a version of the 100, as well as the 90?

    Man, I love my 201. One of the most musical phasers I own. So lush without getting over the top!

    I know, but it just cuts so much highs, IME.

    I tried a phase 360 but just ended up back where I started from.

    I have one. It sounds great. Very transparent.
