    I have the Carl Martin Bass Chorus.

    It makes everything sound very haunting. I love it for playing intervals and higher up on the neck. It doesn't make my tone brighter like a couple of other choruses I tried (which I really like) and it handles the E string fine. As usual with chorus (atleast on bass) it muddies up if you play real fast so it's most suitable for intros/breakdowns and stuff like that. It doesn't seem capable of EXTREME settings but that's OK, I would never use them anyways. It does add a bit (just a bit) of hiss but nothing too bad. The best way I can describe the tone is rent the movie Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me. Listen to the main bass line that goes like this---->

    G
    D
    A------7----------4----------7----------4
    E----7----------4----------7----------4


    Play that with the depth and speed on full and it sounds pretty damn close.
