Chorus (guitarpedals) for pads etc

Hello there

I have always been a fan of that vibe of the Juno (6, 60 and 106) chorus polysounds.
Several times I have thought about getting a Juno just for that reason. But then Again I have a couple of synths that should make a fine base for pads. Then I just need the Chorus.
I have read about chorusunits that comes close to the one found in the Junos. Those can be quite expensive, and then Again I don't necessarily need a Juno emulation.
All I need is a great chorusunit, that might make my feet rise from the ground and perhaps put me on a light soft cloud.
I normally use guitarpedals, as they are easy to put on top of a synth.
Perhaps Boss can offer something good?

Get a behringer cc-300, it will probably be all you need, and likely for less than $50

Vintage and very affordable (I paid about 30 Euros for mine - German Ebay):

Ibanez CCL Dual Chorus. A wonderful and versatile stompbox (I use mine for the synths, not in my guitar setup).

I have the Boss CE-2--very nice pedal but did not play well, impedance-wise, with my Prophet 600. Can't remember how it fared (or if I tried it) with my other synths. With a ReAmp, however, it's very nice (but something to bear in mind if this is for live use and you don't want to have to bother with impedance matching devices in such a scenario).

The E-H Small Stone (and its offspring) has a proud pedigree for such uses and is much beloved.

I use a boss CEB2 Bass Chorus with a K2000r,as an Insert with Mix d, Used it a few times with a DX7 seemed to work good.
My Key board player has the same Impedance issue with his Prophet 600, we actually ran his Prophet 600. thru a Peavey Mega Bass amp I had , the mega had a built in chorus that was fairly nice sound had cutoff feq at 200k , If I remember correctly.
