    Does anyone know what the difference is, if any, between the MXR Phase 90 (block or script) and the MXR Zakk Wilde Phaser, besides the price tag and the logo?

    I've heard that maybe the ZW is deeper?

    Wilde also has a signature overdrive and signature analog chorus. They all sound like stock pedals. I'm guessing all MXR did was to pay him some $$$ to put his name on their stock pedals and maybe better appeal to his fan base.

    The Wilde Crybaby is definitely voiced lower than the stock Crybaby, though.

    Ah...it's all marketing, isn't it! :twisted:

    ZW is a huge endorsement whore. He'd slap his name and bulls eye graphic on the end of a condom if they'd offer him a little money.
