I've seen you recommending the Electro-Harmonix Small Stone a few times - any thoughts on the original vs the Nano - which do you have?

I have a 1970s USA original, a Russian-built Sovtec version and the Nano.

The Sovtec is noisy and the build quality isn't all that, but it has a sound I really love. It responds well to being overdriven.

The Nano is quiet and pretty close to the original but maybe lacking in life compared to the USA model.

The original USA model is my favourite - it has the warmth of the Sovtec but is way less noisy. Probably my favourite FX device of all time. It's on nearly everything.
