PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Roland Jet Phaser pedal in perfect working order and excellent cosmetic condition for its age.

These rare units were amongst the earliest pedals made by the Roland Corporation in Japan in the mid seventies.

It’s a great-sounding pedal – thick fuzzed-up swirly phasing effects – the speed ramps up or down between the fast and slow settings (using the footswitch on the right) just like a Leslie speaker. Pure Larry Graham, very Hendrix.

Lots of different tonal options – this is an awesome pedal.

Perfect working order & excellent cosmetic condition: apart from the two chips that you see on the front there are just minor dings to the casing, mostly on the edges.

It runs on two 9v batteries (supplied).

The price includes 20% VAT – customers outside the European Union pay the tax-free price of £320 – please ask before buying. VAT-free sales also possible to VAT registered businesses.

Often wrongly-credited as being responsible for the sound of the solo by Ernie Isley on The Isley Brothers ‘Summer Breeze’ (including by us) however we are indebted to Ebay user audible23 for setting the record straight:
“I used to think this pedal was the sound of Ernie Isley, but a recording engineer corrected me a long time ago. Here is a fairly recent interview with Ernie Isley explaining the sound.
The HUB: Your soaring guitar work on “That Lady” put rock guitar sounds in the spotlight-and that was pretty revolutionary for soul-inflected music at at the time. How did you get that sustain-drenched sound?
Ernie Isley: We were working with the same engineers Stevie Wonder was using on what would become Innervisions. We were working on the record that became 3+3. There was a fuzz box and a phase shifter by Maestro, and that was pretty much it. (Phaser would be a PS-1A and the fuzz was a Big Muff)
These sessions happened in 1973 and the AP7 wasn’t available until 1975 so it probably wasn’t used on the Summer Breeze track which was also cut during the same period. The Jet Phaser was probably designed with the intention of imitating this iconic sound.”
