If you don't know which effect to buy maybe you don't need another pedal.

What is the rest of the gear you have?

What is missing from your sound? What do you want this new effect to do?

i'd get a flanger instead of a chorus. you can make a flange sound like chorus, and i've had great difficulty finding a chorus pedal i really like.

otherwise, if you have to ask what to get, maybe you dont really need one

Why not save a bit longer & buy a line-6 MM4? It contains more effects than you could ever imagine.

What amp do you currently have? It sounds like you're buying pedals for the sake of buying pedals, which is never a good idea.

But seriously, what amp do you currently have.

yeah stop buying pedals and get a new amp. preferably tube (unless you live in an apartment with paper thin walls).

Better yet, sell your current pedals and amp, pick up a used Vypyr Tube 60 for $250-$300ish, and go crazy with the effects.

i'd agree with getting a new amp, you'l be much happier with your sound.

but because i know how frustrating it is when your question never really gets answered...

i'm a huge fan of MXR and TC electronic pedals. mxr makes good analog pedals that sound awesome and are built like tanks (and are affordable). tc electronic does digital stuff that will give you a HUGE range of tones with the use of their toneprints (artists create their own settings that you can download right into the pedal).

i'd take a look at both those brands. if your curious how it sounds, just search it on youtube. proguitarshop, robchappers, and gearmandude do really good demos of alot of things

What you need to do is to buy a new amp.

You really need to sit down and think about what you want to do with your sound. Buying every effect that comes along is a very wet and slippery road to wasting money, especially when you're buying cheap effects like the ones you have.

There is no such thing as a must have, apart from a Playboy Bunny with her hands all over you all the time. If you want a range of effects just to have it, then I recommend picking up a Line 6 M13. All the basic effects you cold ever need, and then some.

If you feel you need to burn some money, send it to me instead, I'll see to it that it gets a good home.
