    I currently have a Fulltone Choral Flange, which is great, but what do you find to be the nicest transparent boutique pedal? Is it Fulltone, TC SCF, or maybe Analogman. For me it needs to be in stereo and full on clean settings.

    EBS Unichorus is amazing. Made for Bass, but has served me well. Got rid of my TC Electronics after getting it. The best I have played other than high dollar studio rack gear.

    I've been using the Analogman for 4 or 5 years now...I don't even think about other chorus pedals any more.

    I had an anologman Chorus and regretfully sold it a while ago........... But I just scored another one last week and will have it back on my board by Tuesday! The AM clone chorus is nice and thick and it also does the best faux leslie tone i heard in a chorus.

    Retrosonic Chorus Ensemble is on my board. One pedal that won't be replaced (or even thought of replacing!) probably ever.

    Very liquid and dripping wet chorus sound. One side is chorus the other vibe that does an incredible leslie-type tone.

    I just bought a Boss CE-20 and it's phenomenal. I got a near new one on eBay for $117. It has 6 different classic Boss chorus types to choose from...

    Rich - Just like the name - thick & juicy
    Bass - voiced for bass or heavy crunch
    Acoustic - voiced for acoustic guitars
    Standard - nice generic chorus
    Dimension D - legendary studio chorus, with all presets (7).
    CE-1 - the classic that started it all, from the company that invented it - what more could you want?

    Plus, it has 4 memory presets + Manual mode, fx Level, Overload LED, Hi/Lo EQ (cut/boost), Briliance knob & Ambience (reverb). The tones are exquisite. It is a double pedal, but it's more than worth it. It has a switch for accepting line level from an fx loop, or standard pedal/guitar input. Plus it's stereo In/Out. In stereo (which is how I use it), it is amazing.

    I love my ChoralFlange.... I get a great old school flange, a great CE-1 tone, and a sweet Leslie effect..... I'm glad I traded a Rotosphere for it....

    Old Electra pedal for the liquidy sounds, a Rolls rp-147 for the leslie chorus. And once in a while, an Ibanez UE-400.

    Hey guys,

    I have an old '80s Boss CE-2 chorus pedal that I love the sound of. It has a nice syrupy vibe about it and when I step on it, the mids seem to get pushed up. I usually run the rate and depth at low setting. I plan on getting the Keeley Hi-Fi mod for the CE-2 soon.

    But I don't use too much chorus. Unless you count modulated delay. :AOK

    I use mine for the pitch-shifting Vibrato tones 95% of the time...

    I like it too, not true-bypass but I don't hear any tone-sucking. The EQ with the Lowend bypass puts it a step above IMO. It sounds very good!

    The three I dig are the Fulltone Choralflange, Analog Man Bi-Chorus and Keeley Modded CE-2.

    Of them, the Fulltone gets the nod the most because of the mix and gain knobs. I also like that it is a bit "slicker" sounding overall.

    I've had a few pass through my hands (or a bandmate's) over the past 20yrs, though I confess to not having used them very much on gigs: MXR, Ibanez 505 & 9, Boss CE-1&2, t.c. electronic, EH clone, Analogman. Yet to hear anything better than the recent Maxon CS-550 in stereo, which unfortunately needs a wall wart & is OOP.

    A Boss CH-1 that I modded with a Indyguitarist.com kit. I love it, sounds like a leslie! Does the 80's pop chorus tone if I need it (hope I don't though!!)
