So what is it? TC? Maybe a chorus with a mix knob ala Maxon CS9 pro?
What say ye...
The DLS has a mix knob,as well. A useful feature,a nice sounding unit.
Another cool,subtle,chorus effect is running 2 amps,one chorused,one dry.
Joe Bonamassa uses the TC because he says it can be set very subtle. I can't confirm but I would say he knows tone.
I love my Maxon Vintage CS-550. Oh man can it be subtle and add that nice thicker almost chorus sound.
The 18 volt danelectro cool cat chorus is extremely subtle
I keep trying choruses but still come back to my Boss Super Chorus because it can be set very subtle with the mix control. It also seems to merge or become one with my guitar's tone. I am generally not a fan of Boss pedals except for my TU-2 tuner. Also, I have not looked inside to confirm but I have read that this is still all analog circuitry, unlike the Boss Chorus Ensemble. No true bypass for the purists and, while most of my pedals are true bypass, I have not noticed any tone sucking. I am staying with this one.
With all due respect, I have the Cool Cat and I don't feel it can be subtle at all. I recently bought the new MXR Stereo Chorus because of all the hype and some nostolgia as well, and I couldn't make it subtle. It also suffers from flanging effects that I've found with many chorus pedals.
The Boss Super Chorus may be what you are after, believe it or not.
And again, it's just my opinion but I thought I'd put my two cents in.
You can pick them up cheap. Best Chorus I've played/
Another vote for the DLS C~V - between the Blend and Delay knobs you can make it a subtle as you want, super versatile.
I have a TC SCF and it definitely can be very subtle if you want it to be. It's a very clean, transparent, studio-quality pedal with a lot of range. I'm actually using it right now in the flanger setting with an 80's new-wave'ish/post-punk'esque type setting (very subtle) and switching over to the chorus yields an almost indiscernable effect on the tone. So it definitely is very versatile and tweakable.

Well you could always not run a chorus and tell everyone you are . . . that would literally be the most subtle chorus of all . . .
I was thinking if you had the audience run in circles... that would be the subtlest chorusing effect I can think of!
Wouldn't that be more of a leslie effect?
You could have them sit in swiveling chairs and spin around the entire time and get a leslie effect!
Had a number of chorus', including the TC, but the DLS ended my search over a year ago. Simply the best, IMO.
Yes much more useful as a leslie . . . the RotoArse
The detuned setting on the Boss HR-2 is subtle...
and the lowest setting of the Boss DC-3 Digital Dimension gives good blur also.
I went through a BUNCH of them and the Rocktron Deep Blue is the one I stuck with. The rate and depth controlls are pretty standard but the intensity is a blend so it will go from lush and deep to nice and subtle. I had a pair of Rocktron rack rigs ( Voo-Doo Vave and a Chameleon ) and the Chorus in both spoiled me. NOTHING sounds like a Rocktron Chorus and these are DIRT cheap to boot!
I'd also add that the detuned setting on HR-2, while resembling a subtle chorus, is pretty useful for an easy double-tracked kind of sound as well. This is good for, say, the solo to "Money" and other David Gilmour parts.
