Fulltone Choralflange?

Max Fulltone Choralflange?
I've seen some rave reviews on this new pedal from Fulltone and am especially interested in "Leslie" effect.  
Does anyone out there tried this pedal? Your comments?

I've played with this pedal a little; the thing works fine, sounds great, what can you expect? Mike Fuller builds great stuff. I haven't bought the device *so far*, although I think about it now and again. The chorus and flange effects both sound great; there is a "wide" and "narrow" adjustment that's really cool, and you can just get a wide variety of chorus and flange speeds and sounds out of it. I have another chorus I really like, not as controllable and variable, but *the* chorus sound I like. And although the flange is great on the Fulltone there's just that something special about the MXR or the Electric Mistress, so that those are the two real stand-out flange units. The Fulltone is great, but it didn't quite match the other two at their best. To be honest, I only fiddled with it for fifteen minutes or so, and I've heard another person or two do the same, so it's not like taking one home and spending a lot of time with it. The bottom line is that it's a very, very nice sounding unit, but it costs a lot of money for a pedal (at least to a musician with three children!). OTOH, I may get one anyway, it really does sound very good. It's just that I already have a chorus I like a lot, and the MXR flanger really has "the sound" and is a *lot* less expensive.  
Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

So please don't keep us in suspense! What chorus do you like?

Voodoo Labs. I really can't compare it directly with the "clone of CE-1" claim, I never used a CE-1, but it sounds great. It's a little noisy, though; less noisy in an fx loop than before the amp.
