Pedalboard space; the struggle is real for guitarists. There's just never enough room, is there? The only solution is to downsize, not the pedalboard of course. That would be ridiculous! No, we need smaller effects pedals. Many brands have answered the call, and now Harley Benton has a new line for that 'just one more' pedal mindset. Introducing the MiniStomp series…

There's 27 MiniStomp pedals – many inspired by the circuits of classic models and ranging in price from £16.80/€19 to £29/€35 with distortions, delays, overdrives, modulations, EQs and… well we give you the full breakdown below.

The pedals are small, light (133 g) with a current draw to match (20 mA).

Note - the MiniStomp Copy Paste digital looper pedal is yet to go on sale on the Thomann site and we don't have an image for it yet. It will offer 15 minutes of looping time.
