Fender Competition Chorus Effects Pedal : Review

Competition Chorus

The Vintage look

Chorus, this is, simply, the name of this pedal of the Competition Series. The device is very simple, with the classic controls, a Vintage look and the added value, for a product in this price range, of the two outputs.

How it works

Basically, it is surprising, above all versatility. Controls are really efficient and the Mix knob lets you choose witch is the best balance between the original signal and the effect. It turns out suitable both to clean tones and distortions, and the result is always pleasant. Really surprising. As we can see in the image below, this pedal puts at user disposal the classic knobs for the Chorus, but, as we have said at the beginning of the review, it turns out much efficient. Fundamentally, despite the overall semplicity, we can consider this Fender product rather flexible. And the final result is very good.

Simple, but efficient


Another characteristic that makes the Competition Chorus rather flexible is the availability of two outputs. If we consider the price range, it costs only 65 euros, this is an important added value.

The available jacks


The quality/price ratio is really excellent. This device produces a quality sound, is versatile and always balanced, and it offers the added value of the two outputs. Another important characteristic. In spite of the analog circuit, it turns out really quite. This is, certainly, the proof of a modern and efficient electronics.

    ST-2 Power Stack

    The main characteristic is that it provides a wide range of tones, according to the volume changes, and with the addition of a 2-band equalizer. However, this distortion pedal is rather complex, and a brief experience is necessary.

  • VE-5
  • Vocal | Boss

    An interesting Boss product that can work with 4 batteries. It has been designed to be fast and easy to use. The result is valid. The built-in looper could be interesting, but it has too many limits, and loops cannot be stored.

  • MT-2 Metal Zone
  • Distortion | Boss
    MT-2 Metal Zone

    Perfect for Metal or Hard Rock, but not only. The equalization section is really complete and provides the adjusting of the frequency for the mids as well. The very long sustain is one of the most important characteristics of this Boss pedal.
