Phaser for kraftwerk style sweeps

Hi All

Im looking to buy a Phaser to create the same effect as kraftwerk on drumloops and synths etc.
So far my choice is either a Roland SPH-323, or Eventide Instant Phaser.
Both of these are late 70's early 80's models.
My other choice is the new Moogerfooger Phaser.
I know the BiPhase would be a great model, but realise they are hard to get hold of.

Any other recomendations...?

If you want the Kraftwerk phaser sound you should get the same phasers they used.

A Mu-tron Bi-phase is a bit more expensive than an Instant Phaser and an SPH-323, but I must say that they are a lot easier to find. Look in the U.S. Another phaser used on early Kraftwerk albums is the Schulte Compact Phasing 'A'. That one is not too difficult to find in Germany. The others still sound great though, so I doubt that you'll be disappointed with them. And an old Small Stone is cheap as well.
