    Anyone have a suggestion for a good chorus pedal ? Just purchased a LM 2 amp which I am playing through the 102 traveller 2x10 and a GK goldline 2x10. I am using a Boss enhance/limit pedal and just want to get a basic, but good quality chorus pedal. Just stopped using a bass pod and trying to go back to basics with just a couple of pedals to tweak my sound- thanks for any help with this.

    How much you looking to spend?

    Boss's CEB Bass Chorus pedal would be a good choice. It has two outputs to play in stereo and you can get a pretty good range of choruses, from suttle to really deep. I just purchased one and its works great.

    I set the filter on it so the chorus effect only applies to the notes that I play in the upper register of the fretboard. It really fills out those notes.
     
  5. +1 on the Boss. It leaves the lows intact without excessive harshness on the high end.

    i have an ehx small clone (non -nano) and i'm pleased with it. obviously if you're looking for a complex chorus this pedal would not be for you since it only controls rate and has a depth switch.
     
  7. You can probably find a used Visual Sound H20 for $100 without too much trouble. I got mine for $90, and I absolutely love it. The chorus is nice and lush and fat, and the delay is very warm and analog-sounding.
     
  8. Digitech Bass Multi Chorus is a great (underated) and cheap chorus pedal.

    IMO it's better than the boss CEB-3, but that doesn't mean I'm right :)
     
  9. I'll also throw in the EHX stereo electric mistress - great on bass, and it has a flanger in parallel = awesome sounds!
     
  10. Another +1 on the Boss unit, I own one and use it with other effects simultaneously and it works like a charm :bassist:

    I'd say for your price range the Boss bass chorus is prolly the way to go...I will note though, that if you wanted to go for a super boutique chorus pedal down the road you should check out the Diamond Halo Chorus. I am using the Boss bass chorus at the momment and it's pretty good and gets the job done but the Diamond will be where I go if I go higher end than that. Good luck with the search!

    I hear some other people saying that the Boss Chorus Ensemble is better than the Bass chorus... any thoughts on this?

    Buy yourself a Fender Starcaster chorus pedal from Target or Best Buy. That pedal rocks hard. You can get the Tool 46 and 2 sound out of it. My locat Target has them on sale for 35 bucks right now.
     
  15. I can also get that same "46 and 2" sound out of my boss bass chorus pedal :D but I have also tried that starcaster chorus and it also gets the job done...the boss units are easier to find though (where I live anyway)

    The nice part about this comparison is that you can try it out at just about any guitar center. That's what I'd recommend.

    Another +1 on the CEB-3. I just purchased one a few days ago and I am loving it. This pedal does have a great "46 and 2" sound to it. I love that song!!!
     
  18. Boss is probably a good and safe bet, but don't overlook the Danelectro Cool Cat series chorus. I just got a Cool Cat Vibe, and it's very nice. And from what I've read, the chorus is supposed to be good too.

    The CEB-3 is very cold-sounding.

    That's the extent of my experience with chorus pedals.
