"DC-2w: A Very Quiet Chorus Pedal"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I bought this expensive chorus pedal for my Synthesizer Keyboard. I use only stereo pedals, so this DC-2w caught my eye. After receiving it from zZounds, I plugged it in to my isolated power brick, hooked up my gold-platted cables and turned the power on. Now after playing a couple hours with this pedal, I love it and hate it. I love its chorus sounds but not the limited options, however, it has a noticeable volume drop that would be about 20% of gain loss when the pedal effect is on. This is not cool if I am doing Synth Leads..There is no way to boost the volume of the pedal internally. I don't know if this happens with guitar connections at High Impedance, but keyboards operate at a Low Impedance so maybe that is the problem for this pedal. I wish they had a volume boost switch for keyboards, or a louder preset option so i can balance out my sound levels.I prefer my Boss CE-20 twin pedal for my Chorus effects, which has the Dimension C and volume boost options too. The CE-20 is discontinued but can still be found online. This is my recommendation since the DC-2w is a disappointment.
I play Keyboards and Drum Machines
