Does this pedal sound more like a phaser than a chorus...
sounds like a nice clean chorus to me. . .i'm not a chorus lover but i like this pedal. .
I agree. Which is exactly why it's my favorite chorus
Yeah I guess that's why I like it too - it sounds like a chorus and phaser blended together...
i want to get the VS liquid chorus...ive had the V1 and V2 H20s and i remember really liking the chorus side A LOT.
I haven't tried the Liquid Chorus, but do own the version 1 H2O Liquid Chorus & Echo.
It can be very phasey-sounding if both the Speed and Delay Time are set fairly low.
If you want more warm liquidy 'ooze' then crank up that Delay Time knob. But if you combine that with a high Width then it will get very warbly & wobbly at fast Speeds.
My favourite setting though is both Width & Delay Time at flat stick clockwise, with the Speed a mickey whisker above fully anti-clockwise. Very lush, slow swirly, warm chorus effect.
Personally I can't stand the weepy, sloshy choruses that are predominate in the world of choruses. . .they all sound like drunken sailors with snotty noses, ready to slide over into Davy Joneses locker.
That's why I like the H20 chorus. . .sounds like a clean deck just swabbed with bleach on a calm sea. .
Great buffer. Great sounding chorus. I like the vibe-ish warble it does too. Haven't played one in a couple of years.
some demos of the H20 (both versions) chorus sounds at the end
My problem with this pedal is there is so much variety of sounds and I dont feel like I have an understanding of what all the controls do and why it sounds like a phaser in one arrangement and more like a traditional or Boss-like chorus in another.
It seems like the delay time control is the difference on this one - it seems like turned to the left it sounds more phasey - and turned to the right the voice gets more like other chorus pedals.
Any further explanation by those more knowledgeable work be appreciated!
Yeah, it is a nice chorus. Very warm and organic IMO.
I do wish it had a tone control though; sometimes I find it can be a bit too warm for what I'm looking for. I am thinking of adding another chorus to get me a nice bright shimmery chorus when need be.
BTW, it is a phenomenal chorus on bass!
