I just bought one of these over a week ago after I acquired a vintage, 1988 Fender Studio 85 amp a few weeks ago. I was using a Digitech RP-50 for effects, but I had to trade that as part of the deal in order to get this amp so, I needed something for effects. I used to have one of these over 6 years ago when I was using a 1997 Crate GX-65 and it worked wonders with that amp , so when this came in, I was not let down at all. It now makes my amp sound more fuller and can hang with it's more expensive counterparts IMO.

This isn't really much of a chorus pedal. There are 2 things you can do with this: set all the knobs at max so you can make really strange alien noises (which is the only good thing about this pedal), or you can keep them moderately low so it can add a slight bit of depth, although this makes your changes your tone and makes it really annoying. You should really test this out before you buy it if you won't take my word for it. The only good thing that came out of this is that i found out that the Fab pedals are a bit more durable than they look, which might be useful in case I give a different one a try. Note : definetly get this pedal if you are going to start a band that dresses up as aliens.

    Cost Effective Chorus

    Comments about Danelectro FAB Chorus Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I had just purchased the Danelectro Echo pedal and modded it with a Time/Speed control converting into a delay. Was so impressed with the tones, I purchased their chorus pedal and I am just as satisfied. Now these are great for home use, but personally I would not consider these road worthy due to their plastic housings and very cheap foot switches. Sonically, they both complete with many other mid range pedals for those times when you need these types of effects. So if you are on a budget, or just need to a pedal for the occasional tune, then this Dano Chorus may be a viable option. Then again, if you require a bullet proof case, knobs galore, and a footswitch that will hold up for the long haul, then look elsewhere.

      Comments about Danelectro FAB Chorus Guitar Effects Pedal:

      I know I'm in the minority after reading the other reviews, but life is richer with variety. It's too noisy to have a practical use outside of playing to make yourself (somewhat) happy in your bedroom - I couldn't use this in front of an audience. I'm going to pull out the innards and use the box & switches to house my homemade effect.

      • Weak effect overall

      Best Uses

        Comments about Danelectro FAB Chorus Guitar Effects Pedal:

        This is an odd shape pedal, which makes it difficult to fit in a pedal board overall. The chorus effect is pretty weak, tho it IS usable. My Phonic Mixer chorus is way stronger than this.

        With that said, it is a great rhythm guitar effect, and fills out the sound nicely for that use.

        The case is fine, the switch is fine, the controls are smooth, and the jacks are tight. For the price, as a Rhythm Guitar or Lap Steel effect it is the bomb.

          I needed a Chorus to leave in my rig setup at the band's practice space and took a chance on this very inexpensive pedal. I tested it at home and I cannot distinguish it from my more expensive pedal.

              If you're thinking about a chorus pedal, get this. If you're not sure if you want one, get this and find out. If you need a good pedal and don't have much to spend, get this one. I was shocked at the sound quality from such a low priced pedal. I've been playing through it for over a year now with no complaints, and if it broke tomorrow I'd still feel like I'd gotten more than my money's worth out of it. Quiet, simple to use, cheap, and it sounds good. Hard to find anything not great about this pedal.

                I bought this for my son. There were a few songs he just couldn't get the right sound on. It took him awhile to be able to tune it in just right but once you do. You will like it.

                    great sound for bass especially for fretless. to make it better for bass you'll have to raise the input capacitor if you're into modding effects. the input cap is .047uF so just solder a small 1uF cap in the same spot. this will allow more bass to go through. so the total value will be 1.047uF because its soldered in parallel
