    I have never used effects but I just bought a Carl Martin compressor and I would like to add a chorus or chorus flange. I am considering the Fulltone, EBS, Carl Martin. Any suggestions.

    I really liked the Maxon CS-9 when I tried it at a store, much more so than the EBS. Very warm, slighty compresses the tone on some settings, and keeps the low end intact. Nice!

    On the cheapers side of things, I am really impressed with the older 18v Danelectro Coolcat. Almost sounds analog. Make sure you get the 18v, not the newer 9v. Those suck.
     
  3. The Dano Cool Cat sounds analog, because it IS analog. Another inexpensive analog chorus is the old Boss ce-2b (Bass Chorus, the brown one). They usually show up on ebay for under $40.

    When I bought my Fulltone Bass Drive last week, I demo'd a Fulltone ChoralFlange. This pedal blew away everything else I've tried, to date! I liked it better than the TC Electronic and EBS chorus pedals, and that says a lot!:D

    Another vote for the 18V Danelectro Cool Cat.

    The Boss Bass Chorus works well for me. You have the option of applying the effect to your entire signal, or just applying the effect to the mids and highs, leaving the lows intact and unchorused for a solid bottom.
     
  7. Anyone using a Voodoo Lab Analog Chorus?
