We're looking at mainline stereo chorus pedals (with 2 x 1/4" outs) and rounding them up into a single list. We'll also take submissions from readers, which are often a big part of our "master list" posts. This helps us to keep them up-to-date and always growing.
You can make recommendations of stereo chorus pedals - perhaps of the discontinued, boutique, or rare variety - in the comments section below.
If it fits the bill, we'll add it to the user-submitted section with a shout-out.
I'm sure we've missed a few.
Otherwise, we'll get right to the point, before answering the FAQ below the list. Here's our master list of chorus pedals with stereo outputs.

How do stereo chorus pedals work?
A stereo chorus pedal can be a pedal with either two inputs, two outputs, or both. It works like any other chorus pedal, except it gives you the option to send the signal in two different directions. Perhaps two different pedal chains or two different amplifiers.
Two inputs would allow for two different signals going into the pedal, usually multiple guitars or instruments.
Here's a diagram that has a pedal with two outputs.
It's a fairly simple structure and doesn't impact the rest of the pedal's functionality. You'll commonly find these pedals used in more complex rigs or sometimes to send a signal to a tuner constantly.
Here's another example from the user manual of the DigiTech Grunge distortion pedal. Obviously it's not a chorus pedal, but the same mechanisms apply.
Which stereo chorus pedals are the best?
Of this list, the Boss CE-2w and the MXR M234 chorus pedals probably give you the highest value for what you pay. They're both analog and decently affordable, meeting high tone quality standards and providing you with the stereo outs.
We could also make an argument for the Walrus Audio Julianna and the cheaper Boss CE-5 and CH-1.
Lots of good choices here.
Are stereo chorus pedals more expensive than non-stereo options?
The pricing has far more to do with the type of circuit (analog, digital, or hybrid), algorithmic complexity, and the amount of control in a pedal. Stereo connections are relatively cheap to produce in a pedal, therefore contributing little to the cost of the final product.
There are plenty of comparisons where you get a cheaper stereo chorus pedal and more expensive mono pedal with a single output.
The usefulness of a stereo chorus pedal will depend a lot on how your rig is set up. Don't buy one without giving some thought to how you would want to use the two inputs. Do you want to split up effects? Or maybe use two amps?
It's all up to you. Just make sure you have the details ironed out before you buy.
If you have stereo chorus pedals that you think should be added to this list, drop them in the comments section and we'll put them up.
We'll chat then.
