    Hi everyone, I'm in the process of putting together my new 2014 nano (1590A) size petal board.

    So far I have ~
    Pedaltrain Nano board
    One Spot supply with multi-plug 5
    TC Electronic Polytune mini tuner
    Xotic SP compressor
    TC Electronics Ditto looper

    Now I need/want a good nano sized Chorus for bass - any recommendations?

    EDIT: Please post a link too.

    Thanks

    Moore just announced a new bass chorus, the Ensemble Queen, but I'm not sure when it will be available.

    Thank you, yeah I've been keeping an eye on the Moore website http://www.mooeraudio.com/en/ProductInfo.asp?id=12 and the Ensemble Queen isn't even listed yet.

    I had a Mooer Pitchbox, which has a 'detune' option as well as the pitchshift and harmony settings. The nice thing is you can set it to chorus either above or below the original pitch.

    Mooer stepping out into original territory? I was under the impression they were all clones of popular old Boss etc. I'm pretty stoked with their Reacho delay, my first delay pedal.

    The Ensemble Queen is definitely in stores - my wife bought one at a place in New Hampshire whose name escapes me a couple of weeks ago. She hasn't really had a chance to put it through its paces due to travel, but it sounded pretty good in the store (well, as good as anything could sound with the POS Squire P and similarly awful amp they stuck her with).

    Are you sure its the "QUEEN" and not the "KING"? I can't find the Moore Ensemble "Queen" anywhere?

    Okay, it's worth a try - I'll shoot him message. Thanks


    EDIT:
    I was told over on the main Moore thread there's bass loss with the "King" so Moore is solving that problem for us bass players with their new "Queen"?

    Does anyone have experience with any of these nano chorus petals (any bass loss etc)?

    No, you're right, it was the King. I didn't realize they were coming out with another version. Could have been the Ensemble Prince/Emperor/Khaleesi/etc. and it would have slipped by me.

    Oh okay, lol. When she gets a chance to use the KING more, please ask her if she notices any bass loss and get back to me with what she says (assuming she plays bass)? Thank you very much.

    I have the Ensemble King. There is a bit of bass loss, but not a huge amount, and I can live with it. Nice warm analog sound.

    I also tried the Mooer Mod Factory (digital) - a huge range of effects in a micro pedal, including chorus. But some effects are weak on bass - phaser, wahs. The chorus and tremelo were ok, but I still preferred the Ensemble King.

    I'll probably try the Ensemble Queen (if it's analog) when it's available to see if that's better still. But if Mooer hadn't made it, I guess I'd be happy enough with the ensemble king.

    I can't offer an opinion on it because I've never tried it, but you may want to look out for the MythFX Triton.

    I bought an Ensemble King a couple of weeks ago and I'm really happy with it. I've not noticed any bass loss but I tend to have the ratio low with the depth at about 12 o'clock which boosts the low end. It's a good sounding analogue chorus with true bypass and it's cheap too!! Win win!!

    Hmm. That's an interesting box, I'm not sure I want/need all that - but, thank you very much for the link.

    Sorry I missed this thread. I have the Malekko Omicron chorus. The sound reminds me of an old Keeley Hi-Fi Mod Boss CE-2 Chorus I used to have, but with a wider frequency response...and that's at 9V operation! Keep in mind, you can run the newer Omicron Choruses at 18V, for even more headroom.
