    It's hard to find a single chorus sound that works for clean and distortion,
    And right there we narrowed the whole game down to:

    Analog/thick, digital lush, or double track style (aka longer delay time).

    Then, are you using it clean or distorted?

    If you can't get in THAT ballpark….you are done.

    And yes - I *almost* threw out Corona, but I'm a Digitech fanboi….

    As Aceman has said, the Digitech CF-7 has a lot of chorus models in it, I'm sure you could find one you like. They come up used on de' bay cheap sometimes but they are great pedals.

    The other "versatile" choice would be the TC Corona Chorus, with the Toneprint app you can download and try dozens of toneprints from their website. You can go to go here - http://www.tcelectronic.com/corona-chorus/toneprints/ and check out all the downloadable toneprints (they have sound clips of them). You should be able to find a used one on de' bay for ~$100 or less.

    It's hard to find a single chorus sound that works for clean and distortion, but that's just what Paul Gilbert was going for with his toneprint - http://www.tcelectronic.com/corona-c...caramel-apple/

    If you want an analog chorus, the H2O is nice, but you are limited to that one sound so I would definitely try one to make sure it is the sound you are looking for.

    Re: Suggest me a chorus

    and honestly theres more than just myself inquiring about chorus pedals here in this thread. so far ive had three and it hasn't been the "one". the boss super chorus wasn't as warm as what I wanted and the boss ce-5 just didn't have enough presence to me. the nano clone was great clean but when you engage distortion with it ....well it became a hissy pissy mess. mi have been eyeballing visual sounds because the H2O has that chorus delay combo. for me I want a warm analog chorus with as less hiss as possible when used with distortion. I play a lot of iron maiden and 80's type metal. I thought about an electric mistress but that venture with the nano clone has me a bit concerned by way of electro harmonix. Plus I'm a solid state sort of girl so naturally these are gonna sound different through my amp than say a valve amp.

    Larry Carlton uses the Visual Sound Liquid Chorus on his traveling pedalboard.

    Great chorus and they can be had used for under $100.

    Essentially, it uses the volume envelope of the guitar note to turn off and on. In one mode, it gradually gets deeper as you play harder. In the other, it gets deeper as you play softer. It is gradual, not like an on/off, and it works really well. Yeah, It does the 80s thing really well.

Then you have some cool non-chorus choruses like detunes, double trackers, vibratos with a mix control, a double chorus like the Boss Dimension etc. Maybe I'm just extra picky at the moment because I'm looking for a chorus for my smaller board at the moment too.
    I agree. Chorus seems simple enough, but they tend to be one of those things where you delve through a few that are just completely WRONG until you finally find the right one that works clean, or distorted, and then it stays for a long time.

    On a general thread note- dont overlook a electric mistress for chorusing. Worked for Lifeson and Summers very well

    Re: Suggest me a chorus

    I keep forgetting bout that one quite honestly.. It does hair metal well I presume?? I think the main thing I need to find is the right delay for that. Im in the ball park running both of my delays, but still cant quite get it..But lets iron out the chorus first.

    So, let me go right for the direct question... If you could buy one chorus for 80s metal stuff, would you get the voodoo labs, TC elec Corona, Boss wazacraft... or?? I have a Boss CE 5 currently
