    Wondering if anyone knows of a trustworthy source that is rehousing stereo chorus's. There was one fella and I turned a buddy onto him but when I got ready he wasnt doing it anymore..Any help is appreciated.

    I'm not sure, but you might want to check Analog Man's site. He's got an excellent reputation, and I know he does plenty of stuff like that. Not 100% sure about the Arion stuff or not. His shop is in western CT, in case that's close for you.

    PM erksin. I saw a picture that he put up on someone else's thread (something like "Pedalboard evolution since joining TGP", and you can see he has a redone Arion chorus. It's up right now.

    Oops, my bad. They must have upgraded the knobs on them since I had my flanger a long time ago. The ones on yours looked like the kind that Fulltone uses, so I thought that it had been modded.

    I replaced the stock knobs so I could see the settings better - those Arion knobs are worthless!

    Tonefreak is not doing rehouses anymore last I heard. I emailed analogman and got a response of " these arent worth rehousing they take too much work and money I think one of our pedals would be a better investment." That kinda sucks cause his website shows a mod.

    I used to want to re-house mine as well but I realized that the buffer sounds fine in it. Mine still has all the knobs and the footswitch is reliable, so i'm happy with it as is.

    I won't touch them any more. I could build one faster in the time it takes to mod and rehouse one.

    I have 3 SCH-Z's, that will cover any breakage.

    Glad I got mine in under the wire!

    I love the Analogman choruses - I've owned a bi-chorus - but the Arion sounds totally different to my ears...
