Hey all, I was going to buy a Phase 90 and a Small Clone but after reading about and seeing demos of the XO Electric Mistress Flanger/Chorus I was thinking I'd just get that. Does anyone agree? Anyone have experience with these?

EDIT: I am aware a phaser is not a flanger and vice versa but either are fine, just looking to add some color/uniqueness to the tone.

mind, the Electric Mistress is a !Flanger! not a phaser, such as the phase 90 - you won't get the same effect (look up the differences on the web). other than that, the effect quality of EHX is very good, to my mind - if you want flanger/chorus, get it.

try it, though!

Whodicted

depends if u want a phase shifter or a flanger...mistress is flanger, phase 90 is phase...i'd go with the mistress unless you want a phaser badly because the mistress has chorus, and i wouldn't bother buying a chorus pedal personally, even though the small clone is a great chorus. to me - chorus isn't an important effect because it's so light, not a big effect

It depends what you want.

If you like chorus and use it a lot (as i do) i would suggest the small clone. I own it and love it.

If you like phase, than get the phase 90, the script one would be the best, but the standard is also good. I also own it and love it.

The electric mistress is awesome and all, and it seems great, but i wouldn't get it for just chorus sounds, i think the small clone would probably be better.

Really we need more info as to what you like.

right Metallica is a given. Personally I like to pretend the bus exploded and killed them all in '86.

How is the chorus on the Electric Mistress?

Also I know its a flanger but it still provides a modulation to the sound. I'm still stuck between a small clone and a Phase 90 or the electric Mistress as funds are tight at the moment.

electric mistress will give you a wider range of tones, wheres the phase 90 is a really simple one knob phaser, and the small clone is a really simple one knob chorus.

Thats true, is the chorus good on the Electric mistress?

from my very brief experience with it (about 10 minutes at a music store) I thought it was pretty good, won't give you insane deep chorus, but did add that little something on to clean chords and helped thicken up overdriven tones a bit.

get the deluxe electric mistress, not the XO electric mistress if you choose to go that way

How come? Does it still have chorus or no?
