"Trower’s hottest rig blasted his array of Strats through a pair of 100-watt Marshall JMP-100 Mark II heads feeding two 1960-B 4x12 cabs and had an impressive effects chain on the floor: custom preamp and clean booster pedals, a Dan Armstrong Red Ranger treble booster, a Tychobrahe wah-wah, an octave/fuzz Fender Blender, a Uni-Vibe chorus/vibrato, Mutron II phase shifter, and two Electro-Harmonix Electric Mistresses."more
"After the delay is the Mu-Tron Phasor II. That’s the mother of all phasers - all the others seem one-dimensional to me. It’s the better half of the Mu-Tron Bi-Phase, which is a must for home-studio filter nerds! I’ve got one of those, too. You can hear it all over every record since [2004’s] The Eye Of Every Storm. There are entire parts where I play one note over two minutes using this phaser at a slow speed because I can disappear in it; it’s the perfect sweep. It’s hard to find and really expensive - I’ve got three and only one sounds right. That’s the one that goes out!"more
great 70s phasing effect... tone/volume sucker in bypass. Effect has a level drop when put in a true bypass loop, not unlike the 70s small stone I used to own. I love mutron's modulation effects. I used to have their ultra rare flanger with the wah-type treadle on loan from this junky dude but eventually I had to give it back. Its a bummer. That was a nice flanger. Same problem as the phasor II with the tone sucking and level dropping, but still. Nothing sounds like Mutron gear. I use this when I'm recording more then 80 smallstone or mxr phasers. It sounds better for most things I want to do. There's a biphase setting on all the line6 gear and that gets close if you set it right but the biphase is obviously going to be more extreme at most settings, its a crazy effect. But yeah, for recording I ue this real deal guy for a lot of shiznit. I've had it a long time. Got it around 2001 I think? Right after I got my 70s small stone off my buddy in exchange for my vox wah wah.
