(May 19, 2011) -- Tech 21 released two new Boost Chorus pedals. Derived from the careful study of ‘70s vintage choruses, these pedals combine Tech 21 studio-grade performance with an entertaining, yet cleverly useful,
array of never-before-heard sounds. Slapback, echo, flanging and doubling effects are all possible with
the Boost Chorus pedals. The Pre-Delay control featured on the Boost Chorus adds delay to the chorus effect before mixing it back in. This achieves a wide range of the effect from flange/chorus to standard chorus to chorus/doubler.
The Boost Chorus Bass, on the other hand, features a Detune control to adjust the pitch of the choral
voices, adding sonic girth to create thick, lush, bass-compatible chorus. While Speed and Depth con-
trols add modulation, you can set them at minimum to preserve the fundamentals. This avoids that
queasy, seasick feeling typically associated with traditional chorus pedals when used on bass.
On both Boost Chorus pedals, you’ll find a Multi Voice switch to add dimension and thicken the sound
with additional choral voicings. Other shared features include all-analog Mix, Tone and Level controls,
Speed and Depth (which work in conjunction to control their respective functions of the modulation), Mix
control ranges from 0-100% wet, buffered bypass, and a silent-switching, custom footswitch actuator.
Operable with 9V battery (not included) or optional DC power supply (Tech 21 Model #DC2).
Manufactured in the U.S.A.
