    Think of playing your Stratotone while riding on the oldest tractor on the property.

    Hate chorus mostly. I’ll allow it in some 80s post punk or funk stuff. It’s okay in other things when it’s fast and leslie sounding. I can ignore it in shoegaze mostly. totally fine on synthesizers. But otherwise no go.

    I hate when you see some modern jazzer playing everything clean with an always on chorus. It’s trashy or tacky like a chinstrap beard or plastic furniture covering.

    To me, chorus is the sound of the late 70’s and early 80’s. Which is fine if that’s what you’re going for. But a squeaky clean guitar tone with chorus and tons of reverb will always remind me of drum machines, shoulder pads, and Yamaha DX-7s

    I had one on my board for a while. I’d kick it on whenever I wanted to get my Peter Frampton/Pat Travers on, but it took a crap on me and I never fixed or replaced it. I don’t miss it.

    A buddy gave me a Dod FX60 chorus in the late 80s. I used it all these years in cover bands when appropriate eg; on the "chorus."

    It finally went out on me. I was not going to replace it, but after one gig I bought an MXR chorus to fill the gap. I am unapologetic.

    If you think chorus is bad, what to you think about

    My buddy Jim brought by a, I think it was pink which would be pretty fitting, and I think it was an Ibanez pedal, that had distortion and chorus, in one...
    I used commas in the above paragraph as/in place of chorus. Most days I use less...Most days I useless... oh Lord I got to get out of this house! Ha!

    I like chorus on occasion. For about $100 brand new this was my answer to my perceived need for a chorus pedal.

    I think it hits a sweet spot between cost and flexibility.

    It enables me to make wired sonic noises via knob twisting and
    a PC hook up (Toneprint ). It's what I do as opposed to actually
    learning anything resembling real music. :confused:

    I had an aha moment on one of my recordings when I heard a Santana tone I had wondered about. I got it using a rolled off L.P. Into one of my Leslie Sims going reeaal slow. I’ve tried to duplicate it and I don’t seem to be able to haha. Maybe it was my Cordovox, But I don’t remember mic’ing and recording that.Maybe Evan Williams was on the personnel log.

    the three little lines in the lower left corner of your post include an edit option.
    And yeah A/DA flangers can chorus

    edit: dammit (TwoBear) I quoted your Simpsons comment but you had put it inside the body of the former post you quoted so it was not quotable

    Yes. People may think chorus means Kurt Cobain. But you listen to a lot more chorus than you know. Those wet, precious unaccompanied arpeggios save a lot of pop tunes.
