That's what I am using. Mine has the depth toggle on it. Completely awesome pedal, but as stated it's a bit expensive. The A/B rate and depth settings are very very handy in a live setting when you don't want to have to bend down and change settings mid-song or in between songs/sets.

What are some quality pedals to look into? The final test will, of course, be my ears and information about durability. However, with so many effects manufacturers out there, I don't know where to begin.

Thanks, in advance, for all of your feedback.

P.S. I'm looking to spend under $200...$300 is my limit, unless there is a signifcant improvement in quality to justify a higher cost. Thanks!
At your price range, I would recommend one of the maxon chorus pedals or the the ebs uni-chorus pedal. if you want a good sounding chorus pedal at a much lower price, I would definitely would recommend either the digitech hard-wire stereo chorus pedal or one of the danelectro chorus pedals.

I'm not going to dis BOSS gear, simply state that in 35 years of playing guitar and bass I have never heard a BOSS pedal that didn't alter the signal from your instrument when the effect is turned off. Some are worse than others (where you hear the effect even when it's disengaged), but all of them have adversely affected upper harmonics at the very least.

I love the EBS chorus on my fretless. It's designed for bass, so the effect is nice and watery without garbling your low frequencies. The Carl Martin bass chorus does much the same, but is even more expensive than the EBS (which ain't cheap).

I've had a bazillion pedals over the years, and EBS are among the most well-constructed I've ever encountered. I use their bass compressor as well, with fantastic results.

Wow. 1 1/2 year bump on top of an 8 year bump. This thread's like that one kid who people keep going back to bully when he just wants to be left alone.

I was just trying to be helpful with what's a good chorus pedal to purchase at his price range.

Hahaha this is like one of those bad zombie movies where you've killed them (again) and buried them back in the ground that they came from only to realize that the ground was cursed and they've come back to life again...

In other news... Since the 2008 revival of this thread, I've moved from the Bi-Chorus to an Eventide ModFactor. Not so much because the ModFactor sounds better than the Bi-Chorus (which is, IMO, the best-sounding analog chorus on the market), but because I can save many different patches and easily switch between them.

I can tell you what's NOT a good chorus pedal for bass: an Ibanez CS-9 reissue. It adds a bit of noise, which is no big deal and expected with a chorus, but it also adds this terribly nasaly midrange, and also add a bit of distortion. This could be from running a Sterling 5 thru it with active pups, but still....fwiw, it sounds good with guitar.

I'm really loving my Boss CH-1. I was looking for a tone like this:

and this one helped me get pretty damn close. Of course every now and then I still GAS for something prettier. :P

I found the exact same thing! Very little effect on the fretless but GREAT on the fretted bass!

I think my UE-405's chorus is basically a CS-9, and I LOVE it. It does add some noise- what I'd call *air* as opposed to hiss- it's actually kind of pleasant. I also have a CEB-3 that I'll often dial down so subtle that you can barely hear it, and keep it on for a whole song(rather than to make one part stand out).

Well I,ve gone form the Boss Bass Chorus to Hardwire CR7 to MXR Micro Chorus to a Danalectro Cool Cat CC1.

Aside form the Hardwire which was the best IMO, the Danelectro is $40 and sound equally as good, while being smaller and still having true-bypass and to my ears retains all the low end.

Best $40, I've spend in a while.

I recently got an Analogman bi-chorus and am *very* happy with it. Very sweet sound, no low-end loss...

It wasn't cheap, though... $330. If you got the solo version it would be quite a bit less.
