I've been looking for the flanger and chorus pedals that would best suit me but I wanna know what you guys think. I can't decide which to buy and can't try most of them out. I don't have a ton of money to spend, so if you have any other ideas try and keep them in a reasonable price range like the ones below. I play classic rock mostly with a Gibson Firebird Studio into a Carvin V3 halfstack.

Flanger pedals I've been looking at:
- MXR 117R
- Ibanez AF2 Paul Gilbert Signature
- EHX Electric Mistress

Chorus pedals I've been looking at:
- Visual Sound Liquid Chorus
- Tech 21 Boost Chorus
- Hardwire Chorus
- MXR Analog Chorus
- MXR Stereo Chorus

If there are any other pedals you think I should look into or would fit my style more, please let me know. Thanks in advance

For the chorus pedal I would suggest the Boss CE 20. I bought one a year ago or so and its worth the money. There are several settings to chose from and you can always do something different with it. You can also save prests in it and move between them during a gig. Its very nice

I just picked up the MXR Analog Chorus, very nice chorus pedal with one slight drawback. It's not true bypass and while its an amazing sounding chorus when its disengaged its a tone sucker. If you have a bypass loop than I would say go for it.

I like TC Electronic (I own the Nova Delay). Does the EHX Small Clone have enough versatility though? That's one of my main concerns

+1 to the EHX Small Clone. Awesome sounding pedal. But as for further suggestions there is:

TC Electronic - Corona
CMATMODS - Analogue Chorus
Ibanez - CS9 Stereo Analogue Chorus
Carl Martin - Vintage Series Chorus V2
Malekko - Omicron Chorus

As for Flanger:

TC Electronic - Vortex
Boss - BF2 Flanger
Carl Martin - Vintage Series Classic Flange V2
Source Audio - Tri-Mod Flanger
T-Rex - Tonebug Flanger

Hope this helps!

What type of chorus do you want?

It's got one knob and a depth switch.

EHX Small Clone will do that. I wrote a review on it which you can check it out through my profile.

If money wasn't an issue, go a Red Witch Empress.

Vortex is great.

I hated flanger, then bought one used.

Now I like flanger.

MXR Analog Chorus is pretty cool, same with the TC Corona. For Flangers the MXR 117 sounds good but is pretty complicated to use, i think the TC Vortex is good.

I have the MXR Black Label chorus and am pretty happy with it. Something to consider I suppose.

Cathbard: like I said I'm the original post, all the ones I listed are in my price range. So around $150 max. I'm willing to buy used. Flanging sounds I like are pink Floyd, rush, and van halen usage of them. (something that could be versitile enought to cover all those).
#22
You're not going to find one that does Pink Floyd/Rush and Van Halen. The Electric Mistress does the PF/Rush tones since that's what both used. Van Halen would be covered by the MXR Flanger. The EM can kinda sorta get close to the MXR, the MXR is a one trick pony.

For chorus, just grab a used CE-2. They can be had fairly cheap.
