Ibanez CS-9 Stereo Chorus Pedal

Single-Effect Pedal

Made by Ibanez

Description The chorus effect uses a small time delay that's varied to produce a slight pitch bend. When the delay signal is mixed with the input (dry) signal, the resultant sound moves with a rich, thick undulation.

Gotta Love It! 'nuff said!!!
Model Year: 2004
Price: $0.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Guitar Center
Features:
I couldn't believe when I saw that this pedal had been rereleased. I missed out on my chance back in the 80's but I wasn't going to miss out on it this time. Next to this floor chorus, the only other unit I like is the TC Electronics unit. What I love about the CS-9 is the simplicity with excellent sound. 2 knobs, a footswitch and you are cranking.
Sound Quality:
Awesome sound quality. It is a great no frills chorus!
Ease of Use:
Two knobs - Depth and Speed. What more do you need???
Durability:
Typical Ibanez tank case of the past. Great live unit - Heavy Duty!!!

I have a Danelectro Cool Cat which I thought was a decent pedal until I got this one. I have not compared it to a new one, but I have heard that the originals one sounds much better. If it were lost or stolen I would try to buy another vintage one, and if I couldn't find one a new one might do the trick for me.
Price: $22.00
Where Obtained: Ebay
Features:
Very simple, speed and width. It has two outputs which when used sounds amazing. Run this baby stereo into two amps and the lushness of this chorus is just unreal. A volume knob would be nice, but I just learn to deal with it.
Sound Quality:
My main guitar that I use is my Fender American Telecaster Deluxe run into either my Gibson 4/10 Medalist or Super Medalist. I have also run it into two of my smaller tube amps for that lushness I mentioned before. This is suited for anyone wanting a great simple chorus pedal. No tone loss from this chorus pedal when on like I have seen with other chorus pedals.
Ease of Use:
Very simple. It doesn't matter where the two knobs are set, it sounds amazing.
Durability:
It is over 20 years old, so it must be realiable. I bought it off of ebay broken, but after about 10 minutes of fiddling and a jumper cable later I had this baby working. I don't know how it broke, but I am sure it was because someone was doing something stupid to it since part of the PCB was broken. I have never seen Ibanez pedals just quit.
