    I happened to stumble upon a used VFE Mini Mu the other day at my local Mom & Pop for $100. I’ve always been curious about these but there isn’t a whole lot about them online. Anyway, I picked it up and I’m very impressed. It really nails that Mu-Tron/Qtron vibe and feel while being small, having normal power requirements and most importantly a master volume control! I think this may be my new favorite non-huge envelope filter! Anybody else out there ever try one?

    Didn't know about this one. Seems nice. I'll be following this thread.

    Here’s an obligatory gut shot.

    Had one, loved it, but as a home studio guy I love my EHX Q-Balls even more.

    $100 is a great price for that Mini-Mu, IMO. For me, it's tied with the Mu-FX Micro-Tron III and the Multivox Big Jam Spit Wah as the best compact 9v envelope filters I've ever owned. I still miss it.

    Filterfunk, did you ever mess with the internal trimmers when you had the Mini Mu?

    IIRC, the trimmer inside mine only brightened or dimmed the LED.

    That’s a feature that I wish would become standard. I can’t stand the ultra bright leds that are all the rage these days.
