Within a year of releasing their instant classic Warped Vinyl chorus/vibrato pedal, Chase Bliss Audio have now brought us the Wombtone, their take on what could be the ultimate analog phaser guitar pedal. Far ahead of that simple one-knob “Phase 90” mold, the Wombtone is packed with 6 knobs, 4 flip switches, 2 foot-switches, and 16 dipswitches for unparalleled control in an analog phaser… or nearly any analog pedal outside of the Warped Vinyl. There’s even an Exp/CV input and Tap/MIDI input for additional control possibilities. And of course Chase Bliss Audio’s innovative “Modushape” waveform creator is present from the Warped Vinyl as well. The Wombtone even features options for 4-stage and 6-stage phasing and a Feedback control to help you achieve your desired phasing sound.

One of the hallmarks of the Warped Vinyl is that with all the parameter control available, the most important stuff is right on top for dialing in sounds easily. The Wombtone also gives you 2 presets as well, so a couple of your favorite or more complex phasing creations can be recalled with ease. All-in-all there’s a lot going on with this pedal, and if the Warped Vinyl is any indication, the Wombtone is going to be a good one. Is it the best analog phaser pedal out there? Let’s run down the features and return to the womb in our Chase Bliss Audio Wombtone review.



All-analog signal path.

Ramp control knob can be set to control any of the 5 parameters (Volume, Feed, Rate, Depth, Form) individually or simultaneously via dip switches on the back of the pedal. Controls the ramp time in which this takes place.

Volume control knob sets the level of the effect.

Feed control knob controls the amount of feedback on the phasing effect.

Rate control knob controls the rate of the phasing effect. Can be overridden by the tap tempo switch.

1 – 2 – 3 (3 – 6 – 8) toggle switch sets the tap division for tap tempo. A dip switch on the back accesses the “3 – 6 – 8” divisions.


Depth control knob sets how wide the phaser goes. Vocal tones can be found somewhere around 11 o’clock.
Form control knob sets the center point of the modulation. Set it counterclockwise to make the wave ramp up quickly and down gradually. Set it clockwise to make the wave ramp up gradually and down quickly. Set it at noon for a perfectly symmetrical wave.
Left Wave Shape toggle switch sets the first half of the wave modulation. Left for sine, middle for triangle, right for square.
Right Wave Shape toggle switch sets the second half of the wave modulation. Left for square, middle for triangle, right for sine.

Bypass footswitch activates or bypasses the effect via true relay bypass. Can by changed to a momentary bypass via a dip switch in the back of the pedal.

Tap Tempo footswitch sets the tap tempo and always honors the last two stomps.

Preset toggle switch recalls presets. Middle position reflects current knob positions, right position recalls right preset, and left position recalls left preset.

Exp input jack allows expression pedal or CV control of parameters selected via dip switches on back of pedal.

Tap input jack can be used for tap input or output with a regular ¼” instrument cable.

Powered by 9-volt battery or 9VDC power adapter (consumes ~25mA).

Chase-Bliss-Audio-Wombtone-Review-Best-Analog-Phaser-Pedal-05Dip Switches:

Volume, Feed, Rate, Depth, and Form dip switches on the left side simply turn that parameter on or off for ramping or expression pedal capability.

Volume, Feed, Rate, Depth, and Form dip switches on the right side control whether the parameters rise or fall in ramp mode. This also affects the direction of movement with an expression pedal.

Bounce dip switch makes parameters go back and forth (i.e. modulate) or ramp and hold.

Stages dip switch selects between 4 and 6 stages.

MoByp dip switch activates momentary bypass, activating pedal only when Bypass footswitch is pressed in.

Tap Control dip switch allows tap tempo to modulate Ramp rate (r) or phaser Rate (p). Bounce needs to be on to modulate Ramp speed.

Tap Division dip switch selects from “1, 2, 4” tap divisions (1) to “3, 6, 8” tap divisions (3).

