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).

This cute little one knobber is probably one of the
most recorded phasers of all time. Forget what you've heard in the
past, because this is what a phaser really sounds like. It's rich
milky swirl is instantly recognizable. A single knob effectively
mantains control over the Small Stone's rate while a simple switch
takes care of two Color settings. The large well-placed rate knob
allows for easy rate adjustments while onstage. Slow settings in the
high color mode dial in subtle sweeps while fast settings in the high
mode gurgle with a hint of watery ring modulation. While these extreme
excursions are fun, the mellow settings are where the Small Stone's
personality really shines through. All the classic Uni-vibe and Leslie
sounds are found here in all their smooth liquid-like glory. The sound
literally surrounds and absorbs your guitar signal and makes for a
Some of our gear will have VAT at 20% added in the UK/EU, but a lot of it won't. This should hopefully clarify the situation but if you have any questions then please get in touch.
ITEMS WITH VAT:
- These items will have two prices visible: with and without the tax.
- If you are buying in the UK/EU you will receive an invoice showing the tax component.
- If you are buying these items outside the EU when you get to the check out and enter your shipping location you will be charged the ex-VAT price.
- VAT-free sales are also possible to businesses within the EU with a valid VAT number. You will need to contact us in order to buy via this means.
ITEMS WITHOUT VAT:
- Much of what we sell is classified as "Second Hand Goods" and so while we still pay some tax, there is no recoverable/deductible component for sales to any part of the world.
- So, the price you see is the price you pay wherever you are.
- Shipping charges are also subject to VAT at 20% within the UK/EU - this is included within the prices you see for shipping to those areas - it is not shown separately in the cart but will be shown on the VAT invoice you receive with your goods.
We are very experienced at packing and shipping valuable and sensitive gear worldwide. Binson Echorecs, large valve amps, vintage synths, rare racks, and even a CS-80 or two - you name it, we've sent it and it has arrived in one piece and ready to play.
SHIPPING DISCOUNT ON MULTIPLE ITEMS:
We keep it simple: if you buy more than one item you only pay the shipping on the item that has the highest shipping cost. This is the same no matter how many items you buy together (so the more you buy together, the bigger your shipping discount). If you check all the items out all together this will be calculated automatically at checkout. However, if you make an order and then wish to add to it before it ships please get in touch and we will refund the shipping on the item(s) that are cheaper to ship.
The shipping prices for our gear vary considerably depending on the type of gear, value and destination. To see shipping costs put the item you are interested in the cart and then either use the shipping estimator or go into the check out process. Or just contact us and we'll tell you what you need to know.
Obviously from time to time with vintage items there are times when gear arrives in need of some adjustment or calibration, and some times a piece of gear that was working 100% just chooses the day after arriving for a new fault to develop - however, having been dealing with sensitive vintage gear for many years, we are also very experienced at dealing with these occurrences and will always work with you to solve the problem.
Note that we have have not entered automatic shipping for every country. The countries we ship to most often will have shipping rates and we are in the process of adding more shipping fees to the check out process. But if you are looking at an item that doesn't have the fee information you need then please use the contact page or call on +44 1773 856475.
Which carriers do we use?
We usually use Royal Mail, UPS and DPD/Interlink - it depends on the item and destination as to which is the most economical. If you have a preference then we should be able to accommodate it (but we may need to pass on any additional costs)
