Sounds

Spirit if Radio intro (RUSH) – Maximum resonance and a slow to medium sweep rate. The Phaseomatic is pre-distortion (Tube Drive) so as not to cause severe filtering of the harmonic content.

Funky – Again using lots of resonance (feedback) to sharpen up the notches for a smooth wah-like effect.

Flying saucer – self oscillation – The Phaseomatic can be made to self-oscillate. First make sure your amp is turned down very low then simply unplug your guitar lead from your guitar and leave the other end connected to the input of the Phaseomatic. Turn up the resonance and the Phaseomatic will burst into self-oscillation. You have a tube signal generator!

Resonance – Slow sweep. You can really hear the depth, richness and complexity that sets tube phasing apart from transistor and VCA phasers here.
