Bass-specific chorus, flanging, and resonant filter effects.
The Ashdown Bass Chorus Plus FX Pedal delivers powerful chorus and filter sounds tailored for the low-frequency response of the electric bass guitar. Besides the standard Depth and Speed controls on most chorus pedals, the Bass Chorus Plus also provides flanging and a unique range of delay effects. Housed in a durable metal case, it has controls for input, output, depth, speed, and a chorus/flange/delay filter knob as well as the famous Ashdown input VU meter. True bypass circuitry keeps your signal clean when you're not using the effect. 9V battery or DC adapter power.

I was looking for either a chorus or a flanger for bass and decided to try this. I like how it blends chorus and flange together. True bypass switching is good, so I put it first in my signal chain of pedals. The voltage meter stays illuminated as long as the pedal has power. The meter is necessary so you can adjust your input level without clipping. The effect does cut off some of the lower frequencies, but it still sounds ok. Overall it's a pretty decent pedal and I'll probably use it frequently.
I just got this pedal for Christmas and have eaten it for the last several hours. I've been toying with several chorus pedals, particularly the Boss CEB-1 and the Digitech model, but this guy blows them out of the water. For future reference, all playing was done with a 1997 Fender Deluxe Active Jazz Bass through an Ampeg SVT-350T.The straight chorus setting is very versatile, going from warm and creamy to bright and crisp. The flange seems to distort a little on the low end of things, but also good with some adjustments.
The Ashdown Chorus sounded very good. True Bypass. The problem I had with it was when I switched over to the flanger there was this whistling / squeeling sound coming from my amp. I tried everything to stop the noise but couldn't. I have two other Ashdown units (Drive & Comp) and these things are built well and look great. I haven't had any problems with the other two. Another downside with them is the flimsy battery door. I wouldn't use batteries anyway though. Unfortunatley it had to go back. If you're going to buy any of the Ashdown effects, keep in mind that when Ashdown first put them out, they weren't compatible with active high output basses. The newer versions are. The older ones have a sticker on the box that states they are to be used with passive basses only. There are still some out there- I ordered the Envelope Filter recently and it was an older version. Anyway, since the prices dropped recently, they are worth taking a look at.
I was surprised as to how bad this pedal sounds. I own a Ashdown Drive Plus pedal and LOVE it. But this one has a terrible hiss at most settings and has a high pitch squeal when used in Flange mode. I would avoid it.
Same as a previous review, I got a whistling/squealing type of sound when rolled over to the flanger. The chorus sounds pretty good. Cheap battery door held on by a tiny screw that won't last over time. Although using an adapter would be best anyway. I did send it back. The Ashdown effects are very well built. I have 2 others (Drive & Comp)and have no problems with them. Consider that the early versions do not work well with active high output basses. You'll know because it states that on the box, and the meter doesn't light up on the older versions.
I bought this pedal and as soon as I plugged it in there was a load hum that came through my amp even with the input and output turned all the way down. The effects sound really good and there is a lot of versatility but if I turn it over to flanger it gets a very high pitched whistle. I sent it back and got another Ashdown pedal and it was messed up too!! I will never buy another Ashdown product and I advise you not to either.
This is one of the noisiest pedal gadgets I seen in 40 years, there have been others. i was trying to modulate my fretless so i could get the same sound as when I record. I sent this back the same day I recieved it for the noise alone.
