i like the look of the analog man one but dont have the extra cash to spend on it and tbh it would be wasted on my amp

I really like my joyo. Subtle sounding, true bypass and cheap, I got it, a phaser, a delay and a tuner for about $130 shipped.

I too am looking into chorus pedals with a similar budget of £40-60. Currently using the chorus on the Pocket POD, but it sounds almost "chewy" to my ears. (not sure how to describe it, but quite artificial) Favorite chorus tones are slow and almost slightly phasery, on clean single coils like Steven Rothery's clean tone. (Marillion, I believe he uses a dedicated Roland chorus amp for this?)

I'll be looking into all the suggestions here. Local music shop doesn't stock pedals any more so can't test them.

Was considering the Small Clone (but seems more geared towards over the top sounds, wobbly stuff; only a rate control doesn't really appeal to me) Fender Competition Chorus (not sure on the quality of that footswitch, though I hear it's true bypass? Has enough controls that I should be able to find what I'm after) and the T-Rex ToneBug. (a bit more expensive, not true bypass, includes a flanger?)

Ill take a look at the joyo stuff, ive not given them any though because of the price. do you find any drop in volume when pedal is engaged and do you notice it change your sound alot,

my artec delay seems to add more top end when its on

Actually, the opposite, I find there is a slight boost when the joyo pedal is engaged. I've never really been a fan of the "lush" overpowering chorus sound but got the pedal because of the current band I'm in. I have been pleasantly surprised by it. I keep both knobs around 10 o clock and it adds a nice shimmering effect to my cleans.

Electro Harmonix Neo Clone - just within your budget, a Small Clone but more compact and so much variety in what it can do too

I've got the Boss Chorus Ensemble pedal as well, it works well enough, I do notice some extra buzz noise in the chain because of it though

the fuzz is fun, and the vintage phaser is good for some early Van Halen like tones

Isn't the Biyang Classic Chorus a CE-2 clone? They're cheap. I can't comment on the quality though as I've never seen one personally, let alone opened one up.

TC Corona Chorus is certainly the way I would go!

However, sticking in budget and offering some alternatives:
Mooer Chorus - It's small and simple
Marshall SV1 - I really like this pedal! Check out the youtube video of the guy whow uses two in his rig

Black Label Chorus is a pretty good chorus pedal. You may be able to find one used in your budget. MXR makes it.

The entire Spider line sounds like a trashcan getting humped by a fire truck while it's in the garbage disposal unit.

Basically...

in my experience, terrible. they sound pretty good, when they work. problem is they don't work very often.

(i haven't tried their chorus, i'm just going by their other pedals i have.)

toneriders are pretty nice. at one point you could get them for £50 new. they seem really hard to find now, though, for some reason.

mooer might be the thing. the joyo one's not bad, but i think the tonerider is nicer.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

i should add that i haven't tried the mooer chorus- just some of their other pedals. it's supposedly a glorified ce2, though. you can get them cheaper from china (when they have stock)...

Try Boss CE-5 Chorus Ensemble. I'm about to buy that chorus pedal, it's very good and has a lot of tones.

Boss CH-1 SUPER Chorus Pedal

Great in it's "below" $100-USD price range.

Actually TS, where abouts are you located?
If you're in the US, and enjoy Solid State cleans, you should be able to find a Peavey Stereo Chorus for anywhere from $100-$250.
It's a poor man's Jazz Chorus, which is the clean amp around 75% of metal bands use.


Pretty solid recommendation here but I think he is in Europe.

Currently, all of my amps are vintage Fender tube amps:
1954 5D6 4x10 Bassman
1960 6G4 2x10 Super Amp
1964 4x10 Super Reverb
1983 1x12 Concert II

I currently own the Digitech X-Series Multi-Chorus
and I experimented with the Boss Super Chorus.
Both are good for me, now.

My first set of pedals are in the $75-$150 range.
I have several EHX Harmonix pedals with two 12AX7 tubes installed
that are all near $200. Next go-round after I better understand
what works for me, I'll get into the $200(+) pedals. Gotta get my
chops up to make them sound better, anyway

But, the Peavey Stereo Chorus is on my "to check-out" list. Thank you.

He should still be able to find one though.
A bit more than in the US though.
They're going for around 200-300 pounds on ebay over there.

If you can find one, I'd grab it.
They're woefully underrated amps.
They're basically a cheap jazz chorus.
Used to be an abundance of them, but the market's dried up a bit for them, at least where I am.
