I have both the Small stone and the VP. I bought it because it is so low cost. But it does sound very good. No noise in it at all.

Its a bit big but has a sturdy case (some might like that). I hate the logo 'Vintage Phaser' which does not give it much of a classy feel. But all in all I am glad I bought it. I use it with synths. It gives the Oxygene sound for sure. Along side the original small stone there is nothing to distinguish between them.

It has an analog path too.

This is obviously based on the old '70s EH Small Stone Phaser - it has the same controls and similar housing. It's quite a large pedal, especially sat next to a Boss pedal. I'm very impressed with the sound quality - no significant loss of tone or volume with the pedal engaged. The on/off switch is the silent type which is a nice feature, some of my other 'boutique' pedals make a very loud 'click' which is annoying if you're playing quietly. Only two controls; a tone switch & rate knob. and I prefer the tone switch in the 'down' position - this gives a more subtle 'mxr script' type phasing. The tone 'up' setting is quite harsh. Overall I'm very pleased, especially as it was so cheap. I will be selling my £100 'boutique' phaser now as this does the job just as well!

Every time I look at a Behringer product I cringe at the name and the thought of another cheap feeling product.....This is not the case for the vintage Phaser has a fantastic solid and almost retro feel to it.

The effect does what it says on the tine and the control is simple.

I'm a bass player and I thought it would be cool to try a phaser out and this pedal has literally stayed on my board because it sounds fantastic.

Only minor issue I have is there literally isnt any difference in the mode sounds! but for what I need it for the ability to change the rate alone is more than enough for me.

This is a well built item externally. There is some glue blodge in mine, but that has no effect on the sound. Mine rattled when it arrived, as all will. It's the flylead for the battery, nothing more.
Connecting it to my PSU and I started to play. How can such good sound come from such an inexpensive unit?. Uli does it again. These Vintage FX are top quality.
This unit is well covered elsewhere, so all I'll add is play. Not just strumming away, but in terms of -where- in the chain it is inserted. It sounds good straight into the front of the amp, sounds good before an overdrive, good after too. I prefer the 'tone' switch in the down position, your mileage will vary. I then tried it in the loop. Before delay(s) gave me the best results of all in the loop. Let the preamp do its work, then phase it, but then, I run an overdrive(s) as a crunch into a fairly clean amp.
This, for me, doesn't just give other pedals a run for their money, it quashes them. I get no drop in volume, no tonal suck no matter where I place it signal wise. If you want/need wet/dry mixing and your amp doesn't have a parallel loop, this isn't for you. For the rest of us, for the price of a good takeaway curry, it is superb in both sonic terms and value terms.

The two main flavours of vintage phaser are the Small stone and the Phase 90.
This pedal is a clone of a Electro-harmonix Small stone, which sounds similar to but not exactly like MXR Phase 90.
Simple rate control and a low/high tone switch, creates swoosh effect mainly used in the 60's but is still a great effect.
Sounds great on guitar and could be used for any instrument, even vocals, its not really designed for bass but is still sounds good.
Tiny bit of LFO bleedthrough when not in use sometimes, but noise can disappear when tone is set to low or moved in the chain, this is probably the same as the pedal it is based on.
It's less than half the price than a Small stone nano but is practically the same.

Well... this pedal is surprisingly good.

However, a lot of people reviewing it here are talking out of their ass about it or have gotten faulty units and are judging it for what it is not.

1) the toggle DOES make a difference, just as in a Small Stone. Up is fatter and more coloured, down is more neutral and sharper.

2) This has nothing to do with an MXR Phase 90, and it certaintly sounds very different from a Small Stone. The Small Stone would have a much more characteristic sound/colour to it, while this one's character is quite neutral for a phaser of this sort, and i'm not saying that as a bad thing. It's just different. I have AB'd them and also with a Phase 45.

3) It has no volume drop and it doesn't alter your tone for being in the chain. At least if you run it through power supply energy.

The only bad thing i have to point out so far is really the switch, it doesn't click when it goes on and that annoys me a little, personally.

AMAZING VALUE.

Worth getting just because. May be buying a second one just because too.

This is an interesting pedal. It gives a very good phaser sound with a long whoosh or a shorter, almost Uni-vibe sound.

Good points: sound is as claimed. Will run either in front of your amp or in the effects loop but I prefer it in front as I'll explain below. It's very inexpensive and good value.

Bad points: Not sure I'd take it on the road but at the price you could have 2 or 3 back ups and still spend less than a classic Boss or MXR. The resonance switch is either on or off and I'd don't like the sound of it on (reminds me of cats in a blender!). It's a pity there's no blend or depth control. Putting it in front of the amp helps tone it down a bit but it's very much a one sound pedal (but not necessarily a bad sound).

I've compared it to my classic Boss PH-1R and setting both pedals to the same depth, speed, etc and there are almost indistinguishable. However . . . in blind A>B the Boss won every time; it just has a sort of unctuousness like a really nice soft toffee compared with the Behringer which is more like a brittle boiled sweet. If you could mod it with a depth control it would be a really good budget phaser.
