is the guyatone MC3 chorus the same as Analogman clone chorus?

    just went onto the guyatone website and saw that their chorus uses the same analog chip set, so in fact if the guyatone is based on the EH Clone pedal as well, they are pretty similiar, right?

    Having seen the inside of my analogman mini chorus there is no way the guyatone is the same you just can't get that much stuff in a guyatone box, trust me, not saying the guyatone is bad but it's no analogman

    good to here! ive just ordered one, i used to own the guyatone but it gave my bass a dead spot on the D note on the G string would you believe, it also had a big volume boost that was impossible to work with.but it did sound very cool and natural so the chip is a good one;
    by the way, how long did you have to wait for your clone chorus after ordering it?

    Don't know about that, I just had an orange squeeze clone and it was great on bass but you have to adjust it to much internally, I'd check out instead the Tonefactor Squeeze Factor if you can find one second hand or the Pedalworx Squeeze Blender which will be out in about a month these are the same pedal made by the same guy one batch was made for a shop and the new ones are made under his own name. These orange squeeze clones have a blend knob that basically adjusts the envelope of the compressor so it should be able to go from mega squished Tony Levin tones to lightly overdriven compressor smooth motown sound.

    Also the analogman mini pedal enclosures aren't that small, especially when compared to pedalworx
