    I'm in the market for an inexpensive phaser. The Joyo Vintage Orange, I think it's called, first got my attention, but they are hard to find. Then I noticed the Orange Phaser by Mooer, which has the added bonus of being mini format.

    Anybody compared these? What are your thoughts? Also, is the Harley Benton model the Joyo in a different box?

    Thanks folks.

    The HB is the Joyo with a bizzare charging horseback lancer picture. It's a good phaser. I haven't tried the Mooer.

    I have the Joyo Vintage Phase, I really like it. It is well built. Its a bigger box than the MXR Phase 90. Sounds similar to the Phase 90. I have not tried the Mooer so can't compare. I like Mooer products though, I'm curious to know how the mini sounds

    I can vouch for the Mooer. I have one and dig it. True Bypass, has a vintage/modern switch which I think changes it from "script to block " MXR tone.

    I have the MXR Phase 95-- also in a mini enclosure. For not much more, you can pick one of these up on Reverb.

    I have the Joyo and it's a great phaser pedal. I use it sparingly, but it's subtle and has held up.

    Above would be my first response, but I didn't want to or couldn't go the above route I would definitely go with the Mooer. I think their mini phaser is very good, as is all of their pedals.

    Thanks for all the feedback. Seems like they all have good reputations.

    Today I saw the Garagetone Oil Can. Anybody know it?

    I got my used Mooer for $30 delivered via Reverb com. And I dig the black chickenhead knob!

    Phase 95 has been around long enough to get a used one. It’s a cool little pedal that will basically cover all the low stage stuff. You also need to get a six or more stage phaser for Some Girls Stones and some Jerry.

    MXR Phase 95, hands down. Four times the phaser in half the space.

    I ordered the kokko. I'm impressed with their drive so thought I'd give it a try. The Donner was a bust

    I will try one out. Thanks. I have to say I prefer the more subtle effect of the mooer I've heard in videos, but I don't have much experience with phaser, and my preferences could change quickly.
