Tech 21 Roto Choir or TC Corona Chorus or?

Would like to get one chorus pedal or leslie simulator that would do 2 things well for a decent price:

1. Have a lush/pretty soundiing chorus for worship stuff
and
2. When used with a POG2 will help similate a Leslie/Hammond B3 organ

The 2 in the title so far look the part? Maybe leaning toward the Corona, both for price and can have a few presets. What do you think?

Roto choir is supposed to be a leslie simulator, but some people say it sounds like a phasing chorus. I have yet to hear an actual leslie, so I do not know how close it comes. I preferred a vibe pedal in the long run, but still have it.

Corona is a versatile chorus with the toneprints, but I have not tried to make it sound like a leslie yet.
On top of a vibe pedal it can do something funky.
Sometimes I prefer the Detune in a PS-6 for width.

For a wilder chorus I will guess a Cosmichorus.

Choruses in general can simulate a Leslie on fast speeds. Harder to do for slow speeds. But since you're looking for a lush chorus, and a Leslie sound, I would say you're in the right direction.
Two pedals I'd recommend:
-For a fairly good Leslie simulation, the Option 5 Destination Rotation Single. Can be found at a good price used.
-For a great lush chorus that can do a great fast Leslie, the BMF Liquid Sky is killer.

Love my Roto Choir. It nails Leslie type tones IMO. The low speed does sound a bit like a phasey sort of chorus. One of the coolest features though is the ramping. Won't find that in a chorus pedal that I know of. The drive is great too, as well as the eq. It can get very bottom heavy if you want. FWIW, I had a rotating speaker cab (not a leslie), but it was just impractical to take anywhere.

I do not have the rotochoir, but I do have the corona. For the price the corona is a great chorus, esp when bought 2nd hand. You can do leslie type sounds, comparable to a good analog Boss CE Pedal.

I am sure the Tech21 is great (used to have the delay and reverb) but it's mono and it s considerably pricier as well.

The Roto Choir is stereo, just have to use a TRS cable. That's how I run mine and it sounds great, especially if you can spread the amps out a bit.
