The perfect phaser sound is one that helps imitate the human voice, kind of like a wah, but a phaser helps you enunciate your words/notes. Phasers give your guitar tone swagger. The Keeley Vintage Phaser saves you time by giving you the three most common phaser modulations in one pedal. Two, Four and Six stage phasers give you the most musical sound. Phasers create peaks and valleys in the spectrum or timbre of your guitar sound. The oscillator in a phaser makes the tone change rhythmically. The slippery slope of the low frequency oscillator in the Keeley Vintage Phaser gives you that old school, analog, wave-like sound.
Setting up a great tone is simple and quick. Start with all of the controls and noon so you can hear a bit of Rate and Depth to the phaser effect. Set how deep or wild the phasing effect is by adjusting the Depth control. The Rate control sets the speed of the oscillator. The FDBK Control sends some of the signal back to the input thereby creating a pronounced resonating effect. It’s that simple and easy to get a nice vocal-like modulation to your guitar tone.
