that looks very helpful indeed... I like the presentation on this site, the explanations about what each diode or resistor does if you take it out of the circuit or replace it or whatever. I think I might tinker with some of those SD-1 mods. thanks for the link!

I did the r28 mod to mine - as well as the c11 and c12 mod. It makes a huge difference in sound. It's reported to make it pretty damn close to script specs - the sound is rich, lush and clean with no clipping. I love my modded phase 90.

A line of pedals is dangerous. Each pedal impacts the tone of the subsequent. So a pedal at the end is impacted by all the predecessors. Try using the P90 as your only pedal and see if you like it. If you do then you need to either TrueBypass your other pedals or, highly suggested, find some sort of looper.

The MT PIII is a delicious phaser!

However I do prefer the M PH350.

I like how it is "less" of an effect compared to most phasers and it works with my tone instead of replacing it with something phased out!
