With its simple operation and stellar analog tone—the MXR Micro Chorus joins the ranks of MXR Classics such as the Phase 90, Dyna Comp and Micro Amp. This 80's reissue delivers a stunning range of rich chorus textures, from sparkly watery shimmers to intense rotating speaker simulation with a twist of the Rate control. The Micro Chorus is designed with old-school bucket brigade technology for warm analog tone and features true bypass for pure guitar tone when the pedal is off. Its road-worthy hardware and components are housed in a space saving Phase 90 sized box.

Tone #1 (dial kept very low) is a classic 70s flange. Not the heavy-resonating EVH stuff. Not the Tom Morello stuff. I'm talking about the pleasant, subtle analog flange from old Rush and Heart albums.
Tone #2 (dial between 9 and 1 o'clock) is a juicy 80s chorus effect. When it's clean, it gives you that Police vibe. When it's dirty, it gives you a nice full distorted sound without getting too cheesey. The best "just enough" chorus tone on the market IMHO.
Tone #3 (dial kept very high) is the classic leslie effect. Nobody uses this tone too often, but this box gets you there. If your band plays "Black Hole Sun," you've got it. Yes, I know it's a stereo leslie on the album, but what exactly do you expect?
All three tones are so darn pleasant, warm, and otherwise *PERFECT* that it's kind of hard to believe. You can find fancier chorus pedals that will take you a long time to dial in all the parameters just so. Any chorus pedal will give you these three tones, but how many of them can give you these tones with just one knob and a price so low? Dunlop really had their heads screwed on straight when they designed this one. Five stars.
The only downside: I have a tube-buffered effects loop, and this box hums like crazy when it's in the loop. Keep it in front of the amp.
They have slowly earned their way on the board and eventually pushed some expensive boutique pedals into early retirement
The MXR Mirco Chorus is a perfect "One Trick Pony" it does one thing beautifully and simply - and that one thing is create a soft velvety chorus effect with good chime tones - when I activate the MXR Custom Comp pedal in conjunction with the MXR Micro Chorus I can easily copy the Andy Summers Police sound and a few other notable chorus styles
It works great with distortion and with clean compression
I never have to bend over and adjust a bunch of NOBS in the dark - simply control the one speed NOB with my foot (on the fly quite simply)
Presently I use these MXR products:
The MXR Custom Comp = I highly recommend this very subtle very professional compression pedal (read any review of this pedal you'll see why)
The MXR Micro Flanger = Easy, sounds amazing, never have to bend over and fiddle with it, does Jet airplane to subtle waves
The MXR Micro Chours = Easy soft sounding with good chime - never have to bend over and fiddle with it - simple foot control
And the old standard (Ive had this since the 1980's) the MXR Phase 45 - simply the best phase pedal ever made - and I've tried them all
I tried this MXR MICRO CHORUS.... After reading the reviews on this pedal I thought,"well it can't hurt to try just once more"...and boy I am SO GLAD I gave it one last shot...
Not only is this little baby built as solid as a tank, it is practically noise-less AND the one knob setting is sweet... you can simply dial in any type of chorusing speed/effect from very mild to lush to a leslie style setting... It is by far the best little chorus pedal that I have ever tried...
I most certainly would HIGHLY recommend this pedal for anyone looking for a rich chorus effect and then some, in a small, simple to use, and inexpensive unit.
I would also recommend purchasing the external power supplys well.
A very small price to pay for a HUGE sounding pedal !!!! No lie ! : )
MXR ROCKS !!!!!
It will never leave my board again.