Sweep dip switch selects where Ramp sweeps. In “t” (top) the ramping (or expression control) will occur between the current Ramp knob position and the max position (fully clockwise). In “b” (bottom) the range is set between the current knob position and the minimum position (fully counterclockwise).

Sound & Performance:

Have you ever experienced something that was so good that you couldn’t possibly imagine its successor living up to or exceeding the reputation of the original? (I’m suddenly thinking of the Star Wars prequels.) It does happen on rare occasions though. (Empire Strikes Back = best sequel ever!) I received the Wombtone expecting it to be good – great actually – but I highly doubted that I would love it as much as I loved the Warped Vinyl and certainly not moreso. I was wrong.

Warped Vinyl vs Wombtone

While the Wombtone follows the Warped Vinyl with a generally familiar control layout and also being a modulation pedal, make no mistake, the Wombtone offers an entirely different palette of sounds and tone shaping potential. First, the most obvious difference is the Warped Vinyl is a chorus/vibrato pedal, and the Wombtone is a phaser. But there’s more that sets these pedals apart aside from the different types of modulation they offer. The Warped Vinyl is lo-fi and grainy; the Wombtone is pristine and defined. The Warped Vinyl is generally dark and ominous; the Wombtone offers a prism of color with which to paint your sound. Be warned: the clear question that arises when playing the Wombtone and Warped Vinyl is not which one to get, but which one to get first, as you’ll likely find enough to like about each one to want both on your pedalboard.

Familiar Rate and Depth controls are present on the Wombtone, giving you simple control of the phasing effect. There’s also a Feed knob that lets you essentially recycle the phased signal into itself for a more prominent effect. Its max setting is just on the brink of oscillation and covers plenty of musical territory throughout its range. 4 and 6 stage options also contribute to the overall character of the phasing with their intensity varying depending on how you adjust the Depth and Feed. It’s more of an apples and oranges difference to me than saying either 4 or 6 stages is better. I do find myself leaning towards the 4 stage option as it still offers a promiment phasing effect that has a greater range of subtlety at lower to moderate Feed and Depth settings. Thanks to the Wombtone’s trio of Depth, Feed and 4/6 stage variations, it produces some of the smoothest analog phasing you’ll find in a pedal. The Wombtone can easily sit alongside any of the great analog phasers (including the Musitronics Mu-Tron Phasor II from which the Wombtone draws its inspiration) while offering a deeper range of tones that most phasers can’t dream of competing with.

Chase-Bliss-Audio-Wombtone-Review-Best-Analog-Phaser-Pedal-04Chase Bliss Audio’s unique Modushape LFO waveform editor is present here. The “Warp” knob of the Warped Vinyl has been renamed “Form” on the Wombtone but still retains the ability to move the center point of your waveform for lopsided modulation effects. You can leave the Form knob in the center and use the Modushape flipswitches to select from sine, triangle, and square wave shapes. Adjusting these various controls with the Depth knob to mangle the LFO waveform will produce all kinds of weird and interesting phasing sounds. While some of the more strange and jagged LFO effects may seem more suited to the theme of the Warped Vinyl, it’s still very cool to have the range of LFO options available in the Wombtone as Modushape offers the easiest and most versatile way to create a custom LFO that you’ll find in an analog pedal.

The Ramp knob can be set to any (or all!) of the other 5 knobs to control their parameters in realtime via expression pedal (or CV). Dipswitches under the pedal let you select which parameters to assign the ramp to. You can even reverse their direction to have some parameter values increase while others decrease. A Bounce dipswitch lets you automate the Ramp function for foot-free control, making the selected parameters modulate back and forth at the rate set by the Ramp knob. You can also use the Wombtone for tremolo effects by setting Volume to ramp. Plug in an expression pedal for volume pedal control or fade-in-to-phase effects.

