My father has let me commandeer his Ibanez Phaser (this one) and it's pretty useful. When used for leads it cuts through the mix fantastically - perhaps even a little too high-mid heavy - and when used for atmosphere it sounds great coupled with either way too much distortion or no distortion. My only problem with it is that the noise floor is annoyingly high when using it for cleans.
