Vocoder heaven
Earl Langoustine, 24.02.2020
Synth nerds: this is the pedal you need if you wanna get that particular 70s vocoder sound out of the VC340. Great for guitar stuff too.

Some settings can cause it to distort unpleasantly, but this might be a combination of a hot signal and overlapping filter bands - I mainly notice this when tweaking it in manual mode.

Great bang for the buck!
29.05.2016
I was looking for a phaser to complete my pedalboard and pretty much everyone recommended the iconic MXR Phase 90. I was about to buy that until I had the chance to compare it with the Bad Stone. The versatility of the latter is way beyond what the P90 can offer and you can get a ton of tones and effects with EHX's pedal. The Auto/Manual switch works well and the Rate knob provides a wide range of effects. Crank it up and you get some weird sounds you can't have with the Phase 90. So you get all those extra effects and versatility for about half the price compared to the Phase 90. You can't get a better deal than this! As with each EHX pedal, it's really sold and takes a lot of abuse.

Solid purchase
08.02.2016
Quite a simple pedal on the surface, but a surprising amount of sounds are available once you mess around with it. Especially with the addition of a manual switch and control knob, which is a welcome bonus for a pedal at this price.

Needless to say, the pedal is built like a tank, as all EHX pedals are. It was delivered in four working days (to the UK), as no complaints in any way.

Great product and service
31.07.2016
Really great sounding pedal. Very versatile yet easy to operate.
This is a fantastic sounding phaser pedal that gives an awesome seventies sound that was just what I was looking for.
Three knobs make it very easy to use and dial in the tone you want. The addition of a switch the holds the rate is a killer idea and gives a 'cocked wah' sound.

As ever Thomann delivered without problems and really quickly. Germany to UK in time for Sunday's rehearsal!
