    The Boss CE-5 is versatile and sounds pretty good. You should be able to find a used one for around $50.

    A couple of hours ago I was in a store comparing a Boss CE-5 to a Digitech X-series Multivoice chorus & the Digitech sounded MUCH better. You can buy them on ebay for about $40.

    You could get a used Voodoo Lab Analog Chorus. It's a clone of the old 1976 Boss CE-1 and it sounds just like it. The CE-1 is the most famous vintage analog chorus.

    Airy or watery chorus sound? Personally I like the airy sound and if you're going for that I'd try to find a used CE-2 or a DOD FX65 (surprisingly good!!). The Ibanez CS-9 Reissue is also very good, but a bit more metallic sounding than the aforementioned two. For watery, the Small Clone is definitely best for the $$.

    EHX Small Clone fo sho... But if that isn't your thing, then go for the Voodoo Lab.

    Get a used Voodoo chorus. If you can save up, and buy the Analogman one.

    I have one of those Digitech RP250 multi effects things. It's pretty craptastic sounding (bought it used mostly for the simple drum patterns and USB recording capability). Anyway, the Multivoice chorus effect is really good. And I usually don't care for chorus. It's very natural sounding. Not 'vintage vibe' nor leslie, just a somewhat subtle, pleasing chorus.

    So +1 on the Digitech Multivoice if you can get it cheap.

    a Used voodoo lab Chorus is the right one.

    And, take look at the Visual sound H2O. (If you are not a TRUE BY PASS fan)

    I like the BYOC for thick, lush, watery stuff. AND I have one for sale cause I need light and airy!

    Srry for the spam but the BYOC really is a cool chorus if its what you are looking for.
