ALPHEN AAN DEN RIJN, NETHERLANDS — Pure, lush and warm, the guitar tones of yesteryear are alive and well thanks to NEXI Industries’ new Analog Chorus (CHO-01) guitar effects pedal. The player can call on the Chorus for many different styles of music and whenever a rich, thicker sound is needed. It’s “warm syrup” without the stickiness, leaving the player in full control of the tone they want to achieve. Whether this effect is used to broaden the arpeggiated chords of an 80s classic or to add depth to a modern dance jam, the Analog Chorus is a versatile pedal that players will want on their board’s regular lineup.
A chorus pedal essentially gives the effect of more than one guitar playing by doubling the original sound and then putting it slightly out of time and tune. NEXI’s Analog Chorus pedal has three onboard controls that give the player flexibility in how they dial in their tone. The Speed knob makes the wavering sound effect faster or slower, while the Depth knob controls how much effect the player gets. Or, switch the Ultra Classic knob to “on” for a pure effect that’s reminiscent of the early days when the chorus became popularized by some of the era’s most influential bands, including Pink Floyd, The Police and U2.
Like all NEXI pedals, the Analog Chorus was designed by boutique effect pedal creators, the self-declared “Vintage Analog Protection Squad,” who are committed to providing a unique tone without compromise. All NEXI pedals are true bypass and hybrid, and all are tailor-made to plug ‘n play. That means the Analog Chorus can be used standalone with a 9V battery or plugged right into the external power supply of NEXI’s revolutionary pedal board. Aptly named “The Solution,” this heavy-duty board has a two-channel switch and three-step booster to satisfy every guitarist’s ego. It’s also equipped with covers that protect ports against dirt and beverage spills (splash-proof), a built-in tuner and power supply, and two charging docks for tablet or smartphone. Players can rock confidently, knowing that their board—and their Analog Chorus pedal—are safe and sound.
The Analog Chorus pedal may be steeped in nostalgia, but it’s built with the durability, convenience and compatibility today’s players are seeking—and at the €99.95 (approx. USD $105) price point they can afford. Get a closer look and hear a demo at https://nexi.eu/products/analog-chorus.
