Weird, odd, but somehow good
When I first got this phaser and put it in fx loop it pretty much sucked. Thin, more flangy than phasery sound made me throw it into drawer. I rediscovered it few months later simply by putting it in front of amp... jackpot!
PH-2 is somehow quite weird on clean channel - do not expect a great warmth and lushness that for example Phase 90 gives; it's more sterile and very tight and that makes PH-2 great for funky stuff. On dirt channel it beats all the phasers on the market - aggressive, punchy, and very distinct.
Since it has four knobs you will need to spend few minutes to dial into desired tone but that only makes it more tweakable so everyone will find something interesing here. Another two advantages: build like tank, dirt cheap (got mine for 20$).
Just a phase.
I got this item in a trade. I only got it because I'm a huge Mike Einziger fan and I know it's pretty essential to his sound. But It's a cool phaser. I don't really use phasers and I just have it, just to have it.
Very simple to use, and it has 2 different phase voices. I got it used (of course) and I must say I really liked the sound of it. It doesn't mess with the volume of your guitar (as the Phase 90, which add a little volume on the mid-high frequencies) and you have more control of the sound's shape. Spending some time with it, getting to know how to use all the 4 knobs, and you will be happy with it, for sure.
