MXR EVH 5150 Chorus
The streamlined MXR chorus is a brilliantly intuitive little box, and when run in stereo sounds fantastic. There’s not a huge amount to the controls, with the intensity pot dealing with the chorus rate, and the volume and tone allowing for tweaking of the guitar signal. For vintage-style tones, pull the tone control back, and vice versa for modern. The only complexity of the pedal is that there’s a switchable range of input and output levels, which leaves you reaching for the manual. As a vintage-style analogue effect it’s noisy, to the extent that without a noise gate, we’d be concerned recording with it.
