It also occurred to me that the 1590 BB would hold TWO of these boards stacked, so you *might* be able to do a cheapo Bi-phase.  
Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

Re: MXR phase 45
how does the EH small stone compare with these?

It's a bit different. I find it much more subtle than the 45, but somehow... sorry, can't explain, but they're both VERY nice Phasers!

the EH small stone is MUCH more versatile than the phase 45 (i have both a vintage SS and made a clone from RG's "Issue J" schematic posted i think at leper's site).  
the main thing of interest is the "color" switch on the small stone.  
it takes your standard "phase" device and can make it very extreme w/ the flip of the switch. in the other position it may sound a bit more like a phase90.  
the phase 45 is VERY subtle.  
more like a nice "phrasing" device (not intended to say "phasing").  
it adds a smooth, little overtone (of course, it's a phaser, so that's the slight effect you hear).  
the 45 kind of adds a nice, slight effect (rhythm guitar is useful here), but it's disappointing if you want something drastic.

Does anybody remember the EH Badstone? I think it was ment to be comparable to a phase 100. I had one of these for a while back in '79 at same time that I owned a Smallstone. Unfortunately the Badstone got ripped off. But as long as I had it, I never used the Smallstone... It sounded pretty good as I recall... almost chorus like. Never heard anybody else mention these.

Is it possible to add additional stages to the P45 to increase the phasing???
