A simple boutique style pedal that emulates the tones of a classic vintage chorus or a rotating Leslie effect.
The ModTone MT-CH Aqua Chorus is a compact buffered bypass boutique style guitar pedal that emulates the shimmering tones of a classic vintage chorus or rotating leslie effect. A simple 2-step knob configuration is all you need to add a liquid dimension to your tone. The "Rate" knob controls the speed (1Hz – 10Hz) of the liquid chorus effect while the "Depth" control how far down you want to dive! When used together the MT-CH Aqua Chorus expands your overdrive setting for a thick and hypnotic vibe while using it on a clean tone widens the harmonic fundamentals for a sound that nobody can ignore. From a subtle wash to an all out oceanic storm, the MT-CH Aqua Chorus does it all without any degrading signal loss or unwanted noise.
The MT-CH Aqua Chorus, like the whole family of ModTone chorus pedals, features period correct vintage style components, smooth linear taper pots, high impact switches built for the floor and top quality jacks for optimum tonal transfer. Get ready to set sail.

Comments about Modtone MT-CH Aqua Chorus Pedal:
After returning a relatively new, improved and great looking oddly shaped chorus that sounded AWFUL, I satisfied my curiosity and got the Modtone. I'm glad. The Aqua Chorus arrived not in a tough protective box with a warranty and stickers and all the usual propaganda, but a weird, kind of neat looking "box/case, with a lid that just flops over to the side and appears to stick with a magnet, with a little plastic window, no protective padding or printed word at all. A bit odd. Okay(?).
It has an abrasive clacking footswitch, is real light, you have to remove the back to switch batteries, which rattle loosely inside.
I wrapped the battery in a piece of bubble paper from a previous purchase and put it last in line after a Strat with Bill Lawrence L250's, an Electro Harmonix LPB-1 and Echo #1 into my Vox AC30C2. It is great sounding and has a cool kitschy look. And since I bought it for my back-up, or "mini board" - Get a bit tired of carrying "The Mothership" around - the MXR size is perfect. At the gig, where it counts, the footswitch, packaging and battery (I use a OneSpot) didn't matter.
At slow speed and medium/low depth, where it stays for my gigs it gets a slow leslie (Badge, Sun King) very nicely. Speed it up and you get into '80's stop-box / MTV territory real fast. Way up and you get the fast Leslie quite well (Cold Shot). Noise? Hardly any! And a bass cut that you can barely hear. The one I sent back was almost as noisy as my big brother's '69 Crown fuzz box and had a bass cut that was so extreme it was an output drop. It cost almost twice the Modtone. I don't know where these guys came from or who's designs their jumping off points are, but I may even go all Modtone for my mini board!
