Tech 21 Releases Boost Chorus Bass Pedal

Tech 21 Boost Chorus bass pedalTech 21 has unveiled a new two new Boost Chorus pedals, including a bass specific version. The new Boost Chorus Bass, which can be used to obtain slapback, echo, flanging, and doubling effects, was designed after ‘70s vintage choruses, to mimic their richness.

To get a chorus sound without making “seasick tones,” Tech 21 added a Detune knob that adds girth by adjusting the pitch of the second voice, even when the Speed and Depth controls are set to minimum. Of course, you can still turn them up for more modulation. A Multi-Voice switch also thickens up your sound by throwing in additional voicings.

The Boost Chorus Bass has all-analog Tone and Level Controls, as well as an all-analog Mix knob that gives you everywhere from 0-100% wet. The pedal is powered by either a 9V battery or optional DC power supply, and features Buffered Bypass, which reduces pops and clicks while eliminating signal loss. It is available for an MSRP of $249, with Street price being closer to $190.
