    One knob on a yellow metal box. Low noise. Nice full chorus without exaggeration. I like it. A simple pedal for a simple musician. Recommended.

    How deep is it? I’ve never tried one of these. Is the depth totally fixed, or does it have an internal trim pot for adjustment?

    Never tried that one. I like the Small Clone and the Waza CE-2 I had. I go through phases with wanting chorus. I’ll look into this one next time the urge comes around.

    The depth is fixed. If there is an internal trim pot I do not know. Sounds fine the way it is, in my opinion. Probably not the best pedal for those who prefer more options.

    I’m a set it and forget it kind of guy with chorus. And I’m kinda in the mood to pick one up. But I tend to set the depth pretty deep. I watched a couple videos and it does sound good. I’ll have to try one out.

    I have an original one that I need to fix. I have heard they are a nice mellow effect. Nice find I hope you enjoy it.

    Possibly the best chorus I've ever used, and I've tried alot. Subjective of course, but it's a really nice lush, no bs chorus. Volume jump annoyed me and I sold it. I'm an idiot. Luckily they are cheap. Maybe a mod is in my future?

    Volume jump is very annoying. I have the same issue with my Boss BF-2. Haven't sold it (yet)

    I've always wanted to try one of those. I have the blue Analog Chorus, which is way more tweakable, but I like one-knobbers. A volume jump, however, would piss me off.

    I have two of those.....one has the graphics almost completely worn off. They're a fairly subtle effect, but one I like. Years ago, when I was doubling on keyboards in a band, I used one to approximate a Leslie effect. I completely recommend, as well. ;)

    I like my Microchorus! It’s the only chorus pedal I have encountered with a fast enough rate at maximum to give a nice Hammond organ/Leslie/rotary-simulation!

    Cheap and high quality. But I hate chorus so I got rid of it.
