Just thought I'd add my two cents here. Right now, this, and the Small Clone Chorus, are the two main chorus pedals in my arsenal. The Arion is a pedal that has some versatility, can be quite prominent or subtle, and sits in the mix of your rig's sounds well. It also works well with cleans and supra distortions. It's also maleable and adaptable, whereas the Small Clone has a great core sound, but I find I have to adapt my sound and other pedals much more to get the Small Clone to sit well in my mix of pedals. I've also been through similar affairs from DOD and Ibanez (the recent'7 series')... If I were really after a chorus, I think I'd go straight for the Ibanez CS9. Some would go for the Small Stone perhaps. But some might even go for straight for the Arion. Ultimately, this pedal is great because it's far more than an 'also ran' chorus pedal. And, if you ever get the chance to run two rigs and utilize the stereo option?...pure nirvana.

I bought this pedal after reading a lot of reviews and the reviews were true, the pedal sounded awsome and had a very thick voice, my problem with it, it stoped working 46 days after it finally was shipped (I waited a whole month because of the backorder when I placed my order for it), the problem it showed me was that it wasn't mixing the wet signal into the output, put it out of its misery, great sound if it would last!!!

Great!!

By Thome

from Cedar Rapids, IA

You can't beat this pedal for the price. It's got great range and a variety of different sounds you can create with it. My only complaint is that the shell is made of plastic, it's still pretty durable, but I wouldnt stomp on it too hard.

simplicity counts

By Mezzoid

from Maryville, TN

This pedal is a great buy. It does exactly what it is supposed to do, and it does it very well. Very transparent, or it can color it with the tone knob. The only problem I have with the sound is the slight boost you get when you turn it on. An effect level knob would made this a perfect sounding chorus. As far as construction, I'm really only worried about the battery cover breaking, not that big of a deal. The second output is a cool feature, you can get true stereo with two amps or use it direct as a tuner input. Overall this is a good solid pedal for a small price.

Arion Stereo Chorus Pedal

By Adzguitardude

from Felixstowe, UK

A tad flimsy, but only because its in a case. The sounds are very useable, ranging from fast intense lesley sounds to slow, gentle wobbles. The tone knob allows a range of tones from deep and bassy to bright and clean.

I bought it based on the reviews here. It is a great chorus pedal. Clean and chorusy, no extra noise that I could hear through the amp. If you like metal boxes, this one is plastic. I don't think it matters unless you stand on your pedals and beat the snot out of them for some reason. if so, remember, plastic can break when you jump up and down on it.

Best Chorus Pedal i've ever used

By Myrick

from Seymour, TN

See all my reviews

first of all, what is the point of writing these comments, you guys? i mean, all i ever get to see from user ratings is the percentages they voted for the product. where do you get to see what i'm writing now? if there's a way to see comments like this and i'm missing it, please inform me. ok, on to the pedal, this thing is amazing you guys , it boosts the highs and lows really well, and one of the best things about it is that it goes well with distortions, especially the Arion Monaural Dist. pedal, so check that thing out too!

A Great Deal

By That Guy-zs_mn

This is a great pedal. I've had it for about a month, and it puts out amazing chorus sounds, whether you want something kinda creepy or just a subtle reinforcement. The only drawback is that it is made out of plastic, but if you just need this until you can get something better...go for it!

wow

By Jared B

from Paradise, CA

i bought this pedal for one reason. it makes a pretty nice echo type noise and sounds like a few different guitars are playing at once. well when i got it i got more than i bargained for. it give EXCELLENT sound and tone control, and since i started playing with it i've gotten into a lot of heavier music styles. it gives great highs for those "off" notes and turn it up enough for some great chorus feed back tones. the only complaint i have is it's plastic, but other than that, it's a great little pedal for a fantastic price.

Yooooooo

By The Man-Ztjf5

Good pedal. But, if you use a daisy chain to power other pedals with it, don't buy it. For some reason the chorus doensn't come out and it's some wierd pulsating sound.