Another cool thing I really like about the Wombtone is using it as a tone-shaping preamp/boost effect. Turning down the Depth lets you use the Feed knob to fatten up the sound and set it to an ideal sweet spot. Raise the Volume past unity gain for a boost if you’d like. If you want to take it further, use an expression pedal with no parameters set to Ramp, and you can sweep through the phase range manually for cool notched-wah style effects. Sweeping through the phase manually also lets you pull off very slow phasing effects. You can create some rising and falling phasing that moves along with a chord progression. Better still, keep the pedal in heel or toe position for the tone enhancing effect, then sweep through to the other side for a dramatic effect in a progression. Very, very awesome.

Tap Tempo, CV, MIDI, & Beyond…

Tap Tempo is one of the biggest benefits of the Wombtone (and Warped Vinyl), letting you easily sync the pedal’s modulation to your music. You can sync to even and odd divisions ranging from 1, 2, & 4 via a top mounted flipswitch (3, 6, & 8 divisions are availalable by flipping a dipswitch beneath the pedal). If you send the Wombtone MIDI clock it will sync the LFO from the center point, locking in precisely to the beat. You can even use the selected Tap division with MIDI Clcok, and it will still sync with MIDI clock with your chosen division. Control voltage can be used with the Exp input, giving you further control of the Ramp effect or the manual sweeping of the phase I mentioned earlier. You can also use MIDI to Engage/Bypass the pedal, reset the Ramp, control Tap Tempo, and activate presets or “live” mode. That’s a lot of control.

I’ve tried hard to find faults with this pedal, but I’ve been unable to really. The only other things I can even think of that I’d like to see implemented are perhaps additional MIDI CC control of the pedal’s other parameters. Also, when using an expression pedal to manually control the phasing effect, it would be nice if the Depth knob could select the upper limit of the sweep in toe down position. Some expression pedals let you set to lower range at the heel position, so this little tweak would allow precise exp. pedal control over a very specific range. These are certainly not complaints, just suggestions that would make a stellar product even more awesome. The Wombtone is already at the top of its class in every conceivable way.

The future for Chase Bliss Audio is looking very bright. If you want ultimate control of top-notch analog effects pedals, there’s probably a place for the Wombtone in your future, too. (UPDATE: See our Chase Bliss Audio Wombtone MKII review!) Let’s see the final result.



I’m not going to say that the Chase Bliss Audio Wombtone is the greatest phaser pedal ever made, but it’s certainly the best I’ve ever played. If you just want a basic phaser of the highest sound quality, the Wombtone delivers – just stick with the Depth, Rate, & Feedback controls. If you want a labyrinth of analog phaser tone with complete control of nearly every nuance of its sound, the Wombtone is a must have. For those who want it all, the Wombtone is easily the best analog phaser pedal available today.

That concludes our Chase Bliss Audio Wombtone review. Thanks for reading.

  1. To enter the contest, I am commenting on this review. Seriously, though- if I don’t win this pedal, I am going to buy it anyway. Then, I am plugging in a tele and playing some Waylon. Then, a bit of Dragonfly- jamming on some Frank Marino. Finish up with Ten Yests Gone.

  2. Always looking for new sounds on my board. This one seems extremely versatile. Call me ignorant, but I’d give a 6-knob pedal a chance any day.

  3. Both of the Chase Bliss pedals look extremely impressive. This one especially interests me… Gonna flip my Modfactor for one of these, I think.

  4. The wombtone is so thorough and has incredible tonal possibilities. I’ve never had a phaser, but I’ve used the MXR EVH phase 90 and always used it subtly. It was great for warming up my clean tones, which would be perfect with the Wombtone. I’d love to see the Warped Vinyl on here if it isn’t already.

  5. They seem like a great company in every aspect

    Their Facebook posts prove how much they respect their customers and their pedals sound incredible! The link between analogue and digital is perfect!

    An awesome 2014 for this company, and here’s to a great 2015

  6. The guys and gals at Chase Bliss really nailed this pedal. Despite the foot switches and multiple knobs, it remains very intuitive and easy to use. The depth and sound quality of the pedal from simple overtones to deep synth modulation is amazing. And the red is sexy.

