Radial Engineering Ltd. is pleased to announce the Bones Vienna Chorus, an analogue chorus pedal that features dual mode functionality to allow the guitarist to transition between a subtle choral effect for rhythm and quickly toggle to an exaggerated effect for soloing or special effects.
The heart of an analogue chorus is the bucket brigade chip. Alas, low noise versions of these, such as the highly regarded, Panasonic MN3007 have not been made for years. So we started scrounging the market to find these discontinued chips until we could put together a stash that was sufficiently large to go into production. We have thousands in stock and have built the Vienna in such a way that the MN3007 chip is socket-mounted for easy replacement. This is particularly important for our European customers, as we must be prepared to buy these back in an effort to conform to the no-lead initiatives for dumpsites. The Vienna Chorus had to be different and we achieved this by creating a dual-mode chorus pedal whereby the guitarist can toggle between a slight choral effect to an exaggerated tone for soloing. This really opens the door for sonic possibilities which will surely spur on the creative process. The Vienna Chorus follows the release of four other pedals in the Bones series. It features a compact footprint and employs standard, 9 volt powering for easy interface on any pedal board. Two independent channels with individual speed and intensity controls are provided for each to create two, very different sonic textures. With two foot switches, the Vienna can be bypassed, activated and toggled between channels quickly for on-the-fly effects. For even more fun, the Vienna is equipped with Turbo Mode to produce extreme chorusing effects. Requires standard, 9V power supply.
