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.
