I've anyways wanted to like phaser too (I love outlaw era Waylon etc) but found the Phase 90 to generally be too much for my style of playing. I purchased a Phase 95 after that and usually keep it on the 45 Script setting, which is a lot mellower. At the other end of the phase spectrum, I picked up a DOD Phasor 201 on a whim last year when they were blowing them out, and it's simultaneously thick and chewy but also really musical and seems to not swamp the original signal as much. (Or something! I'm not sure how to describe it... Almost a Univibe texture...) Great pedal!
