MXR Phaser owners. Apr 15, 1. Jan 18, Bronx, NY. Yes, I know this has been asked a million times, and yes I've read those other threads, but I wanted to ask now for some ated opinions, so please bear with yet another MXR Phase 90 vs thread. So, that's out of the way. MXR Phaser owners, please compare and contrast the 90 vs in your experiences. I am leaning towards the for the added control, but the 90 is so simple and good sounding I am finding it hard to pass up.
By rawkMay 6, in Effects and Processors. No, not that sort of date! Is there any way of finding out exactly when it was made like by any serial numbers, etc? Does a particular code related to a certain date or is the actually date stamped on the pots?
For example, would be a CTS pot, made in the 3rd week of OK, the pedal is an early block logo with LED but the circuit board is covered with foam and I can't see the pots.
There is a serial number where the battery goes and its Does anybody know what year this number relates to, maybe ? I'm looking forward to dating mine when it arrives. You can post now and register later.

OK, where's the data? Clap for the Wolfman.
My first reaction to the question was, if you want to date it, just ask it out - it can only say no I'm guessing that the white sticker near the QA signatures denotes that it's the th one to be made. Maybe Dunlop could help?
Dating an MXR Phase 90 w/ 1/8" DC Jack
Those numbers inside should allow them to tie it down quite neatly. My best advice for dating an mxr phase is to just be yourself. Dont wear Ed Hardy shirts and spike you hair to impress it. Usually they go for the gentlemen that hold doors and dont kiss on the first date.
Just follow my advice and maybe one day you will experience the joy of waking to the sound of the little pitter patter of phase 25s playing. I guess I'll go with my original plan - cut it in half and count the rings to see how old it is.
Since this item is pre-Dunlop, it's a toss-up whether calling them will be much help.

Yours was much funnier, haveyouseenhim. Juan Alderete sold it for me, check out his short video on his Phase If you dig that tone like I did, than that's it man.

A few The Mars Volta songs also feature it, and it sounds great. Ultimately, get what sounds better to you I guess. MGR likes this.

The original MXR pots have a shaft sticking through the middle on the back of the pot and the numbering on the pots will usually start with MXR as they had them specially made. Also check for MEXICO on the switch, with a date code like = 26th week Mexican switch. MXR used USA made Carling switches until very late, then may have used Missing: dating. May 08, MXR used pots with EIA date codes on them. They usually start with which is the manufacturer ( = CTS), then the next digits are the year and week. For example, would be a CTS pot, made in the 3rd week of Sometimes there are only 6 digits, for example would be (stackpole) 7= or , 31st week.
Many years ago I had both. The added sounds of the were not all that useful to me Honestly, I didn't like either one that much for bass and needed up trying to make the sound like the 90 If you have the 90 and expect to hear miracles with the in the band mix, I would suggest looking elsewhere.
Jun 24, Vancouver BC. The pedal was cheap, and the controls allowed me to dial it in WAY better than a Phase All that tone suck was gone.
The bass comes through nice and mean and it does shimmery, but can easily be dialed back for a bit more darkness. The weird part is that there is no volume control. It used to drop volume like mad before the conversion.
I left the controls original and doffed the additional out. I use it mostly for guitar now, but I'm very surprised how good it sounds with bass.
Mar 01, As others have said the 81 in the pot dat code format shows that your 'pot' was made in The last two digits will be the week of that year. If it's too close to week 52 it could overlap into by the time MXR got the pot from CTS and assembled the pedal. Another indicator will be any codes on the IC saporiviafrancigena.comg: dating.

Apr 16, Keep in mind that the Phase is fundamentally different from the Phase It's a 10 stage phaser where the 90 is a four stage phaser. In general as you go up in the number of stages (2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 etc) the phasing tone becomes brighter and more "shimmery" and a bit less "warm" or "organic" sounding as saporiviafrancigena.comg: dating.
