This would be one of the earliest bass choruses on the market. Many Boos pedals though look the same are made in different countries. This occurred a lot during the 80's when they would switch from the the factory in Japan to the factories in Taiwan. People also claim that they have a slightly different tone as well. More than likely they do as production methods vary from place to place. Just as much as sometime two of the same amps or even guitars can vary in tone and feel.

Only three control knobs change the variance of this pedal. You had a rate, level, and depth control knobs. The rat was how much the affected signal changed or added the modulation to the signal. The level was the overall volume of the pedal, and the depth would simple add dimension and how the pedal will produce the inherent character of the modulation.

SOUND QUALITY

The tone of this pedal can either play a great effect on your bass tone or it can give you an annoying effected sound that you will eventually turn off or throw off your pedal board. The tone can be as subtle or as pronounced as you need it to be. This was a popular pedal in the 80's since the heavy use of the reverb on drums and chorus on guitars and bass to expand the dynamics or spectrum of tone within many recordings.

I like to use just a slight bit of chorus to my bass tone because it just adds some needed color to the tone which expands the smoothness of the bass. I like it to stay on most of the time so it usually is in front of my amp's input.


OVERALL OPINION

These pedals have now been discontinued and a newer more versatile product is now on the market. This would be a nice pickup if you can find one made in Japan. They both have green labels so you would have to physically look at the place or origin.

I would recommend this pedal to any bass player who is not happy with his dry tone and needs some help glamorizing his bass rig. It can be added for subtlety or it can dominate you tone. Either way it can be a very cool pedal.
