Eddie Van Halen helped develop the Dunlop MXR EVH 90 Phase Shifter guitar effects pedal, giving amateur and professional players the ability to modulate their signals and get that rich vintage warbling heard in "Eruption."
A characteristic phase shifter sound with a hint of flanger, the EVH90 stompbox adds the right kind of swirl to your licks for a unique sonic experience. For added flexibility, the pedal includes an alternate phaser circuit you can access with the press of a button.
The MXR EVH Phase 90 comes with attractive red visuals with black and white linear details, reminiscent of Van Halen’s very own line of Frankenstrat custom shop guitars. At a glance, you can see the MXR EVH Phase 90 pedal is visually striking and intuitive.
The Speed knob controls the velocity of the phase shifting. At a low speed, the result is a psychedelic, slow-motion envelope that makes several bars of music come together beautifully. Turn it up all the way to the right to make every note vibrate with the phasing.
Play with the intermediate settings to find the right speed for your tempo and mood. Experiment with alternate techniques to find quirky, expressive sounds such as the whooshing style of palm muting at the beginning of Van Halen’s "Atomic Punk," which was recorded using this very same effect.
The unit has two sturdy switches. At the center, the footswitch lights a blue LED when stomped on, turning the EVH90 phaser on. Built for use and abuse, this is a stock part of MXR pedals, preferred by demanding players for their quality and reliability onstage.
The smaller Script switch alternates between block logo and script logo phase-shifting effects. The former is based on more recent versions of this effect, creating a clearer and brighter tone that goes well with distortion in modern rock tunes. The Script sound is characteristic of a vintage phaser, boasting the warmer acoustic vibes that marked the 70s.
Whether you are a fan of classic tunes or wish to experiment with new effects, this is a perfect addition to your gear. Used mostly by electric guitar players, many bass players have discovered the EVH Phase 90 adds a funky attitude to their playing, adding this unit to their modulation accessories.
