Vintage EH Small Stone Phaser pedal in perfect working order.
The pot code dates from 1979 and it is in very clean condition indeed.
It is in excellent clean condition for a 30 year-old vintage EH pedal and is built like a tank (made in USA).
It sounds absolutely amazing – thick, rich swirly phasing as only a good Small Stone can do – as good as any we’ve had.
At some point it may have had a new battery connector. Powered by the supplied 9v battery or by an EH-style psu (not included – we’ve not tested it with a power supply, but it works perfectly a 9v battery).
There are a few minor scuffs and scratches, but far less than you’d expect from a vintage EH pedal.
These vintage pedals do sound far superior to the reissues in our opinion.
This is an original vintage Small Stone: one of the greatest-sounding phasers ever – sonically very similar to the model understood to have been used by Jean Michel Jarre amongst many others. 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.
Famously used by Radiohead’s Johnny Greenwood and Jean Michel Jarre who used it on his string synths to get that Oxygene sound.
We can't stop here, this is bat country! Our next auction (November 22nd) features some head-turning, show-stopping synths, however we also wanted to put the spotlight...
