Top Rated Electric Guitar Chorus Pedals for 2016

Electric guitar chorus pedals have been a staple on pedalboards for years.

Whether you’re trying to get the Tom Scholz Boston guitar sound or Eric Johnson’s spacey chorus a chorus pedal can be just plain fun.

I have bought and sold many chorus pedals and every time I regretted it. So, I bought another pedal.

Now a days I just put the chorus pedal aside when I feel like I’ve had enough of it. I always end up wanted to use it.

Boss CH-1 Stereo Super Chorus


The BOSS CH-1 Super Chorus pedal has been one of the most popular chorus pedals for years. Owning a few I can vouch that I really love this pedal. It gets the job done and it’s not overly expensive.

MXR M234 Analog Chorus Guitar Effects Pedal


As a gear head this is another pedal that I wish I’d have on my pedalboard. MXR makes solid pedals and have for years. This all-analog pedal uses bucket-brigade circuitry to create classically lush, liquid textures that you just can’t get with digital circuitry. Rate, Level, and Depth controls, as well as knobs for cutting High and Low frequencies, allow ultimate tone control. Like all MXR pedals, the M-234 Analog Chorus comes in a heavy-duty housing with durable jacks and switches for a lifetime on the road.

TC Electronic Corona Chorus Pedal


If you have never had a tc electronic pedal then you need to buy one just to see how awesome toneprint is. To change the current preset all you need to do is hold your phone up to your pickup and transmit the new toneprint to the pedal.  I have had several tc electronic pedals and toneprint has been apart of all of them. Pretty cool way to update the setting. This is a true bypass pedal as well.

Boss CE-5 Stereo Chorus Ensemble


We can’t mention the CH-1 without including the CE-5. Think of the CE-5 as an upgrade to the CH-1. Some describe the chorus sounds as “more lush”.  Steve Vai has been known to use CE-5 chorus pedals. I think the best way to think of the CE-5 is that is has more dynamic range than the CH-1. Both are great but if you budget can afford it go for the CE-5.
