OVERVIEW

Somehow this little rock manages to roll itself around nearly every musical style.

The Electro-Harmonix Nano Small Stone Phase Shifter is everything you love about the original Small Stone in a smaller, die-cast package! It's an effects pedal that delivers full-bodied, three dimensional phasing to add a special swirl to every musical style. Blues boys and babes dig its rapidly rotating speaker effect while Country players use it to add seasoning to their chicken' pickin'. Metal-heads and Industrialists dig the Stone's jet plane woosh. No matter what your musical pleasure, the Nano Small Stone Phase Shifter is guaranteed to increase it!

The rate control adjusts the speed of the phasing sweep (clockwise rotation for a faster rate). Snapping the color switch up carves into the frequency spectrum, hollowing out the sound. Fundamentals and harmonics glide in and out for an extremely pronounced shifting effect. Return the color switch to the down position and the fullness returns. In the non-color position, with the sweep speed at minimum, the effect is not as strong and if the slowest sweep is desired the color switch should be in the up position.

FEATURES
  • Highly adjustable phase shift effect
  • Rate control
  • Color switch
  • Die cast casing with rounded corners
  • Small size conserves pedal board space

Change your sound for the better with high-quality EH effects. Order now!

SPECIFICATIONS
  • US96DC-200BI 9VDC power supply optional.

Great pedal.
I was a long time user of the "traditional chassis" Small Stone. Unfortunately, the old workhorse had to be put out to stud. After briefly dabbling in other phasers (MXR Phase 100, Boss PH-2) I remembered why I loved my Small Stone so much in the first place. It is, quite simply, the best phaser out there. Not only do you get great traditional phase sounds when the color switch is "down," you have an unbelievably thick phase option when the switch is "up." I have never used another phaser (including stuff I've borrowed and played in stores but never owned) that is cabaple of the thickness of "up" position small stone phasing.
I was really, really skeptical of buying something from the EHX Nano line. I am huge proponent of EHX and I own a lot of there stuff. But I had yet to have an experience with any of the Nano pedals that even came close to the high standard of quality that I expect from EHX. The Nano Small Stone is sole exception to the rule for the Nano line. It sounds exactly like the original and it is solidly built. I actually like the smaller casing.
It only does phasing, but dang, it does phasing well. As mentioned again, you get great traditional phase sounds plus the soupy "up" position sounds that you can only get with a Small Stone. The pedal isn't "cheap" per se, but it is definitely comeptively priced. My last Small Stone lasted for ten years without a single problem, before becoming the victim of a freak electrical accident. All of my EHX gear is dang-near bullet proof. So you're definitley making a one-time investment.

OK...third review....I like the sound of this unit...simple and straight forward. But my 1st unit died...broken switch....EHX wanted to charge me shipping to repair it...but MF saved the day and just sent me a new one. So the current unit (2nd one) lasts 11 months and now has a phasing hiss, even with no input signal!! EHX wants 12 buckaroos upfront to ship back to me after i send it to them at my expense...another 10?? So for 22 on a cheap item, I am done. Not worth the bother. These guys have no warranty if it costs 30% of the price of the item to get it replaced.....gonna find another phaser that has some staying power! and keeps on working!

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano Small Stone Phase Shifter Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I originally wanted to get an MXR Phase 90, but had heard good things about Electro-Harmonix, so I decided to take a gamble and ordered the Small Stone. I like having the "Color" switch on the unit as well because it adds another sound option which the Phase 90 doesn't have. Additionally, it's compact so it fits well on any board without taking up too much room.

      Great Pedal for the money. It's simple to use and sounds great. The color switch helps get those deep phaser tones. For a simple, good quality, compact phaser this one does the trick.

        Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano Small Stone Phase Shifter Guitar Effects Pedal:

        I bought this pedal to take the place of my vintage unit... The old wedge with no LED. My old pedal is getting a bit temperamental in it's old age and I am building a new pedalboard for a new amp and need the space. Maybe I'm just getting old but I think the old one sounds better. This one seems to sweep a bit higher on the top end. Not saying the new one sounds bad, just the old one sounds better.

          This was voted one of the top pedals in the world and for just over 70 its better to get than a cheaper or more expensive pedal
          It has one switch and one knob that its thats all you need to effectiveness and hypnotic magic it actually brings out alot of my mult effects tones even more

          use in sublime combo with wah sounds
          add to chorus or all 3
          overdrive/distort if you wish

          compression even better

          My duo partner and band mate has had the original small stone for years and years and it finally started to have some intermittent problems so he bought a nano small stone. I was so impressed I had to get one for myself. So easy to use. One knob! Extreme example of using the KISS principle.

            Like its older bigger brother from way back when. I am thrilled with its sound, which is exactly as expected. I had the original about 25 years ago, not sure how I lost it. The nicest thing is that this one takes the regular power adapter rather than the old 1/8th phono plug.

              Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano Small Stone Phase Shifter Guitar Effects Pedal:

              I wrote about this a few months ago...my comments about the sound still stand: easy to use, good phase effect, would be nice to have a level pot...but overall good. Well 3 months later, the switch broke; when i looked inside, the screws to remove the bottom plate stripped...had to engage in some technical wizardry to get the thing open. The interior sturdiness does not inspire much confidence. Anyway, called EH, they said I needed to send it to them (ten) and then there was a 2 week turnaround, then they would send back (charge me twelve for return shipping). So, seems pricey to get a pedal under warranty that costs around seventy . As always MF comes to the rescue...the morale is the pedal sounds good, build quality..meh..MF a great company...I'm pleased.

                Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano Small Stone Phase Shifter Guitar Effects Pedal:

                I wasn't sure if EH could cram all of the sonic goodness of the regular Small Stone into that little Nano Series enclosure, but they did! I have an MXR "script logo" Phase 90. It is a great sounding phaser, but the Small Stone has always sounded more smooth, liquid and musical to my ears. Plus, the toggle switch in the "up" position gives you really funky auto wah-like tones; a feature you don't get with the Phase 90. Both pedals are well made, the same compact size and within the same price range (although, the "script" reissue is going to run you more than the regular Phase 90). The MXR is more robust with its thicker, heavier case. On the other hand, the Small Stone is true bypass. A tough call! But if you can only buy one, my vote goes to the Small Stone.

                What a great sounding Phaser

                Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano Small Stone Phase Shifter Guitar Effects Pedal:

                Great sounding, well made & reasonable priced. You can't go wrong. Buy one.
                I first plugged it into the front of the amp with no other effects and I heard a bunch of familiar tones from my younger days. It's very lush, very low noise. the color switch in the down position yields a typical phase effect (very lush). In the up position, the effect is much stronger, great for clean to slight break up tones. It makes your guitars sound huge, It's the kind of pedal that stays on all night. I prefer this pedal to any of the MXR models.
                It's going to live in my smoke free home studio always plugged in, the battery removed. So it's going to live a good life. But it looks & feels really strong. There's 1 knob, one DTDP switch & a footswitch, there's not a lot to go wrong with it. I'd gig with it without a back up.
                This price for such a great sounding effect that players will keep on all night is very reasonable.

                Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano Small Stone Phase Shifter Guitar Effects Pedal:

                Very nice analog phaser sounds in the color down position. A little peircing in the color up position. I'm glad EH finally have some smaller die-cast pedals out. And it's true bypass, and can be run off a normal boss style 9volt adapter. I was VERY suprised by what 1 knob, and a toggle switch could do. Smooth a silk slow phase sounds, and turn the rate dial to almost max and get some weird ring modulator sounds too. And there's a good amount of play in-between those sounds too.

                While the full sized Small Stone is wicked famous, it is also notorious in the bass community for its annoying volume drop. Fortunately this is not the case with its little brother. Great tracking on bass, simple to use, very little volume drop, solid as a brick, takes up no almost space, and for the price it's the best phaser you can get for bass guitar, even giving the infamous MXR Phase-100 a run for its money!

                Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano Small Stone Phase Shifter Guitar Effects Pedal:

                First and foremost, this pedal won`t cause any significant loss in your low end and it`ll still retain your tone to a nice degree - the problem here really is finding a substantial use for this pedal in any situation, let alone a band situation if you`re a bassist. It adds a nice liquid-like layer to your tone and can be used a bit like an auto-way/envelope filter which is cool for the occasional slap riff, but overall it doesn`t give you anything substantial like a chorus, fuzz, etc... If you have a specific need for a phaser or need something for ambiance then this is cool, otherwise I really suggest borrowing one to see if your thing. Overall it`s a very sturdy, good sounding pedal, but it`s not for every bassist.

                Small Stone vs. Phase 90

                from Woodbury, PA

                Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano Small Stone Phase Shifter Guitar Effects Pedal:

                I have been thinking about buying the small stone or the MXR phase 90 for about 2 months now, and I'm so glad I went with this. I have been looking on the net about the Phase 90 (how it sounds) and some of my friends have it, but the small stone is smaller and better sounding then the phase 90. With the color switch off it sounds almost like the phase 90, but with it on it gets some crazy phaser sounds. If i had to buy a phaser pedal again, i would 101% go with this.

                  Comments about Electro-Harmonix Nano Small Stone Phase Shifter Guitar Effects Pedal:

                  The name should say enough. This guy rocks!! Great little pedal to include in your board. Awesome sounds this produces and love the switch on it making you go from cleaner tones to raunchier, more syrupy in one flick. Definitely would recommend to others
