- MXR Stereo Chorus – This pedal takes your guitar’s tone, then animates your strummed passages, and widens your power chords in that glossy, shimmering way that only the finest chorus can. You can set the Rate and Width controls to your liking, and then dial in the level of the chorus effect using the Intensity knob. Convenient Bass and Treble controls let you further sculpt your tone by equalizing the modulated frequencies. Though it sounds great in mono, you can also use this pedal’s stereo outputs for an even bigger, room-filling sound. Plus, a cool Bass Filter button can keep your low end intact while your guitar’s high frequencies sing with the MXR’s Stereo Chorus tone!
