as the title says i am looking for a fairly low budget chorus pedal, i was thinking of the ehx nano clone? anyone had any experience with them?
Nano clones are no good. Try to find a Neo clone. They're good.

The Hardwire CR-7 is really, really good, but might be out of your budget.

Boss CE-5, Chorus Ensemble. Nice because it has two outputs. One to go back to the amp and the other for a tuner or what have you. Not to mention that the chorus effect is great.
