True bypass and reduced appreciable size.

UTILIZATION

Sensitivity adjustment (necessary to make the effect more intense and also for the determination of the effect depending on the output level of the guitar used) and a switch to activate the harmonic distortion that made tenfold.

SOUND QUALITY

MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE PEDAL CONNECTED ON A GUITAR (AND NOT A LOW)

The "BassBalls" spirit is there but the record is thin and acidic. Acute can be a shrill clear sound ... look totally prohibitive for me. Its saturated, the sound is okay even if a serious loss of bass is felt.

That said a "sweet spot" lies beneath the hood but it takes a long grind both internal trimpots that affect the filter frequencies (200Hz and 800Hz).

OVERALL OPINION

I highly recommend this version of the nano in favor of the original. I've owned both versions and was able to very accurately compared before giving my opinion.
The basic version has a completely chubby with a good foundation in the low and deadly voice side. I changed the pedal to access the knobs on top of the case for total flexibility ... formidable even if we drift to the noise!
I preferred this dynamic filter the famous Maxon AF-9 and no less famous MXR M-82.
In summary, it seems pretty obvious that the nano series is far from being a success. I have chosen to focus on the sound format (though my pedalboard is full!). Like the Small Clone or the Holy Grail, EHX embellished reality by announcing that nano versions of these classic offers the same performance. Tip: run on the original version of the Bassballs!
