Just purchased for the intro price.

This is a very good phaser with a lot of character, but can be pretty subtle when you dial things back. Very impressed.

Finally got a chance to play with this, fantastic, way better than the original phaser which I rarely used.
I noticed if you overdrive the inputs and outputs, it completely changes the sound, in a really nice way.

On some sources, at certain speeds, it becomes very noticeable and not in a nice way.
Agreed. The internal oscillator has an odd quality to the shape. While less noticeable at slow and very slow sweeps, as the freq goes up it's not so nice. But, the quality of the phase sound itself makes me happy and there's lots of other ways to control the sweep. I'm exploring possibilities with the envelope follower and that's giving me some new ideas for live playing. My other "go to" is the Fix Phaser which I also like very much. Almost didn't bother to take a chance of this Eventide, but now glad I did at the intro price.
