    I cant wait. I have been wanting one since long before they came out. I just love how full even the very subtle settings are. One of the only “chorus” pedals that doesn’t sound like poop with overdrive IMHO. Stoked!



    Who has one on their board?

    A Boss CH-1 is far enough in the direction of the 80's......

    HNPD !

    Congrats. I'm picking one up soon. Be sure to report back.

    I love my VB-2w, I think it's an excellent reissue so I'm sure the DC-2w will be too. I'd also like to pick up a CE-2w, but more interested in the DC-2w.

    Yeah he made the Lovepedal Hermida Reverb 3 sound zacltly like the Dimension C!

    Tone is in the fingers?

    That is a pretty sounding pedal...

    I know you run in stereo, and this one shines in stereo. What I like the most is its subtlety without all of the 'motion' you experience from a standard chorus. Enjoy!

    ^^^^This!!!^^^ ^_^

    In the late 80’s early 90’s I had a TC Flanger/Chorus and it had an almost imperceptible swoosh factor while sounding very lush. I regretted selling it immediately! I think the DC-2w SDD-320 mode sounds even better. This is the last step towards my Damp/Dry/Damp rig before an amp purchase.

    It's one of four pedals on my pedalboard. Great choice, it sounds fantastic.

    Wanted one ever since I saw John Jorgenson use it with the Hellecasters. Awesome sounding pedal, definitely sets a high standard for other chorus pedals.

    The Dimension C is the poor man's Eventide 910/949, but way easier to program and carry around!

    I was a typical 80’s chorus abuser. I absolutely hate to hear old recordings from anything prior to about 89’. I was the Mike Stern of my day only without the talent. I plan a much different role for all my mods this time around. My favorite use of “chorus” these days ironically comes from 1979. The Dimension D Billy used on Manic Mechanic on the descending chords of the verses:

    Of course all of Eric Johnsons clean chorus sounds from about 88’ to 03’

    I have an original that I got for free when I bought something else. The clerk was a friend and he thought that the DC-2 had been sitting around too long. I thank him every time I turn it on! I'll have to try the Waza version sometime.

    Wow that sounds great. No idea how it compares to the original, but it sure sounds like the business on that demo. If I didn't already have a nice analog chorus (Moog Cluster Flux) I'd seriously be checking that out.

    My DC-2w arrived today and I just spent about two hours with it. Had to sort a phase issue with my reverb. Had to reprogram my delays to take the mods out... I like it! Its a sound I will have to get used to including in my clean sounds. I spent most of the time playing EJ's East Wes because it thats type of sound. So fun.

    Famous last words but I'll utter them... My pedal board is complete for a long while!

    Next is saving up for a Deluxe Reverb to build my Wet/Dry/Wet rig! So stoked!!
