    Hi- I'd like to save a few bucks, but I can't find full specs on the Russian-made Bassballs, Big Muff Pi, or Small Stone. Can anyone help me out?

    I don't mind if the Russian stuff has a little more plastic.

    I have heard that all(?) Russian EH pedals are now true bypass. Is this correct?

    I think I recall someone saying that some, or all, of the Russian effects do not have a DC power jack. If this is the case, the decision will be easy.

    The difference in price for the three pedals is around $50-$60 total, which is a significant amount of money since I only play about once a month.

    Please advise. Thanks!
