Which flanger/chorus for high gain jet sounds?

Hi all! I'm looking for a flanger (hopefully with some chorusing option) that can do a deep and long jet sound that can be heard over a loud, hard rocking high gain band. I don't mean any weird/special sound, just a jet sound that behaves well with high gain and can be heard over hard rock riffs and loud cymbals.

Extra points awarded for a flanger that does some chorusing, too.

So far I've only tried Boss Hi-Band Flanger, which was way too subtle.

How about EBS Red Twister? Or what else?

Thanks!
MIKE

Oops, forgot to mention that I'm NOT looking to spend big bucks for a flanger as I'll use it so rarely. Big bucks are meant for the ODs ;-)

So much for the foxrox... :-(

That rules out the Choralflange ....

The old Ross flanger (big AC powered one) was capable of doing this as I remember. I don't know if thy're still cheap though.

The yellow 9-series Ibanez flanger was also good for this effect I think - but it's been years since I plugged into one.

The new Tonecore (Line 6) Liqua-Flande. Some whacky sounds in that one. Looks to be packed with features for $119 new & shipped.

I paid $23 for an old Arion flanger. Sounds like a flanger has lots of knobs for altering the sound.

I've gotten the type of sound that I think you are describing by using a fuzz pedal into a phaser. Sounds similar to the solos on Smashing Pumpkins' "Siamese Dream."

+1 on the Liqua-Flange

It's even got a setting inside the manual for 747 Flange. Check it out. Probably sounds best in stereo.

Yeah, the ol' yellow Ibanez flanger will get you jet swooshes. Long time ago, I used to use my guitar volume to fade in on a cranked tubescreamer->flanger, then run it through a delay before going to my amps (2 Twins). It was like the Blue Angels flew through!!
