Help with Chorus on Boss ME-50B?

    Just got a Boss ME-50B. Wow! I love it.

    But I can't get any effect using the Chorus. Is this because it is a stereo chorus and will not work at all if I have a cord coming out of only the left (mono) output? That makes sense, but I figured it would still produce the effect, just not in stereo.

    If I'm right (and I never am, ask my wife), is there such a thing as a stereo to mono 1/4" jack -- two jacks that merge into one?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You should be getting chorus with just the left mono output.
    Make sure your sub freq filter is not turned all the way to the right. This will cut out the chorus completely. This is the seccond knob from the left.
    My fav setting from left to right
    3 o'clock, 11 o'clock, 12 o'clock, and 1 o'clock.

    You are correct, sir.




    You can make your own.

    Or the cheapest and easiest way might be
    the dual Mono IN to Mono OUT adapter.
