If you listen to classic rock, then you’ve heard the wonderful and awe-inspiring sound of he Uni-Vibe Chorus/Vibrato. It’s one of the most iconic effects in music history and that’s not an exaggeration. Since the late ™60s, players pushing the limits of the guitar have used it to blow minds and reconfigure the tonal and textural palette of music. The geniuses over at MXR have just remastered the classic effect for today’s guitarist but in a smaller footprint while maintaining all of the gorgeously chewy, Leslie-sounding goodness. With its simple three-knob interface, you can dial up the sound to your liking without problems. First, use the VIBE switch to select either Chorus Mode”dry signal mixed with pitch-shifted signal”or Vibrato Mode”only pitch-shifted signal. Then, use the LEVEL control to set the effect volume, the SPEED control to set the sweep rate, and the DEPTH control to set overall intensity. The Uni-Vibe comes in a Phase 90-sized housing”a fraction of the size and weight of the original Uni-Vibe pedal”and features true bypass switching. Perfect for hitting the road with lush, swirly madness.

Well, does the world really need another Chorus pedal? Hmmm good argument, does it? Does it really? Well yeah, if it has something to bring to the table. So what does the new Carl Martin Atlantic Chorus bring to the table apart from the stellar looks with its new two-toned die-cast enclosure in Ocean Blue anodized finish, small pedal board friendly footprint, connector jack on the top, and top-notch sound (off cause)? Well, there are a few tricks; highly unusual for a chorus pedal, the Atlantic Chorus has a level control, which actually can boost the signal quite a bit to sit right in the mix. But the real game changer is in the RATE control knob which blends in vibrato for some more extreme in-depth chorus modulations
