REVIEW from Guitarist Magazine, Issue 339
by Trevor Curven (tested with guitar)
"From classic seventies phase sounds reminiscent of the legendary orange MXR boxes, through deeper eight-stage phasing, to swooshing sounds verging on flanging courtesy of the wide settings 18-stage phasing with differential modulation, the DPhaser covers a lot of ground, but always sounds classy, Score: 4/5".
