After a month long Deltron 3030 tour, I am back to pedal reviews and the first pedal up is my Craigslist purchase of an MXR 134 analog stereo chorus pedal from the late 70’s/early 80’s. This chorus pedal is a rich and lush analog chorus that has giant headroom and over the top fidelity part-due to its larger than today’s standard internal power supply and reticon chip that is now out of production.
While on tour I heard this MXR 134 at a music store and fell in love with the rich chorus and the giant headroom. Bass players know that our low E or B string can be difficult to effect since it hits such a low frequency range but this vintage pedal is right there with all its analog glory. Whether you are into Joy Division’s Peter Hook or Jaco Pastorius, this pedal will get you that vintage chorus you have been so wanting to emulate. Only one problem…they have not made this particular unit since the early 80’s so hit Reverb, eBay, Craigslist or vintage music stores like Future Music and find your own MXR 134 stereo chorus or buy the very capable modern analog MXR M134 Chorus.
