The North Star Wobbler. The CopperSound Polaris is a chorus & vibrato pedal with two independent depth levels, accessible on the fly. After being inspired by the original Small Clone, we moved forward from there. We started by replacing the depth switch in favor of a knob on Polaris. This allows for better control of the modulation depth. Following in the steps of our Daedalus reverb, we incorporated a second depth knob that is selectable via the secondary footswitch. The original circuit did not have any tone control options. We also decided to implement a Tone knob on Polaris. This knob allows the user to add or cut lower bass presence to the signal. Once we had a tone section sculpted to our liking, we placed a master Volume knob at the end of the circuit. The Volume knob goes from full cut to slightly boosted above unity volume. These two knobs work in conjunction with each other. Lastly, we added a Mode toggle switch to seamlessly alter between chorus and vibrato modes on Polaris. The end result is a luscious, all analog chorus and vibrato pedal with tons of cool options and features.

    I love my polaris! The diversity in tone I can get is amazing! The warm analog sound its beautiful and with just an adjustment of the tone knob I can make it brighter to cut through a thick mix or stack it with fuzz and get a great lead solo tone. Its fantastic that you have a volume knob on the pedal that you can actually boast your signal, something that my old small clone just did not have. My favorite part if this pedal is the second focus option you can push that thing into almost harmonizer world! The sounds you can get are amazing. I love the options you get on the pedal without sacrificing and quality in tone. Super durable and total tonal control that no other chorus has. Love it

    This is my new favorite pedal. So many tone options come with this thing that you will never get bored. The controls are simple and the tone knob makes all the difference when you’re trying to cut through the mix or getting that thick, creamy chorus. I had the pleasure of getting to test out Polaris at the shop and meet the guys, who were awesome and more than knowledgeable. They build everything from scratch and in house. Don’t let this pedal pass you by, worth every cent.

    I bought used and still the best pedal I’ve ever owned. The quality is out of this world. The response, the tones, the ingenuity. Can’t wait to try more pedals from these guys! (I have a telegraph stutter Killswitch on the way.)

    I bought this pedal so I could independently use some chorus and vibrato off a pedal and thereby clear some slots on my Line6 POD HD500X to be able to make some interesting tones. I’ve got to tell you, the Polaris has been more value for me than I thought. The tones of this pedal are much better than the stock chorus and pedal tones I have in my processor so it gave me a lot of variety. Also, I use it along with my Boss CS-3 for a smaller setup and it pretty much covers up my clean tone requirement by adding a nice flavour to it. I’d recommend you to get this for sure!

    I’ve been looking for a great chorus pedal for awhile, one with great versatility and an overall great sound. Now I can say i’ve honestly found that in the Polaris. From a subtle beautiful modulation to that all out old school 80’s sound this pedal really covers it all. This pedal will not be leaving my board anytime soon and I’d really recommend that you get this!
