On the intro to Duran Duran's "Come Undone" what is that awesome swirliness? is it a chorus or flange? On my Digitech RP350 I can get a close enough sound using the Boss CE-1 modeling, or the EHX flanger modeling. If I remember right, wasn't the Boss CE-1 used fairly heavily back in the 80's? I really like the type of effects used by 80's pop bands.

also after thinking it over, as deliciously thick a song as "come undone" is, I don't know if Id want it that thick EVERY SONG. It'd get dizzying after a while. I play mostly classic rock (60's and 70's), 80's pop-rock (i.e. Duran Duran, David Bowie, Simple Minds, etc.), folk, and a bit of jazz. My tone is a rounded, subdued, mellow type of sound. Sort of like an electric that thinks its a nylon-string. Kind of hard to describe. Anyway what chorus do you think would be right for me, I have the Digitech hardwire chorus, but it adds quite a bit of brightness and there's no tone knob to correct it.

I'm just going off what the RP350 models. I like the CE-1 and Multi-Voice chorus models, Tube Screamer and DOD 250 for bluesy lead, and the ProCo Rat and MXR distortion for chording. Now of course the models aren't that faithful, but what brands should I be looking at?

I'm at work so I can't check to make sure but I'd bet the "flerb" setting on an ehx holy grail would nail that effect.

Sounds like some reverb & flange.

BTW- like your taste in '80s music.

Edit: yeah, the Holy Grail's flerb- flanging reverb- could do it. One more reason for me to buy a EHX Epitome.

I own 2 chorus pedals. The Line6 ToneCore Space Chorus is good. The Visual Sound H20 is better. My H2O is the V2 (second) version of it, now discontinued. However, the V3 H20 is currently in stores now.

On the overdrive front, I own a couple of those, as well. One is the Visual
Sound Jekyll & Hyde, which combines TS-style OD with distortion. VS also makes the similarly lauded Route 66 (OD/Compression). Their discontinued Double Trouble combined the ODs of the J&H and the Route 66. Finally, their VS-XO is analogous to the new H20 in that it takes the foundation of an older pedal- here, the Double Trouble- and improved it and re-released it.

My T. Rex MAB overdrive is a good, pure OD with a lot of flexibility to it.

My Red Witch Famulus is, like the Jekyll & Hyde, a OD/Distortion pedal. But it has a few tones of its own that set it apart.
