EarthQuaker Sea Machine V3 Super Chorus Pedal
The Sea Machine has been a hidden gem of our line since 2010. While it features the classic "Rate", "Depth" and "Intensity" controls it also allows for wild manipulation ofpitch, space and wave form with the "An- imate", "Dimension" and "Shape" controls. We quietly discontinued it in the summer of 2014 to refine it into a smaller, more pedal board friendly package. While the heart of Sea Machine is exactly the same as the original, we refined the input circuitry to improve the noise floor, added an additional LED to show the rate of the oscillator (even in bypass), reduced the enclosure size and added fancy new graphics on a mirrored silver finish. Even though it is now a smaller package, all the same wild sounds are still available; from subtle warble, classic leslie, sea sick pitch bends, stunted arpeggiations, echoed-out shimmer and beyond.
I'm writing this about my recent purchase of the TC Elec. Dreamscape chorus. Outstanding value for £99! Snap one up. The closest comparison of goodness I can make of this pedal is to the MXR Chorus, which I've previously owned (which is amazing as well). But the Dreamscape takes the superior seat on this one, plus it's cheaper on top of that. Ok, so on to the tone. It is lush. It's transparent true bypass, so there's no tone suck with it. It has THREE different modulations: chorus, vibrato, flanger. Enough said. This is a lot of bang for your buck, imo. Nice sturdy dials too. Anyone who says they're wobbly and cheap have got their facts wrong. They're knurled metal, solid. Only one of the grub screws which secures it to the dial pot shaft was loose (not the shaft itself, sir lol), which was simply a matter of tightening it up. Job done. Buy one.
