Mu-FX has expanded their line of effects with the Phasor 2X. The pedal is an enhanced reissue of the Musitronics Mu-Tron Phasor II from the 1970’s and was designed by Musitronics co-founder Mike Beigel.
“The Phasor 2X features the same analog electro-optical phase-shift circuitry as the original Mu-Tron Phasor II, with many enhancements,” a press release states. “These include: dual independent 4/6-stage phaser control sets, stereo (modified 5-stage) output, silent footswitches with true-bypass, expression pedal or CV control, and ‘EXP’ toggle switches to control rate or sweep functions. With no EXP/CV pedal plugged in, these toggle switches allow the Phasor 2X to become a stereo ‘multi-pole- filter’ EQ.”
As with the other reissues, the modern pedal is housed in the company’s “mini-mu” enclosure while featuring old-school graphics. Mu-FX also worked with Mission Engineering to create an expression pedal tailored for the Phasor 2X. The MU-XP2 has an extended length curved surface that can be used to control the Rate and Sweep of the phaser.
