The TERC is available on Fulltone’s site but there is a lead time of a few weeks before shipping. https://www.fulltone.com/products/custom-shop-80s-rack-chorusDefinitely have been eyeing up the Tri-Avatar...The TERC looks compelling too. Not sure how available that one is. Between the two price points I'd have to justify if that extra bit of sound is worth it to my ears.
Thanks for this - that is great insight.
I was going to recommend adding an Eventide Micropitch to an existing chorus for more of that 80’s L.A. rack schmoo.I think you would do better with the eventide pitchfactor (or micropitch) in the mictopitch or h910/h949 mode. A lot of those guys were using the spx90 or eventide h3000 instead of chorus. If you want the 80s ballad clean chorus sound just add a chorus of your choice.
Beat me to it. The Stomp is loaded with those and so much more. In my opinion it's a must have if you want to add a TON of versatility to your board. I use the Helix floor which I bought because I started with the Stomp and loved it so much I went to the floor unit. I can't bring myself to get rid of the Stomp because it's so freakin' useful and convenient. Not to mention it keeps getting better with every update.I have found that the Line 6 Helix/HX Stomp platforms can get fairly close as well. They both have a tri-chorus and a detuner that can sound pretty convincing. Both are stereo effects as well. If I remember correctly, there are some YouTube videos out there on how to set them up too.

I'm a bit of a chorus whore (and grew up in the 80's)
The best chorus for 80's dirty sounds I have had is this:
Maxon Stafford 6348ST Koh Chorus in good working condition. This pedal was a collaboration between Stafford and Maxon. Sounds nice on an acoustic guitar too. Comes with Ninja Pedals Stickers + Pick | Fast Shipping!Description translated from Japanese:Developed agroundbreaking electric-acoustic gu...reverb.com
I've had (and have) quite a few- FTT Tri-avatar, Providence, Boss CE-1,2,5, Neunaber, SCH-1, Z and the JHS copy...and more.
But if you want to get your Dokken on (or any other 80's sound similar to that) the Koh Chorus I linked above gets it done the best to me.