  7. I’ve never seen such an amazing phaser. They aren’t usually my favorite kind of effect, but this one would see some real use. It’s so flexible. Whether it’s a subtle sound or something extreme for those times you want something to stand out, this will do it. Love that it’s analog too. The combo of analog tone with his incredible digital controls really puts this in a league of its own. Both Chase Bliss pedals are on my ‘buy list’. Can’t wait to see what else he comes up with!

  8. This pedal just ooooooozes tone! So much variety – not just a one trick pony like a lot of pedals. This can probably replace just about any phaser on your board!

  9. The Wombstone and Warped Vinyl both just fascinate me in the wide variety of sounds and options that are at your disposal. It is a true testament to Joel and his love and passion for what he does. He is a true inspiration. I only hope I can afford to have these petals one day!

  10. By far the most versatile phaser pedal out there. The possibilities are endless. Countless hours will be spent having fun with this pedal and exploring great new sounds!!

  11. I am a proud owner of the warped vinyl and was eager to see what Joel’s next creation would be. Tried out my friends wombtone and it’s just as killer! Hope Joel has more stuff to give us gear nerds :D! Time to start saving the pennies to complete the pair sometime in 2015 for me I think.

  12. I’m not usually into phaser pedals…but this is a fantastic effect! Chase Bliss Audio blows me away with the quality, versatility and creativity of their products. I would love to have one of these!

  13. This is the best sounding pedal I’ve ever heard!! A friend of mine has one and I’m always so jealous when I even just see it! That red is beautiful on a board, and the sound… From heaven itself.

  14. All the reviews are great but i need to play this easter egg filled ohmlette of sonic intercourse for myself. Screw a phase 90, ive always hated phasers until ive discovered this gem and the earthquaker devices sexy babe. Thanks for changing my mind chase bliss! :)

  15. Would absolutely love one of these, I have been through over a dozen phasers and am never satisfied, this would likely end my search!

  16. I have a MXR Phase 99 right now and it’s amazing. The only thing I think could beat it is either a vintage mutron or a Wombtone.

  17. Awesome phase!

    I was in my local guitar shop today and saw this pedal, unfortunately locked behind glass so i couldnt try it out for myself so i decided to check if you guys had any information and there it was !

    Definitely a pedal i would use instead of my Trex Tremonti phaser.

  18. It looks like a great pedal with so many features packed in to such a small component. Would love to win the competition and get my hands on this!

  19. Chase Bliss Audio seems to make pedals that one can build entire songs around. It is great to know that there are companies like this around who are making pedals that can expand one’s imagination, as opposed to yet another useless fuzz pedal.

  20. how could you not want a pedal that comes in a box this beautifully crafted. If they spend that much time on the case, I can only imagine the attention to detail with the pedal. Hope I win!

  21. I have been reading your reviews since last summer and actually bought a pedal or two (Violetta Delay and Polytune 2) because of it. Great review as always, keep it up guys!!!

  22. I’m a huge fan of Phaser pedals, and this one is a must have! So many options and sounds. Not your typical phaser. I would absolutely love to have this. I would do a youtube review for sure!

  23. Can I just say I live modulation & I’m in love w/this pedal’s sounds, color & I want it?
    BTW, SLAMSTERDAMN is deep in preproduction so there’s nothinv to hear at my reverbnation page yet.

  24. Wahoo!
    Looks like an awesome pedal…
    Super versatile, why buying another phaser pedal?? :)
    will look good on my pedalboard… ^^

  25. Wow,
    this pedal is a great creativity tool ! I mean, when you’ve got the Phaser 90, it can dress your riff nicely, but that’s nothing compared to this one I guess.
    I’d love to see Chase Bliss build more pedals. The Warped Vinyl is also great !

