Clone of the Phase 45 with some extra tweaks and features.
Though a lot less in-your-face than the 4-stage Phase 90, this is far from a weak effect. Pleasant swirls abound. You won't get full-on psychedelic madness but there's plenty of swooshy phase going on.
The board has a few extras over the standard one-knob pedal (though sweet and simple is the favoured configuration at FuzzDog HQ), drawn up by JC Maillet back in 2003:
- Optional Mix control to vary the sound between phase and a kind of pitch-shifting vibrato
- Pseudo Univibe mode switch. No, it isn't a univibe but it has a similar.... vibe!
- Optional external pot for the bias control, rather than an internal trimmer. Why? well, you may want to tweak it slightly when selecting between Phase and Vibe modes. Up to you.
Kit includes the all-important matched FETs.
Designed for board-mounted vertical-pin pots which have round shafts - take that into account when ordering knobs. You can wire up 'normal' pots if you prefer - those will have splined shafts. The Univibe mode switch is also board mounted.
The box layout images shown indicate the position of the different controls but don't show all the different combinations available. Box will be drilled to match your chosen options.
Note: the flashing bypass indicator LED mod is not compatible with the OptoPuss bypass system.
Partial kit: PCB, all board-mounted components, pots.
Full kit: As above, plus footswitch and appropriate daughterboard/components for your selected bypass type (see Downloads section for details of those), jack sockets, DC socket, battery snap, hook-up wire, LED.
Enclosure (pre-drilled) is only available with full kits, and will not take a battery. Knobs are not included.
PCB size: 50 x 46mm
