Maxon CS9-Pro Stereo Chorus
Analog pedal with classic features alim. Four 9 volt knob for régalges.


The manual provided some settings but we did not really need is just a chorus.

Versatility is also not appropriate because as soon as one wants to play with a little saturation effect generates a kind of vibrato that is not especially successful.


The sound quality is very respectable this said in this price range (200 € for a single effect) it is enough to stay hungry.

It does not outperform the chorus mid-range (+ / - € 100) I've tried or that I have (MXR M234 and even the chorus in liquid or visual sound chorus of Mobius from Strymon is yet a multi-effect).


I have this chorus for almost 2 years, I was looking for the last chorus and then finally it is not just another chorus than the competition (I even found clearly lower than the MXR M234) despite its price.

Maxon CS9-Pro Stereo Chorus
Good old pedals with a good old analog technology.
For dtails techniques (components, etc ...) will see the site (and costs the DMOS).

A between two outputs (a procession, the other not, Stereo Chorus).

Rglages classic: Speed, Width, Blend (shuffled between effect and dry) and the Delay Time suuuurtout! We will come back.

Otherwise good quality hyper hyper good finish (pots that rub just enough), it's solid, it's Maxon.
And it's true bypass!


Well, four buttons, a should go, right?
But it's real analog, so to find your happiness, it takes time
and trouble to turn mticuleusement buttons. Rglages small, great effects, the subtle is the word matre to take advantage of this great pedals.


Oh, lalalalala ... Not but what sound (s)!
SETTING THE The "Delay Time" is a marvel, you must have a good old Boss chorus of the Small Clone ElectroHarmonix. No, you do not rvez with the pedals (and a few others!) I got exactly the sound of "Come As You Are" in a dtour rglage.
It is a chorus of versatility Inoue. The proof I use it with the same fun on Start, Tele, Les Paul, Electroacoustic and even active and passive bass!


If I lose the pedals, I lose the pedals! (Yeah it's easy ...)
The pedals are a must for any guitarist or bassist, for a reasonable price.

What qualities, like all Maxon pedals!

Maxon CS9-Pro Stereo Chorus
Analog Stereo Chorus (one IN and two OUT), with 4 knobs (rate / depth / blend and an amazing time delay, on rare chorus pedal format). According to Maxon, equipped with true bypass.


Bah non, editing is not simple, because this delay time knob that acts really so surprising (in a good way). The manual, well done, explains the functions of each knob and offers some examples of settings for CS9 but also for the flanger and delay, the time ... ;-)


The sound is really very good but very different from the chorus I used to date (by Jacques Meistersinger, which I posted a notice earlier this year)


I use it for a month. By dint of playing, my ear has been refined and started to find the chorus of Jacques, as well as pretty terrible, a bit too "air". Being a big fan of chorus that are close to Leslie, I had a chorus warmer, fat ... I found with the Maxon.
This pedal does it all, the chorus slight, almost imperceptible to the big chorus not quiet at all, but in any case, it is still very musical (chorus, while others give you a terrible seasickness after the race depth exceeded knob ...). The delay time button is acting really strange, it alone can make you change your sound dramatically. With some settings, you'd think the chorus is mixed with the sound of a tremolo. I love it! And again, I use it in mono. I dare not even imagine what it would be in stereo.
on the other hand, three faults: the price, definitely excessive (€ 230 in Paris ... and € 200 in the provinces looking for the error ... lolll).
Second fault: if there is careful, when switching the pedal, it has a micro microphone mute (you can, pressing very gently, find the point of "no contact" makes you "disconnect") . It is pretty bad, considering the price of the pedal. That's why I get off my bill (-1).
Finally, if you put the blend in more than half means a slight increase in volume when the pedal is engaged ...
Despite that, this pedal is énormissime and I stick a 9 Well deserved.

Edit: oh yeah, I forgot something. I wanted to try it on in a Paris shop effects pedals well known. The seller made me try the Ibanez CS9 to me stating that the Maxon CS9 was identical, except for "two knobs and more unnecessary" and € 70 difference. But to have tried both also there is a HUGE difference between the two chorus, and I weigh my words. By the way, thank you to the seller that do probably never recognize, as it must not be aware of the stuff he sells, I do not set foot in his shop ;-)

its depth, precision
- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
not that much, in fact, the boss from home Chorus I think it's the CH1 or sth like that, a model in Jacques le then the CS 9 of Maxxon, but I was disappointed.

Yes and I urge you to do, remember that Maxxon has always made for major brands, starting with the legendary TS 808 and her sisters.
