    Just a little PSA of sorts. If anyone is looking for a good chorus pedal, I really love and recommend the Red Witch Medusa chorus pedal.
    Just talked about it on my guitar blog (http://guitarsampspedals.wordpress.com) and was wondering what your favourite chorus pedals are.

    Medusa - three pedals in one, chorus, trem and chorus/trem, and it's a really versatile pedal with a lush chorus sound. The tremolo stands up on it's own as a tremolo.

    Anyway, over to you, what chorus pedals do you like?

    Had a nice pale purple Ibanez chorus years ago. Gave it to a cousin. I remember it as being very nice.

    My MXR analog chorus is versatile now.

    I heard nothing but great things about the Ibanez chorus. Love the MXR one, spent a lot of time with the big yellow stereo chorus, beast of a pedal.

    I haven't done much comparing but on the strength of my other TC pedals, I got a TC Corona and it's delivered. I've gone from a chorus hater to using it all the time, albeit for a dark, subtle, chorus.

    I'm going to have to get a corona chorus one day, they haven't come down in price, even second hand so I'll have to wait it out.
    I think a nice subtle bit of chorus just adds a little wetness to a clean sound that softens the sound and makes it more palatable.
    Also BigDaddy have I seen you on the JGF? (Not a stalker, honest :))

    I've been though all the Boss Chorus pedals, analog and digital (save for CE-1) and I much prefer the DC-2 Dimension C. They got it so right with this one. And no faffing around with knobs - just press a button and it's there; rich, spacey and totally gorgeous. Try it in stereo for an orgy of chorus chorusness. Totally cool.

    Working on a guitarpcb mini-me chorus ATM ... Really hoping it works as advertised and isn't plagued with clock noise

    I like the Moog Mf108 Clusterflux.

    It does Chorus, Flange, Vibrato, Drive.

    I've got two chorus pedals on my board. A boss ce2 for more "traditional" sounds,
    and a jam pedals waterfall for more extreme bendy stuff. Both recommended.

    I have a Providence Adamine ADC-4 and really love it! Had a TC Electronic before and it was nice too. I like the ADC-4 a bit better.

    DC-2 is the absolute trick if you can spring for one. I recently retired my DC-3 for a CH-1. The CH-1 for subtle always-on modulation with all knobs at 12:00.
    For stereo, I still like my old TC Electronics stereo chorus/flanger.

    I'd be willing to try one with tap tempo as long as it also has stereo outs. The Moog looks cool.

    I have a couple chorus pedals, but the only thing I really use most of the time is my PS-6 on detune when I want a chorus sound!

    Another Small Clone fan here. I'll admit I bought it for the "Come As You Are" tone. I also really like the 3-voice chorus in the Line6 M13. I prefer a more blatant effect. ;)

    I've also heard good things about the TC Corona and the Hardwire CR7(?). Both good bang-for-buck, for all I've heard.
