    I had quite a job finding a flanger I liked tried all manner of things, ended up with the strymon orbit never spent that much on a pedal before but apart from being a really great flanger it does a pretty decent choruslike sound too.

    I generally dislike chorus (probably due to the proliferation of the effect in the era when I started playing), but when forced to use the effect, I use the slow setting on my Boss RT20.

    I'll be watching this thread, though, because I want suggestions for a flanger, too...

    Well, I ordered an MXR Analog Chorus on Reverb from Crazy Dave's. I've used Crazy Dave in the past and found the best price.

    An ancient Boss BF-2 Flanger. Manual and Regen set fully counter clockwise, Depth and Rate straight up at noon. Very chorus-y without being too chorus-y.

    No use for a flanger, personally,

    Gave up my 4-knob chorus pedal for this one.

    My first pedal was a Boss DS-1. Good enough for Cobain’s distortion, good enough for me. When I went to buy my second pedal, a chorus, that previous philosophy/mantra and my happiness with the DS-1 lead me into the store convinced I’d but the Electro-Harmonix Small Clone. I played on the pedal in the store and the owner came and talked to me and asked if I liked Nirvana (as if me starting my 17th run at Come As You Are wasn’t a hint).

    We talked about how Cobain used the Small Clone, Chrous, and eventually he asked what other bands I liked where I had heard watery guitar parts. I could only think of The Cure. He grabbed a Boss CH-1 and we ABed them. The guy was super sweet and never tried to outright sell to me, he just wanted me to get the most out of my purchase.

    Point: Still have AND use that CH-1 (my DS-1 for that matter too). He even gave me a discount as the CH-1 was a tad more expensive.

    The CH-1 can go full listen to music under water sounds from 80’s goth and Nirvana, to some of the most subtle sweet tones that barely differ from a kiss of reverb. I’ve never looked back or been unhappy.

    I'm still on honeymoon with the Donner Ultimate Delay, but (among many other things) it does a nice modulated delay that is pretty much everything I'd want from a chorus pedal but with more control over the dry signal mix. I have a CH-1 that frankly I haven't used in years, but the Donner got me intrigued with chorus again :)

    Boss CE-2w and a mini Phase 95 are the only two modulation pedals for me!

    My old DOD FX-60 Stereo Chorus. The poormans CE-2.

    Not used a lot, but still there. Run it stereo at home sometimes. Too much hassle live anymore.

    Only at a venue a couple hours, maybe a little more now days. Doesn't make sense. The days of a sitdown gig are long gone. At least in my world.

    Probably use the Small Stone more often, especially for the Waylon stuff.

    I've had a Boss CE-5 for a long time. It's really nice if you don't want really deep modulation. There are lot of subtle tweaks at hand.

    CH-1

    It is easy to find a frequency for the chorus sound that fits in with guitar sound and then easy to tweak when your ear wants a different chorus sound.

    Right now a Walrus Julia for the vibrato and a 80s Boss BF-2 flanger for a flangey chorus. Don’t really use flange and chorus though, so this might be short lived.

    I play around with my old Digitech/DOD PDS-1700 Chorus/Flanger. Not great, but a cool toy to play with.

    BOSS Super Chorus. I don't use much of it.

    I still use my 20/20 from 87', comb filter, flange, chorus, doubling, slapback, 2 sec mod delay and looping. It was a shining star of that era.

    I use a Boss CE-2 chorus, very light mix, just enough to fatten things up a small amount.

    I would say Zoom ms 70 cdr, there are many inside to choose from , you spend as much as a single pedal , same space on your pedalboard but you can use it for many other things if you want.

    I use an old Boss BF-2 for vibrato- and chorus-like sounds. Flangers do chorus that I like better than chorus pedals. My BF-2 is noisy, but I distract the crowd from the noise by playing badly.
