Even while this may not be my favorite phaser in terms of sound quality (there's the one by Empress for that instance) I choose it for its speed's ramping function to achieve the peculiar expressiveness it brings to the game –I think that this is the only phaser pedal that lets you set that parameter (unlike Dedalo's MOD-5 which just offers a fixed acceleration, not to mention Cusack's Tap-A-Phase which alternates between brake and acceleration each time you hold its tap button).
This pedal sounds great. I love the fast and slow switch that allows you change between two modulation speeds. The Ramp knob lets you increase the amount of time it takes to gradually change between the two speeds. I only wish it had a wet/dry mix knob.
