No pedalboard is complete without chorus, and, for that spot,
DeltaLab offers the SC1 ($99 retail/$59 street), an analog design
that has a complement of Depth, Rate, and Level controls, along
with a blue LED that flashes in time to the Rate setting. The
SC1 is a fairly subtle chorus—it can do moderate, instrumentthickening
effects well enough, but don’t expect anything close
to extreme, even with the Rate and Depth knobs maxed. Actually
the more depth you dial in, the more the “shimmer” part
of the chorusing washes out. I found this made the SC1 sound
best for higher-gain sounds, and somewhat less so for sparkling
clean applications. However, as with the DD1 Digital Delay, the
SC1 has a warmth to its sound that makes it a particularly good
match for single-coil-equipped guitars. And also like the DD1,
the SC1 is much more impressive sounding in stereo. All in all,
the SC1 is a good choice for the money, and unless you’re the
type who likes to really slather chorusing on everything you
play, it may be all the effect you need.
KUDOS Pleasant analog-like sound.
CONCERNS Might be too subtle for some tastes.
