So I am about to purchase a new chorus pedal and Im looking for one that has as many options and tweaking ability as possible. Im looking for one that can take the chorus effect to the extreme. Any of you folks have any ideas? Please and thank ya'.

Here are some reference videos on the sound Im wanting to get:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-V7vbUjrGGo (Opening Guitar)

Im a tad confused by this. Is this pedal board friendly or what? All the videos of it make it hard to tell.


OH! Nevermind, I see what it is now. Do you own one of these monsters?

What?! NO!

Regardless, do you have a budget? That's going to be a big help for all of us. And don't say no budget...

i use a TC SCF. good pedal.

the redwitch stuff sounds real good too.

effectrode has a really cool looking chorus.
punk isn't dead, it's always smelled that way.

Plus the Red Witch is from New Zealand so you get the legendaryness of Peter Jackson and The Lord of the Rings.

Axe II was a joke. He wanted the most advanced chorus out there, and the Axe 2 pretty much does that (and a load of other stuff)

On a serious note. +1 for the Empress.

The only real answer to the SG vs Les Paul debate is to get a Flying V and laugh at all the suckers who don't have one.

if you embrace inaccurate intonation it can be quite arousing.

it seems the empress is a good bet, but id also check out the line 6 m5 if you have a chance. it has a ton of different chorus sounds. cant say how it compares to the empress, but it's versatility is pretty hard to beat

I own one and I can tell you the Empress is the dog's bollocks! One of the best chorus on the, period. That said if you up your budget you can also look at an Eventide ModFactor, hard to get anything more tweakable than that.

Earthquaker Devices Sea Machine if you want some more out there stuff. I personally think that the Red Witch Empress is quite cold and unpersonal, the Sea Machine is really it's own beast, has some of the craziest chorus sounds ever, may not be the best for the subtle ones though.
My gear:
  • Fender American Standard Telecaster
  • Ibanez RG450
  • Laney VC15
  • Electro Harmonix HOG
  • Vox Satchurator
  • Blackout Effectors Musket fuzz
  • Electro Harmonix Pulsar
  • Earthquaker Devices Disaster Transport
  • Malekko Chicklett

Red Witch Empress Chorus. Your search is over.

I had one for a while. It's bucket-brigade design made it the noisiest pedal I've ever heard in my life. It was fine at moderate settings, but as soon as you tried for something a bit more, it was totally unusable.

Never had an opportunity to try one, I'm afraid. How is the noise at higher settings?

Its honestly insane, bro. Very little noise going on. Its extremly awesome if you want some weird settings.

Sounds like you found yourself a winner. Personally, I'm going with a rack effects unit in a few weeks. I'll be picking up an Eventide Eclipse to replace my G-Major 2 in my main rig.
