    My personal favorite is the Morley Crystal Chorus. Worth a try if you ever find one.

    Boss CEB's have always been good to me.

    Yes, I tried the bi-comp. It squished my active bass sound too much for my liking.
    I'm waiting for him to build me a bass friendly version of the King Of Tone...
     
  8. I've been using my BF2 at a low setting as my chorus.

    I really dig my Fulltone Choralflange.
     
  10. Boss ceb3 good for the money but you do need to max it out to get alot of chorus, more subtle than in your face obvious.

    Designed for the bass so bass tone still good.

    Another vote for the Analogman Clone Chorus. Nice simple operation, huge range of sounds, not a single bad thing I can say about it.

    I'd get it with the thin/normal/deep toggle switch though.

    As previously stated: the Clone Chorus rules with the deep mod.

    DLS is pretty great. Best one I've heard. (I have the chorus/vib.)

    Boy, that's what I'd call a "range of opinion"!

    I've tried the EBS chorus, and didn't like it very much.

    I'm looking for an analog chorus, that creates the rich lush deep bass swirl that's perfect for fretless, a la Jaco.

    Does the Clone Chorus qualify?

    It certainly sounds lush on my fretted. Still trying to find my first fretless, but I'll let you know how it sounds when I do...

    In my opinion yes. I've tried the EBS, Fulltone, Boss, Analogman, TC Electronics.

    IMO the TC sounded a bit sterile. The Boss is perfectly good for the money.
    While there was nothing wrong with the EBS, I just didn't love it. The Choralflange is great, I loved the sound but I wanted a more K.I.S.S. pedal - hence the clone chorus!
