Bad Stone Phase Shifter

EHX has resurrected the legendary Bad Stone Phase Shifter. With prices of 1970s’ vintage Bad Stones soaring, now is your chance to get a reissue that is faithful to the original circuit design and three-knob control layout, but features up-to-date enhancements for the modern player.
The Bad Stone delivers an incredible six stages of phase shifting plus a manual mode that lets the player freeze the phase. Its Rate knob controls the phase shifting speed which goes from a very slow swoosh to a rapid, oscillating warble. Feedback determines the depth of the phase effect and a toggle switch lets the user select Auto or Manual modes.
In addition to the die-cast package, other modern amenities include true bypass for maximum signal path integrity, an effect status LED and an AC jack that accepts an EHX9.6DC power supply.

Pete Brown of Vintage Guitar Magazine takes a look at the EHX Bad Stone phase shifter, C9 organ machine and Pitch Fork pitch shifter pedals and awards all three the Vintage Guitar Approved Gear award. Here's some of what Pete has to say:

"The Bad Stone is a useful, attractively priced small-footprint pedal."

"The Pitch Fork can open a range of notes that would be impossible to find on a standard guitar."

"The C9 Organ Machine is a digital box that may just blow your mind. Honestly, it's one of the most exciting stompboxes we've plugged into."

The EHX Bad Stone is a faithful reissue of the original vintage phase shifter of the same name but in a much smaller package. Combined with a classic Big Muff fuzz distortion, you get virtually unlimited cool tones!

David Curtis created this full-production demo to showcase how these two pedals sound alone and together within the mix of a real studio recording involving multiple instruments and settings along with live bass and drums.
