    Hello all,

    I finished building the BYOC Chorus Clone kit last night. It sounds great and it's very flexible! I'm not quite done - I haven't painted the enclosure yet. Also - there is a very low 'thumping' sort of tick when the effect is on. I assume I did something wrong. I haven't had time to troubleshoot yet (I sent Keith an email and I'm hoping he'll have some insight as to what might be causing it).

    Here's a clip of the pedal alone - no amp, just straight in to the Instrument level input on my audio interface. I'm using a Strat set to neck/middle position.

    BYOC Chorus Clone

    * The first sample is dry (pedal off).
    * The second, third, fourth, and fifth samples are with the pedal on, depth and rate set to aproximately 12 o'clock position and each demonstrating the four different width settings (starting with the widest.
    * The fifth sample is with the vibrato switch engaged.

    You'll hear the tick in the background. I hope to have that fixed in a couple of days if time permits.

    Wadaya think?

    I had trouble with your link. I believe it should be:

    BYOC Chorus

    I do like it! Let us know how the tick issue is resolved. I am seriously considering building this myself.

    nice ..thanks for the contribution . I think you`re onto something with the harsh reality of a direct line . We all know how that sounds as opposed to a test with an amp that we may not be familiar with . I liked the top end clarity which sounded much like the dry signal BUT with the chorus tails having a warm sweet quality . Maybe the direct test is deceptive but it seems to stand out in top end with a warm effected signal at the same time ....unlike a TC i.e which is all top end (a.k.a. harsh IMO ) . I`ve been through the choralflange which got me fatigued ..the EBS red twister ...too much volume boost and mud (anyone want to buy it ?) and am now wrestling with the Arion sch-1 ...obviously a muddy pedal . I really like the faster deeper settings BUT it`s days are numbered . I was about to go Analogman ...which I tried in the store and was very happy .....could you comment on the A/B to the Analogman chorus ....thanks
