    Anyone have a DLS Chorus~vibe?? Is this a good workable chorus pedal?
    LOoking for opinions on it as far as how it compares to other chorus pedals.

    It's a fantastic chorus, IMO.

    CE-1 tones, TC tones, excellent vibrato settings, faux-Leslie, etc. Stereo outs, blend control, built like a tank. Only downside IMO is the size.

    Agreed! A great chorus. I've tried Retro-Sonic (also great but not versatile enough for me), CE2, Keeley CE2, and this is the one I kept. The blend feature is excellent. Again, as erskin said the only negative is the footprint.

    +1 on all counts. Doesn't fit on my current board.

    I made room for it.
    The best, IMO.

    Very nice. Had one, but prefer the retro-sonic.

    Yep, one of the best ones out there, but it is too big. I opted for the Analogman mini-chorus. Not as versatile but it sounds great.

    The retro sounds better to me too. I had an electrical problem with my DLS, returned it, and went for the Diamond Halo. But it was too subtle for me, and I sold it and went to using my Mojo Vibe on the chorus setting instead. Close enough for me for now, but the Red Witch and Retro will be my next options unless something else catchs my eye.
