    I've moved a couple of times and there always seems to be some unopened boxes (ie crap) that accompany each move. It was starting to pile up.

    So I was going thru some unopened boxes in the basement from one of my moves & found this guy...

    I bought it used back in the day but was never a rack guy so it didn't see much use.

    I haven't fired it up yet, but I'm sure it's Boston-style chorus all day long.

    Anyone have any thoughts on this unit or what it's worth? I can't see me using it...even in the home studio.

    I guess the title of my thread is more interesting then my find....over 230 views and no replies.

    With a basic footswitch I think you can incorporate this into a pedalboard.

    they sound awesome but most fell apart due to poor switch quality

    I'd pay shipping to get a chance to try that out.

    Yeah no chance of finding a classic fuzz or old muff...I'm not old enough to have bought and then forgot about one.

    I'm going to try it tonight at rehearsal....funny enough someone just gave me an old DOD FX65 so I'm going fiddle around with that too.

    Maybe I should get my MIJ CE-2 out and go nuts with the chrous.

    My drummer has one of those and the rack-mount Rockman Delay. He picked them up for pennies. I've tried out the chorus, and it didn't sound bad. I immediately went into "We're Ready" from Boston's Third Stage album. :)

    It is a very particular chorus, but very good at what it does and really nice in stereo!

    I had the matching distortion unit, back in Gr. 9. Ordered it through the mail from an ad in a guitar mag, was so excited to get it, ah those were the days.

    Sounded killer through my dad's solid state Yamaha 4x10... :)

    Scholz' designs were good in the day. His attenuator was impressive when it came out. I can't remember who he sold his company to, but that's when the quality really fell wayside. When it was SEX, out was worth it.

    You gotta market that on eBay directly to 80s revival bands. It's a really good one-trick-pony.
