    Default EVH MXR Phase 90 questions

    1. What is the black circular "widget" that comes with it for?
    2. Do you guys run it through the effects loop or straight in?

    the black rubber widget slips over top of the sweep knob for extra protection and grip when you may be trying to turn the knob with your foot on stage . possibly for aesthetic reasons too.

    most people run it in front of the amp , i run mine at the beggining of my effects chain as well. in the effects loop its kind of noisy and you can get a popping sound as the phase sweep ends.

    I am glad I read this thread. I couldn't figure out the purpose of the rubber piece either. But it makes sense now.

    You can run it either way, I've tried both. IF you run if through the front of the amp, the effect is much less than if you run through the effects loop. matter of choice I guess but I think it sound better throught the effects loop.
