  • Updated analog chorus based on vintage 80’s CS-9
  • Wide range of standard chorus effects
  • Unique “spatial” effects unavailable with other chorus units
  • Panasonic MN3207 Bucket Brigade IC
  • Delay Time and Effect Blend controls
  • Stereo outputs
  • True Bypass Switching

With a circuit based around the Panasonic MN3207 Bucket Brigade IC, the CS-9 Pro’s chorus effect is bold and resonant without sounding harsh.  Unlike the somewhat sterile sounds of its 80’s predecessor, the CS-9 Pro has an edgy, almost grainy quality that keeps your tone articulate and prevents wash-out.

The CS-9 Pro’s custom-tuned oscillator circuit provides enough speed for authentic rotary speaker simulation, and just the right amount of modulation for a lush vibrato that won't leave you feeling queasy.

With its Delay Time control the CS-9 Pro can venture into Flanger territory, adding a resonant, hollow quality to the effect that’s great for solos.

A top-mounted Blend control allows you to adjust the level of the Chorus effect to set it back in the mix against your dry signal.

A unique feature of the CS-9 Pro is its ability to create spatial effects that add dimension to your guitar tone without the traditional Chorus wobble.  With Speed and Depth set low and the Delay Time at max, the Pro thickens your sound much in the manner of a double-tracked guitar, adding girth and life without excessive modulation.

The CS-9 Pro features stereo outputs for mono, stereo, or inverted mono signal routing.

The CS-9 Pro is essentially the same as Maxon’s CS550, but in a smaller chassis and with battery or AC power options.

TECH TALK:

The CS-9 Pro circuit is similar to the Arion SCH-1 Stereo Chorus, or an updated Boss Chorus Ensemble.  A high-impedance input buffer passes next into a Compander stage that acts as a compressor/expander, bringing the input level of the signal up to an ideal output level and keeping it there as the signal decays – this provides a good signal-to-noise ratio and gives the chorusing section a nice, steady signal to modulate.

The Chorus effect is produced by a Panasonic MN3102 low-voltage clock driver IC and a Panasonic MN3207 BBD IC which is controlled by the MN3102.  Though the 3207/3201 combo has less delay range than other BBD’s of this type, the difference is negligible and the inherent decay of signal quality adds “vintage lo-fi warmth” to the signal.

After the Chorus section, the signal hits another Compander to level everything out and is then fed to an output buffer.

At the end of the circuit the signal is phase-split and sent to the two low-impedance stereo outputs - Output A is in-phase and Output B is phase inverted (90 degrees out of phase).

The CS-9 Pro features Mechanical True Bypass switching on both outputs via a Fujisoku 4PDT switch.

    Warranty & Returns

    All New products are covered by the manufacturers new warranty. Please check their website for the length of warranty and warranty conditions. If an item you receive is faulty get in touch with us ASAP. Second Hand products come with a 4 week warranty from us. If there is an issue let us know ASAP! This covers normal use and does not cover accidental damage, misuse, wrong power plugged into it, modding, water damage or any other damage caused by mistreatment. Just treat it nice and all will be good!

    Shipping

    We send A LOT of packages every week so don't worry about the shipping side of things!

    We've never lost a thing and your awesome new gear will be packed up really well to avoid any damage in transit.

    If your order comes in before 2pm we will ship it same day. Most of the time we pack things up all the way to 4pm so just call if you need it to leave same day after 2pm.

    We ship mainly with Australia Post but may use a courier depending on location and size of the package.

    Free Post ships with Australia Post standard and expected shipping times are between 4-6 business days depending on location. It will be longer to outside of metro and rural areas.

    Express Post will usually be with you next business day in metro areas of QLD, NSW, SA, VIC and TAS. WA will take 2 days to metro and extra days after that to out side metro and rural areas.

    Everything we ship has a tracking number with the exception of some power cables and smaller envelope packages. You will be emailed tracking once your order has been shipped!
