Electro-Harmonix - Effects Pedals - Phasers, Chorus and Flanger

Phasers, Chorus and Flanger

Electro-Harmonix often produces a range of pedals based on a single effect, and then combines two or more into higher end units. For instance, Chorus, Phaser and Flanger are often combined in some order.

The widely-used Small Stone phase shifter is a 4-stage phaser designed by David Cockerell, whom Electro-Harmonix hired from his former employer EMS. The phased sounds of French composer Jean-Michel Jarre depended heavily on the Small Stone unit. It was reissued years later by EH and a smaller version of the pedal was eventually introduced in the 'Nano' line (the Nano Small Stone).

The Small Clone chorus is a very popular chorus pedal, used by Kurt Cobain, both live and in studio. Like the Small Stone, it is issued in both the standard size and a smaller version (the Neo Clone).

The Electric Mistress is an analog flanger. It had first been sold in 1976 and was by that the first flanger in pedal format. The Deluxe version has been reissued and was still in production as of 2012, as well as the digital recreations called NEO Mistress and Stereo Electric Mistress. Except for the very first blue/red version the Electric Mistress featured a "Filter Matrix mode" which allowed the user to freeze it at any point in the flange, offering distinctive chime-like tones. Notable users include David Gilmour, Todd Rundgren, Alex Lifeson, Andy Summers of The Police, J Mascis of Dinosaur Jr. and ex-Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante.

The Flanger Hoax pedal is a more advanced unit, allowing further control of the various parameters of phaser, flanger and chorusing effects.

The Polychorus allows highly adjustable chorus, flanger, filter matrix, and slapback echo effects. Notable users include Cobain (i.e. Radio Friendly Unit Shifter), Adrian Belew, and more recently Ryan Jarman of The Cribs.

Electro-Harmonix's 'XO' line added the Stereo Polyphase, an analog optical envelope- and LFO-controlled phase shifter.
