Chorus

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by fenderbassabuse, Apr 11, 2004.


  1. My bass teacher tells me to buy a chorus pedal and use it when I play slap. To me, that would sound very 80's, and it could get very muddy. Does anyone here use chorus on slap lines?
     
  2. I do, its all in how you have the chorus levels set; but then I like chorus alot,shoot who am i kidding, i am an effects nut.....

    I very rarely use effects on slap, chorus is more for fretless (for me).
     
  4. Cool, thanks. What is a high quality chorus pedal for around £100?

    EBS UniChorus has kept me happy for a couple of years. Besides the high-quality chorus, it has an "okay" flanger. I liked it better than the Boss chorus I sent back to the store. Plus, it has an analog signal processor.

    It may be cheaper for you than it was for me, (me being in the US), since EBS is a Swedish company.

    Chorus can be used for alot more then thin, "swimy" kinda things. My band just finished up our new album, and on a majority of the songs our producer put a lil' bit of chorus on my Sansamp effected output, and it REALLY brought out the tone. Now I can get nasty, growly tone without overly annoying treble clank. Really an eye-opener. You could'nt tell it was there is ya were'nt listening for it.
