I stopped by the local Starving Musician in Berkeley to try out their latest shipment of Electro-Harmonix pedals. Here's my reviews of what pedals they had in stock! Among the bunch were: Nano Bassballs Sounds just like the original funky twin filter. After A/B'ing them, they seemed to be about the same. Why would you buy the old one after trying the new one? Stereo Pulsar I didn't have the original to A/B this one with, but it's definitely quite the quirky pedal. I found a few odd tremolo settings that I liked, but nothing practical for my use. Overall, a definite recommendation for those into experimental music (it has a lot of weird options, including square-wave tremolo, and variable wave adjustments). Seems to work fine on bass frequencies, too. Micro Q-Tron I didn't have the original to A/B this one with, but it's exactly what I hoped it to be - funky, smooth, and full of bassy goodness! The Low-pass and Band-pass filters seem to kill the low end, though. As for the High-pass, it works perfectly fine. Maybe it was just the amp I used? Otherwise, great pedal for funk. I might add one to my board one of these days for fun. The High-pass mode also seems to boost the low end. Nano Small Stone I used to own the original, and this one's a definite improvement. Slightly different tone than the original, but much better on bass! They corrected the "volume drop" issue, and now you can hear it work in its full glory. I think the tonal difference that I seem to be hearing is actually due to that correction. I took this one home, but I think I'm going to return it... I've realized that as awesome as this phase shifter is, I'm more of a "full and lush chorus" kind of guy, and not so much a "lush swoosh" fan. And what will I return it for? Nothing yet. But... I just found this announcement on the EHX MySpace: http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?f...&MyToken=c7fed5c3-a6e1-40ca-b98b-7a9b4f5d1ff3 The Stereo Clone Theory is finally shipping, and powerful chorus sounds will soon be MINE!
