Product Description


Schulte Compact Phasing 'A' phase shifter effect for sale.

Supplied with one of our custom dual footswitches which unlocks all the control/switching options. It has two footswitches for LFO start/stop and fast/slow speed selection, and twin rotary pots for the manual control (centre frequency) and fast speed setting.

Mono in, stereo out on a TRS jack.

It's a UK/EU 220v model, but can be jumpered internally to operate at 110v - otherwise a step-up transformer can be used - we do not recommend using cheap generic Chinese mains transformers.



Made in Germany in the early 70s by Gerd Schulte Audio, these mono in/stereo out analogue phasers found favour with some of the most iconic artists of the seventies, including Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream, Pink Floyd, JM Jarre, and Rainbow's John Lord and Ritchie Blackmore. Its use by many of the early seventies' most influential German groups has lead to it becoming known as the 'Krautrock Phaser'.

It took me years of hunting to find one of these for the studio - not many were made, and they don't come up for sale very often as people tend to hang on to them. I'll certainly not be selling mine in a hurry - the thick filter-sweep style stereo phasing is unlike any other phaser we've had - utterly addictive and inspiring to play through - a mix essential for me.

Though it's capable of some very subtle and lush effects, it's when you really crank it up that things get interesting: this is unlike any other phaser - it has a sound (and a life) all of its own and at extreme settings is almost filter-like. It's not the most intuitive phaser to use when you first get started - the controls interact in unusual ways - but it rewards perseverance with some amazing sounds.


Case has oxidation and scuffs, mostly to the edges. One knob cap is missing. Please ask if you need more photos.
