i'm using a Boss CH-1. even if you have a different chorus pedal, what settings would you use to get kurt's sound? i've gotten close but it seems like something's missing, and it's my first chorus pedal so my lack of knowledge and experience is probably the problem here.

Any songs in particular you're trying to copy the sound of?

I recommend ditch the CH-1 and get a

NO! DO NOT ditch the CH-1!!

 

 

 

 

Just put the speed/rate around just under halfway, say half past 11 o'clock, or near that region. You want it to be slow & "phasey/flanged" and phasey but still have some slight wobble. Turn the depth/width up so the chorusing is nice and wide, but turn it back if the effect gets too wobbly. Say around 2 o'clock.

 

The Small Clone is particularly good at the wobble (which is why people are recommending it for Kurt Cobain's stuff).

 

But the Boss CH-1 is still a great chorus effect! thumbup.gif

I think the reason people are recommending the the Small Clone for Cobain stuff is because he used one.
