    I forgot about that one, now that you mention it I'll definitely check it out. I think Rob Caggiano used one, or at least used to

    I used a DOD 250 with my Randell SS loved it

    Get an old Boss SC-1 off ebay. It will handle all of your metal chorus needs.

    Not an old RG, its the new 1003H one...I wish I had an old one though, they're beasts! And I'll definitely keep that in mind. My friend is a gear nut, I'll try to borrow a few ODs from him to see how they sound before buying one.

    I use the Yellow 18volt Mxr big giant thing. (who the hell knows what the numbers are)

    I use it in my loop but another bonus side effect of distorted chorus is that your WAH will also react differently and be more pronounced.

    Start with the classic 10 and 2 position and work your way from there.

    RG100 you say eh? I think an OD would be a waste of your time tbh. Overdrives really shine in front of tube amps as they 'slam' them and behave differently then when slamming a SS head. Also, they're usually used to tighten up the tone ratehr than 'fatten' in a metal context. See if you can try any infront of yours though...maybe it IS what you are looking for!

    Also, I use a BOSS CH-1 on my board infront of my amp sometimes in the distorted realm...its also what Alexi is using (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c5BjFlmXHzM) 8:30ish for the chorus part. Zakk used a CE-5 for the longest time.

    Thanks for the help! I'm also going to be getting an overdrive to thicken my tone soon (they look cheaper than the chorus so I'll probably get it first), is the EHX East River Drive a good bet? I've heard its basically a true bypass TS808, but I haven't seen any reviews of it for my style of music (metal).

    I used to use an Ibanez CS5 for that; it was the chorus that I had, and it did the trick.

    I'm partial to the EH Small Clone. Killer pedal and usually at a great price. EH stuff is always super cheap used. I got a Russian Small Stone Phaser for like $50 one time.

    I'd look into the Digitech Luxe. I've watched a ton of videos on that one lately, and it seems great for this application.

    TrueTone's H2O. You'd even get a nice analog delay too. There's also their pre-name change Visual Sound V2 series H2O or Liquid Chorus on the used market.

    The Boss chorus pedals are nice, especially if you can find one of the vintage Japanese ones... Actually, any of the chorus pedals you mentioned would do great.
