First Look: Effectrode's All-Tube Phaseomatic Deluxe

Effectrode PhaseomaticBefore I sign off for the weekend I just wanted to leave you all with a quick look at this beautiful stompbox I just got in for review––a brand spankin’ new prototype of Effectrode’s Phaseomatic Deluxe.

The pedal is essentially a re-ingeneered “Deluxe” version of the world’s first photo-optical, vacuum tube phaser, and like its predecessors (See my review of the Tube-Vibe,) the Phaseomatic Deluxe is decked out in gorgeous retro-’50s styling, and packed into a road-worthy die-cast aluminum chassis.

Yep, that’s three easy-access 12AT7 tubes poking out of the top, meaning this bad boy sucks too much power to run on a 9v battery, but the pedal should run smoothly off any standard-size 12v DC adaptor with a center-negative connector. Three old-school chicken head knobs and a toggle switch round out the vintage look.

Keep an eye out for the full review here on EGR… it should be up in the next week or so.
