I’ve been getting a few questions about the MXR Phase 45 (MXR Custom Shop CSP105 Vintage ’75 Phase 45 Phaser), so I definitely been wanting to bring this up. I’ve also been seeing this thing on a few pedal boards out there. Basically, it’s the little brother of the Phase 90 built in the 70s. It has been reintroduced (in the Custom Shop) and is built to exact specs.Â No LED, No power adapter, Matched FETs and all hand wired.
Here is the official description:
The MXR CSP105 Vintage ’75 Phase 45 pedal reissues the rare little brother of the Phase 90 to exacting specifications. With 2 stages of phasing, the Phase 45 guitar pedal offers up its subtle and musical voice via hand-matched FETs and a hand-wired circuit board.
The MXR Phase 45 phaser pedal is equipped with a bypass footswitch and a speed knob. Rotating the speed knob in a clockwise motion results in a faster phase effect, and turning it counterclockwise slows it down. The MXR phaser pedal is powered by a single 9V battery, accessed by removing the stompbox’s bottom plate. Texture your tone without overpowering your sound with the limited-edition Vintage ’75 Phase 45 phaser pedal.
