Buzzing Bugs Audio Introduces the BB03 Lo-Fi Chorus Pedal

The BB03 Lo-Fi Chorus is a flexible analogue modulation machine, designed to emulate the warm, woozy, and decayed saturation of vintage chorus, worn-out cassette tapes, and warped vinyl records.


Buzzing Bugs Audio Devices, one of the UK’s most exciting new pedal brands, has introduced their newest creation, the BB03 Lo-Fi Chorus.

This flexible analog modulation machine is painstakingly designed to emulate the warm, woozy, and decayed saturation of vintage chorus, worn-out cassette tapes, and warped vinyl records. Its five control knobs allow you to control the amount “aging” and warble of your guitar tone, so you can fine-tune your signal with just the right amount of decayed beauty.

Like the company’s previous creations, including the BB01 Fuzz Pre-Amp, the BB03 Lo-Fi Chorus stands out with its undeniable character. The BB03 Lo-Fi Chorus captures the essence of vintage analog imperfections, each element dynamically interacting to provide a myriad of tone-shaping possibilities.

  • ROOM - clipped echo/slapback
  • DEPTH - controls depth of the oscillation
  • TIME - controls the speed of the oscillation
  • MIX - combines the clean guitar signal with the modulated effect, to control between chorus or vibrato
  • AGE - alters the oscillation wave, ‘detuning’ the wave for woozy, worn-out sound
  • True bypass switching
  • Hand-built in England using diecast, robust metal enclosure
  • Top-mounted jacks for maximum pedalboard efficiency
  • 9vDC standard center negative input – external power only, no battery compartment
The BB03 Lo-Fi Chorus has a price of £149.00.

On her eighth studio release, the electroacoustic art-rock guitarist and producer animates an extension of the strange and singular voice she’s been honing since her debut in 2007.

“Did you grow up Unitarian?” Annie Clark asks me. We’re sitting in a control room at Electric Lady Studios in New York’s West Village, and I’ve just explained my personal belief system to her, to see if Clark, aka St. Vincent, might relate and return the favor. After all, does she not possess a kind of sainthood worth inquiring about?

​Luther Perkins' 1953 Esquire & a '59 Burst!
Johnny Cash Guitarist Luther Perkins' 1953 Esquire & John Carter Cash's 1959 Gibson Les Paul Burst!

This 1953 Fender Esquire belonged to Luther Perkins, who was a member of Cash’s first recording bands and played on all of the Man in Black’s foundational recordings for Sun Records—likely with this guitar. Perkins played this instrument during the period when Cash classics from “I Walk the Line” to “Folsom Prison Blues” were cut. John Carter Cash bought this 1959 Gibson Les Paul at Gruhn’s in Nashville. It has a neck that is atypically slim for its vintage and appears as part of the psychedelic guitar interplay on the Songwriter song “Drive On.”
