Another Boss Success

I recently purchased the PH-3 to replace my 1970's vintage SmallStone phase shifter--which finally phaded away after almost 40 years of use. I was a little concerned that I wouldn't be able to produce the organic sound of the older EH unit, but I have replaced almost all of my effects with the Boss units in this series (including overdrive/distortion, compressor sustainer and delay) so I decided to keep it in the family. What a great decision! I can absolutely reproduce the effect of the vintage SmallStone, and with the additional stage settings I can do so much more. OK, some of the effects are so over the top I probably wouldn't ever use them, but, hey, they are great to experiment with. Quiet in operation, no switching noise, intuitive to use, and solidly built. This will in all likelihood the last phase shifter I will ever buy, if it turns out to be as reliable as my old SmallStone. Highly recommended.

Really Nice

This pedal is great... if you know how to use it. This pedal took me a while to figure out. The regular phasing sounds are pretty good but what really sells this pedal is the fall, rise, and step modes. With the fall mode your sound continually drops which I love in certain songs. The rise mode is the opposite, it makes your sound continually rise, and the step mode is more for techno but it is sure fun to play around with. Overall I love this pedal but it is way over priced. I bought this from a friend but if you can find it used for cheaper (which you can) it is a good buy. The reason this pedal did not get 5 stars is because of the ease of use issue and the price.
