As other people have mentioned, there is somewhat of a volume drop in 4-stage mode. I believe it is actually a PERCEIVED volume drop since that mode has a darker tonal character than the others. I've found that turning up the depth and resonance (feedback) knobs help to remedy the volume dip. The 4-stage mode doesn't equal the tone of my Small Stone or Phase 90. On the other hand, it isn't embarrassed by the sound of those two pedals, either. I don't hear any volume drop with any of the other modes.
My favorite modes are 10-stage, 12-stage, Fall, Rise and Step. They are worth the cost of the pedal alone, IMO. There are a wealth of swirling, hypnotic synth-like tones within those settings (especially the last 3) that you will never get out of any other phase shifter that I know of. We aren't talking about gimmicky, cool-for-a-minute sounds, either.
So, if you want a straight ahead vintage sounding phaser and don't need or want a lot of features, you're better off with a Small Stone or Phase 90 (Script Logo). If you are in the market for a much more versatile and adventurous-sounding phase shifter, then test drive "The Green Machine". More like 4.5 stars.
The pedal can also get a passable Univibe sound on the 4-stage setting, although it does color your sound somewhat and is not what I would call "transparent".
Not the most popular phase pedal among the cognoscenti, but as reliable performer nonetheless.
I got this as a gift (not from Amazon), and it was my first Boss pedal. I was a little worried about the rumors of volume loss, thinking that with the rest of my pedalboard, it might be worse than some were saying, but I'm more or less getting absolutely no volume loss from this thing, plus it is absolutely amazing. The step function alone is worth buying this pedal for. It is so strange, and one of the funnest effects I've played with in a while. Even the rise and fall functions, when you get them going really fast, are outrageous to play with, and as someone who was a little hesitant about Boss in general, being the snotty boutique pedal buyer than I am, this has absolutely helped me understand why Boss is such a standard on most pedalboards.
