I played several phasers that were available to me: Boss PH-3, Big Joe Phaser (one with the picture of Big Joe,) and this Phase 100. They all did the job but I preferred the sound of the MXR, seemed warmer(?) than the others. It has certainly got some weight to it. I haven't really had much time yet to try it out with the board, but I think its going to do just fine. Looking forward to what kinds of sounds I come up with using it.
