If you love mini pedals, then Tone City is the brand for you. Their range of high-quality minis is a perfect way to get all your basic effects onto one easy-to-use, easy-to-move board.
For an example of their incredible engineering then look no further than the Summer Orange Phaser. With its simple layout and charming retro aesthetic, you won’t believe just how much phaser is packed into this little orange box.
It’s easy to let your effects get out of control. We’ve all done it. One moment you’re filling out your sound with a little bit of reverb, and the next you’re carting around two tube-screamers, a delay, a chorus, and a wah-wah all to play one short set.
Pedals like the Summer Orange are a godsend to modern guitarists because they minimise worry. It’s not just about pedal-board real estate – although that is a major concern – but making sure the sound works as a whole. It’s all well and good for a pedal to give you lots of control, but sometimes too much choice can be a burden.
The beauty of the Summer Orange is that it delivers warm and authentic phaser tones on pretty much any setting. True, it can’t emulate every phaser that’s ever existed, but it can provide a range of great sounds that are ridiculously easy to control.
All that being said, it is worth noting that, like all Tone City Pedals, the Summer Orange does not run on batteries, so you will need to bring a 9V DC Power Supply.
If you’re a real pedal enthusiast then maybe you’ll want a phaser that offers complete control, but for most of us mere mortals, this pedal really is everything you need from a phaser.
