I own this Dunlop re-issue of the 70's MXR stereo chorus. Run in mono or stereo (I use 2 amps and run stereo) and you get the widest, deepest true sound clean or WITH distortion. It does not wash out your overdriven sound. Fantastic with a compressor to get the early Police sounds (Mesg in a Bottle, Walkin on the Moon). It is built like a tank. Added values over the original;: treble and bass boost, mono only out, AND A LIGHT to see when active! This is THEEE one to get. A little pricey but Dunlop really did a good job recreating the sound. I never play without it.

If you put this chorus in front of a distortion pedal or a distorted amp you get a massive amount of hiss when the pedal is bypassed. It is not a true bypass pedal and the FET buffered bypass adds a significant amount of noise to your system. It's why Boss pedals suck tone when you have a chain of them. I sold my M134 because of this, and the sound wasn't worth using either.

The sound of the effect itself it pretty average. It definitely has a certain MXR Chorus sound, they're all the same. I had the Zakk Wylde, the Micro Chorus, this one and the M234 and they all sound pretty bad in my opinion.

It's kind of a love it or hate it though, some people might like the sound. I find it pretty dead sounding.

I've owned a lot of chorus pedals, about 40-50 of them. I recommend the Electro-Harmonix Neo Clone. I've gone back to that pedal 3 times now. It's nearly perfect for lush clean chorus sounds. One to stay away is the Electro-Harmonix Polychorus. It's the worst so called "chorus" (it shouldn't be called chorus) I've ever used.

      Comments about MXR M-134 Stereo Chorus Pedal:

      I went through a phase where I thought MXR could do no wrong, until I bought this one. It looks nice and is built solid, for sure. The sound you get is average, at best. and seems somewhat limited. It is not a fun pedal to play with, if you are one that likes to squeeze the life out of a pedal in search of the perfect tone. For the price you pay can save a lot of money and get a Boss chorus, which offers more variety.

        Comments about MXR M-134 Stereo Chorus Pedal:

        I've wanted one this since the early 80's. It's a great effect, and much better than the Digitech I had before. I love the sound.

        Be warned this is an 18 volt pedal. I tried one of the voltage doublers (Voodoo Labs adapter) but it couldn't keep up the current - squealed like a stuck pig. I've ordered an 18v wall wart, but I'm using batteries (two 9 volts) until it arrives. If you have a pedalboard, be warned you might not be able to use your 9v power source.

        Great pedal, great sound

        By ERIK SYNDER

        from Bellingham, WA

        Comments about MXR M-134 Stereo Chorus Pedal:

        The reason this pedal is more than other chorus pedals is because you get what you pay for....it IS better. The stereo output option is a must, even if you don't have immediate plans to run stereo, it's nice to expand later without having to buy another pedal. The effect is beautiful and shimmering, and the control knobs offer many different settings to suit your needs. The low pass filter is a nice feature even though I don't use it. All in all this pedal is well worth the money for the years of sounds you'll get out of it.

        Comments about MXR M-134 Stereo Chorus Pedal:

        I,ve been looking for a chorus that sounded like my old Boss ce-2 that I lost in Hurricane Katrina. Everything I would demo sounded thin. When I heard the demo of it, I knew this was me. I,ve been playing for 49 yrs and the sound is right for me, but I can understand if someone may not like it. They may not know what a real chorus should sound like. In their defense, if you grew up in a time when you didn't hear the lush sounding chorus of the past, I probably would have bought a lesser grade chorus also. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a real chorus pedal.

        Comments about MXR M-134 Stereo Chorus Pedal:

        This pedal is great, the only con as I stated is the size. Outside of that I prefer this over some of the other chorus pedals I've mucked about with. Really like the tone control with the bass filter. You can really fine tune your chorus tone with the EQ/Intensity Width Rate controls... Just a tiny bit of chorus to sweeten up some mellow strumming or you can crank it up for a more sweeping chorus effect. I personally just keep it a little more 'mellow' on the rate which seems to keep it versital enough to use clean and with some overdrive. I'd say go for it, MXR pedals are rock solid in their construction (so far I've got 4 on my pedalboard love 'em all).
        I would say see if you can find a used one as, in my opinion the price is a little steep.

        M-134 Stereo Chorus - Fail...

        By 0m394

        from SCL

        About Me Experienced

        Comments about MXR M-134 Stereo Chorus Pedal:

        I bought one of these expecting a terrific addition to my pedalboard. Instead, I just got some nice non-working pedal. Neither MF nor MXR could provide any help, since I live abroad.

        The one I bougth was a return from a previous customer. It was marked "Like New", "Mint Condition" by MF. It seems that nobody actually tested the pedal, since the only thing you can get from it is noise, but given the fact the paint job was untouched, I guess somebody just marked it like that.

        So, if you are thinking on buying it, be sure you have some means to return it if some problem arises, since I am not the only one who has suffer the same issue from the MXR Stereo Chorus.

        Regards.

        Worth the Cash!

        By aaron wood

        from Michigan

        Comments about MXR M-134 Stereo Chorus Pedal:

        I admit, the price is definitely tough to swallow. I'm telling you though, you will not be disappointed. What a terrific pedal. Sure, it needs 18 volts of power but it does come with an adapter. I run this pedal seperate and power the rest of my board with the voodoo power supply. Easy as pie. What a sound! I had originally purchased the MXR Micro Chorus because I wanted to save some cash but I ended up being disappointed with the noise that it was producing. The effect was wonderful, the noise was not. I immediately wanted to eliminate the unwanted noise so I exchanged it for the MXR Stereo Chorus. What a difference. A customizable chorus that is dead silent on my board. Now I have a distict tone that I doubt anyone in my area can match. I can't see myself playing completely clean again. This pedal can beef up your chords and make your solos pierce through the mix. Using the treble and bass controls, you can customize your settings and create a beautiful clean-type tone. With or without overdrive/distortion, this pedal sounds great. If you are a tone freak, look no further. Stop thinking about it and buy it. If you don't mind unwanted noise with a straight chorus and no options for customization, pick up the MXR Micro Chorus. I would definitely buy it again if it tanked.

        Not what I expected

        By Boogie Man-XlPAp

        from Black Hills

        Comments about MXR M-134 Stereo Chorus Pedal:

        I had high hopes for this chorus as I have many other MXR effects, but this was a total dud. The tone is just not very good. I could not find the sound I was loking for and hoping for with this unit. I decided that my Boss CE-20 was by far the better choice over this.

        I LOVE my yellow brick!

        By Surfinboy

        from Boston, MA

        Comments about MXR M-134 Stereo Chorus Pedal:

        I've tried dozens of choruses and I'm always seduced back to the MXR Stereo Chorus. MXR really hit on something special with this yellow brick. Most other choruses sound too contrived or over-the-top, but there's something else going on here. There's something absolutely haunting and provocative about the M134's sound. I'll concede there are other pedals that may have a slightly wider range of sounds (with adjustable delay time, etc.) and the 18V adapter is a minor inconvenience, but to my ears none have the raw tonal beauty of the M134.
