This video lesson focuses on the phaser. A phaser works by mixing a copy of the guitar signal with the original after delaying the copy signal for a few fractions of a second, causing a 'phase shift' between the two signals. The length of this pause is gradually varied over time, resulting in a 'sweeping effect. Watch the video to hear how this sounds.
