The Micro Mai Tai™ is a beautiful take on a classic “script” era phaser. It has a warm and sloshy midrange sweep that encompasses everything we want in a great phaser and even travels a bit into “vibe” territory. As with any Tortuga effect, the Micro Mai Tai™ does not take anything away from your tone; it only enhances it, makes it bigger and simply more lush. So, go ahead and treat yourself to a Micro Mai Tai™.

All Tortuga Custom Shop Exclusive Models are only available directly from Tortuga Effects and are built periodically or upon request. If one is not currently available, please contact me to find out turnaround time.
