    Vintage Boss CE-1 is hard to beat. Fulltone Choralflange is cool too!

    Had the DLS chorus/vibe and it was cool, but (to my ears) seemed to have a little digital sheen or "tween" on the high end that I couldn't get past. I love the CE-1, though, and the Retrosonic Chorus is almost as nice.

    However, what's amazed me is that my FoxRox Through-Zero Flanger can actually cop the CE-1 sound almost to a T, and is better IMHO, than the Retrsonic. It's also super flexible and can conjur up all kinds of modulation mayhem in the chorus and vibe veins -- not to mention flange of course. :) Dave Fox has a few chorus-like clips on his site (although more in vibe territory) at http://www.foxroxelectronics.com.

    Cheers!

    Just got the DLS last night. IMO it's simply amazing. Best, most versatile chorus I've owned.

    I love to use chorus. I have tried the following:

    Analogman Clone Chorus
    DLS Chorus-Vib
    Maxon CS-505 Chorus
    Boss CE-5 Chorus Ensemble

    My favorite without a doubt is the Boss CE-5. I just think is sounds the best.

    If your looking for a chorus pedal to cop fast leslie sounds, go with the Analogman Clone Chorus.

    I like the sound of the Visual Sound H2O, but the packaging is very inconvenient for a pedal board.

    I have no clips, but when I was searching for a chorus (it was b4 I started on this board, so I didnt know about a lot of the boutique makers out there) I did a lot of searching, tried Boss, Dano, mxr, Digitech, and a few others. Without a doubt my favorite surprised me in that it was The Marshall (supervibe I think it's called) chorus. Does a great Leslie and puts a beautiful sheen on things. Very underrated pedal. And cheaper than the Boss which is cool for a mild chorus, but I wanted something stronger.

    I love my Analogman Bi-Chorus.

    My BOSS CH-1 Super Chorus sounds pretty good also.

    Any of the pedals that I previously recommended can easily provide these types of sounds. Also, the Ibanez DCL 10 series digital chorus pedal is a bit more zany than the average mass-produced chorus stompbox. If you run the invereted out in mono and crank the rate, you get a weird square wave vib-chorus timbre. Also, the Electro-Harmonix stereo Polychorus reissue may be worth trying. According to the original designer of the Clone Theory, it has similar circuitry, but is supposed to operate more quietly.
