Okay, so a while back I bought a 1975 EHX Small Stone Phase shifter on ebay. It cost me 200 bucks. It sounds good but ever since I got it I've been finding more and more reasons to sell it and buy a Nano Small Stone. 1. There is no light on it! In a live setting where I smear 3 other pedals on to my sound I'm always trying to figure out if it's on or off or being frustrated by how my tone just isn't right, especially since the vintage units sound very transparent. 2. And this one's a biggy: Volume drops! I mean, this is a real bugger, I often find myself getting lost in the mix because of it's volume drops (especially with the color switch, my favorite setting, up) or having to turn it on with a volume booster in front of because it drops so bad it which is really annoying. Note: I have installed True Bypass and tried putting it between different pedals in the chain. 3. The build - The button is tough and noisy, and it is obviously fragile and built poorly. So now here's is my question: Everyone says the Nano stone just "Doesn't sound like the vintage one's". But is that really true? I saw one of my favorite local guitarists using one and he is an effect genius. They also sound good online. So what do you guys think? Is the extra 130 bucks plus all the bugs worth the sound? Sadly I don't have a local guitar store that are selling one so the only way I can find out is by listening online and getting recommendations.
