    Man,what a great pedal is that?



    Somehow soundwise a mixture of an univibe,wah,vibrato,leslie...but in fact its the legendary phase 90 in a wah casing...Hendrix,VH,Pink Floyd in one box!

    mine has a unity gain mod, so the annoying boost function is disabled.

    On the curcuit board are two trimpots, but I dont know what their function is InkedIMG_1406_LI.jpg
    there are also two trimpots at the side... for boost and fx level

    does sombody has any idea?

    thanks
    Olly

    Is this a new pedal? I haven't seen these before and really didn't need to see this.
    I have bills to pay.:cry:
    The speed control seems a little random and on lower speeds it's throb is a little lacking.
    Hard to tell if it's just the way the guy is using it.

    The bottom trim pot in the photo adjusts how fast the switchless on/off engages. I wouldnt mess with the top one, it probably adjusts the bias of the transistors? Can you tell me what the 'unity gain mod' is on yours?
