    Any opinions about the EBS UniChorus or the TC Electronics unit? Which one's quieter? That's a priority for me (besides a great chorus, duh)
    Thanks, yall.

    Thanks-I'll check it out.
  5. i use the boss ch-1 chorus, made for guitar. i think it works pretty well, it's not really thick, just kinda light, but i like it like that.
  6. I like the EH stereo poly chorus, it's thick rich sounds are a must, I also like vintage choruses and the EBS bass chorus has a deeper voice then most guitar choruses that gives a very wide range and a crop of fat sounds.

    I was using a TC for quite a while. They are great. Sound best on bass when run through an FX that allows you to maintain your signal (low end). Very quiet and meg-headroom. The input impedence is very high which means it does not rob you of your tone. But it is not exactly subtle. The TC pedal came out of the 80s and really has that thick swirly kind of sound....but with an octaver put in front of it, it is quite possibly the subharmonic equivilent of Fripp's Banshee's from Hell gtr tone....very menacing!
    EBS is very nice! Not quite as swirly, and maybe even a little richer in the low end.
    Both are excellent (much better in terms of sound quality than ALL other chorus pedals out there...well, Fulltone's crystal chorus is pretty damn good, too!)...must be something about the Scandanavian climes, cos they make some outstanding gear over there! Both units (TC and EBS) are much more expensive than Boss, Ibeenhad, Digitech etc. But you do get what you pay for. I have had my TC for over ten years, and it still works great!

    Thanks a whole lot, man. I am planning on using the FX loop thru my micpre (Focusrite) on an upcoming album project. Your info was exactly what I needed to hear. Hopefully I can find either one at one of the "friendly neighborhood music stops" around here.

    i have the boss bass chorus pedal and do not like it too much. it is my least favorite pedal that i own. It is noisy and not even to noticable unless you want to deal with a loud SWWOOOOOSSSHHHHH while your playing. I would recommend finding something else.
  10. The EBS is nice allot deeper then most choruses on the market the filter matrix and flang is nice too (it seems to preserve your low end), it's a little noisy when maxed but not that bad and a bit simple but that's a good thing to many players, It works great on seven string guitars too. The Electro Harmonix Stereo Poly Chorus is perfect for me, it's tweakable gets mild to very sick Chorus, Flang, Filter Matrix... sounds nice and smooth.
  11. Great Chorus? It's not EBS or TC, but if your looking for a quiet analog chorus, check out:

  13. I use a Boss CE-5.

    Doesn't work well in the lower register, but I usually don't use chorus in the lower register.

    Haven't tried the CE-3.

    I have the Boss CEB-3.Two deciding factors for me were the price and the filter which allows you to choose how low the chorus goes,i.e. you can set the frequency below which the chorus has no effect.I haven't noticed levels of noise that I could term excessive.I go into the front of my amp with it.
