The Robert Keeley Electronics Phaser is an analog effects pedal that is suitable for any electric instrument, but that I've got experience using in the recording studio for recording electric guitar. It's got standard characteristics in terms of the basics, consisting of 1/4" connections for input and output and requiring nine volt power from a power supply. It isn't rack mountable in any way as it is a stomp box.


Using the Robert Keeley Electronics Phaser isn't as easy as using an MXR Phase 90, but it still isn't difficult. It does have a good amount of control available over your sound, as I find it to be quite versatile in terms of the different sounds that it is capable of getting. The pedal has got parameters for edge, ramp, slow, fast, and a switch for tap tempo/ramp to choose from. There are then two buttons - one for tap tempo or slow/fast depending on how you set the tempo/ramp switch, and one to engage the effect. While these aren't your typically named parameters for a phaser pedal, after some brief use I was able to see that it is pretty easy to figure out how to use.


The tone quality of the Robert Keeley Electronics Phaser is simply outstanding. It's absolutely up there with the best phaser pedals that I've used, even though I don't have as much experience with this one as I do others. I've used the pedal for only a single recording session where I was the engineer and not the player. I don't remember what kind of guitar he was using, but we were sending the signal to a '65 Fender Deluxe Reverb amp and then to a Neve 8108 console. This was a very good judge of how the pedal sounds, as this chain I knew before hand was a very good sounding one. It's possible to get a wide array of tones with this pedal, but I like it best for getting that subtle phasing effect that you almost don't know is there until you listen closely...


While Robert Keeley Electronics is mostly known for doing modifications, they do have a rather impressive line of their own pedals that includes this Phaser pedal. It definitely isn't a cheap phaser pedal when compared to other pedals out there, but that's the price you're going to pay for a handmade, top tier phaser pedal like this one. Because of this high price I can't say that I would recommend it to everyone looking for a phaser pedal, but if you're at a professional or semi-professional level and are looking for a top end phaser to use a lot, the Keeley Electronics Phaser needs to be in the conversation.
