I have three: the first Electro Harmonix Small Stone, the reissue handwired
MXR Phase 90, and the Moogerfooger MF-103. The Small Stone is very simple,
few controls, and nearly always sounds 'right'. The MXR is very good as
well, but I'm probably going to sell it soon as I have too many, and the
ground it covers is easily achievable with the Small Stone. And then
there's the Moogerfooger, which has an insanely huge range encompassing all
usable and unusable phase sounds, and has CV inputs as well. If I had to
choose to hold onto only one of these, it would be the Small Stone, only
because it is exactly what I want most of the time.

I did a rough comparison between the Electro Harmonix and the MXR here:

It's not great, but you can definitely hear the differences.
