    so i'm doing some recording, and want to lay down some bass parts for my death rock band.

    is there any particular reason to use a bass chorus pedal instead of the chorus i already own? i have two chorus pedals, a flanger, a phaser, and a multieffects with modulation on it.

    Bass chorus is tuned for a lower frequency range. Although, your existing chorus may give you the effect you desire in any event.

    Scooteraz is right, but play around a little.
    I've had some success using regular chorus on bass and bass chorus on guitar

    I have never used "bass" pedals with my bass. I always use guitar pedals.
