    Hey guys!


    I was lookign at gettign a behringer bass chorus, but I have doubts in behringer quality. So now I am looking for a good bass chorus that won't set me back to much. What are your opinions on the danelectro fab chorus? I own a dano fab overdrive and it seems good enough to last if I dont get to crazy, and the sound clips of the chorus are pretty promising.

    The other two I am also looking into would be the Dano CoolCat chorus 18v (if I can find one for a good price i think i'd get this thanks to the soundclips on the Big Sample thread), and the DOD Icebox ( I think I might be able to try one out today and do an A/B with it and a behringer bass chorus for you guys).

    Wich pedal would you suggest?

  3. well i have a the Fab chorus and it's wonderfull i would recommend that if your strapped for cash its excellent quality as well as cheap and its small and compact which makes it easier to carry.

    Boss CEB-3 is $80. $10 more than the Cool Cat.

    I am not strapped for cash but I dont want to spend a ton on one pedal, especailyl not if i can get a really good chorus pedal for cheap. Do you have any clips of the dano fab chorus? Anything that you dislike about it?

    sorry to double post, but are the cool cats that dano is making now 9v or 18v?
     
  7. I used to have the DOD Icebox Chorus and I got the behringer chorus for christmas. I can definently say the behringer sounds better. The Behringer is made out of plastic though, but I'm sure it will last if I am careful with it.

    A used Boss in clean shape could probably be had between 40-50.

    +1 on the Boss and the Cool Cat.

    The biggest difference is the inability of the Cool Cat to warble as much as the Boss.

    The Behringer ($20) is very nice sounding.

    I tried out the behringer and it did sound nice but I'm afraid of whether it will last long or not.
     
  20. With my 3 day experience with the behringer, I think it will last long as long as you are not throwing it against a brick wall (or if your not careful with it).
