Mythos The Fates Analog Chorus

Designed in collaboration with Brian for Madbean Pedals, the Mythos The Fates represents the first foray of the Nashville-based company into the modulation realm: It’s a high-quality analog, mono chorus pedal inspired by the classics of the ’80s with bread-and-butter controls and the typical Chorus/Vibrato toggle.

The company’s owner and designer Zach Broyles has built a reputation for simple devices built on a solid engineering foundation and this pedal follows that tradition.

A JFET buffered bypass keeps the noise level down but also helps the signal stand out with an output bump and a pleasing color that works well on clean and driven tones.

The Vibrato mode, achieved normally by simple removing the clean signal from the chorus, has been tuned to sound more subtle to avoid excessive wobbling at high depth settings.

You can hear the results in the video below. We added the Mythos The Fates to our comprehensive article about the best Chorus Pedals.

Mythos The Fates Analog Delay, Builder’s Notes

Behold, The Fates! Inspired by the Japanese Chorus pedals of yesteryear, The Fates is the first modulation pedal by Mythos.

Utilizing the iconic MN3207 chip, this BBD Analog Chorus has all the swirly tones you’d expect from those classic 80’s units. We wanted to put our spin on that iconic sound and create an homage that lived up to the Mythos standard. The Fates features finely tuned Rate and Depth controls so that you have the most musical range of sounds. We added Vibrato mode that turns off the clean mix portion of the Chorus but didn’t stop with just that simple mod. The Vibrato mod has been finely tuned to shift select components so that it does not have that extreme warble from the depth pot. Both the Chorus and Vibrato modes will run the gamut of swirly shimmer to rotary speaker like vibes.

The Fates features a JFET buffered bypass/input stage which helps keeps the noise down but also helps push the signal. This JFET stage gives you a sweet output bump and EQ voicing that plays well with both clean and driven sounds. On the face of the unit is Rate LED that will flash in relation to the Rate setting. This Analog Chorus is not for those who want presets, infinite controls, and other modern feature sets. The Fates is for the player who wants to plug in and enjoy the simplicity of iconic Chorus tones with ease.

The Fates was designed in conjunction with Brian for Madbean Pedals.
