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. 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.

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.

5 of 5 Mini Chorus May 16, 2020
Reviewer: Taylor from Birmingham, Alabama USA  
This was my first AM pedal back in 2018. Mix knob is a nice feature for slight tone variation depending on what you run through it. I like to run 9v with OD for that extra crunch in the sound, but 12v with OD and clean tones keeps chorus nice and lush. Clean tone strat with a comp, pure bliss! Mike suggests 15v for cleanest sounds, which I haven't tried yet. Just ordered a second one with mix knob, but added the depth toggle and top jacks this time. I think a fine investment, but it's nice to have a back up. I see other pedals with many more tweaking options, but they sacrifice the core essence of what it's supposed to do. So now that I've played with the depth toggle on the thin setting, I notice I can get Ce-1 esque tones. Shortens delay time down to a flange type sound at certain settings. I love this chorus pedal. Thanks, Mike! Surely appreciate your work :)

5 of 5 A fantastic Chorus October 2, 2019
Reviewer: Marcus from Germany  
This isn't my first A-man pedal and I was looking for a compact modulation pedal to go on my fly rig. I have been through all the pedals on the market and got rid of my CE-2 because there was too much gravy in it for my taste. My regular rig has a Deluxe Electric Mistress, which is very precious to me and has this subtle yet 3D sound and headroom for days. I got me the mini chorus w/ blend and mode switch. Mike suggested getting the switch because the thin mode can get into flanger territory / shorter delay. He knows his pedals so I'm glad I asked and got it. This  pedal sounds fantastic in every setting, from Leslie-like to subtle and every thing in between. Fantastic headroom. Great chime, bell-like sound in middle Strat position. This one will make it on my main rig in addition to the EHX and complete my fly rig. As always, it is extremely well built and looks really cool. The inside is really clean but also very full. If you want Chorus, get this one.

5 of 5 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!
