Sitek Phasia

A multi-stage phaser with tap tempo, selectable waveforms, and more.

Sitek Guitar Electronics introduces a new addition to their line of "Sound Muses" pedals. Phasia is a multi-stage OTA-based Phaser with a versatile feature set. It combines an all-analog moving filter section and a modern, tap-tempo controllable LFO that can go from stationary and resonant to fast and swirly.

Alongside 4 easy and intuitive controls, Phasia offers a choice of 4, 5 or 6 filter stages affecting the overall voicing and style of phasing effect. The pedal has a three way toggle LFO Shape switch to select between three different waveforms: hypertriangular, sine and triangular, which affects the character of modulation The Feedback control allows you to dial in anything from warm vintage sweeps to vibrant resonant phase tone. You can stretch the sonic possibilities even more with the Symmetry knob which provides a whole range of unique tones. All of these features make Phasia a comprehensive modulation effect.

The pedal is complemented by its original artwork and beautiful Oceanic Cerulean Blue enclosure finish.

The emotional wallop of the acoustic guitar sometimes flies under the radar. Even if you mostly play electric, here are some things to consider about unplugging.

I have a love-hate relationship with acoustic guitars. My infatuation with the 6-string really blasted off with the Ventures. That’s the sound I wanted, and the way to get it was powered by electricity. Before I’d even held a guitar, I knew I wanted a Mosrite, which I was sure was made of fiberglass like the surfboards the Beach Boys, Surfaris, and the Challengers rode in their off time. Bristling with space-age switchgear and chrome-plated hardware, those solidbody hotrod guitars were the fighter jets of my musical dreams. I didn’t even know what those old-timey round-hole guitars were called. As the singing cowboys Roy Rogers and Gene Autrey strummed off into the sunset, the pace of technology pushed the look and sound of the electric guitar (and bass) into the limelight and into my heart. Imagine my disappointment when I had to begin my guitar tutelage on a rented Gibson “student” acoustic. At least it sort of looked like the ones the Beatles occasionally played. Even so, I couldn’t wait to trade it in.
