    One of my best dealer friends says the Fulltone chorolflange is the best pedal ever made. I hear the chorus is great but the flange is too tame. feedback please.

    I love my Choralflange, the chorus is very diverse, with the Narrow/Wide switch

    I can get any chorus tone from

    Steve Lukather
    Andy Summers
    Mike Stern
    Charlie Hunter
    John Scofield
    Pat Metheny
    Warren Haynes


    it helps to really work with it, the flanging I don't use often, but it is exactly what I would need in flanging....quiet, and tasteful, and subtle

    Anywhere is everywhere and nowhere is nothing.
    An extremely versatile pedal, I can see where some might get impatient with it as it requires some experimentation to find all that it can do.
    I love mine. It made me like chorus as an effect again.
    Similar to the Sparkle Drive pedal, you have the ability to adjust the mix between 'wet' and 'dry'.

    The flanger is great, too. The 'narrow/wide' switch is your best friend for exploring different sounds/effects.

    I had never heard a flange I thought was 'musical' until the Choralflange.

    The chorus is very transparent; very cool.

    I have owned 2 ChoralFlanges - sacrificed both on the altar of GAS . Both times I embarked on a chorus / flange odyssey. The first odyssey led me right back to the CF. I am currently on my second odyssey, and unless something pops for me soon, I will end up back home again with my third CF. It just sounds stellar, and has options out the wazoo.

    Oh, and the flange sounds killer (IMO). Very musical - but if you are looking for a wacked out modulation box, look elsewhere...

    Not sure about the reports, but I have found that even a subtle flanger will come to life if you hit it with enough distortion.

    For classic analogue chorus its unbeatable. Great in stereo too.

    I'm used to using an electric mistress sometimes with a wah in front for an old Alex Lifeson & Robin Trower type of tone. E H are a bit noisy but cool pedals for sure. Thanks. I'm thinking Fulltone for chorus and subtle flange and electric mistess for old school jet plane soaring flange.

    Any idea how it would compare to the Retro-Sonic Chorus?

    I'm really thinking of both the electric mistriss and fulltone for the chorus. Then again, the deje vibe is great albeit expensive.
