    I use a CE-2 for jangly chorus and a BF-2 (with the Manual turned all the way down and Regen at 9 o’clock) for giant, clanging, “ Walking On The Moon” chorus. I don’t believe in subtle, so I go pretty heavy on the CE-2 mix control. Rate is low to avoid much obvious pitch bending. It gives me a lot of “size” without much “warble”.

    I used to have an old Ibanez Bi-Mode chorus that I loved. It had two wiggly signals instead of just one, and you could control each one independently, so instead of just going "wow wow wow wow" like most choruses, it could go "wooooowwww wowow wooooowwww wowow wooooowwww." The advantages are obvious. Unfortunately it got stolen out of my car one night, and I replaced it with an EHX Neo Clone. One knob, one switch, goes from 80s to seasick. I like it fine.

    I use the "detune" feature in the pitch shift section of my Nova System. Works awesome.

    I like a subtle, dark chorus, and I get that from the TC Corona: turn the tone knob down. I like it as a "only notice it when you turn it off" effect, rather than '80s chorus.

    Ive got a Strymon Mobius. A little pricy but it does sooo many things. Plus it’s midi switchable.

    I use an EHX Small Clone. Since i got it, it has been the only pedal that never has never been replaced in my chain.

    I use a Source Audio Orbital Modulator for chorus, flange, and phase. Two presets, unlimited parameter tweaking, and on-board trem can run together with any of the other effects. Great tones, plays well with my other pedals. Lots of bases covered for $169 less discounts.

    I had the Analog Chorus and loved it til I also noticed it took away the high end presence. Up to that point, I hadn’t noticed it but had just swapped out some pedals/re-arranged the order and think the new combination didn’t work well with the MXR. I really liked the pedal but couldn’t take the tone suck. I then bought a CE-2w but found it completely took over my sound with no way to dial it back. So, that went back. I then found a used CH-1 at GC for $50 and it has been on my board ever since. Sounds great. Has a level knob so I can crank it or make it sound barely on. I tend to prefer a light chorus sound so have it dialed in for that. But, with a slight turn of the level knob, can get thicker Pretenders chorus. Am very happy with it!

    Got an original CE2 that sees action...or the analog chorus in my UE405 (killer!)

    Way cool pedal, DOD565a chorus, Jurassic era thing needing 18volts...

    Curious as to whatever happened to the Dyno My Piano/Tri Stereo sounds. Those are so corpulent, Rich, that nothing else gets close...that stuff is in Keeley’s. pedal now

    I just ordered a Digitech Nautila. Can't wait to put it on my board.

    Chorus/Flanger combo with up to 8 voices for chorus and 4 voices for flanger. Different wave forms and it has a mix knob as well. One of the problems I have with a lot of the flankers and choruses is that they are 100% effect. That makes it hard to be subtle.

    Had a lot over the years. I'm very happy with the Biyang CH-8. Same chip as Boss CE-2:

    I don't use either one often, but I love my Ibanez CS9 and FL9.

    For chorus, one of these. 18V of wobbly chorus goodness. I rarely use it these days, but when I do, it reminds just how fine it is, and just how much chorus was overused.

    I don't own a flanger.

    I have one of these as well. Even though I have a boss multi effects switcher with built in Chorus I am keeping the MXR . . . you'll see: it's nice and well, analog sounding I guess.

    The CH-1 is hard to beat for me. Easy to dial in slower LFO, which I prefer. It kicked off my Dimension D. The LFO is much faster on the 'D'. I also have a Dimension C (a classic!) and a Neunaber Slate. They all cover me well for modulation, except I sold the Dimension D.
