The Tone City Summer Orange Phaser pedal is an incredible recreation of your favourite orange phaser. Small enough fit onto any pedalboard this pedal does not lack any features nor does it sound any worse than a full sized pedal. If you are looking for a cost effective way to enhance the range of sounds on your pedalboard this is an amazing choice.
Simple but Versatile
Great for funk, soul and even rock phaser is an effect that is incredibly popular for sweet rhythm licks. Youc an easily cover all of these styles with this pedal with the large rate control setting the speed while the smaller feedback and depth controls let you mould the phase effect and how it works with your guitar so it can sit well in a mix.
Small and Portable
All Tone City pedals are built into a micro pedal format which not only helps keep your pedalboards size down but it also keeps your wallet full thanks to their amazingly low price. But don't worry you don't lose any quality when going down to this small size. All of the controls are all still high quality components and they all have true bypass switching to make sure your signal stays as clean as possible.
Specifications: Input Impendence: 500k Output Impendence: 10k Current: 15mA Power Supply: DC 9V adapter, Polarity Reversal True Bypass 2 Year Replacement Warranty
This pedal is great for the money but it definitely isn't likely to be a permanent fixture on a board if you want clean phaser sounds.
Positives: A positive is the range of sounds you can get from it. As well as the regular phaser sound, you can turn the rate anti-clockwise and have a range of mid heavy filter tones by manipulating the depth and feedback controls. In addition when the controls are in good positions it can sound very nice.
Negatives: There are however tangible negatives. One is the frequencies the pedal seems to focus on. It is largely focused, from what I can hear on treble and high mid frequencies making it difficult to make it work with some of my pedals. In addition, the pedal is very temperamental, meaning that one sound is often achievable only once with the controls set a certain way.
Overall I would say get it if you want an introduction to phaser or something a bit gritty and characterful but if you want something reliable I would say go for a Phase 90 or an EHX Small Stone.