Yeah, it's kind of....AWSOME!!!

By Maffle Man-13n0q

I just plugged this thing like and hour ago after it came in mail. Wow. The sound quality is way better than I expected, and it doesn't drain the tone out of my distortion (unlike the digitech chorus). Plus it gives a nice lush sound when on clean, using reverb, and delay. It really does make it sound like two guitars are playing.However, I found that a couple knob cominations can make it sound kinda cheap, but those can be easily adjusted so sound really wickedly cool.One cool thing I found was that if you turn all the knobs all the way to the right, it will kinda sound like a church organ or something (on clean channel).Of course, the only thing i didn't like was if was a plastic housing. Also, changing the battery looks like it would kinda hard and a pain in the @$$, but I've got a 1-Spot, so I don't need to worry about this pedal.In conclusion; great sound, great price, and I highly recomend it for all skill levels.

GREAT Chorus

By arnottm

Don't be put off by the cheap plastic body. I've had 3 (my son swiped one of them) and I love them. The absolute best $20 you could spend on guitar equipment.

Good pedal for a great cheap price

By DSR

It has tone, take advantage of this feature, even though its $29.99 its actually worth more than its price, the only set back is its cheap plastic, that probably why the price is so low.

I bought this and a Danelectro chorus pedal about the same time. I use this one more than the DE as it seems a bit more clearer and cleaner. I do like this for about everthing I play, which is best for slower and picking type rhythms, finger picking or using a pick...etc etc...I sometimes use the Danelectro, but this seems to have a bit better tone to my ears...well worth the 20 bucks I paid...it is made of plastic and is cheap, so I would be carefull about using it out without a backup of some sort...

This chorus is the fattest sounding thing you will ever hear. Nothing but the TC and the old grey Roland even comes close. If this thing were stolen I would search the earth for another. Quiet, fat, and breathing. I hope they make them forever!!!

Inconsistent Quality

By Slej Hammer

from Washington, DC

See all my reviews

I had an Arion chorus pedal a while ago and sold it - big mistake. It sounded great, and was very quiet and the chorus effect was super. The tone control knob is a great feature, and lets you use this as a bass chorus pedal as well without muddying up the bottom end. I missed the pedal's great tone so I bought another - ugh! Terribly noisy - it's sounds like a flange effect coming through my amp even when I'm not playing. I'll be returning this one and getting a Small Clone instead.

Decent for the price

By Musicfanaddict

from Boston, MA

Chorus effect is quality, but when engaged it introduces a lot of buzz into my setup. My Boss, Digitech, and even Dano effects don't add anything noticeable. Otherwise great for the price. Have had it over a year and never had a problem.

pretty darn good

By Zolafrog

from Flint, MI

I used to own one of these pedals that my dad's friend gave me. The wires eventually went bad after many years, but during the time that I got to use it, it was great. The sounds allow for a really watery chorus or more of a vibrato. And if you just want an echo that can be obtained also. It is the best value for a pedal that I've ever seen. The only problem is with that low price comes cheap hardware, and the knobs might eventually pop off. At least that's what happened to mine. But I'm sure that the newer models have a little better structuring.

Inexpensive and versitile

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I bought this chorus pedal on sale and am very pleased with it. It can create a wide variety of sounds with Rate, Depth and High/Low Tone controls. I own a Fender Jazz bass and with this pedal I can almost perfectly replicate the sound Jaco Pastorius once had. It's definitely less durable than Boss mini pedals, but is holding up after a fair amount of usage. It's also convenient to have the 9V battery input right on the front, and that it is compatible with the Boss PSA-120 DC adapter. My only criticism is that when the input volume reaches a certain point it creates distortion through the pedal and starts to buzz, regardless of the amp's volume. This may just be true with my bass, because it has active pickups with an 18V power supply, but it may be more widespread. Other than that this is a solid choice.
