    Uhmmm... AnalogMan Bi-Chorus... Nice two in one pedal. I own the Mini Chorus Clone and a ChoralFlange. Both are nice too...

    I really like my Fulltone ChoralFlange. It's super versatile and fat sounding.

    Could you be more specific? Does it need to be in stereo? Do you have a particular price range you would like to adhere to? Does it have to be analog? Help us so that we can help you.

    I don't own one but I've spent some time with the new MXR and it covers a lot of ground. Fulltone is great too.

    I don't know about versatile but the retro-sonic chorus and the Tc electronics are my two favorite chorus pedals. If you do a search you will see the rave reviews of the chorus ensemble. Also the Tc electronics is a very nice chorus a little more shimmery than the retro sonic. Eric Johnson is using a new Tc electronics chorus pedal.

    I use a Maxon for chorus and a retro sonic for Leslie type chorus sounds.

    This is probably going against the grain of "boutique" or vintage lovers here, but the MXR Stereo Chorus has bass and treble controls to get fat to shimmery chorus.

    I haven't compared it to anything else, but at $154, I had to try it in lieu of a fully tricked out AM Stereo BiChorus with mix nob and thin/normal/deep switch (@$400+). My other curiousity is the Retro-Sonic Chorus Ensemble.

    I still like my old Boss CE-2, but only use it sparingly. It's been on my pedalboard for seven years and I use a variety of different settings with it. Occasionally I might use my Boss DC-2, but the CE-2 is the main stay.

    i still use a good old boss ch-1. cheap and sturdy and can sound like a million bucks if used well. tried them all and have been dissapointed. however i wouldnt mind a try at a analogman bi-chorus. looks tasty

    Hey gearheads,

    My old MIJ Boss CE-2 mono chorus is still my weapon of choice on my pedalboard. The Arion SCH-1 does the leslie swirl quite well. For rack mounted chorus, I like my Roctron Intellifex with its 8 chorus voicings.

    Carl Martin XII chorus. 2 chorus's in one pedal. A little on the tall side compared to my other pedals, due to the built in power supply, but it's lush. I set one side up with a small bit of chorus to use with my overdrives, and set the other side up real juicy to use when playing clean. NICE.

    I've had a few chorus pedals over the years cheap and expensive but the one I'm really diggin now is the Boss CE-5, I can mix in what I need it can filter the highs or lows and works great clean or with distortion.

    I've tried just about all the choruses. If you want versatility the best to me is EBS Red Twister...

    * Stereo
    * Deep / Normal / Flange
    * Great sounding hi-fi dimensional type of chorus
    * Nails the CE-1 warble chorus
    * Decent flanger
    * Tiny package
    * Internal volume so you can have slight boost if you want.

    It's hard to beat. I've compared to Analogman, DLS, Medusa, Boss (DC-2, CE-5, CE-20), Line 6, H2O, Maxon, Fulltone, DreamTone, Retro-Sonic, Carl Martin.

    John
