    Comments about MXR M234 Analog Chorus Guitar Effects Pedal:

    After wasting years and money on costly digital effect racks and multieffect pedals, I finally got back to the basic analog sound. The tones that come from the MXR analog chorus are warm and natural. I will be purchasing more of these for an all analog pedal chain!

        Comments about MXR M234 Analog Chorus Guitar Effects Pedal:

        I bought this pedal because I am just getting back into personal recording. I needed a chorus pedal that was simple to use yet had great sound quality. I find that this pedal is extremely versatile and sounds good clean or with distortion.

          Comments about MXR M234 Analog Chorus Guitar Effects Pedal:

          I just got this in the mail today and put it in front my Marshall JVM and it's amazing. The 3 sample settings are all I've used and so far I already have the sound I want. it works amazing on hi gain. Analog is the best. It would work well for any genre. Chorus is my favorite effect. the blue paint job is beautiful. this is my favorite pedal I've ever owned.

            Comments about MXR M234 Analog Chorus Guitar Effects Pedal:

            I had the micro chorus before I upgraded and immediately noticed the warm tone and classic effect without any boost in my volume. The pedal looks and sounds great and operation is easy--very satisfied with my purchase!

            I liked the price and description, but mainly I purchased because I am a long-time customer of Musician's Friend. Over the past 10+ years, I have purchased everything from guitar pics to guitars, sound system, keyboard and amplifiers. I purchased the M234 Analog Chorus Guitar Effects Pedal because I know the Musician's Friend reputation for quality and reliability.

              I originally wanted the mxr chorus for bass but I know it is no much of a difference with chorus pedals so a saved money buying guitar pedals for my bass. plus musicians friend doesnt have it so meh. I am very happy with this pedal I would give my first born child for one of these any day.

                Comments about MXR M234 Analog Chorus Guitar Effects Pedal:

                I've always avoided chorus pedals because I thought they only did the overblown, 80s sound. That was my own bias/ignorance. Saw a few YouTube clips of chorus pedals adding definition and "shimmer" and thought I would try some out.

                The MXR M234 is great for anything from a touch of sparkle to full-blown, cheesy saturated chorus. I mainly use it for the subtle stuff, and the analog components give it warmth. At some settings, it offers very nice definition to fingerpicking or soloing. The "Level" knob is central to the versatility of this pedal. "Level" allows it to be subtle or saturated and points in-between. The "High" and "Low" cut knobs also offer great sonic flexibility and insures that the sounds don't have to be shrill or too shimmery (unless you want that, which it can do).

                The stereo version would be the only improvement I could imagine for this pedal (maybe an expression pedal input too). That said, there are two outputs, which can offer other options. One output has the "wet" effected signal and the other output is dry. I have experimented with a more saturated wet signal (with level at 3/4) and a dry signal going to other effects (wah and fuzz) and then the second amplifier. Lots of room to experiment.

                      The best small footprint chorus I've found...very rare to get analog warmth without the accompanying hiss...nice. Wide range of usable tones from subtle to pretty over the top.
