Now roaming the Earth is the latest in Eventide’s dot9 series pedal range: the TriceraChorus. Maybe there’s a hint of irony in the name and dinosaur logo as some may consider chorus an extinct effect that had its time back in the ’80s… but if anyone can drag it into modern times, Eventide is the company to do so. 

The TriceraChorus pedal takes its inspiration from chorus effects of the 1970s and early ’80s but particularly the rackmounted Dytronics CS-5 Tri-Stereo Chorus, which was the workhorse of LA studio musicians such as Steve Lukather and Michael Landau.
