Electro-Harmonix Small Stone Mk4
This is a phaser, I do not know how to explain what was done, but the Net is full of sound samples and vidos!

Analog pedals, like almost all the Electro Harmonix Small Stone that has existed since the dawn of time (unless it is the 1970s) and is, of APRS mark on TRS many recordings available.

Built in mtal, trs solid appearance, heavy enough not to walk at least kick and construction proved very simple and it suffers only from a painting trs s'caille fragile the slightest shock (no less serious view trs) and a non-diet standard mini-jack, which is much agaant. That said, not a mortal, you can also put the batteries.

UTILIZATION

The configuration is very simple: a big button "rate" to select the speed of the effect, a switch to select an effect little or trs make and sail.

As a result, trs rglages are simple, just as amazingly varis!

Although there are sr phasers with many more buttons, but I confess I do not see too much intrt ... The only thing missing to me is the possibility to pass a portion of the signal "dry" (no effect) for a more discreet.

SOUND QUALITY

The sound is superb. Trs natural, warm, vintage, unlike phasers numriques super cold, it is also trs transparent, and does not give the impression of playing an electronic gizmo, but a guitar whose sound is "renforcquot, for a purpose.

The sounds range from a possible effect trs discrete put some relief in the sound but not change it radically, up sounds more pronounced or carrment crazy with a fast rate trs ! So it's a pretty versatile pedals, especially since it is also clear that in his home in crunch or distortion. The only problem I see is the impossibility of having a more discreet with a fast rate rgl.

Finally, unlike some previous ones opinion, I have not seen a drop in volume when I turn it on! May be silent this the case on old MODELS?

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a few days, but do not shekels to go around, was still just a phaser, even if trs versatile!

I had tried before that phasers numriques, cold and trs pervasive, and it has nothing to do. In rjouissante simplicity of use, it offers a warm, natural and versatile, allowing both to add a little relief to her than to engage in DLIR funky or noisy!

In résumé: perfect!

Electro-Harmonix Small Stone Mk4
The effects are available to choose from phase or phase. The technology is probably the steam given the size of the case. The sounds are editable serious a potentiometer and a switch. Thanks to a brain you can even store the settings. It seems that some even use an additional module: Paper pencil, scissors tape to store even more preset.
There is no MIDI, but given the size and position in the housing, a good handyman should be able to rejouter, remains to know what to connect them.
It's not really a rack, but with a little imagination it must become ...

UTILIZATION

Simply effective, no need to take the lead you want the phaser is a phaser.

SOUND QUALITY

Ben the sound quality is really hell no need to procrastinate, that's what it should do is never ugly or dirty avvec the same distortion.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it from time to time, with a rare pleasure, for 4 years is excellent. And we even recognize the guitar is plugged it.

The mine is true bypass, for he was against a small defect, there was a decrease in volume to put into action, I searched on the internet, it was enough for me to change two resistors and here is nickel.

8 because the took out the soldering iron and get two resistances is still tiring ....
Ha yeah that's true, must also go out to solder the power supply mini jack (weird idea but why not, it's actually good contact).

In short if you want a phaser, you really have to try this pedal, even if you find it too expensive, at least you have the reference in the ears.

Electro-Harmonix Small Stone Mk4
Analog Phaser ... and all the fuss ... eyeGO rpter not all the same!! Are all indicated in other reviews.
If one seeks a phaser, it's great, so I put 10 ...

If not try a phaser, then forcing this way the fact pedals ...

UTILIZATION

Config t too complicated I have to call NASA to help me, it has three months to find how to turn a button and activate a switch ...

Obviously it limits the possibilities for those who want to experiment, but in this case sought the plant, no pedals like this (although the format ...). L is the point, in your face!

SOUND QUALITY

Good effect, rather hot, but shit ca loses volume, there is nothing to do ... And it is the maximum penury, so for that is not cool and frankly vwala ...

I use it with my Flying V and my Yamaha RGX 620DZ a 60DSP Ashdown head, and it works not too bad ... Unless this could * ^ ^ m $ m * loss level ...

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 2 years now, I think it's a good phaser to start in the field, but to see more, well need to change (including loss of sound which is unbearable) ... I had not really ssay phaser before, so it comes into my Contents, and on this point is pretty good ...
Question qualitprix report, I would say blah, especially since it takes up space that pedal (like the Lawrence Ruquier tl), I do not think I would do what I am looking for another choice of the phaser but I still advise ...

A nice thing to finish, if you activate the switch and you push the knob has donf, we obtain an effective "bubble" trs-fun-fun and mga may well nerver his group rp t!

Electro-Harmonix Small Stone Mk4
Nothing simpler, already explained and I will not rexpliqu m'tandre

there is still enough to make the mouth for entred PSU anyway, EHX sells its own power supplies at prices intolrables, c is really the only sour note.

