    Light blue in the standard Boss stompbox case. Four knobs: effect level, low filter, rate and depth. One input; mono or stereo out for spreading the chorus effect between two amps or two channels of the PA or recording console. 1 9V battery or optional AC Adapter. I've been playing bass professionally for 45 years.

    Purchased in 2005 from Musiciansfriend.com I wanted a chorus effect for some songs. Paid $69 + shipping

    It's easy to use: find the rate and depth you want, adjust the low pass filter for max bottom, dial in the mix of straight bass and chorus and you're all set. I also like the fact that the battery can be replaced by lifting the on/off pad rather than unscrewing four......

I also like the fact that the battery can be replaced by lifting the on/off pad rather than unscrewing four screws on the bottom. I also like having a wide on/off pad rather than a single toggle.

    This is an older chorus unit, and I think technology makes today's bass choruses better sounding. I find the stereo effect rather useless live, but nice in recording.

    Well-built of heavy gauge aluminum, as are all Bodd pedals.

    For not much money, the Boss CEB-3 Bass Chorus offers a decent sounding effects for bass that can be useful on solos or atmospheric support line.

    Boss CEB-3 Bass ChorusPublished on 08/17/04 at 15:00
    Purchased 5000 Yen ($65Aud) used from Ishibashi music Akihabara Tokyo Japan
    Purchased to replace a Boss Bass Chorus CE-2B misplaced when moving

    produces a smooth chorus sound tailored for bass.
    usable, almost essential, sound
    simple rugged and reliable.

    When used with a compressor it produces that dreamy sound so loved by later New Wave bands like Duran Duran, Japan ABC use it with a fretless bass and you will find yourself writing songs to go fitt the sound think Pino Paladino on Paul Young's version of "Were Ever I lay My Hat" and this will get his sound down perfect.

    Sound wise not quite as good as my old CE-2B but better than the chorus in my ME 50B bass multi effects unit.

    Sound wise not quite as good as my old CE-2B but better than the chorus in my ME 50B bass multi effects unit.

    I'm not happy with the newer rounded off knobs they use. the older CE-B has only 3 larger knobs set out in a triangle arangment that alow you to tweak on the fly vey easly. The small 4 knobs in a row (they have added a "Low Filter" knob that I just set and forget) are fiddly at best.

    like most Boss pedals almost bullet proof

    along with a good compression/sustainer pedal the CEB-3 (or the older brother the CE-2B) is THE essential bass pedal for players of softer rock and jazz.

    buy it NOW! (Unless you can find a CE-2B then hock your second favourite bass to buy that instead)

    Sound wise it's 5 out of 5 but I'll rate it at 4 because I think the small fiddly knobs are a step backwards.

    Mono is a chorus or Stro analog pedals.
    Like all Boss pedals, it will not break the head, it is little prs Designed and indestructible.

    It's quite easy, as always with Boss, I go out without problem without manual.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 6 months now, bought used 50.
    I love the chorus it provides standard and cold compared to the chorus of my Cube-100. I recommend trying nanmoins opportunity for the pedals, as in nine dpense may ultimately be a little rise to the usefulness General for the effect .
    But 50, I Rasht directly. Sre value, without being the best chorus of the market.

    The effects are good trs. It goes from the small chorus to hide the approximate correctness of acute when I play fretless in flanger standard throughout the run.

    I use it for several months. The pedals seem sturdy, it is not plastic. J'apprcie can change the battery without the need for a screwdriver (EBS would do well to take the example above). The switch seems sturdy but the pots are a little weak people I find (default inhrent all boss pedals).

    The PDAL is less than MODELS CHRE home Ashdown and EBS for a diffrence its quite small, the only diffrence as the lack of true bypass. Essential accessory any self-respecting fretless, I would do without this choice hsiter.

    rate (a bit like a kind of "speed of sound")
    depth (gre depth background may suggest a one lgre "rverb")

    So there are a lot of options, ranging from chorus to chorus soft tranquillou psychdlique archi bizare.

    SOUND QUALITY

    I am satisfied with the effect trs, trs they are effective and sufficiently ralistes my taste.
    I use it with Ibanez SR505 BM GIO and rumble and a 100 watt 15 "from fender.
    My favorite is the chorus rglage modern book but with the depth that varies from 12 14h.
    There is nothing I dtest on this.
    Being able to connect the chorus is a stro more fun, but I use my effects in a logical and pdalboard APRS chorus I put my amp in case of no direct and therefore I use the chorus in mono. I tried two amps in Stereo is convincing trs, trs cool, but must have two amps is not very practical, unless you have a dual-channel and two speakers.
    As part of a pdalboard Stereo mode is not anything unless you have two boxes of live but I found a cheap and prtentieux.
    The stro I do not mind the recording studio if you are ultra picky.
    Whereas the need as an option any more.

    OVERALL OPINION

    It's been a year and a half that I use my CEB3, I am satisfied with trs, trs RULES sound is good there is neither too much nor too little rglages, just 4 knobs .
    Before I had the chorus of my korg pdalier AX10B between the two is the day and night!
    Since I have an eye on jett chorus ebs listening to excerpts from their site, but my 3 ceb suits me perfectly and has more than rglages So here I keep it.
    It cost me 94 euros in stores, has its price is still on and that was fine, but it is the your exact trssrieux.
    Exprience with this choice I would do without hsiter, this small chorus, Althoughthe probably not the best, is of the same place in the top of the table. And above all, and that's the essence, it allowed me to find my sound me by allowing me to TOFER, to make further, the bottom of the pieces I play.

