Arion SCH-1 Stereo Chorus

In the 1980's there were plenty of cheesy chorus effects and albums on the market. When Arion introduced it's cheap plastic line-up of pedals everyone thought "you-get-what-you-pay-for". But it was a surprise when this device started showing up on the pedalboards of none other than Michael Landau and Jon Amor. I remember running into a guitar player who claimed to have sold his $300 Danish TC Electronics Chorus in exchange for this little cheapy. Yeah, sometimes you can throw poo on a wall and it sticks. This device actually has a nice musical round shimmering quality and is still a great value for those in-the-know. I remember seeing one in the pawn shop for $20 but it was missing the battery-cover(plastic ya know). The Stage Tuner is also a great value for the money too. The original SCH-1 also does a great Leslie simulation that other choruses just can't hack. For more info visit..
