    I'm with you on the 'not knowing how to describe sound'. But I have been recently checking out the analogman line or choures. Not sure about how close it sounds to a CE-2, but I think it sounds great and plan on picking one up in the near future. Check it out with some clips here:

    Check out a DLS Chorus~Vib - I don't have direct experience with the CE-2, but the DLS is an extremely versatile and great sounding chorus, IMO. It can do very lush CE-1 type analog tones (I do have experience with those), or the 'dryer' TC Electronics type. It also does really nice Vibrato and faux-Leslie type sounds. True Bypass, stereo outs, 9v power, input/output level adjustments, etc.

    $189...

    I have had my eye on that pedal for ages....it looks lovely....but it does look like a dog...the ugliest thing on a pedalboard.hehe

    I have heard that the retrosonic chorus ensemble is worth springing for...

    or maybe..just a small clone:dude (are these now TB?)

    +1 on the analogman clone chorus, Im saving up for a stereo bi-chorus. Theyre expensive, but Im sure theyre well worth it.
    +1 on the new empress from red witch too, they look awsome, and that would be my second choice, but on a budget for $200 or under I would also recommend the DLS chorus~vib...looks solid.

    DLS Chorus~Vib doesn't just look solid. It sounds just like the adjectives you are using.

    Home Brew Electronics THC Chorus, you can get them for about $179 and they sound amazing.

    Cheers,

    I use the Vibrato setting on my DLS 95% of the time - it gets very nice Hammond B-3/Magnatone style vibrato tones. Not quite a VB-2 (which I've owned in the past), but very good IMO.

    The key to the DLS is the Delay knob, kind of hard to put into words but it has a pretty dramatic effect on the voicing of the effect (you can get some pretty intense detuned stuff at max settings). The Blend knob is what sold me on it though - the ability to add as much effect to your dry signal as you wish is VERY cool...

    The Ultra Chorus is basically two Chorus~Vibs in the same box...

    +1

    I have a the Maxon 9 pro series chorus http://www.maxonfx.com/9/cs9/ as well and it has the blend knob. More of a traditional "80s" chorus sound in that pedal. DLS has that lush shimmer. FWIW :)

    DLS is awesome.

    If you like the CE-2, then use a CE-2. It's a solid pedal, why would you want a more expensive version of the same thing?
