“Shift” into high gear with the Fender Phaser, great for both guitar and bass and really super-whoooshy-sounding! Stylishly retro ’70s-era good looks, sure, of course—but you also get efficiently versatile intensity, rate, bypass and frequency controls that let you tailor that ethereal phasing sound to utter perfection.
You can easily emphasize treble or bass frequencies, and the big “rate” dial glows blue and red in synch with the phase shift rate, which is really cool and scientific-looking and stuff.
- Rate - This knob controls the rate at which the phase shifting occurs. The rate control knob alternately illuminates blue and red at the same rate as the phase shifting.
- IntensiIty - This knob adjusts the intensity of the Phasing effect.
- Frequency - This knob adjusts what frequencies are affected by the phasing action. Fully counter-clockwise causes the bass frequencies to be affected most by the phasing action, fully clockwise causes the treble frequencies to be most affected by the phasing action.
- Bypass SwiItch - A “true-bypass” of the phaser effect. Turns the phasing effect on-off.
- Output Jack - Connect to the input of your amplifier (or other audio device).
