Yesterday this pedal came in the mail. I was fascinated by the origin (from the hands of the AC30 designers) but also wanted to hear it in action.
Fired up the unit has a HUGE volume boost with the phaser engaged or in bypass mode. It is not true bypass I suppose. The phaser has no LFO and can be used by rocking the pedal forwards and backwards. It can be activated the same way as a crybaby wah.
The sound is surprisingly nice. A very complex phaser sound that I was not expecting from it. Looking at the circuit it only has transistors, no IC can be found. (if I recall, I've never seen a pure transistor based phaser).
More pics will follow; I'll trace it when I got some spare time!http://www.hendrixguitars.com/Ef230.htmhttp://www.effectsdatabase.com/model/je