  26. Wow, that pedal looks awesome – Maybe not the most newbie friendly, but with all those controls, it will definitely satisfy a control freak like me! I’ve never found use for a phaser before, but I think it’s because of the lack of control you have over it on most pedals. This will definitely be a game-changer

  27. that is one sharp looking pedal i must say! phasers are often quite basic so the wombtone defintely has my curiosity sticken! id love to win the badass!

  28. I don’t really have a “favorite” phaser. But this pedal has so many options I am really impressed that you could put all of them into one stpmpbox.

  29. I own the Chase Bliss Warped vinyl and it is the most impressive pedal I have ever used. I can not wait to try the wombtone!!!!

  30. Oh My GOODNESS,

    I have been Researching Phaser/Flanger type pedals for some time now, & I know that I want it. The dip switches Provide SO MUCH Flexibility :-). i LOVE THIS REVIEW, it tells me what I have been finding IS TRUE…..THIS IS THE HOLY GRAIL of Phasers available Today, HANDS DOWN. If there was EVER a Giveaway I WISH to Win on……. IT IS THIS ONE.
    Pick me, as I REALLY Want to WIN this Chase Bliss Audio Wobtone PedaL

  31. Chase Bliss must really pride themselves on having the absolute most features and tweak ability because damn this thing is packed

  32. LOVE LOVE LOVE the Warped Vinyl — it’s like a chorus, but completely re-imagined for tone nerds & tweakers like me. Love that Joel is expanding his line of modulation effects.. what’s next, a flanger? a delay? oh gosh, the possibilities!

  33. What a thorough review. I really enjoyed reading the review and watching the video. This is an awesome pedal. It’s features are incredible and very thorough. I love the dip switches as they allow a massive amount of tweakability. I have a Digitech hyper phase. It’s an ok pedal. Cheers

  34. First things first, Chase Bliss Audio makes some of the best pedals on the market. The Wombltone is no exception. Huge options, amazing tone and will surely mage even the most novice phaser user a huge fan.

  35. This pedal sounds absolutely beautiful and if by some kind of insane Christmas miracle I were to win one, I’d be ecstatic with kid-like enthusiasm and carefree joy. But really, I’m thrilled with where Chase bliss is going.

  36. Really interesting looking pedal, recreates the phaser pedal and looks so easy to use. New favourite after the vahlbruch, would love to give this a try.

  37. The build quality of these things looks amazing, and the fact that it’s all analog but still has all of those features blows me away. This is on my must-have list now.

  38. Chase Bliss really has figured out how to make an effect pedal tweak-able, without going overboard. If it really plays as good as described then my old phaser will be looking for a new home.

  39. This is far better than any other phaser on the market.It has more to offer than a one knobber set-up,allows you to find your own sound.Would love to pair it next to a Chase Bliss Warped Vinyl.

  40. Great review and it is truly amazing this phaser is
    loaded with soooo many variables for kick-ass sound!
    Definitely will be checking out what else this pedal
    company has up it’s sleeve.

  41. I’ve been working with pedals for a while now and I have to say Chase Bliss’ effects seem to be some of the most musical once out there! Great analog sounds, yet many features! Not something you see a lot, I can tell you that!

    Anyway, hope to be seeing more pedals from CB on short notice!!

  42. Wow, this pedal looks really awesome! I haven’t got the chance to play around with a lot of pedals, but I will tell you this.. The analog phaser sounds great! It would be really great for a present just around christmas.. I’m getting a whole guitar and pedal set for my group and would not mind having another pedal like this one!!!!

  43. I love everything about these Chase Bliss pedals. I hope I win, and if I don’t I hope whoever does win will be equally as happy as I would have been :D

  44. Great Phaser! Have never heard a phaser get almost vowel like sounds and this got close at one point. Build quality looks great as well.

  45. This would be my first phaser, but given the sounds in the video I think it would be a really great addition. Like Gabe said, very gooey

  46. Ooey gooey, thick and chewy, I just love a good phaser. And this Wombtone is the best that I’ve ever heard, wow! I already own several phasers, but it looks like it might just be time to replace them all.

