Electro-Harmonix has added the compact Nano Q-Tron to the company’s popular Q-Tron Series of envelope filters known for their organic, analog sound and expressivity.

Equally effective on guitar, bass, keys or horn, the Nano Q-Tron responds to the user’s playing style and dynamics. The volume of the input signal it receives (also called the envelope) controls the cutoff or center frequency of a swept filter allowing the Nano Q-Tron to create tone-altering effects ranging from subtle to dynamic, auto-wah to ultra-funky.

The Nano Q-Tron provides the following controls and features:

  • Vol (Volume) knob which controls the pedal’s output volume
  • Drive Control adjusts its filter sweep sensitivity and how the pedal responds to the user’s playing dynamics
  • Q Control sets the peak bandwidth of the filter and determines how subtle or dramatic the effect will be
  • LP BP HP Mode Switch controls what frequency range the filter will pass. LP (low pass) emphasizes the lows, BP (band pass) the midrange and HP (high pass) the highs
  • Pedalboard-friendly, compact, rugged enclosure
  • True Bypass switching
  • Comes equipped with a 9Volt battery and can also be powered by an optional 9Volt power supply

The Nano Q-Tron features a U.S List Price of $106.40 and is available now.
