Any links to Andy’s board? Asking for a friend...
TPS goes through his board in detail in this clip.
....TPS... uh, lots of 'mutual admiration society' in the first 5 minutes.
The DOD pedal is at about 52:00
I think I may be the only guitar player who uses the Arion SCH-1 for the chorus......
Yeah, my fav 80's too... but I found the MS70cdr works for me too
I'd have one of these again.
The Ice Box was gonna be my 2 cents.
That was my first chorus and found out its my favorite chorus. Unfortunately it died on me. I kept it around for a couple years and would occasionally tear into it trying to find a fix. I eventually tossed it before I knew it was a desirable pedal.
I'm not a big chorus pedal user and after a couple cheaper chorus pedals I finally settled on the Boss Super Chorus because I knew it would be reliable buts no Arion.
I've had a Boss CE2 since the first came out in the early stone age. Love that. Never had the Ibanez but did have the FX65 for a long time. That is a great chorus pedal.
Luckily I'm using a true bypass looper, so I'm not constantly stomping on it. And when it's out of the loop I'm not suffering from the 'tonesuck'. Although my hearing is getting to the point where a little tonesuck is moot, anyways!
My early 80s long dash japanese CE-2 works great for me.
I own a ton of chorus pedals.
But I still have my first
You really can’t go wrong with Ibanez 9 series. The TS9 is a classic, the AD9 punches way above its price point, and the SD9 has its fans as well.
The only well-known player that I know used the CS9 was Soundgarden’s Kim Thayil, and he used it to generate feedback.
I wonder where the new mini Mr Black chorus sits in this tone search.
check out the JHS Emperor --> Also a purple box, LoL
I love the 80s sound and this pedal provides it in spades. Having it sit right next to my old Boss CE-2w at the time, it can cover all of those sounds and then nail the Arion vibe as well; this, thanks to the wave and tone control.
The tone control is what makes the Arion exceptional, IMHO.
Yep - totally agree.
I bought both, around the same time.
I use the CE-2w occasionally, but I use the Emperor often.
So it is that much better than an old vintage Ibanez?
I have an ‘81 Eh Small Clone. It’s super lush and deep. Same Chorus Cobain used.
I use it mostly for Trower songs and always get compliments and questions from other players at gigs.
No idea what the current ones sound like but I highly recommend the originals
Yeah... I find it interesting to see the same people that tend to point out perceived/or real shortcomings.
Id say more than anything, even on a forum this large there's probably 5 people that have tried this specific vintage pedal out. Hence people do their best to help out in other ways.
Personally I think a great way to get chorus sounds is out of an old ADA style Flanger. I have a Paul Gilbert Ibanez signature flanger that's amazing for this.
I love the FX-65, but have you tried an FX-68? It's a 65 with a level control.