  47. Most awesome, wobbliest phaser ever!
    Too bad that the stage selection is limited to 4 and 6, otherwise it would be more than perfect!

  48. Joel is one of the few pedal builders really pushing the parameters of what’s possible in a stomp box. I love that he’s carving a new path and not relying on updates/clones of classic pedals. Pretty damn excited to see what he’s coming out with next.

  49. With all those control options I’m assuming its at least a week’s work of tweeking.
    Would be sick to add it to my board, awesomesauce!

  50. Not only does it looks sweet cosmetically, but the amount of tweaking you can do with this baby is insane! Love it. Want it. Need it.

  51. Not only does it come in a cool package, it sounds amazing. Added to my Pedal Genie queue. Should cover some psychedelic, funk and some EVH exploits!

  52. The Wombtone and the Empress are in a class above other phasers, in terms of versatility and features. Can’t wait to see whatever is next in the Chase Bliss line.

  53. This phaser is Klassy with a capital K. Its sounds induce an overwhelming amount of satisfaction to all 6 senses. One time there was this little white maltese puppy named Poppins that was so sad it would not eat its kibble. One day the wombtone sounds perked its little floppy ears. Poppins slowly started to change in demeanor and ate its kibble and grew into a great big Arctic Husky. This Husky now requests a organ or xylophone emulating guitar pedal from Chase Bliss.

  54. I’m more than capable with a soldering iron and I still want this and the warped vinyl, both sound amazing. Here’s hoping I win the give away.

  55. This is a great review and I think an even greater pedal! Been listening to video demos for a month on this thing, and I totally wanna add this to my pedal board!

  56. This is a very solid sounding analog phaser, with an insane amount of tweakability. I’ve seen the warped vinyl in person and they have incredible build quality. It looks as though the Wombtone has the same build quality. I look forward to adding these tones to my music.

  57. I want one sooo damn bad. Joel at chasebliss is so far ahead of the game… This and the warped vinyl truly are instant classics. There is so much versatility and so much passion pushed into this stomp box.

  58. I got a phase 90 when I was 12 years old because of the song breakout by foo fighters. I eventually sold it on eBay but I have missed having a phaser since. I could not begin to imagine the terrain the wombtone can explore with so much tweakability, and there are so many parameters of phase. If the phase 90 controls 2 dimensions of phase, this thing controls 4; interstellar style. Good work chaseblissaudio.

  59. I love how crazy and versatile the chasebliss audio products are! I’m not normally a fan of chorus and phasers, but Chase has changed my mind. I’d love to own one of his products someday in the near future.

  60. Finally, a pedal with so many parameters to tweak on a pedal, and a PHASER for that matter! I personally love what chaseblissaudio is about, and how the owner/maker of the company is so in touch with his brother’s tragic accident, and how he’s used that as a drive for the greater good of pedals. In regards to other phasers, I haven’t considered any other ones to try at all, besides the one on the Strymon Mobius that I owned for a few months. But this one is too rad, no comparison. If there were any other pedals I would like to see reviewed…A great comparison between compressor pedals would be incredibly helpful for players who are on the fence of which compressor to buy and why they can differ. My favorite is the Barber Tone Press, yet the Keeley C4 is awfully popular and the Strymon OB.1 has had some great reviews. Thanks guys! I hope to have this in my quiver of pedals!

  61. Anyone who puts that much detail, usability and craftsmanship, not mention passion, into a pedal has my vote. Yes, it will be mine.

  62. I really like this pedal and the company that makes it. So glad to see people making something new, not just another copy of an vintage pedal.

  63. If it’s half as good as the Warped Vinyl then it’s amazing. Joel Korte is by far one of the coolest pedal makers out there right now.

  64. Love the design of these pedals! So much innovation and thought had gone into it. I can’t wait to have the opportunity to play one!

