    I see that you're 15.

    Cool. I get really amped when people your age get psyched about Van Halen.

    What I would do, is keep practicing, and worry about the pedal later. I suspect you're not ready for the pedal.

    Having said that, I'd say that whether you buy the Phase 90 (and do the "script" mod) or the EVH Phase 90, you'll be pleased with the effect.

    I've got the EVH phase 90, and it's worth the extra $$$ to me just for the bomb-a** paint job, the blindingly blue LED, the "script" button, which allows you to shift to a more modern phase, and the "mojo" the pedal, and even the damn box exudes.

    That said, it (along with almost any 30-year old phase) provides the thick, chewy sound that EVH made sound almost "new" back in 1978.

    There are a couple snobs on here who wax philosophically about buying a cheaper phase and making the "script" mod yourself, but it's much cooler to the EVH fan to have his endorsed model.

    If you can't afford the extra $30, then you've got bigger problems then whether or not you can play "Jamie's Cryin'". Seriously....think about it. Never listen to someone who debates eternal musical happiness over $30.

    I have It, and it's a great pedal. But, If you don't have an effects loop on your amp, then don't bother with it. I've had an orange model for years that i thought was broken . Turns out that it works MUCH better through the effects loop. but if you cant afford the the cost of the EVH version then buy the orange model, cause there isn't much difference. IMO

    Default what does it do...

    It does what most Phasers do...
    It actually offsets your sound slightly much like what a Delay pedal does but a Chorus, Flanger, or Phaser do it in a manner that they will shift time slightly and tone to give it a swirling, diving or chorused (multi-voice) sound and it usually runs in a repeating pattern. It accomplishes this by modifying a microsecond delay patern with your static guitar tone.

    You can usually modify the effect so you can adjust the perameters of your sound like how far it dives or how deep the tone or how fast it changes/sweeps.

    The MXR Phase 90 has a very distinctive tone quality. I notice it tends to have a chewy sound and its not as a pronounced phasing sound like some other pedals, it more subtle. It also tends to add some gain or a little crunch to the tone not much, just a little and it only has one parameter you can adjust, its the rate of sweep.

    It all adds up. This effect is known to be THE Van Halen sound, but it depends on what era. People tend to recognize Eds tone from his first album as the breakthrough rock n roll tone.

    With pretty much any decent crunchy amp that has a good moderate gain setting you can get Eds old tone with an MXR Phase 90, some Delay and hall style reverb. Of course a humbucking guitar with a whammy bar doesnt hurt.

    PS: I own a Phase 90 but havn't used it in a while since my amp was stolen But I do have the PODxt and its Phase 90 (I think) is pretty close.

    DEFECT

    I got one and it worked fine for a while but it is seriously defected. The other day, I put a new battery in it and I closed it up and about a minute later, something smelt like a battery being heated. It didn't work so I took the battery cover off and felt the battery and it was burning hot!! Im gonna send it back in now, but I was bummed because I was going to use it for my eruption solo at the local talent show. Oh well, the show must go on!
