Don't call me "honeymunch", rose-colored glasses.

:rant: All I'm sayin' is that when prophecysound were buildin' 'em, they were $475 or somethin'. :snax:

Also, given Mu-Tron's recent track record, people'll soon be flippin' 'em for close to (if not more than) the price of a vintage Bi-Phase. :idk:

I've tried a few of the minifoogers, but I've found them a little hit and miss. The Chorus sounded awful, yet I'm temped by the flanger. Has anyone tried both?

So the sale is finally live (after >10 minutes of continuous crashing)...did anyone scratch their bi-curious itch?

(also, you gotta love that it's 2018 and Mu-Tron refuses to take in-focus photos of their stuff. Does no one in the office have a tablet or smartphone?)

Out of focus is, IMO, intentional. Don't want that crappy graphic design to be depicted accurately. :cool:

(Still 13 left in stock. Grab now before people try resellin' 'em for upwards of $1K.)

I'm not sure, but I think the black version is what's limited, and that they'll be releasing a light blue one afterwards, like the one in this post:

It was my understanding that they were going to do 50 in black, but that may have changed based on demand. I can't find it, but I think they said on IG that the blues wouldn't be coming "for a while."

Is the problem really with the graphics, or is it the uninspired black-and-white look? I get that it's a nod to the original prototype, but b&w is so boring. Purple text on a silver background with chrome knobs would've been really sharp.

Yeah, the problem really is with the graphics. That black & white prototype looks fine. :)*

I'm not even sure the new "Limited Edition Black" is a nod to the prototype. Is it? :idk:

I've seen an old Bi-Phase which looks more purplish than the usual blue. :love: Probably just an anomaly though.

There were 2 images shared, when they announced it (the reissue mockup and the 70s prototype), so it looks that way.

They're definitely out there. I'm not sure if it was limited to a a single batch or not, but some of the Bi-Phase & Flanger units absolutely vary in terms of hue. It isn't simply a matter of fading over time.
