Vs Audio Effects Unveils the Alchemy MKII Chorus

Vs Audio Effects Unveils the Alchemy MKII Chorus

A chorus pedal with vintage tones, analog processing, and tap tempo control.


Adding to the company’s line of boutique effects pedals, Vs Audio effects introduces the Alchemy MKII chorus, designed to offer unprecedented digital control in an all-analog signal path modulation machine. The Alchemy MKII, a versatile chorus whose classic vintage tones harken back to the 80’s, is ideal for the player who demands analog processing in their signal chain. With 6 analog presets, tap tempo functionality, the technology in this pedal bridges the gap between the analog tone many players crave and the modern, digital tweak-ability that they demand. The Alchemy MKII added delay knob will provide greater definition and nuance to everything from hi-fi chorus to ultra-warm modulation. This innovative design also promises a reduction in noise and a wider speed and intensity chorus range.

Features

  • Four knobs to control Mix, Delay, Speed and Depth.
  • 6 editable favorite presets.
  • Tap tempo Control: Set the rate of the LFO.
  • Mono In/Stereo Out Jacks for actual “pseudo-stereo” action instead of “Wet/Dry” stereo.
  • Relay switching (True Bypass).

Over the course of his long career, the Rush guitarist has shape-shifted through the classic rock universe. From mid-’70s hard rock through the band’s more progressive tendencies, into the beating heart of the ’80s, and finding a (relatively) leaner approach by the turn of the century, Lifeson—aka Lerxst—always found a new way to add space and dimension to Rush’s dense sound. Lifeson’s unique lead and rhythm playing has been celebrated with a range of signature gear that speaks to his broad sonic palette.

John Mayall in the late ’80s, in a promo shot for his Island Records years. During his carreer, he also recorded for the Decca (with the early Bluesbreakers lineups), Polydor, ABC, DJM, Silvertone, Eagle, and Forty Below labels.

He was dubbed “the father of British blues,” but Mayall’s influence was worldwide, and he nurtured some of the finest guitarists in the genre, including Eric Clapton, Peter Green, Mick Taylor, Harvey Mandel, Coco Montoya, and Walter Trout. Mayall died at his California home on Monday, at age 90.

John Mayall’s career spanned nearly 70 years, but it only took his first four albums to cement his legendary status. With his initial releases with his band the Bluesbreakers—1966’s Blues Breakers with Eric Clapton; ’67’s A Hard Road, with Peter Green on guitar; plus the same year’s Crusade, which showcased Mick Taylor—and his solo debut The Blues Alone, also from 1967, Mayall introduced an international audience of young white fans to the decidedly Black and decidedly American genre called blues. In the subsequent decades, he maintained an active touring and recording schedule until March 26, 2022, when he played his last gig at age 87. It was reported that he died peacefully, on Monday, in his California home, at 90.
