    Nice score Olle!

    I have a soft spot for chorus too and I may try the Clone Chorus from Analogman sometime, but for now I don't imagine it would "fit" with what I'm doing.

      yup, the CE-2 is good, not as good as the CE-1 chorus ensemble (which also has a succulent vibe mode), but the CE-2 is less noisy, one of those choruses that can do that dreadful 80's chorus sound without becoming cheesy, and the warbly vintage chorus sound can also be had with it, the only issue I have with the CE-2 is that it does not work with distortion all that well, preferred the Small Clone for that, but for the time being, my MIJ CE-2 is on the board, gotta love that baby blue though

            it all comes down to personal taste I guess, personally, I find it sounds like plastic when used with distortion, unlike the Small Clone, it makes the distortion hover back and forth in a very nice fashion, anyway, enjoy your CE-2, I'm enjoying mine as well, using it sparingly

                yes, I've been thinking about putting my Moogerfooger 12 stage phaser on my board as well, and loose the DL-4, too bad I need the DL-4 for gigs, otherwise I would have a nice Moogerfooger threesome ... the 12 stage does not work too well with distortion either

                  I prefer the CE3. Can be hooked up to do vibe or stereo chorus.

                  I just started listening to some Budgie when i saw this topic...chorus is awesome for classic metal clean intros. And for solos...reverb and chorus, mmmmmmmm.

                    i like to use it a bit on the cleans, not all the time but a good bit of time. it does add a nice spaciousness that alot of people like to hear, even if they dont realize its an effect (you know - non players, they think the clean guitar just sounds good & thick)

                    Spam: line 6 floorboard it works with AX2, Flextone, FlextoneII, POD, POD pro, Bass POD, Bass POD pro, and Spider

                      For a while I put a Maxon CS550 at the end of my chain, set for a spacious stereo doubling-type thing, after reverb and everything. Very nice, if done subtly.

                        chorus is only rediculous if you use it in rediculous ways.


                        I like the added shimmer my guyatone/ce-2/rocktron can give with high depth and low speed, so that the sweep of the LFO is not too obvious. I love the "rolling along" feeling that it can add.

                        Just do not utilize it as one of those nasty 80's rockers did. Maybe more in the Frusciate style (esp. BSSM album.) OH yeah, NEVER on acoustics though.. man, it seems to make everything "church rock."

                            This post just needs to be quoted because it mentions Budgie.

                              Someone should really have a shoot-out of chorus pedals with clips, I think that would really help. Also, a pre-Keeley and post-Keely CE-2 clip comparison would be great
