In this interview from PremeirGuitar.com, the front-man and lead guitarist of Children of Bodom, Alexia Laiho, is asked about what gear he uses. When asked what pedals he uses, he claims he uses only one. Below is a quote from said interview. "I only use an MXR Stereo Chorus. That’s all I need really. I don’t fuck around with effects that much. I like to keep it rock ’n’ roll: one good guitar sound and the rest is up to me." - Alexi Laihomore
According to this scanned copy of the publication *The Armoury Show*, John is shown as using a "Stereo Chorus" in his pedalboard. In [this article](http://www.armouryshow.com/media/interviews/1985-11-00_The_Guitarist-John_mcgeoch_01.jpg) from the same publication John says "All the effects are MXR except the overdrive" which proves John's use of the MXR M134.more

A super-flexible, ultraclean range of effects!
The gorgeous-sounding MXR M-134 Stereo Chorus Pedal will remind you how cool chorus can be. Want to add sparkle to clean-toned arpeggios? Animate strummed passages? Widen and fatten distorted power chords? This box will do it all, cleanly and quietly. Set the Rate and Width controls to your liking and then dial in as much effect as you want with the Intensity knob. You can then shape the tone even further by EQ-ing the modulated frequencies with the bass and treble controls. Run in mono or use the stereo outputs for a huge, vibrant sound. If you're looking to preserve the low end of your guitar tone, the MXR Stereo Chorus has got you covered with its Bass Filter button that applies the effect to the high frequencies only.
It's awesome. Period. Since i got it that it is always on, slow and wide. You can really shape and fine tune your chorus for multiple combinations, and guess what, they all sound killer. (have you hear it through a synthesizer or bass? the stereo just slays.....)
Since i play an 8 string the bass cut feature is an exceptional tool to keep my low end tight and retaining that choirish vibe on the medium and top end.
Super versatile, awesome sound, superb 100% analog construction. No true bypass, but honestly i can't tell the difference in the sound.
I also love the blinking led. It blinks in time with the rate of the chorus, it's just cool to have it there and visualize what your doing to your sound.
100% analog circuit, lush and warm tone, huge headroom (runs on 18v) and very tweakable. Probably the best chorus ever which allows user to dial into wide range of sounds - from classic cheesy 80s leads to leslie-a-like and everything in between. It is worth to experiment with its placement. Also you can use as a kind of post-gain EQ. I dig the blinking led light, it allows you to see how fast is the modulation.
I didn't know I still had one of these... its a 90s version. It sounds good and has lots of useful features versus like a small clone or CE2 but its therefore harder to dial in because there are lots of bad settings. he stereo is VERY stereo sounding when you make use of it. Great for synthesizers and worth a shot when you're mixing a record and want to add some swirl to your echo sends. Sold, since having the TC reissue analog chorus/flange I never touched this even for true stereo duty. The tone controls for the wet signal are cool, but its inferior to the TC unit in every other way right down to the TC having true stereo input and the ability to change the input gain for synths and mixing...
Pros: Highly responsive EQ| dynamic use of the oscillation to calibrate the pedal between a rotary and a flangy chorus| Warm analog sound. Cons: Need 18v| Lack of Dry/Wet knob| Maybe too big for some pedalboards For me it's between to category of chorus 1) the little packege user friendly pedal 2) big, sofisticated and expensive pedal Can I get the same tone with the micro version? NOPE. Can I get the same tone with a Boss CE3? Yes Can I find something better for the price? Yes, but not analog
