    I am looking at retrosonic, BYOC's chorus, analogman but I haven't decided on anything, yet? Help please.

    No offense - but there are 100's of threads just like this one... :D Also, check the lounge - there are clips from players using different choruses and you can get an idea what they sound. It depends if you want just a chorus, a chorus and vibrato, or a chorus and flanger.

    I also love Fulltone's gear. I have a Tube Tape Echo that is the sh*t. I like all the bell's and whistles of the Choral Flange (and Dave Foxx's TZF is ++good), but I have Mike's Bi-Chorus on my board. For live playing I just want to be able to switch easily between off, layers of Small Stone shimmer, and the Leslie-esque.

    There is no best chorus. Try before you buy. That said, I really like my Choralflange. Definitely better for me than the praised Arion SCH-1 which I also have.

    Cheers,

    Johan.

    +1

    Just received mine from Mike a couple of weeks ago...

    Lush Chorus with character (not sterile and austere like a digi-chorus). Stone quiet (no pun intended :AOK ).

    You can get Kurt/Nirvana and Billy Gibbons/El Loco tones all day long...:RoCkIn

    Go the depth switch for added dimension...

    The retro-sonic is very nice. Not so versatile, but just the deepest fattest chorus I've heard. Highly recommended.

    As much as I like the Analogman Chorus and would recommend that one highly... these days I'm really diggin the Boss CE-5 its got a very pleasing chorus sound that works great clean and works just as well with OD and distortion.

    The BYOC chorus is reported to be as good as the Analogman. I like the SCH-1 for the leslie type chorus and the good ol' TC Electronics is great too :)

    The "best" chorus is a bit like the best overdrive - best for what, or best for whom. Personal taste and needs dictate everything. Most of us aren't interested in qualifiers, so describing why you like something still comes down to personal preference.
    That being said, after my 20+ years of love/hate with chorus, I'm very impressed with my DLS chorus-vib unit. It's verasitle and musical.

    +1 on the Chorus-Vib. I have one and I agree with Tweeker it is very versitle and musical. Awesome Chorus.

    I have been toying for a week now with the Maxon CS9 Chorus Pro. It a very cool chorus pedal as well. I am still on the fence about which one I am going to keep. I really like the small footprint on the Maxon compared to the DLS. The Maxon is a good choice as well.

    I like the blend knob on each pedal allowing the dry signal to come through if you wish. I think the DLS might do it better.

    Oh well :) There's my 2 cents before I get back to work..
