difference between

the small clone(chorus) and the pulsar (tremolo)... im going to get to guitar center because my wah pedal malfuctioned, and im goign to trade it for store credit and buy one of these

background: i play ska, reggae, rock, surf,alternative, classic rock, jazz, and blues... i use my cleans mostly, and occasionaly metal, which would be the better deal for all of this?

to be honest, id say just try em both out, but a friend of mine has this bogus tremolo pedal he uses for a lot of reggae. if he sets it a certain way he can get his guitar to almost sound like a steel drum

You pretty much just said it right there...

But yeah, Id think that the Small Clone would be more suited for your styles

I'd go for the chorus because tremolo can be effected by just lowering and highering your volume on the guitar.

Yes, but that's not even close to a tremolo effect. Maybe if you have killswitch, but that's still not the same.

i think he meant that the effect its self was affected by changing your volume

so is the general consensus the small clone?

the steel drum thing interests me... could i get a vibratone-like tone from either (that would be an added bonus)

there is this thing called the clone theory which has a chorus (like the small clone) and a vibrato in it...
you should try that out

Whodicted

well i already have a chorus on my amp, i wanted to know if the gain of control on the small clone was worth it... and the money is from store credit, plus asking my mom for a few dollars... im just looking for a quality pedal for just one effect

well if they are discontinued and then used wouldnt the price jack up?

so final poll

tremolo or chorus (a more controllable chorus seeing as i have one on my amp)
