Overall: I have an unplugged project of two acoustic guitars and two vocals. I use this chorus mostly for some of the kool delicate fingerpicking. Gives an awesome warm dimension to the open chording and open/alternate tunings I use. Has a small footprint, one knob so it cannot be any easier to use (I use only three settings, 7, 9 and 11 o'clock), and built like a tank. There is a demo video on zZounds for this product. Check it out as you won't be disappointed. Note: I rated "Manufacturer Support" a 5 as this page will not let you finish with selecting something. Being new and built like a tank I have yet to experience any customer service issues with MXR as of yet. But I suspect they are great.

Sound: I was looking for something simple to adjust on the fly for gigs and this one is just so darn easy to use. I use chorus mostly for the fast warbly vibrato-ish thing with the amp cranked up. It does this well. I use on some clean parts. Sounds just fine. and honestly no one in the crowd is going to notice the difference between this and any other chorus pedal anyway. I do use a different one for recording because it has 4 adjustable parameters. Quality: MXR pedals are as sturdy as they get. Value: Got a blemished one for real cheap here on zZounds. I can't find the blemish anywhere! Manufacturer Support: Only ever contacted MXR/Dunlop to register my pedals. Overall: The only knocks are because of the one knob operation BUT that was also the appeal for me. Like I said I wanted something I could adjust real quick and this is perfect for that. I do not use it to record though.

Sound: I was looking for a chorus pedal that wasn't too expensive, but had the sound I was looking for. I am able to get those sounds and a good price from this pedal. From the jangly sound of the Pretenders to the watery sound of "come as you are" by Nirvana. Feature: Its very simple, with just one knob, and when the pedal is off, it does not effect the tone at all, which was another quality I was looking for. Ease of Use: Easiest pedal to use that I own. One knob. Quality: It seems to be well built, I have only had it for a few months so I cant really comment on this question. Value: I was very happy with the price. Manufacturer Support: I have not dealt with the company that built the product. Overall: If this pedal were lost or stolen, I would replace it with the same product.

"NEEDS TO BE RE-DESIGNED" submitted May 3, 2011

Sound: The sweep of sounds is OK considering its only one knob. Somewhat unique sounding. However my complaint is like others stated; there is a slight gain in volume when turning it on. I thought I could live with it but it became annoying quickly. If it did not have that issue I would have kept it. So back to my CH-1 which sounds better anyways.
