MXR EVH Phase 90

Phaser Effects UnitThe MXR EVH Phase 90 can be heard in the classic Van Halen guitar style. This is how Eddie Van Halen "spiced up" his legendary Lead sound, especially on the early records. This can clearly be heard in his parade solo on "eruption".

There is, of course, only one control with which the speed of the phasing can be adjusted, everything else is set so that a really pleasant, never too intrusive effect can be achieved.

Special feature: The script switch allows the player to switch between the vintage "Script Logo" or the more modern and aggressive "Block Logo" phaser sound.

  • Designed with Edward Van Halen
  • Switchable vintage and modern voicings
  • Very stable housing
  • Eddie's typical red-white-black striped appearance
  • Metal footswitch
  • Speed control
  • Script switch (allows you to switch between the vintage "Script Logo" or the more modern and aggressive "Block Logo" phaser sound.)
  • 1 Input
  • 1 Output

MXR EVH Phase 90 Review

03.07.2014
MXR EVH Phase 90 Review

The EVH phase 90 pedal is a simple pedal with only one knob and one button and is very easy to use. It is essentially two phasers in one: the standard block-logo Phase 90, and the vintage 70's script-logo phaser, the button marked 'Script' switches between two phase sounds, one subtle and one more pronounced however the difference is not overly drastic.
From my experience with the pedal I think sounds best in the guitar chain rather than in the FX loop but this may just be a matter of preference. The reason that some may buy this pedal is to sound like EVH and with the script button pressed and the knob at around 9 or 10 o'clock it's a very convincing early Van Halen tone.
It is a compact pedal that takes up little room on any pedalboard but you will know it's there because the blue LED light is super bright. The build quality is very good, it's built like a small tank and best of all the EVH paint job looks really cool.
I use a power supply to power the pedal (not included) but if you intend on using batteries you may find it annoying removing the screws to get at the battery compartment.
Overall a great sounding phaser that is very hard to fault.
