The Phase 45 kit lets you build the 2-stage version of the Phase 90, and is great to get a warm phase shifter sound. While its big brother has a deeper sweep, the Phase 45 more subtle and organic tone works wonders for creating a light psychedelic atmosphere. The softer phase shifter tone produced by the Phase 45 kit comes from the fact that it only has one phase notch instead of two, interfering less with the original signal. Be aware: this is not an “in your face” kind of phaser!
The original circuit has been updated to be True Bypass, avoiding any tone loss when disengaged. Like the Phase 90, the Phase 45 kit has one control potentiometer:
– Speed allows you to adjust how fast the phase reacts
