The looks of the pedal seem okay for such a great price.

I was planning to buy the milkshake chorus pedal, but this one seemed to have more options and capabilities.

If this item were stolen, I would definitly buy another one because it's just too good to resist for its price. I don't think that there is anyway this unit could be improved except adding a bit more depth.

My favorite aspect of this unit is the mono and stereo options.

If you want a versatile and high quality chorus pedal that is cheap, GET THIS ONE!
Price: $30.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Musiciansfriend.com
Features:
The aspect I like about this pedal is the fact that it has many features. It has 3 nobs:Rate, Depth and Tone. It has a switch that can be set from stereo to monoraul, 1 input jack, and 2 output jacks, a LED (Light Emitting Diode) and of course the main foot pedal. The pedal can be battery powered or powered with an AC adapter (you must use a recommended AC adapter).

The rate can go from a vibrato speed to a slow speed. The Depth goes to a decent level (it doesn't need to be any deeper). The tone control has a decent range.
Sound Quality:
I use a Silvertone guitar with a SmartIIs amp. I like to play all styles of music. It suits the sounds of the Police and even the band Rush.

The pedal sounds best and has the most dimension when the depth is at 8 o'clock,the rate is at 3 o'clock, and when the pedal is on stereo mode.

I have played through an Ibanez super chorus pedal, but it seemed to sound cheap for its price. This pedal sounds the same as the Ibanez pedal, but this one has a better deal.

Ease of Use:
Since the pedal's controls are so versatile you can obtain a decent sound in a short amount of time. You can use the tone control for more parameters.

Sometimes more options on a pedal can make it easier for you to get a good sound. This pedal has many options. You can easily make it sound more dimensional with the stereo switch. Or you can leave it on mono and put more depth.

I forgot to mention that the nobs are easy to adjust.
Durability:
The pedal is composed of plastic. But it is a durable kind of plastic.

If you decide to stomp really hard on this pedal, then you are most likely to break it. But as long as you don't propose to stomp on it, the pedal will last.
