xx Recommend a chorus pedal
« Thread started on: Sep 13th, 2004, 12:39am »

I've got a Boss CH-1 Super Chorus but I'm not totally happy with it, it seems to be a tone-sucker.
I'm playing a G&L Legacy into an Astroverb. Is there a general consensus on what is the best chorus available?

cheers

I've got a Boss CH-1 that works O.K. in my Dacatone loop, but I just don't like the sound of it. I prefer my Digitech X-series Multi Chorus. That said, I only use it occasionally on clean sounds. The Digitech can do a wide variety of sounds and they're relatively cheap.

I own a CH1 too, but I haven't really tried many Chorus. I did try a CE3 once, and wasn't impressed. I've heard great tones from that old Arion SCH1, I'd like to get one of those someday.

If I was going with a chorus stomp, I would get the Analogman Sunface with the depthswitch toggle. Not cheap, but well built and top notch sound quality.

But I use the TC G-System these days and the Chorus is more than sufficient. TC has the chorus thing down pretty good. Even the unit I use for a backup, a Zoom GFX-4, does a decent chorus (for the price).

My personal favorite is the TC Electronics Chorus/Flanger. Very quiet and it doesn't kill the tone of your guitar, it seems to enhance it.

Hi David,
I had some issues with some of the Boss chorus pedals.
The best and cleanest Boss is the DC-3 Digital Dimension or Space D if you can find one. The best chorus I have used to date will probably always be a TC Electronic Chorus/Pitch/Flanger pedal, especially with Soldano amps!

If you really don't like Boss CH-1... I think you try to get a Boss CE-2 more vintage tone really sound!! On eBay maybe you can get one about $4x.00!!
If you like more digital sound try Line 6 products, a lot of friend toll me very good!!

Ive found the MXR M-134 Stereo Chorus to be a big winner. I A/Bed with my buddy's Fulltone ChoralFlange and we both liked it better. MXR is doing some seriously good true bypass stuff that competes with boutique for 1/2 the price these days. The EVH Phase 90 and (new from NAMM 06) EVH Flanger are both amazing pedals as well.

Fulltone Choralflange! Sounds great and works great in the loop of all Soldano amps as well as my Shiva. Although I will say that all of this is subjective. I saw Tool the other day and got a chance to speak with the guitar tech and he said Adam was using a Boss Flanger which I hate and his tone is great so it's all about the total setup and what makes you fell good.

Currently I'm using a Boss CE-5 and sometimes it sounds ok and unfortuntely most of the time it sounds like crap.

I keep thinking one day I'm gonna get the TC Electronics unit. But considering how little I use chorus, I really can't justify the price.

I've had plenty of Chorus pedals over the years. The Fulltone Choralflange was real nice, but my favorite is the TC electronics Chorus/Flanger. It's very transparent and sounds great. The Pitch Modulation does a great Leslie simulation too (just listen to David Holt using one on Storyville's "Live at Antone's"). Also used by David Gilmour and Eric Johnson.

Fulltone Choral Flange, but eq it right otherwise to me it is a little over the top.
