    Is there a thick stereo chorus pedal that I haven't heard about?

    Boss CE-20 - 6 different chorus types to choose from, including the legendary CE-1 (from the original guys) and Dimension D.

    Maxon CS550 is pretty thick. I have one but I started using the Anaolgman instead since I play with Humbuckers more. The CS550 fattens up a strat really nice though.

    Arion Sch-1 or Sch-Z. Super thick and easy on the wallet.

    Hi,

    I like the Carl Martin for thick chorus. It comes with the bonus of being two units in one so you can set one to slow and beautiful and one to wicked and wobbly!

    Cheers,

    Retrosonic Chorus Ensemble - none thicker. CE-1 clone. F*ck the rest - buy the thickest.

    Too bad it isn't stereo.

    Dreamtone stereo Chorus might be one too look at. Has a few nice features for the price.

    I've tried the following: Analogman, Retro-sonic, Maxon, Medusa, DreamTone, Rockman, Fulltone, Boss DC-x, Boss CE-20, H2O, MXR... The deepest thickest sounding one to my ear is EBS Unichorus. The Red Twister is very rich and deep too but not as thick as the Unichorus.

    It's funny, to my ear, the Retro-sonic is very rich and deep but it's not thick. It does a shimmer thing that I like a lot but I wouldn't call it thick. I guess terminology is somewhat subjective.

    Here's how I use chorus terminology:

    rich/organic - warm and harmonically rich sounding
    deep - You definitely know when the effect is on. Opposite of subtle.
    shimmer - Emphasized high frequencies
    thick - Emphasized low frequencies

    Then there's also warble verses dimension which I would use to describe the basic type of chorusing. I refer to pitch bending vibrato as warble. This is what the CE-1 / Retro-sonic and Analogman do so well. I refer to a more subtle slow moving chorus as dimensional, The Boss DC-2 and Rockman excel at this. The DreamTone and EBS choruses can do both types well.
