Working fine for me. You have to click the 'listen in browser' banner on each one. 

Yep I did. But nothing happens. 😞

A user update: I used mine for an extended Jam last night with my band. It sounds great on it's own or in combination with other pedals and doesn't lessen the presence of the bass in the mix. I'm very happy with it. It has replaced my octave on my board.

I got one and sold my hartke chorus for it before it arrived. While it's a slightly better built pedal it's not giving me exactly what I was after, a nice shimmery chorus. However, I think my idea of what a chorus is has been tainted by using multi fx units in the past where I think theres a big dollop of reverb in there too. The Eden does a great job of doubling the sound and it can shimmer a bit, but I can see why they aren't asking £99 anymore, I'd be disappointed if I'd paid that much. It works very well with other pedals though, I have it almost last on my board so I can feed it on driven signal and flange and it works nicely. I need a reverb anyway so I guess adding that I will get exactly what I want from it eventually.

Bargain! 15v though...bit of a ballache that my power strip won't do it. I've never owned a chorus and £30 would have been just nice to try it.  

Checked the website and it's back up to £99.  Pity, I would have tried it at £30, but not at £99.  I'll just keep an eye on the Effects for Sale forum . . .

I saw this. 

I just blew the money I had saved towards a Boss bass chorus on a Zoom B1on. Not in the same league but thwre are some nice toys on there; it's for home practice, not live though. I will have to buy a dedicated chorus at some point. 

I saw an Eden for £55 on eBay yesterday.

I'll probably offload mine for the £29 I paid for it to a BC'er. I think the EHX Bass Clone was more up my street, unless anyone can tell me how you get the "wobble"/"shimmer" in the Eden

Do people reckon using an Xotic Voltage Doubler (which does 15v) on a daisy chain would work on the i90 Chorus? I like the sound but having one pedal on the board which needs its own power is proving a bit of a ball-ache

If it does 15v it should be fine I would have thought.

Likely not -that Xotic device can only provide a maximum of 80ma, whereas the adapter supplied with the Eden chorus pedal has a capacity of 400ma; whilst there is no exact information (why not? lazy effort Eden!) on the current draw of the pedal it's unlikely they would provide a 400ma-capable power supply unless the pedal actually needed most of this.

It's also important to note that the pedal + power supply are DC centre-positive, not negative as on the vast majority of effects. Again, a poor effort from Eden IMO, there's no good reason why this should be the case. So if you use a different adapter you'll need to make sure you can flip the polarity, and if you do try any voltage doubling advice be sure to use a polarity reversing cable.

The extra power supply thing was annoying enough for me that I built up a cable with a 15V voltage regulator wired up, so I can now run the Eden pedal from the 18V outlet of my Strymon supply.

People should also know the pedal is not true-bypass; it has some kind of FET or transistor bypass.

Email Eden support. It may well be under 80mA, the adapter is just 400mA since most standalone adaptors put out way more than the pedal needs, and let's face it there's probably not a massive choice of 15V adaptors on the market for them to choose from!

Thanks all for advice. I'll email Eden and check the polarity on the xotic doobry. Although it may well be much easier to punt this pedal on to someone whose not bothered about the power issue.

Update... Having eventually used this at volume with the band I am far happier! This is probably the first pedal I've had that sounds better with the band than it does at home.
