Moog Moogerfooger MF-103

The Moogerfooger MF-103 is a 12-Stage Phaser designed by Bob Moog himself. It incorporates a 6-stage/12-stage phaser and a wide-range LFO, and it's analog! Use it with your synth sounds, or even incorporate it into your older analog synths as a semi-modular effects section because all its parameters can be controlled by CV/Gate (not MIDI). It has a mono input, but stereo outputs. The stomp-box itself is like a little classic Moog with its rugged black chassis, Minimoog-style knobs and switches and wooden side-panels.

This 12-stage phaser gives you dynamic sweeping effects that add motion and life to whatever you apply it to. Run some loops, sounds, guitar or an entire mix through. The 6-Stage phaser mode has three dips in its frequency response, while the 12-Stage mode has six dips and the MF-103 features a variable feedback circuit which increases the resonance of the Phaser's effect. The LFO controls the rate and depth of the Phaser effect. Four knobs control LFO Rate and Amount and Phaser Sweep and Resonance. Two smaller knobs control the input and output levels in which the input can be overdriven. The MF-103 will add a nice and authentic analog Phaser effect giving your sounds a third dimension.

Rawest, and most complex phaser I've ever owned or encountered.

I have something of a phaser fetish, having owned at least eight discrete pedals for this one effect. Gigging, I'll use a Phase 90 for guitar or a Small Stone for Solina, but in the studio this is my go-to phaser. Works well with both keys and guitar. There are a some of boutique phasers that let you step-sequence or S&H the phase angle, but again this box matches wits by giving you CV I/Os. Overall, this is the undisputed champion of the phaser world.

I just love this pedal, probably the best pedal I have ever owned/tested/heard/seen. The classic subtle 6-stage phaser sounds great, real analog effect! Also, the 12-stage function is just plain incredible, but very hard to use unless you have it very subtle. But thats what I like about this pedal, it is just like an analog synth or whatever, you have to know what you are doing, or it won't sound right. But when you do know what you're doing, nothing can beat it! What I love the most though is the ability to play "phaser-wah" with an expression pedal, sounds completely out of this world!
