Due to the fact that I will play a bit more live in the near future, I suddenly have a need to get myself some more outboard FX gear. Fist on my list is a chorus.
So I was wondering what ideas you all here have. I want to get an analog chorus in the 100-200 euro/dollar price range. Any thoughts about what I should go for?

How about the Malekko Chorus? It's nice.

i've tried the following:

roland ce-300
boss ce-2
roland sdd-320 dimension d
boss dc-2 dimension c
boss dc-3 digital space d
fromel seraph deluxe

if you're just looking for a nice guitar input chorus and are not worried about sending your modular/line level signals through it, then all the boss pedals and the roland ce-300 mentioned above will work great. out of all those, i feel the dc-2 has the nicest sound (but i'm real sucker for the "dimension" effect), but the ce-300 does the standard stereo chorus thing really well, and is very versatile. the ce-2 sounds great but is mono only (if that is a concern).

if you want a studio effect that works better with modular and line levels, then i'd go for the dimension d or the fromel, but they are not cheap. they are both dimension type effects and don't really do the standard syrupy chorus sound.

the ce-300 sounds pretty good, but works really badly with line level signals. i think there's a mod you can do to change the input level and impedance to work better with line level.

i only own feel the need to own one chorus now:

+1 on the Fromel, I have the Deluxe and the only mono/smaller Seraph and they are the wolf's balls for Dimension style Chorus. The slow/shallow modes just sit there and almost but not quite swirl, it's mesmerizing.

yeah i like to feed it a ridiculously low speed sine or triangle lfo from my modular, set the depth high and just kick back. wink

The Fromel does look tasty indeed. But its a bit to pricy for my tiny wallet.
I will use mostly the chorus to run my analog synths through it.
What about the Electro Harmonix analog pedals? They seem ok for the price...

The best chorus pedals I know of are:
Ibanez CS-505 (stereo and very nice sounding no noise no volume drop)
Tokai TCH-1 (nice and no volume drop)
small stone (hiss and volume drop but a nice sound I've got the green sovtek)
All maxon chorusses are great sounding

I just have sold my Red Twister pedal which sounds great. I prefer to work with modules otherwise I'd have keep it.

nano clone will get you there (or maybe close) with one knob. great for saving pedalboard space.
