                           Chorus XII

Carl Martin Chorus xII is a dual stereo chorus foot pedal. Designed by Canadian electronics wizard Daniel Van Kranendonk, the unit is the result of five years of careful research and development.

It has two identical but independent sets of speed and depth controls. Each "chorus" has an LED indicator that lights up when in use and also flashes an indication of the speed setting.

The Chorus xII has a stereo output via two quarter inch jacks. The "on" switch allows you to engage or bypass the chorus. The "select" switch allows you to switch between the two chorus settings mid song or mid set without having to get down on your knees alter the controls.

The Carl Martin Chorus xII is the perfect choice for guitar, bass or keyboards. It is unbelievably rich in sound, totally quiet, and most important of all, does not change the basic sound.

The Carl Martin Chorus xII has a built in, regulated (+-12V) power supply which enables us to design circuitry of the highest quality with maximum headroom.


Australian Guitar Magazine (AU) May 2002. Chorus XII
My biggest gripe with chorus pedals in general is that they all too often sound completely synthetic, with no hint of an organic guitar sound behind the wash of effect. The Chorus XII overcomes this more than any chorus pedal 1've ever encountered.
This is a chorus pedal that is worthy of a place between an AC30 and Gibson 335, a complement to great tone and great playing, rather than a mask for the opposite of those things.

This is another example of how Carl Martin is coming up with ingenious ways of improving on basic effect pedals.
Within its range of extremely usable sounds, it works incredibly well.
Do you want to know what impressed me most? Well, it's just so quiet.

Make me remember what I used to like about stereo chorus.
