The Moog Music MF-103 12 Stage Phaser is an analog phase shifter effect pedal. It has a 1/4 inch input and output and has its own power supply. It is not a rackable unit, it is a foot stomp box.


The configuration of this pedal takes a bit of getting used to, as there are a lot of parameters. Once you understand what everything does, it is easy to manipulate your in a variety of different ways to get a ton of interesting phaser sounds. The pedal has an LFO section with a knob that controls the amount and another knob that control the rate. It also has a switch to choose between hi and lo to change the tone. The phaser section has a knob for sweep, a knob for resonance and a switch to choose either six, or 12 stage. It also has a drive knob and a knob for output level. The manual for this is pretty thorough and helpful when learning what this pedal can do.


The effects from the Moog Music MF-103 are pretty incredible. It is capable of getting a huge variety of different tones, all of which are thick and rich tone. I have only used this pedal with guitar but it would definitley work well with keyboards and bass guitar. The wide array of parameters makes it possible to get a number of great sounding phaser tones, ranging from the traditional phaser sound to some interesting sounds that would be hard to replicate elsewhere. In my opinion, all Moog products are made well and are always about producing a great tone.


I've been using the Moog Music MF-103 12-Stage Phaser for about two years and it is probably the best phaser pedal out there. It is unique and has a great sound quality overall and the wide array of parameters makes it a versatile. Being that its one of the best phasers out there, it also has the price tag of that and will cost you about $250 USD new. For the serious player looking at getting a great phaser this is about as good as it gets and is probably worth the money. If you are interested in this pedal, or phase shifters in general, definitely check this pedal out as you may decide you can't live without it!
