    Better get out the cuffs! I played that guitar through a Roland JC 120 or JC 77 for about 10 years. I don't have a Jazz Chorus amp anymore, so can I plead semipermanent temporary insanity?:cool::D

    I use these on the tri-chorus setting in a stereo rig. They really widen out the sound. They aren't as " chorusy" in that setting. But I dont want that under water type effect anyway

    I played a couple that friends owned back then, And yeah we did a lot of Pat Travers’s tunes, But I never melded with them because they had some weird two prong cord on them, And all my other effects, both of them had batteries.

    I used to hate chorus, it always sounded out of tune. Once I got a good chorus, I found that they are a great tool. I prefer subtle chorus and subtle flange. They really thicken up the sound.

    When I finally built my pedal board last Spring I broke out the Danelectro Cool Cat and hooked it up. With chill and speed each at 10:00 It provides a nice subtle boosted tone and plays well with my Strymon Flint.

    Both, then Fender DR, 1970, 2x10 JBLs, running 6L6s, plus GR30. Synth output is through the PA. Nice eye BTW!

    I have a JC-22 and a JC-40 and a Source Audio Gemini because I really like chorus, too. It's ok. Fear not. The fashion to group think loathe/heap scorn upon it has largely run its course.

    I've come full circle on this. I prefer just a mod on a delay most of the time but a while back I got a DC-w2 and its not swooshy and is very subtle on its lowest setting. It adds huge space when used with and ambient verb. I need to figure a way to put it on my delay trails and verb when I put the mothership together.

    Thanks for the response, and information. Well, Clapton was/is certainly known for using a Leslie, so perhaps that was what I was hearing...the Leslie engaged, but very, very subtly.

    Chorus is a wonderful effect and belongs on almost every pedal board. Overdrive, delay, and chorus could get you through almost any gig. Chorus is also quite versatile. You can do cheesy deep clean sounds, leslie style rotating effects, and subtle doubling to make everything sound huge.

    I don’t use chorus much but I do like modulation on a delay from time to time. However, if I could find and afford one of those Dytronics tri stereo chorus units from the 80s I would buy it! In fact, I have a scene programmed into my M9 that has a tri chorus, ping pong delays and a big plate reverb plus I crank up my compressor. Was that Lukather/Landau/Huff sound over used? Sure, buts it’s fun revisiting sounds from my youth.

    I love chorus too. But I try to set it so that it goes unnoticed until I turn it off.

    I think many people still underestimate the dramatic role each ingredient plays in the final tone coming out of the speaker. Just one thing different - pickups or the speaker or pedal order, etc. - can be the difference between one guy loving the pedal and the next guy hating it.