  • Very good pedal

    Chorus pedal quality treated with multiple settings.

    UTILIZATION

    The four knobs provide the means to find the sound we have in mind to spend some time. The effect is to adjust to each scale, rendering varies with the site.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Excellent quality

    OVERALL OPINION

    Very good indeed.
    The only concern at my level: It makes it great when the bass is alone. As a group, the effect is almost inaudible, unless you play a bass solo. In order to simplify and streamline my pedalboard, I ended up putting it in the closet.
    This does not detract from the qualities of this pedal. ...

    Bass chorus pedal analog. An input jack and two jack outputs for stereo use.

    UTILIZATION

    General configuration simple: four knobs (too much for me ..)
    Not very comfortable with the controls and knobs in general, I have relied to some examples given by the manual, then modified it according to what I was looking for. Beyond these few examples, the manual has not much use .. Too thick to the loo, too late to prop up a wobbly table ..

    SOUND QUALITY

    The effect is efficient and reacts very well in races of knobs: it is not all-or-nothing "like on some pedals.
    I used it with a Yamaha TRB4 and several other pedals (compressor, distortion, wah and delay ..).

    I used it with a Yamaha TRB4 and several other pedals (compressor, distortion, wah and delay ..).
    The sound is very clean and very loyal. It adds an extra dimension to the sound of the bass. For my part, I used it for bass lines and slow enough "air" for solos, slap in (synthbass side gives a very funky) and especially coupled with distortion and a wah to get a sound close to vintage synth.
    For cons, the sound is very distinctive 80's. This is not a bad point, but I do not like. I find it too smooth .. I sold to buy a Danelectro DC-1 Cool Cat, more alive ..

    OVERALL OPINION

    I used it a few months, but I like his boss does not definitely .. It was my first chorus for bass. But now my Danelectro suits me perfectly.

    € 50 for an effects pedal, I do not shock: it is not out of money as some brands and not the pedal Bontempi at 15 € with the quality that goes with the price.

    With experience, I do not do it again this election. It's a good pedal, but I do not like his 80's typed .. But it's relative. I recommend, but try (comparing with other chorus) before purchasing: we like it or not ..

  • Solid and Durable

    Boss CEB-3 Bass ChorusPublished on 03/20/11 at 18:33
    I had this hooked to my bass rig a few years ago and it never failed me. It is a solid bass chorus pedal that doesn't add any distortion or overdrive to the bass tone but a subtle liquid modulation that beefs up the spectrum of the tone. I was unsure at first when presented this little pedal, but to my surprise it quickly became a staple of my personal tone. The lay out as follows...

    - Low filter lets lowest frequencies through unaffected
    - Controls for level, low filter, rate, and depth
    - LEDs show status of controls
    - One touch on/off switch

    UTILIZATION

    Pretty easy pedal to dial in. It all depends on how much or how less of a chorus effect you need or want in your signal. Not a true......

    - Low filter lets lowest frequencies through unaffected
    - Controls for level, low filter, rate, and depth
    - LEDs show status of controls
    - One touch on/off switch

    UTILIZATION

    Pretty easy pedal to dial in. It all depends on how much or how less of a chorus effect you need or want in your signal. Not a true bypass pedal so it will be locking up your tone at all times. You can easily send it off to someone to get modified for true bypass if desired. I just kept it on at all times and used it in a gentle way as to not cramp my tone or dominate the signal.

    There is only four knobs and like all Boss boxes it is pretty self explanatory. The more you increase the low filter and depth the more that the pedal is going to be in your mix. Those two controls really determine how you are going to sound when using this device. I generally ran everything around noonish give or take to achieve my tone.

    You can also run this pedal in stereo to create a sort of synth sound that sound very huge. The pedal in general is very warm and smooth sounding and when you are able to run it in stereo the range just opens completely up.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The sound is amazing! I find that the more this pedal is engaged the more I want to play the bass. The lush chorus modulation provides a depth that is very inspiring to play with. Keep the low filter down and listen how the pedal creates a old bass synth sound familiar to 70's style radio and television broadcasts. Another cool way to run this pedal is to have the depth to around 5:00, the rate around 12;00 , and the filter all the way up....you'll get a very usable high frequency bass chorus that sounds creamy but retains your original bass notes in tact.

    I ran this with a Raven Labs preamp into a a QSC with a Warick bass 4 string. I had quite a cheap setup but I found that this pedal sounded like I had a lot more invested than I really did. I also was using a Trace Elliot 4x10 cab. It was an easy setup for a simple bass rig, but the rig sounded huge. Couple this pedal with a little overdrive from your bass amp or another pedal and you have got one thick sounding tone.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Great pedal for bass expansion. I have not tried it for guitar as I already own many chorus pedals for guitar. The thing I like least about it was probably the true bypass thing. I wish Boss would step up the deal and make their items with this feature. I would pay a little extra to have it standard true bypass then have somebody do it for me.

    It is a very inexpensive item at around $90 and you can probably pick one up for half that on the used market. If it ever got lost or stolen I would probably pick up another unit. It gives a huge sound to a flat sounding bass rig. If chorus isn't your thing then I would try a Boss bass OD pedal to get little effect to your bass rig. A flat sounding bass rig is boring.

    I would recommend any bass player at least try this pedal. You may not like it but at least give it a shot in a band mix too.
