    Not sure, I never saw a Nux until a year or two after the Donner were out. My guess is they are the same company. They priced the Donner too low to start so relabeled the same thing at near twice the price?
    My early Donner says "tap tempo" on the face. Most don't.

    Check out EHX stereo pulsar or Dunlop TS-1 used, for stereo panning on a sub 100 budget from reputable companies. Both have a bit more continuous control over the waveshape than the Boss, and the Pulsar can get downright bizarre. Behringer did a PN-2 clone at some point, but they are discontinued and people are now asking way more for used than I’d be willing to pay for a plastic POS that once sold for $25.

    Oh, I want all analog , no digital. Are those Mooer Soul Shiver and E Lady both digital?

    The E-Lady (I have the Rowin copy) is analog, not a digital emulation.

    Do you like it? The Rowin isn't available but this VSN is probably the same thing, right?

    Looks like the same pedal, just different branding.

    I got a TC June-60 Chorus and I love it. 3 selections that are rhythmic in nature. I dig that. $40 new.

    I picked up a Line 6 M5 last year. It’s a great sampler platter of different effects. It models a vast array of stompboxes. It’s a buck fifty new, but that’s cheap for what you get.

    ^^ This ^^ for your rotary/vibe needs and it can do a lush chorus as well. They have become a not so secret weapon and are getting harder to find these days. I thought Digitech is no longer with us?

    Doesn’t Moore make one of the more ubiquitous tremolos out there?

    Ok, I ordered the Rowin Analog Chorus. It sounds like it'll do what I want. I like having that level knob (dry/wet mix) so it's not all or nothing. I think its the same thing as the Mooer Ensemble King Chorus. Which is based on the Boss CE2. Thanks everyone. Keep the ideas coming! I might do the flanger next...like in a few hours. :D

    For cheaper pedals I prefer Moen and Biyang. They are pretty well built and for me have lasted for years.

    If you are looking for a Phaser type thing, I really don't know if you can get better value than the MXR Phase 95. Its four different Phasers in one box for $99.99 new. Two versions of the Phase 90 and Phase 45 respectively. As far as modulations go it's probably one of the best on the market in the mini-pedal world. I like mine.

    You can't go wrong with an MXR Phase 90 or a EHX Small Stone. I like the larger enclosure Small Stones a little more then the smaller current ones after doing some shoutouts. The Boss TR-2 is a good alright Tremelo as well and if you want a good chorus, I much prefer the detune setting on my whammy pedal over anything. A free chorus pedal in addition to my whammy and harmony antics.

    80s music had it's shining moments, chorus and gated drums were not among them
