Old Blood Noise Endeavors BL-82 Chorus offers what they describe as an ode to delay time, a device with a variable clock control to shift between a recognizable shimmering chorus and chaotic modulated delay.

OBNE BL-82 Chorus

This OBNE BL-82 Chorus pedal takes the standard chorus pedal and turns it on its head. It is related to their BL-4 Clock Reverse Effector in terms of the layout.

Both of the pedals feature artwork by Brandy M. Patterson of Manchester, New Hampshire and each has a slider control as part of the user interface.

Controls

The main standout control is the Clock slider and this is used to change the effect from fast and fidelitous to slow and degraded.

It can be used in conjunction with the Feedback knob which is used to enhance the intensity of the chorus and increase the number of delay repeats. The last two controls are relatively self-explanatory, Mix controls the dry/wet mix and Volume controls the overall volume of the effect itself.

Soft Touch

As ever with OBNE this pedal uses a soft touch footswitch to engage or bypass the effect and will run from a standard 9V DC power supply.

My only gripe is that I would have much preferred top-mounted input and output jack sockets, along with the power input. As I find side-mounted jacks waste a lot of pedalboard real estate.

    Two LFOs that flip opposite to each other? When one changes, the other changes to its opposite? Sounds like quantum entanglement. Spooky action at a distance. I like this pedal
