Description
 
Analog Man offers the Mini Chorus. The MINI-CHORUS is the same as our normal chorus, but in a smaller, hand stamped box. It is the same size as our small comprossors/juicers. Another MUST HAVE for your pedal board!
Features

For more detailed info on our chorus pedals, and recommended voltages (see MAX HEADROOM picture) check out analogman.com

The MINI-CHORUS is the same as our normal chorus, but in a smaller, hand stamped box. It is the same size as our small comprossors/juicers:

2.5" x 4.75" x 1.5" not including jacks, switch, etc

Same price as the normal Chorus, as the box is a little cheaper but the extra labor to build the pedal into the small box is a lot more than the box savings. These have both battery and DC adapter jack standard, and the same board inside for the same sounds as the normal Chorus. Not available with Stereo option, it's a great, simple, small chorus pedal with awesome tone! It is available with an external MIX (BLEND) knob or depth toggle for $25 more each. The boxes on the mini chorus pedals came out looking great, really nice blue textured color.

We now have 18 different versions of our chorus pedal available if you count all the various options. We build them to order to your spec in just a few days. I don't think anyone else offers more than one or two versions of a chorus, so this is pretty unique and something that we can do since we are in effect a custom shop.

These have true bypass and a depth knob which allows any setting from no chorus to full-on chorus. The true bypass switch is designed for quiet switching with just a slight pop as in any true bypass pedal. Stop losing your tone with your non-true bypass Boss, digitech, line6 etc chorus pedals.

We chose this design for our Chorus pedal because it could have separate Depth and Speed controls. This will allow my two favorite settings: medium depth / high speed for a LESLIE simulation, and high depth / low speed for a rich, thick chorusing. I also like a medium depth / low speed setting sometimes- this setting fills out your sound without really being noticeable until you turn it off, then you notice something is missing. The old Boss CE-1 Chorus Ensemble has a cool sound, but with one knob controlling both speed and depth of the Chorus, it cannot be dialed in to my favorite sounds. And it is not really designed to be used with guitar level signals, the CE-1 works a lot better at line level (keyboards, effects loops, etc).

On the left you can see a closeup view of the circuit board. The circuit board is double sided with plated through-holes as used by the military, this keeps the components perfectly attached to the board.

Why does our chorus sound better than the others that are made today? Both the MN3207 and MN3007 are rated for 2.5% maximum Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) at a certain input voltage level. For the MN3007, this level is 0.78V RMS. For the MN3207, it's 0.25V RMS!! This means that our MN3007 that we use can take a much higher input signal level, which means much more dynamic range, and less noise. Think of it as trying to play your stereo at the same clean loud volume through a 78 watt solid state amp or a 25 watt S.S. amp. The 78 watt amp will have less distortion and noise, and sound much better at higher levels.

These, like all our chorus pedals, are made to order to your specs so they usually take a few days to build.


Starting in 2015 we will offer a TOP JACKS option for people who prefer jacks on top. We are using metal jacks and nuts on these now in both side and top jacks versions.

love it! August 17, 2018
Reviewer: Ian Hodges from Winnipeg, MB Canada  
This chorus is PERFECT! 2 knobs, could not be simpler. Every sound that I want is right there, really easy to find. Basic chorus, Leslie effects, and a very gentle texture all available with minimal adjustments. No tone suck - a full warm signal path. I have used chorus pedals since the 80's, this is the best one I have ever played through. Cannot thank you enough - made me fall in love with chorus again!

Great Sounding Chorus January 12, 2018
Reviewer: Howard Wade from Oak Grove, OR United States  
I received my new Chorus yesterday without a hitch. Thanks for the quick turnaround. I’ve been using guitar pedals since the golden age in the mid 70s. I’ve owned many of the classics. My favorite chorus was a Yamaha E1005 delay which I still have. My favorite that is until now. Your chorus sounds beautiful, chimey and rich at the same time.

I love mine. August 26, 2016
Reviewer: Ferdi from Germany from Paderborn, Nordrhein Westfalen Germany  
I have the Mini Chorus with jacks on top (where they belong IMHO), with depth switch and mix knob.

If you are serious about chorus sounds, like for example early Landau, for very full and deeeep chorussing, try the depth switch in upper position. If you want to go the leslie route or are after Andy Summers sounds, use the lower setting. The switch really gives you the sound of three different chorus pedals in one.

I dial in most of the sounds by first deciding on a position for the depth knob, then settinmg the speed and depth knob around the center position and then set the mix knob to taste.

This afternoon a friend wanted to make me jealous with her original BOSS CE-1. I did not like the chorus sound better the one of my Mini Chorus, but I have to admit I liked its vibrato sound very much, I tried my Mini Chorus with the depth switch up and slightly turned up mix knob and came close!

The Mini Chorus is a very, very good chorus pedal.

Best sounding chorus on the planet August 5, 2016
Reviewer: Morten W from Norway  
I've had the Analogman Mini Chorus for half a year now, and this thing is -never- leaving my pedalboard. Mine has the mix knob and toggle switch. Super versatile! I've had the BOSS CE-1, the CE-2, several different EHX Small Clones, the Red Witch Empress, and several others, but Analogman's chorus leaves them all in the dust. This thing is so musical. I've become a bigtime chorus user, now that I have this amazing pedal in my arsenal. Warm, liquid, lush, organic chorus sounds. Simply the best modulation pedal I can think of. And oh boy, I've had a lot of them. This thing absolutely rocks. Thanks Mike for running a class operation, and putting out these amazing boxes of pure musical joy.
