The Phaser is almost as old as stompboxes themselves. The first one was the Phase 90, and when that came out, the year was 1974 and there was one control: Speed. 40 years later, Joel Korte of Chase Bliss Audio released the Wombtone, the culmination of 40 years worth of phaser research. Nothing before it had been so advanced and so wonderful sounding.
And now, the bar has been raised, again. The Wombtone MKII is now THE most feature-laden phaser available, with the warm sound to back it up.
For starters, the 16 DIP switches that were previously available on the bottom of the pedal are now located on the rear panel. This allows users to adjust the parameters on the fly, which opens up the pedal even more.
Now, there’s a wet/dry Mix knob that governs the amount of dry signal present in the overall effect. This allows players to fully tailor the effect to their individual needs, as some players might want only a subtle phase, like the MXR Phase 45, or some serious ooey-gooiness like the Small Stone.
Of course, all the same stunning versatility of the MKI is still there—the unique ModuShape control that allows players to fully customize the modulation waveform. There’s also tap tempo with selectable subdivisions, as well as presets. And the package is so small, that there’s no reason NOT to buy this pedal—it’s quite simply the ultimate phaser pedal on the market.
