Get that deep, swirling sound of a vintage rotating speaker cabinet to bring your guitar to life with a studio-quiet, road-worthy pedal. That you can use both live and for direct recording. The Tech 21 Roto Choir recreates both the rotating lower speaker and the treble rotor horn for the complex, multi-dimensional tone that makes a rotary speaker effect sound so sweet.

- Highly sensitive and interactive controls for tweakability and maximum flexibility
- High and Low Impedance 1/4 inputs
- Buffered bypass to avoid signal loss
- Heavy duty, all metal construction
- Biamped/single-speaker mode switch
- Stereo output
- Speaker Sim switch for direct recording
- Operable with 9V alkaline battery (not included) or optional DC power supply
The Roto Choir utilizes a specifically formulated SansAmp technology to deliver the entire signal chain from the original tube power amp to the speaker and high-frequency rotor horn, to the microphone used to capture it.
Drive adds just the right amount of compression, harmonics and grit. Low and High sculpt the tube amp emulation with powerful EQ curves. The Fast/Slow footswitch allows users to ramp up, slow down or even stop the rotating speaker. There's also a dedicated control to custom set the Top Speed of your rotor. Want to vary the intensity of the effect? Simply adjust the Position control to move the Roto Choir's virtual mic closer or further from the horns.
Low Impedance Input
The 1kOhm low-impedance 1/4 output drives long cables without loss of signal integrity, even in bypass
Custom, silent-switching actuator.
Buffered bypass eliminates the shortcomings associated with “true bypass” (pops and clicks, and high-end loss when multiple pedals are connected together), as well as signal loss associated with other types of switching circuits.
