Subtle yet infinitely useful, this is a powerful tone tool in a pint-sized package!
When Guyatone first began plans for the Mighty Micro series, they polled professional musicians in Japan to see what they felt would be the most useful pedal for a working guitarist. The answer was what would become the SSm5 Sonic Shaper!
Based on the original Guyatone EX-2 Exciter model (never sold in the USA), the SSm5 is a harmonic booster pedal that, by emphasizing specific frequencies, can offer the guitarist a broad tonal palette. The key to the SSm5 is the Shape control, which adjusts the harmonic emphasis. Using the SSm5, a guitarist can tune in specific frequencies to stand out in a band mix without raising their volume level. The SSm5 can also be used to emulate an acoustic guitar tone, or simply as a great-sounding clean boost by shutting off the Color control and Setting Shape to the center position.
Based on Guyatone's award-winning Micro Series effects, the Mighty Micros offer professional-grade features and exceptional sound quality in an ultra-compact, lightweight chassis that is 33% smaller and 50% lighter than your average stompbox.
The Guyatone Mighty Micros offer many improvements and additional features that Guyatone users have demanded, all packed into a rugged enclosure that retains the same-sized footprint as the original Micro Series effects.
Designed for the professional, working musician, Guyatone Mighty Micros feature superior-grade component selection for improved sound quality. Adjustable internal Input Attenuators allow use with a variety of instrument or input signals. All Guyatone Mighty Micros are covered by a 3-year parts and labor warranty through the manufacturer.

Comments about Guyatone Mighty Micro Series SSm5 Sonic Shaper Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:
Well I don't do many reviews but this little box deserves it. OK, for years I have spent way too much money in overdrives, boosters, heads, and equalizers trying to find away to express the lead sound in my head. I wanted a pedal that could give my solo's a certain "voice", a separation from my rhythm sound without having to compromise. After 20 years of searching for a stomp box that gives me that sound I FINALLY found it, and let me tell you this thing is amazing. Originally it was a bit on the pricey side and I had resolved to not spending another dime looking and just working with I had. But then BAM!!, this little dude went on sale. I jumped. This is like taking your favorite EQ, light overdrive, and booster and combining them in a one amazing package. If you can't find a perfect tone to compliment your existing sound with this box then you're not trying hard enough. Now that can't live without it I have to buy another for a backup. I could get into details about its capabilities but trust me the overview for this thing is dead on. If you buy this you will not be disappointed.
