Looking for that lush 3-D sound of a Chorus Pedal? Here are the best high-end, mid-priced and budget models.

One of the most popular guitar effects of all time, chorus is often used to fatten-up the sound and give it more of a “3-D” feel. Some of the most popular guitar tones of all time have involved smart use of Chorus (reference just about any song by the Police, Andy Summers really knew how to use Chorus wisely). Even in the budget arena, thick and creamy sounds can be generated when using a chorus pedal in true stereo.  Below is a list of the most popular guitar chorus effects pedals separated by price range.
