Dunlop MXR EVH 5150 Chorus

Dunlop is here at NAMM showing off the new MXR EVH 5150 Chorus that's based on the chorus unit Ed used on some of Van Halen's most revered recordings from the early '80s. With three dials for volume, tone, and intensity, the pedal also has input- and output-level pad switches, mono and stereo outputs, and an internal true/buffered bypass switch.

A maze of modulation and reverberations leads down many colorful tone vortices.

Deep clanging reverb tones. Unexpected reverb/modulation combinations.

Steep learning curve for a superficially simple pedal.

A lot of cruel fates can befall a gig. But unless you’re a complete pedal addict or live in high-gain-only realms, doing a gig with just a reverb- and tremolo-equipped amp is not one of them. Usually a nice splash of reverb makes the lamest tone pretty okay. Add a little tremolo on top and you have to work to not be at least a little funky, surfy, or spacy. You see, reverb and modulation go together like beans and rice. That truth, it seems, extends even to maximalist expressions of that formula—like the SolidGold FX Ether.
