Electro-Harmonix debuts the Flatiron Fuzz, Nano Battalion

Alongside the release of the Sovtek Deluxe Big Muff Pi, Electro-Harmonix has announced two other dirt boxes: the Flatiron Fuzz and the Nano Battalion. The former takes after the iconic RAT2 pedal while the latter is a bass preamp/OD with a few tricks up its sleeve.
Flatiron Fuzz
The Flatiron Fuzz is EHX’s take on the iconic RAT2 distortion pedal. It’s a pedalboard-friendly op-amp powered fuzz/distortion unit that boasts vintage appointments, including a late-70s style drive circuit and symmetrical hard clipping.
In terms of sound, the Flatiron shines in both low- and high-gain settings. The former dials in mild distortion, while the latter delivers thick, saturated drive tones.
Control-wise, the pedal retains a simple three-knob layout comprising “Volume”, “Drive” and “Filter” controls. The latter functions as a low-pass filter that can be configured for a specific cut-off frequency. This allows you to dial in the desired amount of high end.
Retails for $72.70.
Nano Battalion

The Nano Battalion is an analogue bass preamp/OD pedal. Designed with the popular MOSFET drive circuit, this compact unit can serve up a wide range of grinding bass tones.
A standout feature of the Nano Battalion is the inclusion of a three-band EQ with three EQ positions for added customisability. The EQ controls are as follows:
Boosts or cuts above 1kH

Boosts or cuts below 200Hz

“Mids” switch
Selects between a nine dB boost or 500Hz cut

The three-way “EQ Position” switch, however, allows you to dictate where the EQ is applied:
“Distortion” mode:
Places EQ after the distorted signal
Shapes distortion tone while preserving clean sound

“Input” mode:
Places EQ before entire signal path
Shapes both clean and distorted sound

“Dry” mode:
EQ shapes clean signal while distortion is preserved

Apart from the above, the pedal also features “Volume”, “Drive”, “Blend” and “Tone” controls.

Retails for $117.50. More information at ehx.com.
