TC Electronic Stereo Chorus/Flanger
disagree. Not only is it not transparent but the bypass is not even transparent. The DLS chorus/vibe would top the transparent chorus list, IMO.
Tried an Analogman Chorus one time, it seemed much more transparent (whatever that means) than my MXR. Didn't mess up your attack as much.
I can't think of a chorus in pedal format that qualifies as transparent but I'd suggest looking at ones with some sort of mix or blend control for starters.
i've never played one, but i've heard that the fulltone choralflange is supposed to be a very clear, light chorus with a blend/mix knob.
Voodoo Lab is very good, the effect is more of a modulation than a chorus, but it sounds so good...
Even excellent chorus pedals such as the DLS chorus and the Jacques Meistersinger are not really "transparent" (in the sense of not altering your basic tone) unless you have the blend/mix level quite low. But some choruses seem to make your guitar sound very thin, whereas others (to me, these are the better ones) give a more full-bodied guitar sound.
Wouldn't putting chorus through the effects loop and adjusting the loop output level make the pedal a bit more transparent?
Ebs Old School Chorus is the best I have ever tried. Not the red Twister, but the Blue One. True Bypass. The Flanger on it is not the greatest. The Chorus is liquid and merges with your tone. Amazing. Created for Bass, but smokes the TC Electronics. Hard to find, but worth the search.
I can get my ChoralFlange set to where I don't notice what its doing till I turn it off.
Lovepedal Kanji Affirmity....or was it the Jim or Jimmy???
Analogman Clone Chorus
