A simple little chorus pedal with one rate knob and a switchable depth switch. Don't let the lack of dials to twiddle scare you off. The chorus sound is well voiced and already dialed in to that sweet spot. All you have to decided is how much of that sweet spot you want and how fast. The Small Clone has a special way of fusing with your guitar in an inseperable way that lets your sound actually breathe. If the sterile swirl of Boss and DOD boxes leave you feeling cold, I'd give the Small Clone a test spin. Unlike a few of the other Electro-Harmonix re-issue pedals, the Clone actually sounded better to us than our old original. It was remarkably cleaner and the chorus itself was considerably crisper. Aside from being susceptible to a few dents, the sheet-metal construction is fully ready for years of abuse on the road or your bedroom floor.

I bought this pedal a little over a year ago to get some weird grunge tones on bass and it works phenomenally. No low end or volume loss even at high rate and depth settings. After about eight months though a rather large singer I was working with took an enthusiastic step back right onto my small clone and pushed the toggle switch down into the chassis. The pedal no longer functioned. Using my GC pro coverage I was swiftly sent a replacement that also had toggle switch issues. And then when I returned that one another bad unit with switch issues. The GC clerk and I popped one open and ehx just uses a cheap switch. In short, great bass chorus, but the vintage chassis require a little extra care.

    Read an old article in which James Honeyman-Scott was talking about his rig. He used a Clone Theory with the Pretenders (and eventually switched to a Boss Chorus). The Small Clone is a spot on modern version, at a fraction of the cost. Easy to use, and has a full chorus sound. Just sounds incredible.

      Comments about Electro-Harmonix Classics Small Clone Analog Chorus Guitar Effects Pedal:

      As a solo acoustic finger style player, I was looking for a very subtle effect to enhance instrumental parts. I've owned other choruses in the past, and was skeptical at its rather large size and single control knob--and only a depth switch. I was pleasantly surprised. I run depth on high, the control knob on low, and get a nice fat--but subtle-melodic sound from my Martin. I haven't experimented with it much, since I'm so pleased with this setting. Good value, well made-though perhaps rather 20th century style--and USA made. Just what I wanted for a slightly different sound to bounce between my vocal parts and instrumental/lead parts. The foot switch is loud, but not enough to affect my performance. All in all, very pleased.

      Oscillation audible when pedal is in bypass mode

      Comments about Electro-Harmonix Classics Small Clone Analog Chorus Guitar Effects Pedal:

      I thought I was getting radio interference with my rig until I realized that the popping was always the same BPM as my Small Clone. One removed from my signal chain the interference was gone. Every EHX pedal I've owned has been substandard quality and this is par for the course.

      Great effect

      By BENJAMIN MCELROY

      from New Orleans, Louisiana

      Comments about Electro-Harmonix Classics Small Clone Analog Chorus Guitar Effects Pedal:

      This is a great pedal and for this price, it's a no brainer. It's built to the same standard as most ehx effects, which is very well made. It's all metal construction, true bypass, and has cool screen printing. I never cared for chorus at all and for a long time I never wanted any type of chorus on my pedal board. After owning this pedal, it's simply fantastic. In my array of about 10+ pedals, this one fits seamlessly. The great tone and simple controls are just what the doctor ordered. With moderate settings this pedal is extremely versatile. I set the dial around half way and use the switch to either go from a wobbly or a clean chorus effect. This thing can mimic the chorus sounds heard on countless records. As others have mentioned, it does however have a couple issues that I do not experience with other ehx pedals. It makes a loud unfavorable popping noise when switching on. It also has a slight low volume hiss when on. I have an ISP noise reducer that I leave on all the time so the hiss is not an issue (it's not actually the effect that hisses, it amplifies a low volume hiss from your guitar. That is where the hiss comes from. I have my noise reducer first in my chain and it eliminates hiss from the chorus even though it is placed much later and in the effects loop). As for the loud popping sound, it only pops on the first and sometimes the second time the effect it switched on. I simply power up my pedal board, then switch the chorus on and off a couple times, and then turn my amp on to warm up. I don't know why this pedal has these little quirks (hence the 4 stars) but I've found my way around them. All in all this pedal is great. If mine broke I would buy another to replace it. If they quit making it I would simply not have a chorus on my board.....simple as that.

      A KEEPER

      from HEMET, CA

      Comments about Electro-Harmonix Classics Small Clone Analog Chorus Guitar Effects Pedal:

      MY FIRST CHORUS PEDAL, AND I'VE GOT NO GRIPES ABOUT IT. IT DOES JUST WHAT I PURCHASED IT FOR, GIVES DEPTH AND AMBIANCE TO MY CHORD PROGRESSIONS AND ARPEGGIOS, WITHOUT SUBSTANTIALLY DENTING MY WALLET. ALSO SOUNDS REALLY NICE WITH SOME VOLUME SWELLS. IT GOES FROM SUBTLE TO A DEEP UNDERWATER FEEL. SOUNDS GREAT ON CLEAN OR WITH SOME GRIT. I RATED IT A FOUR JUST BECAUSE I HAVEN'T HAD ANY EXPERIENCE WITH OTHER CHORUS PEDALS...

      Get some decent cables

      By Tanner C

      from Kansas City, KS

      Comments about Electro-Harmonix Classics Small Clone Analog Chorus Guitar Effects Pedal:

      Awesome pedal, one of my favorites in my chain. Very simple to dial in yet has a WIDE range of possibilities. However, if you are using cheap patch cables you will get a terrible hiss out of this thing and a popping noise when turning it on- much more than most other pedals. Get some George L's and you're good. I still get a noise every now and then when turning it on for the first time, not sure if it just get static build up or what...click it once before you play, fixed. still 5 stars. This was my first pedals years ago along with a DS-1 to get some Kurt tones but it does so much more.

      Chorus Done Deal!

      By Philly V

      from wilmington, NC

      Comments about Electro-Harmonix Classics Small Clone Analog Chorus Guitar Effects Pedal:

      This chorus pedal sounds great. It has a rich and warm sound that adds to my tele deluxe. Really no need for a effect level, the level is clear and is not complicated or have unnecessary option. The power adapter is the only pain i have or would have had if i didnt have the adapter with my daisy chain.

      For Nirvana & Kurt Cobain Fans

      By Victor Rivera

      from El Paso, Texas

      Comments about Electro-Harmonix Classics Small Clone Analog Chorus Guitar Effects Pedal:

      This pedal is great for Nirvana and Kurt Cobain fans trying to follow in they're steps. Kurt Cobain uses this pedal with the Boss DS-1 Distortion pedal in the recognizable song Drain You from the album Nevermind. This pedal is great for sound like that of Drain You with that watery tone and sound. Even though it is a bit pricey, I would still recomend this pedal to you Nirvana fans.

      What a Chorus!

      By Leo

      from Las Vegas, NV

      Comments about Electro-Harmonix Classics Small Clone Analog Chorus Guitar Effects Pedal:

      Everytime I'd read something about this pedal there was someone mentioning Kurt Cobain's sound. Even though his guitar chorus sound is amazing, the Small Clone goes way beyond it! When testing it you'll think all the lack of knobs just don't matter at all! Its sound is very pure, and very versatile, even with only one knob and a depth switch! Definetly, the best one I've ever played with!
