    I really get the feeling we are not going to get an Eventide sound, out of an MXR/Dunlop product.

    Consider the royalty complexities, and legal ramifications, OMG!


    (Maybe someday, Dunlop will acquire Eventide, stranger things have happened)

    I think you're right, yet would love to be proven wrong! Yet... As you pointed out, they already have several chorus pedals on the market. If this is just 'bare bones' I won't buy it just for the stripes! Sorry, Ed.

    Tbh, I'm thinking of selling my EVH flanger and getting something smaller for the board. Boss? TC? We'll see.

    I'd say, if you hate a pedal, by all means sell it, but...
    if you kinda like a pedal, hold on to it, because someday you'll probably be very glad that you did.

    My Phase 90 sat in a suitcase for decades, and I almost sold it off countless times.
    When I got back into VH a few years ago, I was so glad I still had it.

    It seems pedals' sentimental value, is greater than their street value, most of the time.
    I think this new EVH chorus may fall into this category, eventually, so I plan on getting one, regardless of it's possible pitfalls, or otherwise shortcomings.


    Unless I hate it, because then I'll sell it of course

    Thought I'd offer my 2 cents...

    Sorry to burst anyone's bubble, but to the best of my knowledge, this is an analog chorus and not a digital detune pedal. You won't get 'that' Eventide sound out of this. There's a site that shows the circuit board, and I'm almost positive it's an analog circuit. Once we can see the power requirements of the pedal we'll know for sure.

    This looks to be an MXR 'clone' of a rack mount Roland DC-30, but without exclusively announcing it. A DC-30 was used in his live rig in the early 80's in place of the Eventide 910 or 949 that was used in the studio.

    Also looks like this pedal is 'limited' in release. I don't yet know what the means, but given MXR's history of limited releases (such as the Shin Juku Drive) they will either 1. mass-produce this for a year or less then stop. Or, 2. market this as they did with the EVH Anniversary Flangers and Phasers where they only make so many and come with a certificate and all that bullshit.

    Sorry, I'm too lazy to embed pics...

    Note the controls of the 5150 Chorus:
    https://images.guitarguitar.co.uk/cd...27427008f.jpg?

    Now note the controls of a vintage Roland DC-30:
    https://medias.audiofanzine.com/imag...-30-426588.jpg

    Ed's early-80's rack for reference:
    https://www.premierguitar.com/ext/re...53ff65844f.JPG

    You'll see the controls are almost identical. Interesting that the pic of Ed's rack shows the DC-30 on Echo mode though. Again, most of this is 'educated speculation' at the very best.

    As for Allen's comments for Little Guitars: I really think you could get 'that' sound with either a chorus or the Eventide detune. I too have an H9 though, and Allen's demo is DEAD-ON from my perspective. That IS the sound and tone. HOWEVER, Turnbuckle has a good point as well: I too hear modulation on the breakdown of Little Guitars--VERY chorus sounding. I hear the chorus 'warble.'

    As for Pretty Woman, to my ears, that sounds like a chorus. Not the detune you hear on Fair Warning, 1984, or 5150 and beyond.

    I'm pretty certain an Eventide H949, then a H3000 was used live (and in studio) from the 5150 tour up through the Balance tour and never a chorus pedal during that time. The first time I saw a chorus pedal was after Sammy was gone--the MXR 'Stereo Chorus' yellow brick, then the MXR blue Analog Chorus, before going with the Boss Chorus.

    Point is, WHO the hell knows!? If YOU like how it sounds using ________ then use THAT!

    I've got a Boss PH-2 (two of them, actually. I always get spares!). The "Unchained" sound is in there, just as good as the Dunlop (which I also have two of, but just the M-117R, not the EVH). It won't get quite as crazy if you want to explore other sounds, but for your "Unchained" and "Barracuda" sounds, they're in there.

    I used to have a Boss flanger several years ago. The purple one... Then I went into the multi pedal thing for quite a while for gigging and recording. Now I'm back to basic stomp boxes feeding a clean amp.

    What settings do you use on your flanger for VH sounds? I'm thinking Unchained, Mean Street, HAIL, ATBL, Aftershock, etc.

    I just checked, and this is how I had it last set, so this must be it. I pretty much tried to dial that sound in and then left it. One size fits all!

    Just noticed it's the BF-2, no the PH-2, that's the phaser. Also, the 2's are analog, the models that followed were digital. The ones with black knobs are supposedly made in Japan and "sound better" and will cost more. I'm fine with this.

    Awesome. Thanks, man!

    Default MXR EVH 5150 Chorus Details

    Sounds great to me, but Pete thorn could make a hello kitty Strat through a Dollar store walkie-talkie sound good.

    Too bad itís also pretty giant. Would be fun to experiment with, but Iíd never commit that much space to a chorus pedal on my board.

    1. Wow, he can play. Nice job!
    2. Someone download the video before WBR makes him remove it...he played entire songs!
    3. That's one heck of a pedal. I'm still blown away at how good Cathedral sounds.

    I just bought an MXR analog chorus, but this is going to be very tempting

    If you've never heard of Pete Thorn check out some of his other pedal demos or his two albums, "Guitar Nerd" and "Pete Thorn II" - he's an amazing player, super influenced by Ed, and is friends with him. Ed gave him that Wolfgang that he uses in the video.

    Can you imagine getting a call, "Hey Steve, it's Eddie van Halen. The colour of the light is wrong on the Chorus...."

    Some of the lines these guys come up with to prove Ed's intense involvement are fucking ridiculous. I hope fans still don't get giddy over shit like that. And if that's a true story, Ed's a fucking dick.

    If the colour of the light is wrong than tell them what fuckin' colour you want, Ed.
