    I'm on a High end effects search for a great chorus, Flange, and Distortion. I think I'm already convinced about getting a Fulltone Bass Drive, but I'm also on the search for a great realistic and clean chorus pedal. I came across the only 300 dollar stomp pedal in AMS, the Tc Electronic SCF. What do you all think about it? The reason why I'm looking into buying a pedal that for the price I could buy a back-up bass for, is because I don't want to simulate a sound, I want to create it. It seems like all these Boss, and Ibanez and whatever pedals just seem to recreate an already established sound, and don't quite hit the mark on what they are trying to acheve. :( So What do you think.

    Thanks! :)

    This pedal has been (one of) the best (and most expensive) chorus pedals around. And probably still is. It's probably the most hifi-sounding chorus.

    Another pedal worth checking out is the EBS UniChorus.

    I'll concur...

    I've played that TC chorus in stores many times and loved every minute! They're really well built and sound phenomenal!

    Of course, EBS' reputation for fine pedals is 2nd to none. I don't know which one's actually better:confused:
  4. T.C. Chorus is great, and so is the EBS UniChorus.
    Both are tops in the mass produced, run-of-the-mill Choruses.

    If you want the best, most flexible Chorus for Bass
    check out a Fulltone Choralflange.
    It is so superior to TC or EBS that the extra $ is definitely worth it. Two pedals in one.

    That is IF your looking for the best Analog Chorus and Flanger for bass... get one of these handmade beauties or "get out of town."

    BTW: Looking for a great overdrive? Check out the Fulltone Bass Drive before you buy anything else.

    Hey Man you practically convinced me to buy the Fulltone overdrive. I hope I like it cause I allready put a down payment on it . . . Is it really that much better than the TC electronic??:confused:
  6. I'm confused. The T.C. Electronic Stereo Chorus/Flanger is a comparsion with the Fulltone Choralflange.

    The Fulltone Bass Drive is the most excellent Bass Overdrive.

    I guess what I'm asking is, is the Fulltone ChoralFlange worth the extra 50 bucks more than the TC electronic. Have you compared both???

    What's so great about the Fulltone pedal? Is it a vintage (80's) type Chorus or is it more modern? I'm looking for a modern type effect.

    I was just mentioning that you and your links to reviews on the Bass Drive convinced me to purchace it. I just hope I like it. . . . .
  8. Yes, I have compared both. IMHO the ChoralFlange wins hands down. $50 more for a handmade pedal with the option of true bypass is worth it. The Fulltone will also retain it's value over time.
