I have serious GAS for this one. Been wanting to upgrade my chorus lately. What is your experience with it, especially in front of a crunchy amp? I don't have an FX loop, so it would have stay in front of my amp. Has anyone A/B'd it with a Mr. Black Double Chorus? I only use chorus for metal style cleans on a single channel amp, think James Hetfield. Thanks.

I'm not using one, but I really want one. I heard Howard demo it at a pub, and it really sounded like a fine circuit and build. I take it you cannot demo both pedals locally. I suspect both pedals will sound rather individual.

I have one and its a great pedal. Real quiet. I A/B'd it against the Mr. Black and found the Callisto to be a much quieter better sounding chorus.

Yeah, they both seem to have their own thing going on.

Cool to know about a quieter noise floor.

I really dig the Callisto. Sounds great as a vibrato.

If I had one I'd be abusing it... On my wish list. Great pedal maker. :)
