I have recently resurrected my Ibanez CS-505 chorus pedal. It's been tucked away since the early 90s. A lovely old analogue chorus sound that I love on bass. I'd forgotten how good it was :-)

The guitar soul food is average, but I’m not sure how much help I’ll be.

Somewhat related - I’ve got a Bass BB preamp I’m about to put up for sale - yours if you want it.

Cheers mate, may a change of plan with acomodation so possibly will have a rig with me

Should know about July I reckon :lol:
Going to have an arguement about GeoTech being done as part of any repair strategy. It's meeting resistance

Should be finished 2021! I'm thinking positive

Cool. I had the cs-9 reisshie for guitar. I tend to add chorus on bass in recording.. makes everything come alive. Good old bucket brigade analog circuitry, can't go wrong. The ibanez is probably just as good as EHX classic offereings.


Never tried an Ibanez pedal

For Bass Chorus I like the Tech 21

I bought the CS-505 back in 1982. 2nd pedal I owned after having an original Ibanez Flying Pan. It's more low-fi than most chorus pedals and has a lush rich slow chorus (if that makes sense). Nice to resurrect it :-)

Can you guys give some good examples of songs with bass using chorus?

Yep, I have one and love it. Great transparent drive that doesn’t mess with your amp tone, just dirties it up and pushes it harder. I run it into an Aguilar Tone Hammer 500, and they work well together.

Foal, that sounds like it would go well with your amp.

Examples maybe not good:

Guns Roses - Sweet Child
Ozzy Osbourne - No More Tears
Tool - 46 by 2(?) possibly a flanger btw
Joy Division - 24 Hours
New Order - quite a few
Frank Zappa - Alien Orifice


Lots of fretless bass with chorus
