WHile you may not hear much Bass Chorus in pop or rock tracks it is perfect for funkier styles as well as solo bass work where it adds an extra layer of depth to the sound helping it stand out more. The Aguilar Chorusaurus is a versatile option that actually can work in many more styles due to the ability to dial in sounds from extremely subtle to quite in your face.
Simple 4 Controls
The Chorusaurus is incredibly easy to get up and running. Just set your level to match the amplifier, then use the width, rate and intensity controls to set how big of an effect you are after. By setting these low you will get a subtle effect that will just give your bass a slightly different character, turn it up with the level control and you get to almost synth sounding, rotary speaker effects.
Real Analogue Circuit
A lot of chorus pedals with this kind of range normally use a digital chip to create the sound but the Aguilar Chorusaurus is actually usin a classic bucket brigade delay circuit. This means no degredation of sound and almost perfect recration of your bass.
