DigiTech: Bass Multi Chorus

Purchased from: Musician's Friend

Sound — 10
This chorus pedal is undeniably very 'cold'. Definitely not the full, warm chorus sound of other models, however that's not necessairily a bad thing. At first, I wasn't fond of it's sound, but the more and more I used it and played around, the more it grew on me. I play in a punk rock band and I use it to get some spacey sorta sounds in a couple songs, and throughout an entire jazz/funk piece we have. It is a great slap-bass chorus pedal, and really carries the bottom end. I have the knobs set comfortably at level - 3/4, speed - 1/2, depth - almost full, and voice - 1/4 of the way up. This gave me a nice chorus sound for my Fender P-Bass run thru my Behringer Ultrabass Half Stack. Overall, it takes some adjusting, but once you find that sound, boy is it sweet!

Overall Impression — 9
I've been playing bass guitar for the past four and a half years and I love this pedal! I would easily buy another one and would not hesitate to purchase from DigiTech again. This is a great chorus pedal for all bass players (and it even sounds good with a guitar). I have preformed several gigs with this (on the adapter of course) and it has yet to let me down. Well worth your buck!

Reliability & Durability — 8
This pedal is undeniably reliable and sturdy (as you can tell from it's weight). However, it does suck the life out of batteries. I bought and adapter though, to take care of that problem. Trust me it's worth it with the $$$ of 9V's. Other than that, I've kicked it, dropped it, etc. It still works great!

Ease of Use — 9
This was the first bass effect pedal I bought. Hesitant to get a multi-effects processor after trying one in a local music store, I opted to go the whole single effect route. I'm glad I did! Seeing how the music I was into at the time was Nirvana/Grunge stuff, I decided that I needed a Bass Chorus pedal. This one caught my eye due to the looks and the $$$. It is incredible. Very simple to use. 4 simple knobs gives you control over level, speed, depth, and voice. Very easy stomp on and off control.

    I think I'll get one of these but could you explain what each of the controls does like speed and depth? because it sounds kinda confusing
