i dunno if its just me but i think phasers are the worst guitar effect you could wast your money on. I hate everthing about them and theres only a handfull of good songs that use them. any one agree? and what songs that use phasers do you think are best?
#2
Acoustic simulators are worse... what a worthless piece of equipment
Suhr Custom, Flaxwood Rautia or Grosh Tele thru
HBE Medicine Bawl Wah
Analogman BiComp
Texas Two Step OD
Fulltone Ultimate Octave/Fuzz
Boss CE-2
TC Nova Delay
SLO-100, 65 London or Bogner Shiva
Ask me about any of this stuff!

The outro in Parallel Universe by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the solo on Throw Away your Television also by the Peppers. Van Halen used it really much. Tom Morello, the most originaland creative guitarist of these days uses it also.

I really don't understand why you hate phasers. They are my fave pedals.
my guitar will make you cry

Well it all really depends on the genre of music really...

Ive acutally been kinda interested in the Line 6 deley modeler. It sounds like it would be awesome for clean acoustic songs. what do you guys think?

I like phaser aswell, even if there aren't many songs i play that uses them, I still like them for original songs and improvisation.
I've noticed it's kinda fun to experiment with using phaser in a song where you originally would use a chorus pedal, gives the song a more of a stoned feeling without changing it _too_ much (depends on your settings too of course).

I'm not very fond of flanger though, I prefer phaser of chorus over that anyday.

There are a lot of songs that use phaser pedals and you probably don't even know that its a phaser pedal giving it the sound. EVH uses a phaser in almost all of his songs he ever wrote, and van helen is amazing.

i smoke some weed and get naked. thats the way to write a good song.

Wow, I'm one of the only people so far who prefer a flanger over a phaser.

Flangers have a much more natural sound to them, which is why EVH used one, and Frusciante also used a flanger.

Flanger > Chorus in almost every situation.

i think flangers rule over phasers doesnt rage against the machine use phasers ina song or 2?
#14
if you dont like phasers dont buy one.

the autowah never floated my boat. always seemed to have like..2 sounds, very static.
#15
phasers are good for one tone solo things, noy really the kinda effect you put on top of a riff like a wah or distortion. its more of a 'synth' effect.
#16
i liked what hendrix did with it on the end of bold as love...but personally i don't like to play with one.

I ain't into effects in general.

While playing with them, I get bored too easily- even though I like bands that heavily use them- they just ain't my thing.
#22
I personally like the Small Stone cause it sounds more organic, but hey, I'm a flanger guy, so I might be a little biased.

I don't use any effects. I want to play notes, not a backdrop for swooshy noises.
#25
amen, my phaser probably gets more use than my overdrive pedal to be honest with you, i love phaser, i don't mind flange, no-one uses it anymore. My MXR EVH is amazing, i'd die without it!

Phasers are good in moderation. Too much just sucks though.

Floyd has good phaser use.
I'm not very active here on UG currently.

what about the intro to "Pardon Me" or "Stellar" by Incubus, great great tone and lovely use of the Boss PH-2.

Mike Einziger knows how to use effects.

I don't use a phaser that often but one thing I do with them from time to time is put a phaser before the destortion pedal and set it really weak. Just to create the slightest hint of movement. Add the distortion and this can create a really nice and sweet distortion tone. It's subtle and it's something that even someone who hates phasers can do to get some use out of one.
#31
i set my flange phase chorus and reverb in my effects loop it makes the phaser really mesh well with clean and shine with the distortion sorta like hoobastank's crawling in the dark

Everyone has different taste in effects... I don't really like autowah or tremolo myself. But it's all opinion.
A dwarf might hear you. What then?
