MGR/Tim Heath's review"Boss CE-5 Chorus Ensemble."

Boss CE-5 Chorus Ensemble
Been after one of these for ages, as i needed a decent chorus effects unit. I bought mine for the reduced price of £63.00 from Nevada Music in Plymouth UK.

Whats great about this unit is that you can achieve virtually any chorus effect going, from the watery "Come As You Are" to the crazy chorus effect as used on "Radio Friendly Unit Shifter"-two chorus fuelled Nirvana classics! The best thing with this tool is that you can spend hours tweaking the pots to get some really weird chorus effects, and there is a small booklet provided that gives you some sample settings, that you can use as a basis for your experimentation. This unit works well with and without distortion effects.

Cant find any faults with this unit.

Construction is typical of Boss as you would always expect from certainly one of the best effects producers in the music business. All boss stomp boxes are well constructed, dont break easily, they look cool and last for years-thats quality for you!

This CE-5 is certainly an up-grade on the Super Chrous, and its deffinately better. Whatever you play this unit should do the job for you, and at reasonable price. Sure there are Chorus effects like the Electro Harmonix Sterio Poly Chorus, which really does take some beating, but the CE-5 can do most of the things it can do just as well. I would not want to be without a decent Ice Box and i would recommend the Boss CE-5 any day. Its a great little unit that takes some beating.

MGR/Anonymous's review"Boss CE-5 Chorus Ensemble"

Boss CE-5 Chorus Ensemble
I paided 90 bucks for it. This pedal is worth every penny!

It is incredibly easy tp adjust, you can get any sound you want with it. It is very deep which is what i like. Its better than the CH-1 Super Chorus. Its more powerful and has a high and low EQ. You have to get this pedal. I cant play without it. I never turn it off, my distortion sounds amazing with it on. I have a Boss MT-2 Metal Zone which is awesome. I run my Crate GX-212 which sounds awesome to the CE-5 to the MT-2 to a Dunlop GCB-95 Original Cry Baby to my Epiphone Les Paul, the sound i get is amazing. You have tou by the CE-5. Its woth every penny, and dont forget to keep it on when you use distortion.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with it.

It is made with metal construction and of course it is boss quality which pretty much says it everything.

But it!

Boss CE-5 Chorus Ensemble
Boss has been pretty much the leader in guitar guitars for the last 30+ years. They have built decent sounding pedals, some winners and some losers, but most of there units have been very low priced. This has been a policy that has pretty much kept them on top of the pedal market heap for many years.

This pedal is a decently sounding and pretty inexpensively priced which allows many guitarist to try out this unit. The pedal have four control knobs that control the EQ of the pedal. Along with a sub control behind the filter knob that allows control of the highs and lows of the filter.

This pedal is great for subtle chorus all the way up to a lush almost flanger type tones. This pedal has a decent range of motion with the EQ but nothing that is like the Tc Electronics corona chorus. Comparable to that pedal this thing is clinker box that doesn't have the sweet warm that the Corona has.

I like using this pedal in a high gain amp for some good lead chorus lines that has a enough modulation to cover some of the open gaps in the electric guitars distortion range. This give s more sustain in the single notes lead lines and fills in a lot of the tonal gaps.


At new these pedals come in at around $99, which is a great price for a decent sounding pedal. I would argue that the best priced chorus pedal on the market is the little yellow one from MXR. That one is priced around $80 and it is tru bypass which this pedal is not. You can shell out another $30 and get the Corona from TC Electronics and have a much more usable and warm pedal.

Boss CE-5 Chorus Ensemble
Chorus home boss, digital stro, usual configuration of the brand.


As always with bosses use is very simple, so no worries on that ct l.


Lamentable, no personality and some either rglages, trslger or cross this pedal offers no time even one sound characteristic that justifies its presence on a pedal board, time of pedals shops and omnipresence of analog, it seems that bosses had totally lost his route.Avec pass into the chorus realization, the choice the digital could open new perspectives effects, it does not have this pedal is probably the worst chorus of the market. May sell 20 euros (30 or 40 do not go) if you are unscrupulous or so to make the re-housing.


See above.
