This morning I came across an excellent deal on a pedal that I wasn’t too familiar with. The deal is on the MXR ZW90 Wylde Phase. Basically, Zakk is a fan of the classic MXR Phase 90 (like so many others) but the folks at Dunlop tweaked it to his specs. Controls are the same as the Phase 90 – single rate knob and bypass switch. Doesn’t get much simpler than that. This was a limited run in 2011, so supply is very limited on this pedal.
The MXR ZW90 Wylde Phase list price is $170.61, and is usually available for $100, but is currently on sale for only $49.99 at Amazon.com. Yeah, that’s $50 off the standard price on this pedal. Sort of a no-brainer here folks.
Here is the official product description:
The MXR Wylde Phase guitar pedal lets you kick in rocket boosters, adding lustrous soaring texture to your blistering leads and vertigo-inducing swoosh to your chords. Not just confined to guitar, the Wylde Phase fares equally well on bass, keyboards, and vocals. A single Rate knob dials in the magic – from a lazy swirl to a throbbing pulse. Zakk Wylde has tweaked this pedal to his exacting specifications, so if you’re fan of his guitar pyrotechnics – or just want a great phaser – the MXR Wylde Phase pedal has the goods to launch your sound into the Wylde zone.
I found this video by Nazzareno Zacconi showing what the MXR ZW90 Wylde Phase is all about:
Again, the MXR ZW90 Wylde Phase is currently on sale for only $49.99 at Amazon.com! At the time of this posting there were 18 units in stock. Often when the numbers get down to low single digits the price jumps up, so if you’re looking for a phase, you best jump on it!
