Moog MF Chorus vs Walrus Julia

I've nailed down my chorus search to these two, which both seem like great pedals. They seem warm, versatile and capable of some leslie-ish tones.

Of course I can't just try them locally (that would be too easy), so I'm asking you guys. Any reason to pick one over the other? Has anyone A/B'd them?

The Julia is capable of more sounds, but the ce2w delivers the classic tone we all know and the ce2w is stereo.

I would definitely try the ce2w before looking further afield

What is the Julia based on?
I don't know, but looking at your original post, if you are after Leslie sounds you should look at the neo mini vent (very expensive) or the Strymon lex.

Your local shop may have a boss vb 2w, which I hear does a good Leslie tone

He's not the OP, I am :D

Anyway the leslie sounds are just a bonus for me and don't have to be very accurate. Just being being able to turn the rate up and get in the ball park is enough, the base chorus tones are more important

The MF-Chorus is my favorite stompbox chorus. It delivers a large array of tones and can cop a flanger feel (regen knob) along with vibrato-type tones.

It is very much its own thing. Here is a review I posted some time ago: https://www.thegearpage.net/board/i...ith-other-well-reviewed-chorus-boxes.1556890/

I haven't owned a Julia but it seems much more CE-1-esque to me in videos.

I would buy a CE-2W before I got a Julia and an MF-Chorus before all.

[I do own a CE-2W and really like it.]

Im in the same boat for my next chorus and Julia sounds so great. Moog does too but I feel like I can get more classic sounds with Julia

Keep us posted ;) I like that the Julia seems to have it's own thing going, while still being able to get some classic tones.

So how did this end?

I haven't found a chorus pedal that can knock my Digitech Nautila off my board. I was always a diehard analog guy, but I can't tell the difference with this pedal....so good!

That said, I still want to try the Moog MF chorus and Walrus Audio Julia Chorus. :)

I went with the Julia because the vibrato is just as good as the chorus. Every other analog chorus with a vibrato setting I've tried, always sounded a bit compromised on the vibrato mode. As in the frequency oscillation had an odd shape to it that I couldn't get used to. Like a lopsided triangle instead of a more organic sine wave. Overall the Julia is so usable and versatile that I instantly fell in love. A lot of chorus pedals are just too in your face and have a blatant 1980's vibe, which is good for certain things but not something I'd want to make space for on a crowded board.

I'm really interested in the Julia to. It sounds amazing in the demos I've listened to. Much more so than the Boss ce-2w. The MF Chorus is the only other I'm interested in. I already have a Deco so can already cop more classic chorus/flange type sounds so will almost definitely go with the Julia. I love the sort of hybrid chorus/vibrato sounds it can produce, sounds addictive!
