Good inexpensive Bass Chorus?

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by 5teven5trummer, Apr 30, 2018.

  1. Hi folks. As the title says, looking for a decent chorus pedal round about the £100 /1000-nok range. I aquired a Behringer chorus a few months back and i am not impressed with it. Any one tried the Bass Clone? That appears to be best value for money at the moment. So i thought i'd ask around for any upbeat comments regarding this. I love to get all melodic and dreamy in my home jams . Appriciated muchly.
  2. Boss CE-5 is a fab little chorus pedal, I love mine!

    The Bass Clone Would be a solid choice for the $$. I really like it and I'm not real big on chorus.
    Otherwise I've use a Boss CE-5 since the mid 90s due to the HP/LP filters, and haven't found another chorus that was usable for me until the bass clone came along.

    Just got a bass clone myself, first bass-specific chorus I think I've ever had. It's nice - has a really wide range of detune depth and the crossover is helpful to eliminate low-end throb.

    Bass Clone would be my first choice for inexpensive, but if you can pony up just a little more the Idiotbox Dark Waves is the most mojo filled chorus (with very useful feature set and knobs) I've ever played. Instant Cure/New Order/Joy Division.

    Digitech multi bass chorus is good value for the money.

    EHX Bass Clone, MXR Analog Chorus, Boss CE-5. I have liked all of those with bass.

    EHX small clone or the newer bass small clone. Hard to beat those for good and inexpensive.

    +1 on the Bass Clone. +1 on the Digitech Bass Multi Chorus. The Bass Clone sounds better to me, but the Digitech really shines in a live setting. All those extra "voices" or whatever. But if you can find one, a Boss CEB-2 is my favorite. I need to repair mine. I miss it.

    TC Electronic Corona. Very versatile, as its programmable and can sound like many others due to the Tone Print option.
    There is a second-hand one going for £50 over on Basschat in the UK at the moment. They also do a mini version which goes for under £100 new.

  11. OP,
    If you didn't like the Behringer, stay away from the Boss CE-5 as the Behringer is supposed to be a (much cheaper) copy so you will likely be disappointed.

    I like the Hartke Chorus. Really easy to dial in a nice sound. Has a Blend knob.

    For the budget you stated, I concur that a bass clone is best. For a cheaper option, I would also consider the Nux Chorus Core. Stereo is a good thing on chorus, in my opinion. Totally useable sounds with decent options to tweak. $40.00 USD , new.

    For budget i'd recommend the Danelecto Cool Cat chorus (either version...i have V2 and its pretty versatile). The Joyo analogue chorus also looks interesting but i've never tried it (its supposed to be a Copy of the old Boss CE-2)

    They are--but do you know what is really a FAB chorus?

    A Danelectro Fab Chorus pedal.

    I picked up one used for $10--and it does a great job...

    Hard to beat that for inexpensive.

    I don't have one but the reviews online are excellent EHX BASS CLONE. One review stated when you go into a music store thinking of the more expensive chorus, when you try the clone you may walk out with the clone and extra money in your pocket. For the price its a no brainer. Most places under 70 dollars new.
