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

eadFor 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. 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. In 2019, now available with Stereo option (side jacks only, no battery room). LED on the Mini Chorus is standard.

We now have over 19 different versions of our chorus pedals 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. This one has the STEREO option:


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. The battery room may be tight with top jacks. If you are going to use a battery, we recommend the STANDARD CHORUS instead as there is plenty of room and the wires can get stressed on the Mini Chorus when you open and close it often.

5 of 5 The perfect chorus! May 12, 2022
Reviewer: Dylan Hurry from Charlottetown, PE Canada  
I’ve been looking for the chorus sound that I hear in my head for a while now. I tried a lot of choruses and nothing truly nailed it.

I decided to get the Mini Chorus with depth toggle/mix knob as I’ve had good experiences with every Analog.Man pedal I’ve ordered and it is absolutely phenomenal. Totally nails the chorus sound I’ve been searching for this whole time.
It doesn’t alter the EQ of your tone much at all unlike CE-2 variants, has a very low noise floor, high head room, and is built to high standards.

I’d certainly recommend getting the depth toggle and mix knob as it opens up so many great tones. I am getting the best tones with the mix set so it’s about 30% wet and the depth toggle in the middle position. This pedal is also great for a faux-Leslie type thing as others have noted.

I cannot recommended this chorus enough!

5 of 5 THE BEST! November 2, 2021
Reviewer: Trip from California, United States  
NOTHING sounds as good as this chorus @ 16v! I wasn't that much a fan of chorus til I plugged into this-just the lushest, most musical sounds! Pedal starts sounding better @ 12 volts - @ 18 volts, really quite good, but I felt it lost just a bit of its chewy-ness and dimension compared to 16 volts. Absolute Heaven @ 16 volts! I ordered the depth switch not sure if I'd really use it. However, all settings are useful and musical and I continue to use it at different depth settings. I don't care about presets because this is so easy and fast to dial in right on stage. Along with my KOT - out of my cold, dead, hands, this one...

5 of 5 Can't be beat. July 19, 2021
Reviewer: Oriana Flores from Oklahoma  
Look no farther, this is the luxury car of chorus pedals. Never before have I heard such a lush, beautiful chorus. It's fantastic in mono and at 9V, but it's another dimension, literally, in Stereo and 18v. The clean headroom really lets the chorus work for any guitar, and the warm BBD circuit keeps it from getting into shrill territory, even when being hit with, or going into distortion. It does everything from Nirvana to Lesslie Type sounds, all while maintaining a super simple layout. And needless to say, the build quality is unmatched. Mike runs a whole team of wizards, the whole process of getting the chorus was fantastic, with excellent customer service all around. They've made a return customer out of me!

5 of 5 best Chorus Pedal Ive used April 11, 2021
Reviewer: Michael True from Arvada, CO United States  
Best chorus pedal Ive used. I usually use Chorus only for fast belie sounds, but this pedal has opened me up to using more settings. Has a great sound with out being too bright or thin. Its super transparent and all my tone comes through. And it really ads some ver cool spacial dimension to my sound. Sound mazing combned with other pedals and does not get in the way whatsoever. I think the transparency and the fact that everything comes through on top of how good the effe itself sounds is just amazing. Cant go wrong with AnalogMan. Been using hi gear for 20 years and have never been disappointed. He's amazing at providing support and backs his gear like no other. Thanks Mike!

5 of 5 Jawdropping September 11, 2020
Reviewer: Richard Grace from TACOMA, WA United States  
Just got this today. I had never owned a chorus pedal before now. Never felt the need. I suddenly realized I really, really wanted something from AnalogMike. So I got attracted to the mini chorus, and man am I glad I did. So clear, so pure, so crystalline, even at 9V. An incredible rhythm guitar tool. If I was going to get a chorus, I'm glad I stepped up to get the best no matter the cost. I got the mix knob and top mounts and it is just so flexible and sounds so good at any setting. It sits just before my always-on Univibe, and the combination is incredible. It also interacts brilliantly with my Ventris reverb.  I've attached it to a Strymon Zuma, which gives me 9V/12V/18V settings to play with. This is how a chorus pedal should be made. Magical piece of work. I know there are other good ones out there, but I'm glad I waited for this one.
