EHX has resurrected the legendary Bad Stone Phase Shifter. With prices of 1970s’ vintage Bad Stones soaring, now is your chance to get a reissue that is faithful to the original circuit design and three-knob control layout, but features up-to-date enhancements for the modern player.

The Bad Stone delivers an incredible six stages of phase shifting plus a manual mode that lets the player freeze the phase. Its Rate knob controls the phase shifting speed which goes from a very slow swoosh to a rapid, oscillating warble. Feedback determines the depth of the phase effect and a toggle switch lets the user select Auto or Manual modes.

In addition to the die-cast package, other modern amenities include true bypass for maximum signal path integrity, an effect status LED and an AC jack that accepts an EHX9.6DC power supply.

Quick Specs:

  • A faithful reincarnation of the legendary 1970s Bad Stone with carefully selected updates for the modern player
  • The Bad Stone was the first phase shifter to employ variable feedback and features an awesome six stages of phase shifting

Electro-Harmonix announces the resurrection of the highly sought after Bad Stone Phase Shifter Pedal

NAMM SHOW, ANAHEIM, CA, January 22, 2015 – With prices of 1970s’ vintage Bad Stones soaring and a steady stream of guitarists asking EHX Founder and President, Mike Matthews, to reissue the pedal, that project was given the green light. The newly minted Bad Stone is faithful to the original circuit design and three-knob control layout, but now comes in a compact nano-sized package designed to appeal to space conscious users.

The Bad Stone was the first phase shifter to employ variable feedback and features six stages of phase shifting plus a manual mode that lets the player freeze the phase. Its Rate knob controls the phase shifting speed which, in classic Bad Stone fashion, goes from a very slow swoosh to a rapid, oscillating warble. Feedback determines the depth of the phase effect and a toggle switch lets the user select Auto or Manual modes. In Manual mode the Manual Shift knob tunes the frozen phase shift sound.

In addition to the die-cast package, other modern amenities were added. These include true bypass for maximum signal path integrity when the effect is not engaged, an LED to indicate the effect status and an AC jack that accepts a standard EHX9.6DC power supply. The pedal will ship with a nine volt battery and carries a U.S. List Price of $94.79. It will be available in February 2015.
