The pedal in Question is the Electro Harmonix BassBalls. I have the old school NYC big box version and the black Russian version. I did a shootout at one point and they sounded identical (to me). I have the NYC version on my board for space reasons, because it's the smallest footprint. It's the only pedal I have had on every bass pedalboard I've ever used. I love it. I guess it's the simplicity of it, and the quirky fuzzy distortion switch that make it right for me. It was one of my first bass effects, and I don't see myself upgrading... Until I came across the nano version for cheap. I have heard (usually with Big Muffs) that the nano versions sound just like the big box pedals. I could use the space on a crowded board. Should I get a third BassBalls? Also, to those who have done the EHX big box vs nano shootouts, how do the smaller pedals fare?
