This device has found its way into many of Eddie Van Halen’s recordings, adding a shimmery velocity to lead passages or a more dramatic swoosh to muted strumming. Not just for guitars; it works well with bass, keyboards and even vocals. Vary the speed from a subtle, long cycle to a fast, watery warble…and myriad vintage vibrations in between.
The MXR EVH Phase 90 was designed to pay homage to one of the most famous Phase 90 users of all time: Eddie Van Halen. With a Van Halen-inspired chassis and the same phaser-y goodness that can be found on songs like “Eruption” and “Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love,” the EVH Phase 90 is the ultimate in providing Van Halen “tone in a box.”
