Chorus/Flanger suggestions

Im planning out which Chorus and Flanger pedals to add to my rig. I want both to have a deep, warm sound that will make my cleans sound nice and wet (I play shoegaze/post punk/post rock). For chorus, Ive been looking into trying out the MXR Stereo Chorus and the EHX Clone Theory (although in the PGS demo of the XO Clone Theory, the pedal seems to add a bit of grit to the tone, which I do not want), and for the flanger Ive been thinking about the EHX Deluxe Electric Mistress. Any other suggestions or thoughts on these? Id prefer to keep it under $150 per pedal

i just got the small clone yesterday and absolutely love it. you can play with the depth by tweaking the innards (or so i read, haven't tried yet)... as per flange, I used to have the Boss one which I thought was an ok flanger for the price. A bassier tone...

the fulltone choralflange is imo the ultimate shoegaze chorus pedal. the flanging is pretty decent as well. prefer it to the electric mistress (which sounds horribly tinny and metallic). the chorusing on the choralflange is a lot thicker than the small clone and goes really nicely with reverb. can get pretty intense and wobbly too.
it can also do those really dry-sounding chorus tones with the delay up, which you hear quite a bit in post punk music.

I second the choralflange, but the EHX Polychorus is worth a look too.

i like my tc electronic scf for chorus and flange(chorus on it is better than the flange). my old roommate got a vintage ada flanger that made me chunk my pants, it's amazing. and for chorus... hehe... how about a boss ce-1?

ive always liked the sound of the ibanez fl-9. to be fair ive never actually tried it (i think i have seen it in a store once) but i have heard it live and the clips ive listened to sound very nice. i know that people out there like it, so i figure id throw it in the ring.

For post-punk, vintage Clone Theory is the only option!

Agreed. They sound awesome, especially for the price they go for used. I've actually owned one TS. It got traded in though caus I don't use flange all that much. The Maxon is even better but for the price I'd rather look for an old A/DA.

Choralflange. You've got both pedals in one, and it's definitely cheaper than 300$. They've been discontinued though, so you'll have to go used.

Why would you bump a 3 year old thread?
