Martin Two Faze:
Carl Martin's new Two Faze is actually two separate phaser pedals in one stompbox with independent sets of controls for speed. Each "phaser" has an LED, which flashes according to the speed setting. The "select" switch allows you to switch between the two phaser settings without having to get down on your knees to alter the controls. If quiet, transparent vintage phaser tone from the 70's is what you’re after, check out the Two Faze.
3.5" wide x 4.5" deep x 2.25" high

GUITAR PLAYER MAGAZINE (Barry Cleveland) - Decemeber 2003:
The first commercially available stompbox phaser was introduced in 1970 by electronics wizard Tom Oberheim as the Maestro PS-1. The PS-1 sported a power switch and three rocker switches labeled Slow Phase, Medium Phase, and Fast Phase. Now considered a classic, the PS-1 was used on countless early-'70s recordings.
The Carl Martin Two Faze ($320 retail/$209 street) purports to recreate the basic sound of the PS-1, while updating the performance specs, and offering what amounts to two PS-1s in a single pedal. Like the original, the effect is either off or onwith no control over depth or other parametersbut instead of three speed switches, you get two continuously variable controls that range from slow to fast (as well as LEDs that flash to indicate speed). One footswitch engages the effect, and another selects which phaser is active.
The Two Faze does indeed sound an awful lot like the vintage Maestro pedal, producing thick and vibey phase textures that range from very slow and swishy to gurgling to ultra-fast. Like all Carl Martin pedals, the Two Faze is handwired in Denmark using very high quality components, so its operation is super-quiet. and there are no pops or clicks when switching. Sound quality is excellent, and the Two Faze gives you two classic phasers for less than you'd pay for a single original PS-1. Groovy!
Pros: Two phasers in one pedal. Cool vintage sound
