The Corona ($129 street) offers Speed, Depth, FX Level, and
Tone controls, stereo inputs and outputs, and a mini toggle
with settings for Chorus, TonePrint, and Tri-Chorus—the
latter referring to the famed Roland Tri Stereo Chorus of the
1980s. The Corona also has an internal Kill-Dry switch that
removes all direct (dry) signal from the output when running
the Corona in an effects loop. A smart feature.
The Corona delivers sweet, tactile chorusing reminiscent of
sounds produced by the vintage Stereo Chorus + Pitch Modulator
& Flanger. At speeds varying from the slow, ’80s-style
chorusing we all know and love, to fast rotary speaker-like
effects, the Corona is a quiet and vibey-sounding pedal that
makes the chorusing sound completely integrated with whatever
you’re playing, as opposed to sounding slathered on.
The Tri-Chorus effects are particularly cool when going for
a multi-dimensional guitar sound in stereo, as this is where
you get the effect of three choruses running simultaneously
(with slightly different settings on each), which creates the
mesmerizing pitch-bend blur that made the original Tri-Stereo
Chorus such a hit.
KUDOS Deep, rich chorusing. Superb sound quality.
