A versatile analog chorus pedal in the 300 series from Rowin, you’ll find a great sound in seconds of fiddling and the tone will not disappoint. This pedal is for every Cure, Smashing Pumpkins, The Cult or Nirvana fan, and for everyone else in between. It’s also for pretty much every electric guitarist ever, as multi FX boxes can only take you tonally so far.
- Analog circuitry with true bypass
The vital difference between analog and digital circuitry is understood just as we can sometimes see pixels in digital images. Viewed from afar, the digital recreation of an analog wave signal may seem smooth, but when you look closely there are tiny discrete steps as the signal tries to approximate values. Analog waves are smooth and continuous, digital waves are stepping, square, and discrete.
- There was a reason it was over-used in the 80s
Chorus used as a subtle effect on a warm synth or searing guitar riff – there’s just nothing else like it. Most people have a chorus pedal on their pedalboards, and with the compact size it saves a lot of contention from other pedals – for this size and price, it’s the only chorus pedal your rig could ever need. Used with minimal rate and depth, with as much or little level as you’d like, and you’ll hear that sweet polished syrupy wet tones reminding you of 90s alternative mixtapes.
- BBD chip – yes this is a Boss CE-1 and CE-2 clone
The MN3007 chips used in the LEF-304 are based on the cutely called Bucket Brigade Devices – or BBDs for short. The capacitors within the IC work with power like firemen passing along buckets of water. Hence the name! Geek out on more BBD chip info here.
