I need one for cleans and heavy leads

I just use my digitech rp80 for them but I want a great chorus pedal

Cheapest possible but for best quality I can get for the low price

Ifyou know what I mean

Play heavy music with some cleans

go try out everything you can. chorus pedals all sound VERY different from eachother. its not like other pedals around. they all have a very unique sound that no other one will sound like.

my personal favourites are the MXR black label chorus, MXR stereo chorus, EXH stereo electric mistress, and Visual Sounds liquid chorus. hope that helped!

Well the MXR M-134 is by no means cheap, but i think it's one of the best you can get.

Maybe check out the Hardwire Chorus, it's fairly inexpensive and many people love the Hardwire pedals.

If you want a truly great chorus pedal, then this is the one to get:

It is expensive, but if you play through one, you will never settle for anything less. For the money, the MXR Black Label Chorus is hard to beat:

I do not have the money for that one lol


Of course you do. If you play through it, you will immediately begin to think that food and shelter are highly overrated. Then you will be amazed at how quickly you can afford it.

Seriously, it is a huge chunk of change (but well worth it). Take a look at the various offerings by MXR. They set the standard for Chorus pedals in the 1970s and early 1980s. They are still very hard to beat - unless you are a Red Witch Empress Chorus.

Lol I just need to spend as little as possible, I have college to think about still haha
#13
well the M-134 is a truely amazing pedal, it blew me away when i first got it.

Chorus is really an effect you should put some money into. There are budget options like the EHX small clone and DOD fx65. But you should really be looking for one of the following on the used market:

Analogman Chorus
Cmatmods Chorus
Red Witch Empress
Retro-Sonic chorus

And if you want to go all out:

Dr. Scientist Cosmichorus
Jam PedalsWaterfall

To this day the chorus in the Quadraverb is still my favourite. It may not be a pedal but it is footswitchable (I use MIDI). You can pick 'em up relatively cheap on ebay at times.
Gilchrist custom
Yamaha SBG500
Telecasters
Randall RM100 & RM20
Marshall JTM45 clone
Marshall JCM900 4102 (modded)
Marshall 18W clone
Fender 5F1 Champ clone
Atomic Amplifire
Marshall 1960A
Boss GT-100

I have a Boss CE-5 that I got used from guitar center for $40. And it has 5 switches and two outputs which really give you a lot of depth and options. I see them a lot around this price. Not a huge investment, and still a pretty good pedal.

Big fan of these. On a cheaper note, the CE-2 is great for a more stagnant, shimmering chorus and the BBE Mind Bender works really well for a thick, washy sound to more psychedelic warbley sound (also has a really nice vibrato mode based off the super-orgasmic VB-2). On the super cheap side, the new Dano Cool Cat Chorus is pretty nifty and can do some cool vibrato stuff at 100% wet

if you are looking for something cheap that sounds great, i took the gamble on a Guyaton Micro Chorus, and i love it,

musiciansfriend has it for $50, M1q23 will price match for $45 and free shipping. thats what i got mine for.

what i really like about it is that is sounds really thick and bassy, slightly due to the engineered bass and volume boost the pedal has. it really sounds great. i like it better thsn the EHX and MXR options out there in the $80 bracket.

I think you should go with a Aria Chorus CH-10, i have one myself, and i can't really find any problems with it for what i do. If i could get any chorus pedal, it would probably be that MXR pedal, however the price is not too fab.

Good luck, Jamie.

I hate it when people say something like this. You can get something decent for cheap, but if you spend a little more you can get something better and this goes on and on. Please state your maximum budget.

This x1000.

Give us a budget, and it will take the guess work out of it. Chances are if you give us a solid number, then most of us will agree on 1 or 2 pedals for you to look at.

I have many chorus pedals.

I think my favorite is the Hardwire CR-7. It gets this really phat warm vintage 70's style chorus... but it can also get the shimmery brighter 80's style chorus as well.

Boss CE-2 and CE-5 are both great!! The CE-5 sounds every bit as good as the more expensive hard to get "vintage" CE-2.

I also have the Boss CE-3 which sounds great on clean but there seems to be a slight volume drop with the effect engaged. It also muddies up distortion tones.

I also have the Boss Ch-1 Super Chorus and I like it on cleans.... but the delay time is very short so it almost sounds like a flanger on distortion tones for some reason. Cleans are great though.

I also have the Behringer CO600 Chorus Orchestra which, as far as I can tell sounds every bit is good as the Boss CE-2 and CE-5.

That Red Witch Empress one looks awesome though. I might have to pick one up someday.

I'm a collector of pedals.

I've found that out about behringer pedals...they sound really good but there not durable enough to gig with....I had a Boss CE-5 before didn't like it as much as the CH-1
The mxr black label sounds really a tad better than the ch-1 on distortion tones but I'd never buy one cause I won't buy anything that's a signature model...lol

This, though an old CE-2 is still better, IMO, because of the slight mid boost.
