    I played a gig the other day where the bassist who's rig I used had multiple channels, one of which had a light chorus. I really liked the warmth and overall size it gave my sound, but I didn't have the time to play around with the channel to find what it was really capable of. I'm ordering a zoom B3 soon, and I'm curious of how I can use the chorus, and the different ways it can affect my sound. I realize I'll learn by just playing with it, but I'd like some suggestions as to how you guys use chorus in your sound. Thanks in advance for your help! Adam

    If you have a band with a single guitar play, chorus works great for filling in sonic space when the guitar player is soloing. I also use it sometimes when I solo just to give a different tone.

    I use it after octaver>fuzz>filter and I use detune as a last effect in all of the synth patches I've come up with on the B3. It makes synthy sounds more, um, synthy. I use it a lot just after fuzz too. It just makes every thing sound bigger. It makes my MXR blue box sound really tight like a man's anus.

    I thought if something sounded like ass it was a negative. Shows what I know.

    A little sounds good with distortion. It fattens up the sound.

    I also use chorus at times during solos and quite often with overdrive.

    I pretty much put the chorus after the verse ;)
