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
chorus that sounds very realistic as ever!


config simple effective quite efficient, easy to find a sound that envelope without distorting it, but do not overfill if necessary


Effects tops, I had the Boss, Tc of electronic ... I stayed short on this one is really excellent


for 3 months now good value for money it is not cheap, but it does its job so well that's really what I was looking for a long time ... he can not get enough ... This chorus can be subtle, or very light present there should be one with the potential to store settings so the possibilities are numerous, if you are looking for a chorus frankly try the sound is incredible ... he ITS pure side chorus not his usual style already heard a thousand times!
I waited a long chorus sound that would put me a slap!

The config is super simple manual is useless, it works as a pedal base, 4 knobs and off you go
I put 9 because I think she is a little hard to snap so it may be some discomfort or live in groups but hey it's still a minor problem.


So that's where it gets interesting, the chorus is just a killer, nothing to do with all the digital shit that can be found on the market.
I would not say that all the world chorus on this pedal are present but this is by far the best I've ever had in my hands rather then saying under their feet.
The main advantage is that we here in the analog so you can "scratch" and look with much greater possibilities for hours to find his sound. The blend can mix the different functions of the pedal resulting in a chorus very very dense. The effect is really stunning, it may as well have the typical sound of Prince on the intro of Purple Rain to the sound of Come As You Are by Nirvana, and many others of course.
I read on another review that it was not a very 80's chorus, well it's totally wrong !!!!!!
If it lingers a bit on this little gem can be typically 80's sound you really tweak the blend to have full control of the craft.
Ah yes I use it for info on electric as acoustic (Gibson Les Paul Custom and Gibson J 160)


I have been using it 2 me just as well say that I have not yet tapped a quarter of the possible sounds of this pedal
I had a lot of those there before chorus including digital home by Boss cons this one is my first analog chorus say it all day and night with what I have before.
The price / quality ratio is pretty good even though the entrance fee into the club Maxon remains fairly high (around 200 euros in nine) with the chorus but I'm not going to change except maybe for his big brother CS-550 that I have not yet had the pleasure of testing.
Of course I do it again this election, I already eyeing the entire range maxon including flanger and compressor but hey we will have to sell some other pedals before that I think

Maxon CS9-Pro Stereo Chorus
- What are the effects or types of effects available?
And ben, chorus!
- What technology is used? (Analog, digital, tube ...)
- Are they edited? Via an editor Mac / PC?
oh no, it's heavy for 80 years ...

6.5 mm jack input socket and 9V power supply.
- Is this a rack or rack-mount model?
either, decidedly.


- The general configuration is it simple?
Well, not so much.
a bit hard to find her.

- Publishing of sound effects or is it easy?
same question, right?

- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
it yes, but nothing beats the plug and play ..


- Effects are they effective, responsive and realistic enough?
Then there is the killing.
- Which instruments do you use?

only guitar, acoustic or elect.
- Which ones you prefer, you hate?

I prefer a deep chorus 80 years, its clear.
I do not like the "the blend" that gives one side rolling stones in beggar 's banquet.


- How long have you use it?
6 months
- What is so special that you like most and least?
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.
then I saw that there was one who s'aplait CS PRO 9 and there!
- How would you rate the quality / price?
it's expensive yes, but when I want to make me a good meal, I will not go to McDonalds ...
- With experience, you do again this choice? ...

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.

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 ;-)

lowweek's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

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!
