Alexander Chesapeake Stereo Chorus Vibrato Pedal


$ 239.99

Product Details

Warning: Those who venture too far into the depths of the Chesapeake may be overcome by the harmonic waves and slip into a swirling, dream-like euphoria. Swim at your own risk.



Rate (Level) — Adjusts the rate of modulation from a slow swirl to a rapid flutter.  Turning this knob cancels the Tap Tempo setting.  Holding the Bypass / Level footswitch allows you to adjust the overall volume of the effect.  The pedal stores this setting in its memory for future use.

Depth — Controls the amount of modulation from subtle to intense.

Color — Adjusts the tone or character of the chorus effect.

Mix — Blends between the dry and the modulated signals. 

*Hint: For pitch vibrato, set the Mix knob fully clockwise.

Tap Tempo / Division - tap twice to set the modulation rate.  The LED above the Tap switch flashes to indicate the current rate and division.  Hold to cycle between quarter-note (green,) eighth-note (orange) and half-note (red) tap tempo divisions. 

Remote Tap Tempo Jack - connect a normally-open momentary footswitch to this jack to set the modulation time remotely. Hold down the remote footswitch to change tap divisions.

*Hint - the Mix knob changes the character of the sound dramatically.  High Mix settings yield a pitch vibrato in Ensemble and Dimension modes, and a more intense tremolo + vibrato effect in Rotary mode.


Mode Toggle:

Ensemble — Traditional single-voice chorus tones live here.  The dry signal is mixed with a varying time-delayed signal, resulting in a shifting, bubbling thickening effect.  The Color knob controls the tone of the chorus voice, allowing the effect to be more or less present in the mix.

Dimension - Adds a second chorus voice sweeping opposite from the first, designed to reduce the characteristic "warble." This mode produces a less animated, more subtle thickening of the signal and sounds great clean or distorted.  The Color knob controls the brightness of the chorus tone.

Rotary - combines a sweet chorus with a smooth tremolo to mimic a rotating speaker effect.  The Color knob controls the balance between the upper rotor vibrato and the lower rotor tremolo tones.
