Depends on what you want, but my recommendations would be the Retro-Sonic Chorus, the Providence Anadime Chorus, and the Analogman Chorus...

The only thing I can think of that you haven't mentioned yet is the EHX Small Stone.

The third reply mentions the small stone, fourth reply says that is a phaser. Small clone is the chorus, and a good one at that.

Two to consider that havent been mentioned:

Analogman mini chorus - expensive at 200 but these sound great according to youtube videos - great thing about these pedals is that the resell value is very good - you will loose only shipping costs if you decide to sell:

Another good one is the TRex Twister - nice thing about this is you get a flanger and chorus - if you are patient can pick one up cheap on that auction site...

Eventide modfactor is also a solid choice - altho expensive at 220+ but as a benefit you get alot of other effects, but it doesn't meet your requirements for power.

Let us know what you get and how it turns out.

I use the T.C. Electronics chorus/flanger great sound chorus, easy to use, and no need for a power adapter, has it's own power supply. I have two of these.

Vigo1999 wrote:Ibanez SC10, they were made by Maxxon (at least the first runs).

woinderfull chorus, can go from subtle to Atlantic Ocean chorus. no volume drop (although they can add a little bright tone to the sound).

they can be found for 30-50 bucks at the bay . . . cost peanuts and you'll be suprised.


that or the CS505 made by Maxxon. mxr type footprint. no volume drop also and wonderfull tone (somewhat warmer than the sc10).

actually i think their circuit boards are really alike.
+1 on the SC10! My Ibanez SC10 has been with me since I started playing seriously. Only pedal I haven't even considered selling. Sounds great, reliable and a bit of a sleeper price wise. Grab one if you can. Very underrated.

TC Corona Chorus; it can be customized to your liking with the Tone Print app. The other cool thing is, you also get several other modulation effects; and you can download or "beam" artist patches straight to your pedal. It sounds every bit as good as their Stereo Chorus Flanger, which has been THE chorus of choice for top session cats for the last 30 years.

I bought the Seymour Duncan Vapor Trail Delay and it has a beautiful and unique chorus effect when on it's shortest settings with no loss in volume. The delay sounds amazing too.

I've been trying new tones via "tone print" with my tc electronic Corona chorus. What a great feature tone print is. Just choose a type via the phone app and presto, a completely new chorus.

If you only need chorus for a light effect, not your main sound or to add texture here and there then the little Sonicake analogue cloud chorus is great. Don't let the low price fool you, this thing sounds mint for the money. Why go crazy on boutique pedals if it's just something you'll use here and there, the percentage improvement isn't worth the cash IMO.

A Chorus is an effect that is basically a short delay (not as short as a flanger but also not as long as a delay). This means that you can Chorus effects not only from pedals that say "Chorus" on the label but also from Flangers and Delays. My Boss BF-2 (Flanger) can do Chorus sounds if I set the regen control low and also the rate setting to a longer delay time. My Diamond Quantum Leap (primarily a Delay) has a Chorus function on it, too but I prefer the modulation on the delay for that.
