I want to have an acoustic sound when I play electric guitar sometimes, since many songs have some acoustic parts in them. In a previous thread I created, they said that chorus is better than buying an acoustic pedal. What do you think?

At first I thought You'd like to buy an acoustic guitar... so that's why I voted for acoustic. But know I think chorus because acoustic's pedals aren't very good...

Well the only acoustic pedal that comes to mind is the Boss one. Now im not going to nag about boss, but theyre really not worth it. Just go get an acoustic guitar.
Chrous wont make your guitar sound acoustic sorry. Just alot warmer and thicker and er.. chorusy.

I wont get an acoustic since I do already have it, but the thing is that wnt to be able to switch between dist. and acoustic quickly, and if you have to change guitar, it ain't quickly. So I guess it stands between an acoustic pedal and a chorus pedal.

Well I've not heard many good acoustic sims. I'd say get a chorus - chorus cleans are nice, but they don't sound like an acoustic. It'd be a very nice touch though.
The Laney Thread are big and clever. No exceptions.

Well er just switch your amp back to clean? Honestly when is it absolutely necessary for you to switch between acoustic/electric in the middle of a song.

Well acoustic simulators generally seem to work better on guitars with single coil pickups with more than 1 pickup in use. at least the acoustic setting on the roland cube sounded electro-acoustic with my fender cyclone... sounded crap with the bridge humbucker but with the neck pickup (which sound almost acousticly harmonic anyway) and both pickups at the same time sounded good.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

Chorus is good for electric cleans, kinda. A bit overused maybe, but then so are acoustic sounds. I love acoustic emulators though.

Hey man, **** effects pedals. What you need is a TUBE AMP. If you already have one, get one with MORE TUBES. It will automagically solve all your tone problems, for ever. Also make sure to bully anyone who doesn't own a TUBE AMP into getting one. Christianity didn't spread by throwing fluffy pillows around the place now did it!

^ you know nothing and your humour is poor.

anyway. chorus + reverb + neck pup is as close as it gets. Never really tested mixing 2 single coil pups before so give that a whirl as someone suggested.

I've only tried the acoustic setting on a cube and the behringer acoustic simulator, which sucked

A lot of it depends on your guitar, if you have a Strat-type or HSH guitar then you actually get pretty good acousticy tones from postions 2 & 4, particularly if you roll the volume off a little. A chorus pedal is a lot more versatile as you can use it to sweeten up your clean tones or also on your distorted sound. An acoustic simulator is a one-trick pony, and even then the results can be pretty disappointing.

...although in all fairness the Behringer does only cost about the same as a Ginsters Buffet Bar and a can of Apple Tango purchased from a motorway services.
