Nice comparison video. I own an 87 Ibanez Analog chorus (SC10) and it's great, but doesn't really need to be on my board live as I'm getting worried about it getting damaged - those top-mounted plastic jacks weren't the sturdiest, and already had the pedal repaired. For a while I also had a Phase 90 and a MXR Micro Flanger on the board. Bought a Strymon Mobius and way happier - being able to adjust the wet/dry mix of the chorus on its own is a game changer for me, and then having rotary is a bonus. For playing live, I can't tell the difference, but it's nice to have multiple presets and to be able to organize them with the editor/librarian.
For a while I had a Dunlop Mini volume/expression pedal for speed, but found I wasn't using it. Part of me wants to streamline my current pedalboard, and part wants to keep my options open....

for truly 'modern' sounds, vintage pedals are the rage with a lot of younger players. I have a rather large selection at the studio.
The favorites are: '81 DOD 250 OD preamp, '82 EH LBP1, '79 EH small stone, '80 EH Deluxe Electric Mistress, '79 EH Poly Flange, '80 EH clone theory, '79 Mister Crybaby Super, '83 Morley Wah, and a few more like that. '82 MXR Distortion+, '85 MXR Dyna-comp etc
Shameless promoter/evangelist of audioscapeheiserman as they produce the finest enhanced descendants of classic gear available today.
Great video. The Boss chorus is phenomenal - sounds like what chorus is meant to sound like. And of course can't argue with the small stone. I need to dig out my vintage Roland Phase II (although the Pigtronix Envelope Phase does the small stone sound beautifully).
Pretty unimpressed by the H9 in this shootout tbh - thin and sterile. I know lots of top tier players love and use them...maybe for a streamlined gigging board.
