MXR Chorus

By the early 80's MXR had gained the reputation of one of the best in the business for creating studio effect devices in the industry. Before the age of digital technology these large boxes contained state of the art analog circuitry to produce lush sounding tones for recording. One example is the MXR box logo chorus which many players like Randy Rhoades used in the making of ground-breaking albums. This unit was re-released due to it's popularity but the original is still sought after. These units were pricey for the time and out of the reach of many guitar players but still considered a bargain today on EBay. Although digital effects are more prevalent on the market, nothing can match the original analog organic lushness of this watery effect. For more info on the reissue product please see...
