It took many gig hours, but Australian musician Emily Retsas has built an enviable career since moving from Adelaide to Los Angeles six years ago, playing bass for the likes of Kim Gordon, Fiona Apple and Phoebe Bridgers.

In this great new clip, Emily Retsas, current bassist for Phoebe Bridgers, sits down with EQD to check out their new Aurelius Tri-Voice Chorus! In the demo Emily gives us nice mellow vibes, showcasing the versatility of chorus sounds you can get between the 3 modes. We love the warbly, gritty tone she gets using an ebow in the Rotary mode paired with the Special Cranker, jamming along to some dusty ambient tracks from a vintage Marantz cassette player.

More About the Earthquaker Devices Aurelius Tri-Voice Chorus
This is not your run of the mill chorus pedal. This compact, beautifully cased wonder is a three-voice chorus with six programmable presets and expression control. Choose from Vibrato Mode, Chorus Mode, and Rotary Mode and manipulate their Width, Rate, and Balance to achieve your ideal sound. Shift seamlessly from one mode to another to cop a blend that is all your own. One simple tap of the Preset (“Save/Recall”) switch and you can summon up to six settings of your choosing at will.

Inspired by the 1970s CE-1 Chorus Ensemble pedal, this digital unit has been tirelessly tweaked and fine-tuned to give you an all-encompassing chorus and vibrato experience like nothing else. And by popular demand, we’ve equipped this with an expression control so you can use any TRS expression pedal to manipulate the Width, Rate or Balance. Put it in Vibrato Mode and you’ll have a really subtle chorus with a seasick vibrato and alternate quickly between the two seamlessly. And that’s only one mode. The possibilities are endless.
