I have been a huge fan of MXR’s Phase 90 for years. This pedal had been on my pedalboard since the early 90’s and I never thought I would use any other phaser until I got a Phase 100. Though I always loved the sound of the Phase 90 I always wanted the added options of the the Phase 100. Well here comes MXR with a new phaser that has even more options than the Phase 100 and they are calling it the Phase 99! It is basically combining two phase circuits into a single Phase 90-sized housing!
The MXR Phase 99 has separate rate controls for each circuit that allow you to create intense complex phasing, and a Vintage switch toggles between modern and vintage style phasing. Also, the Phase 99 features a P/S switch to toggle signal flow between the circuits from series to parallel, and a Sync switch to synchronize the rate of each phase circuit. Just watch this video I shot for it and listen to the wild phasing I get going with this pedal. Having been a player that never used two phasers at once, I was pretty blown away with the sounds I was getting and I now have to retire my Phase 100’s for the Phase 99!
