Cherub Chorus

Great little chorus designed by Frequency Central.

Note: The reviewer shown below must have had issues with his build as when put together correctly this is a very nice effect.

This board is based on the Birthday edition, which includes MicTester's original anti-lock mod to stop the PT2399 sticking. It's also possible to include Jack Orman's NYE anti-lock mod with a few component changes.

Optional toggles for Vibe and Space Warble mods (which will be credited as soon as we can dig back and see who came up with them!).

If you opt for vertical-mount pots they have round shafts, so you'll need knobs that fix with a set screw. Feel free to wire in 'normal' pots if you prefer a splined shaft.

Partial kit: PCB, all board-mounted components, pots.

Full kit: As above, plus footswitch and appropriate daughterboard/components for your selected bypass type (see Downloads section for details of those), jack sockets, DC socket, battery snap, hook-up wire, LED.

Enclosure (pre-drilled) is only available with full kits, and will not take a battery. Knobs are not included.

Difficulty: Medium

PCB size: 50 x 50mm

Knobs required: 2

Enclosure: 1590B

Direct-Connect compatible (4-way)

Sounds great with bass too! 5 product stars
"Really good kit with clear instructions. The PCB is really nicely laid out so you don t need to cram long wires into the box. I went with the vibe and space Warble switches which allow you to get a huge range of sounds out of the pedal. I ve been using it with my bass and it sounds great! Would recommend" Joe - 21/07/2018
Better... 4 product stars
"Just following up on the review below. Not wanting to give up on it, I ordered a new PT2399 chip. Definite improvements immediately, as in, it now works. However, still finding that the controls have to be way up to get a strong effect, but it is very good when they are! So in summary, not much variability, but lovely sound when you dial it up, and I would now recommend it." Ian - 11/04/2018
Little effect from Little Cherub 1 product stars
"Like the first reviewer, I have built many pedals from Fuzzdog PCBs with no issues (I am currently on my 5th) but also like the first reviewer, I am failing to get anything other than the most subtle effect out of this circuit. Reading around the circuit online reveals many differing experiences, mostly challenging, but unfortunately none that explain the symptoms that I am hearing. I am afraid that I can't recommend this effect however much I recommend Fuzzdog's other products, as it would seem to be very hit and miss as to whether it will be successful or not."

Works Great 5 product stars
"Don't listen to the first review this pcb once properly assembled works great. I assembled it with all the options and they all do something different to the effect. You can listen this chorus online. I think it's a good sounding simple chorus for those not looking to break the bank. Thank you Fuzz Dog!" Kevin - 07/07/2017
Not Impressed 1 product stars
"I'm not sure if this chorus effect is supposed to be super subtle and barely there, but after building this and testing it and checking everything several times thats what I got... If I could give this 0 stars I would. It was a complete waste of money in my book. The vibe option leaves your tone dark and muddy. The space option is so barely different than the normal effect it's laughable. The depth control barely does anything before 4 o'clock. I am just completely unsatisfied with this effect. I love Fuzz Dog and it's pedal kits, but not this one. I've built the Filthy Frack and Echo Blue and both have come out better than expected, but I can't recommend this kit for anyone if you're expecting a usable chorus effect." Mike - 05/03/2017
