Can someone point me in the direction of a good chorus pedal for 80's (Think HAIR!) metal. Something that would work great with a dirty amp and also with clean tones.

Thanks,
Scott

i bet most of those guys used a boss ce-2 (think roland jazz chorus)...

I had a small clone... i think it is too warm for hair metal....

Nah, the CE-2 is too vintagey, try some digital ones like Boss, or old Arions, they are from the 80's and should give that hair metal chorus.

agree with the Boss recommendation. You don't need anything more than a slow/medium speed and a pretty shallow chorus FX to get that 80s sound.

For a long while, I used a $70 CH-1. Very basic, but definitely copped the 80s hair metal sound convincingly. Then I found this place and dropped about $230 on a retrosonic chorus ensemble! :NUTS

Save the money and just buy a Boss! It's really all you'll need.

Ibanez CS9. This pedal was born in the '80s, so it should cover that Cinderella/Brittney Fox stuff. Somebody put some soundclips up a few days ago, it'll do all the hair band stuff with hi-gain.

80's? Metal?

BOSS!!!

There's a nice cheese-ball quality to that BOSS sound ... and I do mean that in the best way possible!

Hardly "too vintagely" - Boss didn't switch to digital until 2001.

The CE-2 will get you there.

yes WE did indeed!!!!

Still got one in fact.

I dug it out last month for a hair-rock Xmas party for microsoft.....didn't realise how much I'd missed it (and hair music to for that matter....)

TC Electronic Chorus+PM and Flanger pedal works well. Mine sounds great and it is true bypass.
