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.

It's hard to believe it's a violin as artist, Maria Zaharia, tears it up playing her electric 5-string into an EHX Metal Muff with Top Boost. Some have touted the Metal Muff as the ultimate metal pedal and it certainly helps Maria create some truly massive sounds!

Pedals & Friends just posted a very tasty video on the new Triangle Big Muff Pi. That pedal's a faithful re-creation of the original, circa 1969, Version 1 Big Muff that started it all!

Our new EHX Strings Electro-Harmonix electric guitar strings are custom-designed to our specifications and made in the USA by a premiere string manufacturer. Each wound string is precision wrapped with round nickel-plated steel onto a high carbon, hexagon-shaped steel core. The plain strings are made from the same high carbon steel as the hex cores. The high quality steel and computer controlled winding process results in strings that intonate accurately, are better at staying in tune and vibrate evenly for maximum sustain.
