best mxr script phase 90 clone?

Some like 'em and some don't, but I bet everyone has at least a couple — Analog Delay, Digital Delay, Reverb, Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Tube Overdrive, Transistor Overdrive, Fuzz, Octave Fuzz, Tremolo, Vibrato, Compressor and the list goes on!

The Retro-Sonic Phaser is the best I've heard. I have an old script MXR, and the RS nails that sound. But it also has upgrades like true bypass switching, a volume control to match effected vs. non-effected output, and a depth knob for creating thicker phased sound.

They aren't cheap, but they are cheaper than the script-logo MXRs these days.

+1! i just got it 2 weeks ago, and it's great. I sold my reissue MXR phasers including the EVH model.

The retro sonic is very very nice !
But I think the shannon is even nicer sounding. But they are difficult to find ...

Not that difficult. I have one I'll let go. The RS kicks its butt all over the temporal plane

BYOC Script has been the best for me. I tried the MXR Reissues (EVH & Screipt) and the Retro-Sonic, the BYOC just sounds and feels right.

That Retro Sonic sounds pretty quiet. I really dig phasers, but I couldn't afford that one.
