Mattoverse Electronics' tricked-out new phaser pedal is more than Just a Phase

Wisconsin-based pedal maker Mattoverse Electronics has made some interesting promises with its pedals before. 

Now, the company that once released a pedal that aimed to make your guitar sound like "absolute garbage" has released one that's proudly named Just a Phase. With a feature set like this one though, we reckon this neatly designed phaser pedal will be a pedalboard keeper. 

The Just a Phase pedal boasts eight digitally controlled waveforms, selectable via a dial. On one end of the sonic spectrum lies your classic swirl, but Mattoverse also promises, with further exploration, some tougher square and ramp waveforms that verge on harmonic tremolo territory.

Elsewhere, the pedal features control knobs for character/depth and rate, and a second footswitch for tap tempo.

The Mattoverse Just a Phase pedal runs on 9V DC power, comes in Silver Sparkle and White Texture finishes, and rings up at $189. An optional clear acrylic faceplate, though, brings the price up to $209.
