"Squire, who felt that certain effects were better matched with neck or bridge pickups, rewired his Rickenbacker with stereo outputs in the early ’70s. Onstage, he used a boatload of vintage effects, including Maestro Fuzz-Tone, TC Electronic Stereo Chorus Flanger, TC Nova Reverb, Boss OC-3 Super Octave, Mu-Tron III, and custom-made tremolo pedals. He played Moog Taurus bass pedals, eventually triggering samples from an E-Mu ESI2000 sampler."more
Today I use a simple pedalboard that Dave Wilkerson from Techstar built for me. It is loaded with an Ernie Ball volume pedal, a Cry Baby 5350 wah, Boss DD-3 Digital Delay, MXR DynaComp, Boss GE-7 Equalizer, Boss Chromatic Tuner, Voodoo Lab Tremolo and Sparkle Drive, and last but not least, the good, old **T.C. Electronic Stereo Chorus.** These are all permanently installed on the board and powered by a Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2. Everything is stock – no modifications at all. My favorite stompbox is the Boss GE-7 equalizer – that little box is fantastic and I can get any sound I want out of it. https://www.premierguitar.com/articles/forever-young-reggie-young-1?page=3more

The TC Electronic Stereo Chorus Flanger is the ultimate chorus pedal. Sparkling, true stereo sound. Pitch modulation, chorus, or flange with 100dB quiet operation and 20Hz-20kHz frequency range. Features width, intensity, speed, and a mode selector switch, plus gain-adjustment overload indicator. On/off LED and built-in power supply for AC operation. The absolute fattest, richest, chorus/flange sound in existence.
i'd compare this to my mxr bass chorus deluxe and their both very simular.
get the tc electronic stereo chorus if you want a subtle chorus and pitch modulation. great natural tone, but more subtle than the mxr bass chorus.
the mxr bcd is just deluxe. you can set how dry or wet the signal is.
the size of the tc is slightly bigger. it's not a big difference. the tc stereo chorus can not be powered by a powet supply. it has a permanently plug built into it.
mxr definitely based the mxr bcd off the tc electronic stereo chorus. i'd suggest the mxr over the tc.
the mxr is smaller, can be powered by a 9v power supply, and it's dryer on the E string. overall a modern take on the tc electronic. also, their is the ebs unichorus studio version.
Essentially, the SCF combines three effect types. All of them modulation effects: Chorus, Pitch Modulation and Flanger. Operation is simple as you simply flick a 3-way switch to choose the effect type you want. From then on, the three control knobs are the same regardless of the effect type you’ve selected.
I use it only as a stereo chorus on my small board. First, you have a SPEED knob that defines – well – the speed of the modulation going on. Second, you have a WIDTH knob, which is equivalent to the DEPTH knob on many other modulation pedals. Finally, you also get an INTENSITY knob that works a bit differently in each mode. For chorus it sets the wet/dry mix balance, for flanger it sets the feedback and in pitch modulation mode it increases the intensity of the effect amount gradually.
Since listening to Eric Johnson as a kid and then Jamie West Oram recently, I wanted a chorus that had a little extra punch. I also love the organic flange sounds of the pedal. This pedal is the perfect chorus and there is a reason its on a lot of boards!
