EVH90

Limited stock available in select stores only

Edward Van Halen earned his spot in the guitar tone hall of fame with the first note on his debut album in 1978. The guitar work on that album still boggles minds more than 25 years later. The tones that EVH got on that classic record are among the greatest ever, and a huge part of Eddies guitar sound has always been the MXR Phase 90. The Phase 90 contributed to the unbelievable tones on "Eruption," "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love," "On Fire," and "Atomic Punk," plus many other timeless Van Halen tracks. Now you can grab a piece of Eddie's magic with the new MXR EVH 90a collaboration between Eddie Van Halen and Dunlop Manufacturing that represents a totally redesigned, updated version of the legendary Phase 90. The EVH 90 will give you the same great spacey swirls and hypnotic warbles that made the Phase 90 famous. But the EVH 90 also features the all-new Script switch that lets you instantly toggle between a vintage, "Script Logo" phase tone and a more modern, in-your-face "Block Logo" phaser. Plus, the EVH 90 sports the greatest graphics in the history of rock: the red, white, and black stripes from Eddie's legendary Frankenstein guitar. Oh yeahit's also got a bitchin' new blue LED.

I have had the reissue MXR Phase 90 with the block logo and the EVH sounded better with true bypass. The really bright blue LED was a good idea too. Although EVH kept the dial at 9 oclock, I keep it at 10 to be different and it sounds so warm and full. Sometimes I turn the rate right off for cleaner tones for strumming for a chorusy sound. The best phaser maybe for sound but not as adjustable as the BOSS.

The Phase 90 is the benchmark for phasers. This one has both the block mode (the more modern voicing) and the script mode can be accessed with the push of a button (a more EVH voiced, subtler phase). Set it at nine o clock for a noticable sweep that jumps out of the band mix or set it higher than noon for David Gilmour-like phasing from Dark Side of the Moon. If you are looking at a phaser, spend the extra few bucks and get the EVH over the Phase 90. It looks prettier anyways.

My name is Adrian Blaney lead guitarist for Tracenine, based out of Cambridge Ont, gig in Europe to USA. Being a HUGE !!!!! Eddie Van Halen fan I finally bit the bullet and purchased a MXR EVH Phase 90. My main gear for my amp is a Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier with a reverb and delay pedal in the effect loop and a various pedals on my pedal board , now now squeezing in my new EVH Phase 90. I plug in using a CHARVEL ART SERIES ( black and white EVH stripes, looking down nice blue LED off the EVH phaser I put the dial to 9 o'clock and bamb !!!!!!!!I break into Euroption OMG !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Eddie would be proud of me right now !!!! lol my hairs stood up. The EVH Phaser had the swoosh feedback my boss pedal was missing , moving the dial to 3 o'clock I play Pink Floyd , wow I'm impressed now I had the scriped button in ,did it make a difference ? not too much but I could here a bit of a tone difference, is there a difference between the newer block logo MXR Phase 90 ? which is my next purchase but im going to do the "R28" scriped mod myself, then I'll A/B them to here for myself I love the EVH Phaser it's cool , maybe its a status thing for EVH guitar fans. The price is a little high ,would it make a difference if i used this or the new Block Phase 90 live , no !! it wouldnt but it looks pretty cool with the stripes I love looking at it lol, kind of cheap when I hold it, it's light weight, but to me its killer , regardless if your a EVH fan or Kieth Richards to Jimi Hendrix buy it you'll love it and crank it up . cheers
