Electro-Harmonix Small Stone V2 Dating from 1978-79. In good condition for vintage EH pedals and of course built like a tank (made in USA).
A good sounding example – we’ve had many Small Stones, and some are better than others – this one has that richness and depth that’s hard to beat whether used on guitar, keys or synths – incredible on string synths and Rhodes/Wurli…
There are the usual scuffs and scratches as you’d expect from a vintage EH pedal but overall it is in better condition than many we’ve seen. Has velcro on the bottom.
These vintage pedals sound far superior to the reissues in our opinion.
The sought-after second version of the small enclosure Small Stone – possibly the best-sounding of all the various incarnations – and the model understood to have been used by Jean Michel Jarre on his landmark Oxygene album. It’s capable of a wide range of effects, from subtle and watery to thick and syrupy. We have tried most phaser pedals at some time (and own many vintage examples): there are some that can get close to an approximation of the Small Stone (the MXR Phase 100 for example), but none that quite nail ‘that’ sound. You will find yourself reaching for this pedal again and again. Sounds great on guitars, synths, Rhodes, Wurli, etc; it’s great for breathing analogue life into digital synths and samples. Famously used by Radiohead’s Johnny Greenwood and Jean Michel Jarre who used it on his string synths to get that Oxygene sound.
It can be powered by 9v battery (new Duracell Procell fitted) or EH power supply (not included – or tested with a power supply, but it works perfectly with a 9v battery).
