Phasing, the Way It Was Meant to Be

The EarthQuaker Devices Grand Orbiter 4-stage phaser pedal serves up a full palette of phasing grooviness that's perfect for guitar - or anything else you'd like to enhance with this classic '70s effect. Grand Orbiter's OTA-based circuit is augmented with a 3-way switch that lets you select between modulation ranges: Rate 1 is slow sweep mode; Rate 2 kills the LFO, letting you use Grand Orbiter as a fixed resonant filter; Rate 3 is fast sweep mode. Rate and Depth knobs complete the control set. At Sweetwater, we've played through quite a few phaser pedals, and EarthQuaker Devices Grand Orbiter V2 delivers the goods.

Explicit control over your phasing effects

Grand Orbiter's circuitry is based around the operational transconductance amplifier, an ultra-stable device considered in electronic engineering circles to be an ideal transistor. EarthQuaker built the circuit with a smart set of controls that give you the ability to craft and fine-tune the exact effect you're after. The Rate control adjusts the speed of the LFO (the flashing LED gives you a visual indicator, even with the effect bypassed). The Depth control blends the wet signal in with the dry, effectively controlling the intensity of the effect. Grand Orbiter's Sweep control sets the peak frequency of the phased signal: full clockwise, the sweep is vibrant and intense; turning the dial counterclockwise gives you a darker, more laid-back sound. The Resonance knob serves up a broad regeneration palette; at higher settings it delivers a more resonant tone. The Phase/Vibrato switch even lets you use Grand Orbiter as a true-pitch vibrato. In Vibrato mode, the dry signal is killed, and the Depth control functions as a volume control.

Excellent for bass!!

This is an amazing sounding phaser! I had purchased an MXR Phase 100 and it sounded nice but degraded my signal and couldn't hold on to the low end. This pedal takes care of both of these issues and actually sounds great after fuzzes. The Vibrato mode is great too! I love how I am able to tailor how subtle or how intense I want my phaser to sound. Go from vintage phasing to modern warble and anywhere in between! The speed control can go ridiculously slow to crazy fast (reminiscent of a hard cut tremolo). Beautiful in every way! BUY IT! Thank you so much, Chris Sanders, for being helpful and reliable with advice pertaining to gear I have purchased! Class act sales engineer!

Noice

Great phaser, one of the best. I'd give it 5 but feel other phasers still offer their own style and character so there is room for others.
