Review: Electro Harmonix Stereo Polychorus Pedal

Published 16:21 pm

It is no secret that Electro Harmonix is producing some of the most unique analog effects in existence.

The Stereo Poly Chorus unit is something that I never thought I would be into until I actually got a moment to sit down with it. This unit is an analog chorus, flanger and slapback echo.

Before, I thought this was something I would never be into using and now I think it is difficult to find a way to not be on top of it all the time. This unit is most assuredly an easy way to come up with some of the most unique sounds available. It is a very user friendly box. Its body is large and has an array of manipulating knobs and switches. You will not easily get boared when running through this stomp box.

Since in stereo, the top of the unit has a standard input and output. It has another output section. The differentiation here is determined because the outs are labeled as "output 2" and "mainoutput". There is an on/off switch at the top left pedal of the unit in case, for certain songs, you want to leave it off. It is true bypass so when disengaged, the pedal will not detract from your signal. Another great feature that so many EH pedals have.

There is a filter sweep switch at the top of the unit as well. First there is a Mode knob. This lets you select between Filter Matrix, Flange, Chorus and Double Track. The filter matrix sounds big and wavering. The Flange is gaseous and constantly up and down, in and out. The Chorus sounds like a chorus of angels, or demons, running lightly over your guitar work.

Double Track sounds like a quick, multi amp styled delay that is really useful for a megaphone kind of effect.

The knobs for tweaking the Mode are many. There is Width, Rate, Tune/Delay, and Feedback. Width will adjust how big the effect sounds sounds in your overall sound. Rate will change the pattern of wave length and speed by increasing to light speed or decreasing to a nauseous, slow churn.

Tune/Delay will change the amount of echo you have. Feedback will count the seconds before the effect decays longer when turned to the right, and shorter when dialed counter clockwise. This also has a lot to do with the relevance the effect has on your overall sound. It can overtake your original signal or lightly complement it.