  65. This phaser is awesome! It’s a simple design, very easy controls,. The tone is awesome and the amount of things and control you get over the overall sound is amazing.

    The style is hot, and the build is quality.

    It’s one bad phaser.

  66. I recently picked up a warped vinyl from chase bliss audio and Ive gotta say I went from a guy who isn’t a fan of chorus pedals to a guy who cant imagine his board without a warped vinyl. Ive spent hours dialing this baby in and playing with it. And I know that the wombtone is the same. This pedal is the MECA of phaser pedal, the head honcho, the big cheese coming in with a phaser sound with all the ambient relaxing tones reminding you of the most peaceful time in your life. The wombtone delivers depth and texture like no other pedal I’ve heard. Its not just adding a phase, its adding emotion to your sonic landscape. I want to get one of these on my board right away. I can’t wait to run my guitar, bass, keys, vocals, or literally anything through this bad boy.

  67. I love phasers and this one has got to be the ultimate! I’ve heard demos and the extensive controls make it capable of so much of variety. I would use it on keyboards, bass and guitar!

  68. Wow, that thing is UBER-versatile. So many knobs and switches, but they all do something useful! Rare to see so much careful thought go into the design of a pedal. So many manufacturers add bells and whistles just for the sake of marketing gimmicks. However, with all the parameters on offer here I’m sure that everyone could get their own personal, unique sound out of the Wombtone.

  69. A lot of possibilities with this amazing pedal!My mouth is already watering dreaming about having it on my pedal board!mmmmm,,,,tasty!

  70. more control than anything on the market as far as phasors go,so many swithches yet ease of use,almost like getting a synth in a pedal fx

  71. This pedal would be an awesome Christmas gift and I am anxious to get this on my pedal board. To win this thing is kinda like the BB gun on ” A Christmas Story” , without shooting my eye out.

  72. As the proud owner of a Warped Vinyl pedal from Chase Bliss Audio, I speak from experience about how impressively diverse Joel’s designs are. I love how many features he packs into such a small enclosure, and the ModuShape technology is just the cherry on top. Oh, did I mention they sound amazing? I have a hard time turning my Warped Vinyl off, even if it’s not modulating anything, with the signal set all the way to “dry” it just fattens up my guitar tone with analog goodness! The Wombtone seems to be every bit as lush as it’s predecessor and would be a welcome addition to my pedalboard.

  73. i saw this pedal a few months back and didnt remember who made it. i am quite interested in checking this bad boy out. ive never tried anything besides a 1 knobbed phaser from behringer. it was fun but this thing looks like a ton of fun! looks cool too! add a little color to my line as well ;) hey whats wrong with thinking something looks cool?

  74. Chase Bliss are one to watch, I cant wait to see what else will be appearing from them. This pedal does seem quite amazing!

  75. It’s been said you can judge a book by its cover, but just take a look at this awesome pedal with so many presets and knobs!!! I WANT IT

  76. Sounds like the ultimate pedal for ALL phase type sounds,
    I like the fact that you can customize the sounds to your own
    Making, which could steer you better to your desired tone.

  77. I would love to win this pedal for my daughter being how times are tough and I can’t afford to buy any new equipment for my daughter this holiday season.

  78. Not very experienced with a phaser, myself, definitely on the list of pedals I want to stick on my rig. Cheers for turning me on to this, looks worth checking out, for sure.

  79. I just bought a new Gibson and this pedal would make it all the better I would love to just use this and shred all night long.

  80. Wow. Pretty amazing that they were able to pack so much shaping capabilities into the pedal. Scoop and swish seem plenty clear. Nice job with the demo Gabe – keep em coming.

  81. Wow. Great looking pedal. Way more complicated than my Phase 90. Looks like getting this pedal will require some study time with the manual.

  82. That guy at Chase Bliss Audio is nothing short of genius… I think he will come up with something totally unheard of and never been done before next – imagine what he’ll do with delay – and reverb!

