The new Sovtek Deluxe Big Muff Pi combines the Civil War and Green Russian Big Muff signature tones with the enhanced sound shaping control of the Deluxe Big Muff in a single, integrated pedal.

EHX Founder, Mike Matthews, stated: “The Sovtek Deluxe Big Muff delivers the devastating low end, crisp highs and non-scooped mids players love in the Civil War and Tall Font Green Russian with the powerful sound shaping control of our Deluxe Big Muff.”



The Sovtek Deluxe Big Muff Pi provides:
1. MIDS EQ – Parametric MIDS EQ section with a selectable center frequency ranging from 310Hz to 5.0kHz, a level control with up to 10dB of boost or cut and a high/low Q switch that sets the resonance/bandwidth of the EQ
2. FOOTSWITCH for MIDS EQ – Dedicated on/off footswitch with status LED for the MIDS EQ circuit
3. GATE – Noise gate to remove unwanted hiss and hum
4. BLEND – Mix control for the dry and distorted signals. Enables bass players to retain their signal’s low end; also useful when layering in other distortion pedals
5. WICKER– With the switch up, high frequency bandwidth is opened up for a more pronounced attack. Switch down yields the traditional Green Russian sound.
6. EXPRESSION PEDAL INPUT – sweeps the frequency of the MIDS EQ to create wah wah and cocked wah effects
7. TRUE BYPASS – maintains signal path integrity in bypass mode

The pedal comes equipped with a 9Volt battery and will accept an optional EHX 9.6DC200mA power supply. It is available now at a U.S. Street Price of $149.00.

Electro-Harmonix announces the Flatiron Fuzz, an extremely versatile, classic op-amp powered fuzz/distortion unit housed in a pedalboard friendly, die-cast chassis. The distinctive sound of the Flatiron Fuzz is a result of its classic, late ‘70s style circuitry and the fact that it delivers symmetrical hard clipping. It’s EHX’s take on the RAT2™ pedal, only we think it’s better.



The pedal features three controls: Volume, Drive and Filter. Volume sets the output level and Drive adjusts the amount of sustain and distortion. The unique Filter control is actually a low pass filter with a movable cut-off frequency. This lets the player dial in the precise amount of high-end they prefer, from dark to raunchy.

At lower drive settings the Flatiron Fuzz remains fairly clean and adds a pleasing, mild distortion. Turning drive up produces very dense, thick, meaty tones. As the guitar’s volume is turned down, it cleans up, but not all the way.
The Flatiron Fuzz is named after the historic Flatiron Building in New York City. It’s an iconic landmark located just down the block from EHX headquarters in the 1970s and it’s the building pictured on the pedal.

The new pedal features true bypass switching for maximum signal path integrity in bypass mode, comes equipped with a 9V battery, and accepts an optional EHX9.6DC-200 AC adapter. It is available now and carries a U.S. street price of $72.70.

The RAT2 is a trademark of Act Audio.

Electro-Harmonix announces the Nano Battalion Bass Preamp and Overdrive featuring a MOSFET drive circuit that delivers a broad range of distorted tones plus a three-band EQ with three EQ position modes for greater flexibility.



The three-band EQ includes Treble (boost/cut above 1kHz) and Bass (boost/cut below 200Hz) controls, plus a Mid switch which provides a 9dB boost or cut at 500Hz. Three signal path options determine where the EQ is applied. In Distortion Mode the EQ comes after the distorted signal and has a powerful effect on its timbre while the clean signal is not affected. In Input Mode the EQ comes first in the signal path affecting both the clean and distorted signals. Boosting frequencies in this mode can drive the distortion to a more saturated state. In Dry Mode the EQ affects the clean signal, but not the distorted signal.

User-friendly controls include Volume to set the master output level, Blend to adjust the ratio between the clean and distorted signals, Drive to control the intensity and saturation of the distortion and Tone which cuts high frequencies from the distorted signal.

The Nano Battalion includes a ¼" input jack and ¼" output jack. When a normal TS cable is connected to the output jack it delivers an unbalanced signal. When a TRS cable is plugged into this jack, it outputs a balanced signal that can go directly into a mixing console or recording interface.

The Nano Battalion features all analog circuitry and comes with an EHX9.6DC-200mA AC adapter, is available now and features a U.S. Street Price of $117.50.
