    You might want to include this too which is at the same price range as the ones above. I've not tried it but have read some good comments about it.

    I have this one.


    Believe it or not it's not as "digital" sounding as I normally prefer, but it has a wide range of chorusing sounds and it's pretty quiet. Also, the delay is very nice.

    ...the cool cat is an astounding chorus, and unbelievably cheap if you can find one second hand. i have one on my pedal board. before i bought i had a unique opportunity to a/b it with the boss ch-1 and with the very expensive tc electronics chorus/flanger. it sounded about 95% as rich and lush as the tc electronics, at about 1/8th the price!

    That's what Ive been hearing about the Cool Cat.

    I've used a CH1 for years but now I want a more richer sounding chorus. I tried the EH Nano Small Clone but with just one knob, it didn't really give me much in terms of being able to dial in the type of sound I like. I could probably get the more expensive Analogman, Voodoo Labs and the TC Electronics, but I figured for the amount of time I use the chorus pedal, spending that much money on the boutique ones is overkill. Just my opinion tho.

    BTW, the new version of the CC uses 9volts rather than the original 18volts, I wonder if there would be a difference between the 2.

    ...i doubt it, but check out the reviews. i wish i had the nine-volt version, as it would mean one less power supply.

    I use an old Small Clone, an old CE-3 and a really old Guyatone PS series chorus. I like'm all for my needs and they haven't failed me yet.

    I use the EHX Small Clone Chorus. I love it. Very warm sounding. I also have the Deluse Memory Man and Small Stone Phaser. I've tried Boss pedals but I found them to be very tinny sounding.

    Analog Man Clone Chorus ... not cheap but very warm, rich and lush sounding, definitelly the best I have heard, on my pedalboard and not going anywhere any time soon.

    How about a Boss CE-1 Chorus ensemble? I'd post a pic but I don't know how!

    Run Like Hell without chorus would sound like a$$.

    Used with discretion chorus is a beautiful enhancement.


    Same goes for phase shifters. Some people just use them too much.

    ...i agree, for the most part. i get more use out of mine than most would, playing in a trio. i use it on one cover: runaway train (soul asylum), all the way through and, for that song, it really does seem to enhance rather than detract.

    generally, however, i find a thick chorus often works on a specific phrase, or section of a song.

    less, as always, is best.

    I'll vote for the Ibanez since it's the one I use. I play in a band which covers a lot of Fleetwood Mac and I get a lot of mileage out of the pedal, probably more than any other on my board.
