Aguilar Amplification Releases the Chorusaurus

The pedal offers stereo and mono outputs with Bucket-Brigade technology.

New York, NY (October 20, 2014) -- Aguilar Amplification, an industry leader in creating high-quality amplifiers, speaker cabinets, effects pedals and pickups for discerning bassists, is pleased to announce the Chorusaurus bass chorus pedal.

Providing the warm, rich tone that Aguilar gear is famous for, the Chorusaurus uses analog, bucket-brigade technology for lush, organic chorusing.

The Chorusaurus gives bassists unparalleled control of their tone with an intuitive, four-knob layout. Blend controls the ratio of dry and wet signals. The rate, intensity, and depth controls provide maximum tonal sculpting. Now you can dial in subtle swirling textures, extreme chorusing or anything in between!

Features:

  • Uses analog Bucket-Brigade technology
  • Stereo or Mono output
  • Gig-saver bypass (signal passes even if your battery dies)
  • Can be powered by a nine-volt battery or optional universal power supply
  • Heavy duty steel construction
  • Three-year limited warranty

The Chorusarus will be released in late November 2014 and carries a US street price of $199.00.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
