I've look at the gear of some of the bands that I've been listening to lately (The Mars Volta, Incubus to name a few) and looking for common denominators. I've narrowed it down to the MXR Phase 90 and the Boss PH-3. I guess you could say that I'm looking for an alternative/experimental sound, but I still enjoy playing metal every now and then.
The Phase 90 is too deep in my opinion. Requires the Script mod to sound good, I think.
whoops, I made a mistake, It's an MXR EVH Phase 90
I have the MXR EVH 90 and I love it. And as the individual above me stated, it already has the script tone built into it, but by pushing the script button back up you can get some crazy stuff out of it.
I like my Phase 90, I wasn't happy with my Small Stone and the P90 seemed like the ideal alternative.
