Phaser muy sencillo, sutil y agradable.
Antonio781, 04.10.2012
El Maxon PT999 es un phaser pequeño, muy sencillo (sólo un control) y con un sonido delicado y agradable, similar al famoso MXR Phase 90. Es totalmente silencioso y requiere 9V para su funcionamiento. Suena muy bien combinado con otros pedales como overdrive y fuzz.

Su sonido es sutil y agradable, no pierde graves y suaviza bastante las frecuencias agudas. No es un pedal demasiado versátil ni capaz de efectos más extremos.

Aparte del control externo de velocidad, el pedal tiene dos controles internos para ajustar la frecuencia en la que se centrará el efecto y la intensidad del mismo. Personalmente, no he necesitado usar estos dos controles internos al gustarme como sonaba el efecto de serie.

Con la velocidad baja, el efecto de ondulación proporciona un timbre característico suave y agradable. A velocidades más altas, la ondulación rítmica se hará mucho más evidente, pero el timbre seguirá siendo muy musical y útil.

Fantastiskt ljud
21.03.2014
PT999 låter otroligt bra. Effekten ger en utmärkt phaser-klang utan att kompromissa ditt original-sound. Phasern är så pass transparant att du kan trycka igång den utan att förlora någon karaktär. Detta ger det härliga vintage phase ljudet som vi känner igen från till exempel Dark Side of the Moon (a la UniVibe).

Denna pedalen är trogen till Phase 90 orginalet, letar du efter en mer extrem och dominant effekt bör du istället spana in MXRs nya version av Phase 90, som är mycket mera dominant än den gamla versionen.

Un excellent phaser !
ronalla, 21.06.2020
Mon point de comparaison est The Ripple de chez Jam (rien que ça !) qui est sur mon pedalboard et la Ph-3 de Boss (fly you fools !)
Et bien je vais garder aussi la Maxon parce qu'elle déboite !
Phaser à 4 étages tandis que la Jam est à 2, du coup cela offre un effet plus prononcé (la Jam est géniale mais l'effet est plus subtil et se rapproche d'une vibe). Là, on a un phaser plus marqué donc, et chaud/douillet/moelleux, miam !
Un seul potard archi-efficace, ça sonne du début à la fin de la course et en clair comme en saturation. Pas de volume-drop et elle magnifie le son de la guitare.
Oui, elle colore un peu , c'est sûr, mais quelle couleur !
Et le boitier aussi, quelle couleur !
Solide et esthétique, un vrai coup de cœur pour quelqu'un en recherche d'un vrai phaser !

Toller Faser
Andreas F. 550, 19.11.2020
ich habe mich für den Maxon Phaser nach div. Vergleichen im Internet entschieden und ihn dann noch einmal bei Thomann im Geschäft gegen das entsprechende MXR-Modell verglichen.
Ich finde ihn klanglich warm und facettenreich und etwas ansprechender als das MXR-Vorbild. Die Bauart wirk stabil und im Vergleich zum batterie-pur Vorbild fand ich die Option mit einem Netzteil zu arbeiten und die LED-Betriebsanzeige ein zusätzliches Kaufargument.
