This updated reissue of the classic MXR M148 Micro Chorus pedal featuring the single rate control knob that is capable of dialling in everything from lush watery chorus all the way to swirling leslie-like tones.
As usual with MXR tone is at the heart of this creation with analog bucket brigade circuitry revitalised for that organic feel. On the more light settings the Micro Chorus almost sounds like a very subtle phaser. This works beautifully for both clean and distorted settings adding a little more colour to your overall tone.
Once you tweak the rate to around 10 o’clock the Micro Chorus starts to generate a more pronounced chorus effect. It’s great for getting that doubled guitar part sound and it also works fantastically for lead work.
2 o’clock or beyond on the rate control and the Micro Chorus spirals into some pretty convincing leslie or vibe type sounds. The manual has a tone example setting named “Grunge as you are”, this is very fitting as combined with the right pickup and amplifier setting you really do start to hear that classic Nirvana tone.
While retaining the vintage cool it offers some handy additional features that the orginal could not give you, like true bypass switching and an indicator LED. Of course like all MXR pedals, this Chorus is built to last, made from rock solid enclosures, switches and jacks.
