Electro-Harmonix has unveiled the Nano Metal Muff distortion pedal, a smaller incarnation of its popular Metal Muff unit.
Sporting a chassis that's about half the size of the original, the Nano Metal Muff packs six controls – Treble, Mid, Bass, Volume, Gate, and Distortion – and true bypass switching.
Though the pedal lacks the original's footswitchable Top Boost, it does feature a newly designed noise gate, for removing unwanted hum during gaps in playing. The noise gate features an adjustable noise floor threshold and a dedicated LED that indicates when the output signal is muted.
The Electro-Harmonix Nano Metal Muff distortion pedal is available now – with a 9 Volt battery included – for $72.70. The pedal also accepts a standard EHX 9.6DC200mA power supply.
