Relatively quick question i was just wondering if there is realy a point of a bass chorus pedal. Im not thinking of getting one but i just never really heard a song with bass chorus in it. I also wanted to know if this is a pedal i should consider adding to my pedal board of two pedals. haha.

Both of those are good for the price, the boss is a more subtle than the digitech also take a look at the EHX small stone as well

Is the small stone a bass effect or a guitar. Or will it work with both. Because i can only find on for guitar and also what exactly does it do.

Chous is a modluation effect and any modluation effect will work with guitar and bass. It is a chorus pedal

I own the Digitech pedal. Its a great pedal for the price. Chorus adds a shimmer and thickness to your sound. I use mine quite a bit when playing fusion jazz and prog rock.

Chorus, delay, reverb, phaser, octavers(for the most part) and pitch shifters. I have a guitar chorus, delay, reverb and and phaser and there is no problem with running them with a bass. The thing that you should stray away from is guitar distortions and fuzzes and guitar wah's which usually cause loss of low end

the Digitech Chorus is great I own one it gives you a very rich sound. I use it a lot when it comes to soft parts or to make a very strange sound on my profile there are some examples like Biosphere part 1 and 2

get the EHX Clone Theory, i bought one yesterday, and its fantastic!

Chorus pedals are great for rounding out your sound, and just subtly livening things up.
