The Golden Years is classic phase shifter stomp-box for electric guitar.
The GOLDEN YEARS phaser is a modern take on our favorite classic phaser, the MXR Phase 45. This circuit provides a subtle and very musical phase shifting effect reminiscent of rotating speaker sounds from the golden years of rock recording. Place it before distortion pedals for throbby modulated sounds, or place it after distortion pedals for a more modern dance-like comb filtering effect(particularly cool with slow speed settings)
The Golden Years is housed in a tiny 2-1/8” x 2-5/16” enclosure that’s sure to squeeze onto anypedal board. Step on the footswitch to turn the pedal on and off. The LED lights up to indicate that the circuit is active. The powered circuit is completely removed (true bypass) from your signal chain when the pedal is off.
SPEED – trimpot near the top right of the circuit board when foot switch is down and LED is up. This controls the speed of the phase shifting cycle and goes from very slow and subtle to fast and warbly.
BIAS – trimpot neartop left of circuit board when foot switch is down and LED is up. This control is factory set and should not be adjusted too far. If it gets moved by mistake, set the speed to fully clockwise, and sweep slowly through the bias trimmer’s travel until the effect is prominent. There is only a very small window where the effect is active. If you want a less prominent effect with less throbbiness in the low, try adjusting it very slightly from the factory spot.
