Guitar World Verdict

Two distinct voices in a chorus pedal is no bad thing and, combined with that wet/dry mix knob, the Comet covers a lot of space.

    Quality range of tones and practical control setup.

We were hoping that Gibson might delve into their past and give us a new stompbox with PS-1 phaser sounds but the sole modulation pedal in the first issue of new pedals is the Comet Chorus. 

Following the standard paradigm of any chorus pedal, this has knobs to control the modulation’s Depth and Rate (Speed) but also has a feature that’s becoming more common in this type of pedal – a Mix knob that sets the dry/wet blend of the effect, allowing nuanced setting up of the sound so you get a full range from adding an ear-candy whisper of effected sound to your dry signal for subtle interest right through to a full-on effect.
