Nobody needs a chorus pedal, right? I mean if you want to sound like Warrent, or Prince in the 80s, then maybe. But otherwise a more useless effect there never was.

However I now find myself needing one for Si Schroeder stuff. I was using an old MXR Micro Chorus which actually sounded pretty good and not harsh at all. But it has died, and the parts to revive it are hard to come by. I have a lend of a Boss CE5 to tide me over, but it's the crappest sounding pedal ever. Sucks all body and life out of the tone and injects a watery horribleness. Ugh.

Why am I posting about this here? Well, like I said nobody needs a chorus pedal. Yet many find themselves owning them. So I'm asking you, my fellow thumped guitar pricks, if you might have at the back of a dusty drawer and chorus pedal that you might be willing to sell to me for little money. Ideally it would be analog, and not have a million knobs, have a footprint befitting a pedal of such importance (small), and not be made by Boss. Adverts is, unsurprisingly, full of Boss Choruses.

The 80's are over people, 'fess up.

at the risk of incuring the wrath of thumped, might I suggest getting youre hands on one of these:

same chips as the c-2 apparently. have one myself - lovely warm chorus.

Warm is what I'm after, and something that doesn't thin out the sound. Thanks Johnny, noted.

Come on people, don't be embarrased. We're all friends here.

I love a bit of chorus. So, in short, you can't have mine.

i have the marshall one (that might actually be discontinued). would consider a swap, maybe. i use it all the time, for barr chord progressions that i play entirely with my shoulders.

There's this pedal called a Zoom that you might be interested in investing it. Full of really top shelf sounds. The last pedal you'll buy.

I've somehow acquired a scary number of chorus pedals over the years I think I have at least four of the fuckers,but I only use the CE-2 really

you can have this one if you like mate?

it's analog and actually sounds half decent!
