EHX Neo Clone - is it really a chorus?

    I picked up a EHX Neo Clone pedal a few months ago as I wanted a chorus pedal for some Led Zep songs and to just play around with.

    The issue I have is that the more I use it, I realise how much the pedal is an effect in its own right... Somehow more of a flanger or phaser than as chorus.

    I have a MXR phase 90, so currently wondering if I'd be better off getting a boss chorus instead for a more pure chorus sound.

    Just wondering on other people's thoughts on the EHX Neo Clone...

    it's a chorus .... but a none too subtle one I guess. If you want some lighter in the background chorus then you might better off with something else. The small clone was the first and last chorus I ever bought, so to me it's the classic chorus sound.

    Boss CE-5 or CH-1 will give you a more generic chorus sound. It might be what you're after. Loads of vids out there on both.

    Boss CE-5. I bought it about 35 years ago and the only pedal that's never been off my board and I've never thought of replacing it. Having the E.Level knob (wet/dry blend) is a must, IMHO, of course.
