    Let's hope this is the start of the miniaturization of all those mammoth EH pedals. What I wouldn't give for a Nano Mistress!

    do these nano pedals have all the sonic goodness of their real-estate hoggin brethren? If so, what's going to happen with the new Little Big Muff?

    I was hoping for a nano micro-synth. I wonder if they plan to continue shrinking them.

    Different animals. If I'm not mistaken the nano muff will be very similar to the original "Muff Fuzz" which is more of an overdrive/distortion circuit, and 1 half of the Double Muff. The Little Big Muff is actually a full blown Big Muff circuit in a smaller enclosure.

    This is a great step for EHX. I'm happy to see them make this move. It shows that they're paying attention.

    It appears as if the LBM was an introduction to this new line of nano effects. The new Q-Tron, Pulsar, and Clone Theory seem to be in the LBM style housing.

    The LBM, along with the new Q-Tron, Clone Theory, Metal Muff (not the MM w/ Top Boost), and Stereo Pulsar are all part of the "Micro" series, it seems. The "Nano" series is even smaller. :AOK

    Thank you for the correction :) . Do you have any other info about these new effects?

    Ditto.
    Now if Peterson would build more substantial tuners, Fulltone would up the Customer Service and Way Huge would fire up production again...:p

    No really, it IS very cool to see a company pay attention to what the customers want...particularly when it means they have to abandon or change the way they have been doing it for decades!

    Does anyone have any scoop on the Echolution pedal?
    Sorry, my delay junkie habit is showing, but that caught my attention.

    Seems like EH pedals are just like bags of potato chips. Just put them in the microwave and watch them shrink.

    Not yet. I've been trying to get a hold of the new price list for the store I teach at for a few days (mostly because I want to order the Polyphase and the Clone Theory!), but I haven't had any luck. :^(

    Where's the new 2880 + expansion unit in the same size box as the standard big EH pedals??? Just kidding, but wouldn't that be cool?!?! With the expansion footswitches along the bottom in a row... will never happen!

    I wouldn't say that EXH hasn't been listening to customers. They did introduce TB into all their effects a number of years back.

    It's good to see them adopting a more professional look for their pedals though. The old "thrown together" style, which worked and did have some charm, has become really impractical and definitely hit them in the sales department. Hopefully they'll fix the noise issues of some of their pedals as well!

    Man I am totally blown away. I have always liked the EHX stuff, now that it fits on my board I might have some gas again. I probably will sell my small stone if the nano small stone sounds exactly the same (I like the volume drop, it helps with dynamics). Man, I am glad I don't have a girlfriend.

    Yeah - A Nano Mistress would be sweet. It would be nice if they'd up the gauge on their sheet metal a couple notches...they've always been a bit flimsy.

    Does anyone have experience with the LBM? How does it differ from and MXR Micro-Amp or a SD PU Booster? It's just a clean boost right?

    Yup. I've had many and some are a straight clean boost and some are a clean boost with a bit of a sparkle added like a clean boost mixed with a light treble boost.

    It's great.

    Damn... and I just bought a Q-Tron in the old Volkswagen-sized model. :jo
