    I couldn't resist and pulled the trigger. It's an Ibanez SR605 and since they are no longer being made I got it from a seller in France. I can't wait.

    Yeah it is kind of cool. It's the only Ibanez that sounds good to my ears. Perhaps that's why they discontinued it.

    That's pretty interesting. The color looks like bubinga, but the grain looks like wenge. Does it have a volute? I think if it were '97-8 it would have one. If not, it is probably older, but I am not a Thumb historian. Hoggles will likely know the answer.

    Today I went on a Chorus Quest. I did my due diligence, hitting up three stores and trying out five different pedals. My thoughts on each:

    Walrus Audio Julia. This was one of the better ones. It was also the most expensive of the bunch. It added a brightness to the top end that was very slap-friendly, but probably won't be everyone's cup of tea.

    DigiTech Nautila. This does both chorus and flanger. The chorus seemed to add a lot of bottom end (not what I wanted). The flanger was pretty cool.

    TC Electronics Corona Tri-Chorus Plus. This was OK, but nothing special. I've heard demos of the regular Corona and the Corona Mini that I liked better than anything I got out of this today.

    MXR Bass Chorus Deluxe. This was probably the best one I tried all day. This or the Julia. This one also pulled double-duty as a flanger.

    Mooer Ensemble Queen Bass Chorus. This one was good for the price, but didn't blow me away. It had a little too much tremolo effect going on for my liking. But I'm still going to award them some bonus points for having the smallest footprint of the day.

    None of them really moved me as much as the demo I saw on YouTube of the EHX Bass Clone. I decided to go home, watch some back-to-back demos of the MXR and the EHX, and either drive back out and get the MXR, or place an order for the EHX.

    TL;DR: Incoming!!!

    One of the best filters on the market, IMHO.