  83. I’ve been following Chase Bliss Audio on instagram since the warped vinyl first popped up. I’m blown away by the detail in their pedals. Would love to add it to the collection!

  84. This is surely the most versatile phaser pedal I’ve ever seen, not to mention the classic/analog/vintage sounds you can have from it. I think one of the coolest features is the left preset (vibe-like).

  85. What a versatile pedal, the amount or switches and knobs alone on one pedal, but then expression and MIDI control also, fantastic.

  86. Best phaser I ever came across. I could easily replace my Mobius with a few of his pedals (price wouldn’t be the same though !)

  87. Incredible pedal. I have tried it, and all you prefered phaser can do, you can do the same and more with Chase Bliss Audio Wombtone. Sound really awnesome.

  88. this pedal is truly phenomenal
    I didn’t know this manufacturer before I was aware of this pedal
    you can get all tones that you need!

    love this pedal…!

  89. I NEED this pedal – tried most others, specifically for pedal steel- never enough control/flexibility to get what I want. This sounds amazing, looks like what I’ve been waiting for.

  90. This thing sounds so smooth. I love how tweak-able it is, you can find any type of phase sound you could ever dream of, amazing pedal! Thanks guys.

  91. Sounds interesting, especially the waveform shape options. Can you blend the level of wet and dry signal? Great name for a pedal.

  92. This could definitely replace my small stone nano. Hah. This might replace my entire modulation setup. Awesome pedal. Hope I win!

  93. Sourds like a great phaser!! Digitally controlled analog pedals are definitively the way to do it and offer best tone and more control, would love to get one of these!!

  94. I’ve never really owned a dedicated phaser pedal before, but this looks interesting with all the parameters. It changes the way you approach phasers.

  95. Very innovative. Lots of options with this pedal. I also love the tap tempo. Cosmetically one of the best looking pedals I have seen in a while!

  96. The Chase Bliss Wombtone sounds like the best phaser I have heard of, I would love to try this out with my synths and organ too.

  97. Wow, I was impressed with the Warped Vinyl chorus/vibrato pedal; as well this pedal is impressive. Oh so many possibilities of tone and sound! Even with just the basics, but adding more parameters, whew!

  98. This pedal would keep a dweller from Maine in the entire winter just pining for those phase sounds and I too live for the empire strikes back. The best hands down….

  99. I’ve been thinking lately that a phaser would be nice. I read up on Chase Bliss’ Warped Vinyl a few months ago and thought it sounded very nice. This pedal would be nice to have.

  100. I really want one of these. My favorite is the EVH Phase 90 because of the switch to Script Mode, but I think this pedal may be the holy grail f phasers and set the bar very high for the standard of modulation pedals!

  101. I stumbled across the Wombtone a few weeks ago as I was browsing “Potential Phase pedal” options for my board. Chase Bliss Audio is Certainly a Finalist in my elimination process. I am CONVINCED that this is the Phaser for me. THEREFORE… pick me to win as I would use it!!! Thanks for the Review :-)

  102. great sounding pedal! the look is kind of boring but it sounds like its doing the ol’ phaserrr job.

    would definitely love to give it a try

  103. Hey,
    this pedal is almost as cool as the Warped Vinyl from the same brand.
    The sound is wicked !! Maybe the best Phaser pedal, yeah !

  104. Super rad phaser from one of the best up and coming guys in the pedal business! This pedal is truly a landmark in music technology, combining a digital plethora of options with pure analog tone. I can’t wait to own my first Chass Bliss pedal!

  105. you need a few very tweakable pedals for some fun and bliss; i just bought my first phaser in a long time and it’s cool, but nothing like this monster of a pedal

  106. Joel builds awesome pedals. If this thing is anything like as good as the Warped Vinyl it will be incredible. Top build quality and lovely unique sounds.

  107. Nice stuff. How many hours would a comprehensive demo of all the controls have taken? You’re certainly not gonna get “I can’t get it tuned just right so I’ll try another pedal” problem here.
