Tech 21 Boost Chorus

The evolution of the chorus effect seems to have gotten stuck in '80s pop, along with over-processed guitars, cheesy synths and popped collars. This ain't that kind of chorus. When we designed the Boost Chorus pedals we went back to the '70s, when choruses were rich, smooth and manly. We figured out what made these vintage stompboxes sound so good and poured that knowledge into a new kind of chorus pedal with greatly improved performance and a whole slew of never-before-heard sounds. Slapback, echo, flanging and doubling effects are all possible from the modestly named Boost Chorus pedals.


Because of the way traditional chorus pedals typically interact with their amps, most bass players would rather put an angry badger on their pedalboard. The Boost Chorus Bass avoids seasick tones, and badgers, through a specially-tailored design. It features the same control set as the standard Boost Chorus, including the Multi Voice switch, but differs in having a Detune control in place of the Pre-Delay. The Detune control adjusts the pitch of the choral voices, adding sonic girth to create thick, lush, bass-perfect chorus. Speed and Depth controls add modulation, so at minimum your fundamental notes are preserved. Finally, a chorus that works in harmony with your bass.

 

Sample settings include such styles as Cure Bass, Hooky, Squire Harmonized, Bass Chorus-no modulation, Jaco Fretless, Vibrato Bass, Triple Voice Bass, Infinite Flange, Bass Thickener, Subtle, Shimmer for Guitar, Randy Rhodes for Guitar.

FEATURES
• 100% analog Mix, Tone and Level controls for warm, organic sounds.
• Mix control ranges from 100% dry to 100% wet.
• Speed and Depth work in conjunction to control their respective functions
of the modulation.
• Pre-Delay (Boost Chorus) adds delay to the chorus effect before mixing
it back in, achieving a wide range from flange/chorus to regular chorus
to chorus/doubler.
• Detune (Boost Chorus Bass) alters the choral voicing up or down,
giving you a chorus sound without modulation when Speed and Depth are
set at minimum.
• Multi Voice adds dimension and thickens the sound with additional
choral voicings.
• Buffered bypass eliminates the shortcomings associated with "true bypass" (pops and clicks, and high-end loss when multiple pedals are connected together), as well as signal loss associated with other types of switching circuits.
• Custom, silent-switching actuator.
• Heavy duty, all metal construction.
• Operable with 9V alkaline battery (not included) or optional DC power supply (Tech 21 Model #DC2).
