The Roland Juno-60’s beloved chorus circuit will soon be available in pedal form, thanks to a premium reproduction created by Made On Earth (MOE).
MOE has described the pedal as a “perfect clone” of the original circuit, built with Xvive MN3009 bucket-brigade chips, the original (and rare) Panasonic MN3101 chips and with original transistors 2SC1815, 2SA1015 and 2SK30A-GR.
The Analog Chorus 60 also expands on the features offered in the original, with an input gain knob, stereo width, modulation depth and modulation rate controls, along with an external CV input to replace the internal LFO.
The pedal has a mono TS input and two TS outputs and is powered by a 9V power supply (sadly not included). The enclosure is aluminium and has some great-looking graphics that pay tribute to the aesthetic of the original.
To show off the capabilities of the Analog Chorus 60, MOE has shared several demos of different synths – the Roland SH-101, MiniMoog Model D and Yamaha DX7 (heard below) – played through the pedal.
Here’s what it sounds like in action:
The Analog Chorus 60 is now available for pre-order now at 1,700₪ (roughly £386). Its first run will be just 25 units. You can reserve yours now at moe-shop.net
While the pedal will surely appeal to purists, those who wish to get their hands on a Juno-style chorus for much less money can consider TC Electronic’s June-60 pedal, which is priced at just $88.50.
