Having read through some of the crazy posts on the "Japanese Guitar Effects Book" over at Aron's site it's made me think that perhaps one shouldn't refer to "Fuzz" boxes in case it offends the Fuzzywuzzies or....perish the thought - someone else on their behalf, which it seems to me is the basis on which PC claptrap was built up!
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.

Could a through-zero phaser even exist? And would it make a difference? The number of audible notches produced by flanging depends on the amount of delay applied, whereas in the case of phasers the number of notches is constant - only their frequency location changes. In the case of TFZ, reducing the delay produces a virtual whole-signal cancellation effect as one crosses over the zero-point, and more audible notches as the delay time increases.  
In the case of phasing, sweeping the control elements would never alter the amount of phase shift applied, merely where it starts. Since the effect intensity is partly a function of the number of notches *heard*, sweeping "high" enough will make some of the notches produced (and let's work from the assumption that it is at least an 8-stager generating 4 notches) inaudible. From a practical standpoint, that means that as it descends from its highest sweep-point, it may go from maybe 2 audible notches to 3 then 4 as it sweeps down. That *sort of* mimics what happens to a flanger, but not quite.  
Am I missing something, or is there a tug on my lug that I overlooked?
