Best Chorus Pedals: Five of our favourites
MXR M-134 Stereo
First reviewed: TG135

Welcome to the Marmite of guitar effects: the chorus pedal. Without it Kurt and Slash wouldn’t have summed up and spat out the saccharine sickliness of the late 80s, Johnny Marr would have lost his sparkle and even ‘Enter Sandman’ would sound less haunting. Yes, it’s the chorus pedal’s time to shine: here are five of the best we’ve tested.

MXR M-134 Stereo

We said: “A huge range of sound and tonal options that will please you no matter what style of music you play.”

TC Electronic Corona Chorus

We said: “Where some chorus pedals sound plasticky, the Corona is lush without having to really tweak it. Sure, it’s not cheap, but the Tri-Chorus and TonePrint settings are worth it.”

Line 6 M5 Stompbox Modeler
