« Sweet sounding lush chorus »Publié le 06/30/11 à 15:30
This unit is based off the 80's unit that MXR put out over 20 years ago. The demand for them to recreate that classic chorus tone found on so many players rigs was so great they felt that it needed to be done again with some updates.
MXR M148 Micro Chorus Guitar Effects Pedal Features:
* All-analog circuitry with bucket brigade technology for warm analog tone
* True bypass with LED
* Rate knob adjusts speed of chorus effect
I'm a simple guy and like things to be easy while being useful. I think this pedal achieves this in spades. With only one control knob that has a wide range and sweep of lush chorus. The one touch knob that is found on MXR's Phase 90 has made a huge impact on the guitar world that the introduction of the simplistic chorus pedal caught on to that need of easy effect pedals.
I like this version pedal than the stereo chorus they have since I'm not in a great need of expanded chorus tonal options.
The sound is very lush and full of warm chorus effect that sounds great in front of a clean amp or a dirty amp. Twist the knob all the way up and get cool Leslie type rotary speaker tone. If you put the control knob around noon you get a very lush chorus tone that compliments the harmonics of your guitar and amp. For me I like the 9:00 setting which compliments a heavily distorted amp. It just beefs up the tone quite a bit and gives a cool 80's hard rock tone.
This is a serious 80's guitar fanboy's dream. You will need a good chorus pedal if you have any desire to play 80's style shred metal or hard rock guitar. With only one knob you'd think it has limitations and it does but for the guy who doesn't need all the extra switches and whistles this is the perfect chorus pedal.
For me this is the perfect little chorus pedal. It is simple and just compliments your guitar playing and original tone of your amp quite nicely. If you want something a little more expandable then try the stereo chorus from MXR or maybe a Retro-Sonic chorus pedal. Those pedals have a bit more options to them which could come in handy if you rely heavily of effected tone.
I would recommend this pedal to anyone who needs a simple chorus pedal that is on a budget. And if you are not on a budget this is still a fantastic sounding chorus pedal. The new price comes in around $70 which is steal for something that sounds this good. MXR rules!
