Bell Bottom Blues: Five Modern Effect Pedals That Recreate Groovy '70s Sounds
From chorus to Leslie to distortion, here are five effect pedals that recreate hot '70s sounds.
MXR M-134 Stereo Chorus
The ‘70s might be gone (Wait, it's been confirmed — they’re gone), but one of the decade’s most popular guitar effects — chorus — never really went away. It’s a mainstay on ultra-modern modeling amps, and scores of experienced guitarists still consider it a pedal-board must.
MXR (made by Jim Dunlop) makes one of the best stereo chorus pedals on the market, the M134. This sturdy, good-looking pedal really will “remind you how cool chorus can be,” as the MXR press material says.
There’s a lot of tone-shaping capability here; you can get started with the Rate and Width knobs then go crazy with the Intensity knob. Despite its name, you can get some great mono chorus as well, but don’t forget those stereo outputs. Another nice feature is the fact you can EQ your voicing with the Bass and Treble controls.
MSRP: $314 | Check out this pedal at jimdunlop.com.
