DLS Effects Releases Stereo Chorus Waves

The pedal has dual outputs for stereo or mono use, and Rate, Depth, Width, and Blend controls for a variety of chorus, vibrato, and rotary sounds.

Rochester, NY (March 8, 2011) -- DLS Effects has announced the Chorus Waves pedal, designed to produce chorusing from thick to transparent and everything in between.

The Chorus Waves has two output choices: the more organic-sounding OUTA and the slightly brighter OUTB. The outputs can be used individually for mono or together for stereo. Controls include Width, Depth, and Rate, which together give you a variety of chorus, vibrato, and even rotary sounds. The pedal also features a Blend pot to mix in as much analog instrument with lush Chorus Waves as desired. The Chorus Waves is true bypass, constructed using a heavy steel enclosure, steel switches, and steel pots to withstand every road environment. DLS products are all custom crafted in the USA! Street $199.

The emotional wallop of the acoustic guitar sometimes flies under the radar. Even if you mostly play electric, here are some things to consider about unplugging.

I have a love-hate relationship with acoustic guitars. My infatuation with the 6-string really blasted off with the Ventures. That’s the sound I wanted, and the way to get it was powered by electricity. Before I’d even held a guitar, I knew I wanted a Mosrite, which I was sure was made of fiberglass like the surfboards the Beach Boys, Surfaris, and the Challengers rode in their off time. Bristling with space-age switchgear and chrome-plated hardware, those solidbody hotrod guitars were the fighter jets of my musical dreams. I didn’t even know what those old-timey round-hole guitars were called. As the singing cowboys Roy Rogers and Gene Autrey strummed off into the sunset, the pace of technology pushed the look and sound of the electric guitar (and bass) into the limelight and into my heart. Imagine my disappointment when I had to begin my guitar tutelage on a rented Gibson “student” acoustic. At least it sort of looked like the ones the Beatles occasionally played. Even so, I couldn’t wait to trade it in.