UTILIZATION

No brainer, plug, turn, play

SOUND QUALITY

The sound is to go
It sounds vintage guitar without dnaturer
allows the switch to give more presence al effect, so it just sounds kind of play Van Halen.

J've used an MXR EVH Phase 90 and yet I prefer the small stoneje found the sound less "electronic" and vintage

note the position of "Xnoma" yeah you shoot EHX c is
but learns to connect your effects
j I use my small clone with a Big Muff distortion on AC 30 and I have no absolutely no loss of volume distortion ...
end well ...

OVERALL OPINION

All in all an excellent c pedals
the sound is irrprochable
the case is solid and compact lightweight and does not place a standard
this adapts to many styles

only regret at the taking of power supply, but that s not so bad, you just buy batteries

Electro-Harmonix Small Stone Mk4
See below but I have an original model of the 70s and another (military tank Sovtek version) 90 years

UTILIZATION

Yeah ... hyper-simple .... you turn the knobs and forward ...

SOUND QUALITY

This is the most awesome phaser I've ever used ... sounds hot .. a unique sound ... (I also owned a Boss super phaser that was nothing great with the rather banal one ....) I have two and I make small trips in stereo .... SUPERB! .. .
The only fault but is not really a ... is the slight drop in volume when it switches on but it avoids an unpleasant boost low frequencies and in the end, I find it very useful and I use this "default" ..

OVERALL OPINION

Well, I used one since 1978, it still works and I bought one in 90 years and is the phaser that I "boot" the most. A value at the top and I would do without this choice problem.
If I spend one day in quadraphonic, p'tête although I repeat two more ....

Electro-Harmonix Small Stone Mk4
Analog Phaser

New edition of the small stone 80s (EH4800).

An input / output

A power supply 9 volts battery or Jack 3.5

UTILIZATION

Nothing more simple:
Rgler a knob to the phase velocity and a switch to the "color".

SOUND QUALITY

Indeed devilishly effective! The phaser of references!

I use it on the ground JD800 (a cot gives them a "vintage") and other effects.

However lgre loss of her when the pedals are Inrush ...

OVERALL OPINION

Well I use it for a week ... but frankly it "sound" that I wanted.

The must is the "warm sound" that takes an analog color really.

If it's a phase that you are looking for is the product for you (the cot numriques phasers are cold, flat, inert ...)

Trs qualitprix good value, it's a small investment for the long term (that kind of stuff hard, hard ... hard ...)

mortished's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Electro-Harmonix Small Stone Mk4
- Analog Phaser
- Input / output, a footswitch on / off, a switch and a knob Color Rate

The same config and the same chorus Casing mtal a small clone of the same brand: RAS, super quality!

UTILIZATION

Trs trs simple to use: like a lot of EHX effects can even turn the knob with the edge of the foot given its size

SOUND QUALITY

Superb! a beautiful vintage phaser to his property becomes compltement psych when pushed to its limits: particulirement like this with a bit of distortion, I do not know if I'll make myself understood, but it brings ct a "voyellisant" the sound of a guitar

OVERALL OPINION

Really not a great PDAL CHRE trs (in fact it is seen even given the quality!) As well as the phasing ddies pedals are not lgion probably the best choice! EHX thank you!

Electro-Harmonix Small Stone Mk4
There is not a twist, EHX is the very best! Completely analog phase shifter that is simply magique.la body is solid as any, and the switch.seul CHAC the battery is a little dlicat (you need a screwdriver) but in reality it is the last of our worries when the industry!

UTILIZATION

Configuration is very simple: a big knob, a mini switch (color) and a mega switch Started! There is a choice between two modes: COLOR: a phaser (a real) that will make all your digital pedals obsoletes.le sound is rich, full and adds that je ne sais quoi to your game (analog!) that makes immediately indispensable.
The other is a leslie simulator effect, and I'm not talking about some kind of chorus mode it sends you directly in the wake of Hendrix! Is the effect of years by 60-70 excellence.Que whether an agreement plaquun solo and whatever the method (distal or clear) the pedals puts everyone agrees: it's wonderful.
And now: the icing on the cake! The potentiometer is not as big and flat for nothing ....
You can set the rapidity of the effect FOOT! More useful in live (or forget when your drummer a bit on the tempo ..) we put the foot, ankle and once it's done they are strong ... these Rican ...

SOUND QUALITY

MAGIC-PSYCHEDELIC-unreal!

OVERALL OPINION

I tried many leslie simulator cabin, and none equal, except the Univibe Dunlop (Univibe but too expensive: 450 euros). The strength of the pedal torque its extreme sound quality, and design make it unique.Et then ... it's mouth, something like a in your set: this class!
