    Chorus pedal stereo or mono analog, classic 9V (it's a BOSS pedal so no worries).

    UTILIZATION

    Configuration is very simple, the name of the knobs acts manual so if you have the manual as you use it to light your barbecue! The desired sound is obtained fairly quickly so it's not bad. The Chorus pedal does not really useful if you use it in stereo with 2 amps so! But everyone does not have that luxury so no tip-top on that point.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The chorus is good, but does not break three legs to a duck instead. The sound is not warm or soft. In short, I am not conquered even if it does the job ... The only configuration where it really pleases me is when I pair with my old Big Muff......

    OVERALL OPINION

    I was offered it there a year and a half and frankly it serves me little, as soon as I need a little space on my pedalboard is usually the first pedal flying. I tried a few chorus before I get supply and it is not at all the best! But not the worst either (chorus Elypse is much worse, for example). Considering the price on occasion it's a good value for money to discover the chorus effect. With experience, if I were to buy a chorus I would not make that choice, I would prefer the MXR Micro Chorus.

    PS: For accuracy I have the old model of this pedal, so there was not yet the filter above.

    OVERALL OPINION

    very similar to the DOD Ice box I chronicled it has a bit more depth and a bit less bright. This relief is its strength. She can not disappoint, it became classic after elec TC course, but given the average price, there is no photo. On occasion, it is a real good opportunity. Bought cheap because the owner thought the PSU was taken down ... it was certainly its power supply. I am not perfect but it itches seen value for money.

    This is a chorus pedal.
    We have 4 knobs, which are the "level" (output), the "rate" (speed), the "depth" (depth of the chorus) and "filter", double knob ring (for adjusting bass and treble).
    Format Boss (125x70) robustness that we know, input and 2 outputs for stereo.
    9v power supply standard. Hatch for the battery, also in classic Boss.

    We are dealing with a digital pedal.

    UTILIZATION

    I use it, not in the effects loop of my amp, but between the latter (a JMP1), and my PowerAmp, using two outputs, one per channel of power, all in two 2x12 cabs .. . a treat!

    I said that I do not use that its almost clear.

    I said that I do not use that its almost clear.
    Being a bit "addict distortion", it allows me to work in his clear embellishing my sound ... however, all chorus I tested (its so clear!), Not brought me the clarity and this atmosphere, I find no coloration.

    SOUND QUALITY

    I found the crystal effect, very transparent, as long as it not abuse settings "extreme" where there as many chorus it becomes invasive in the bad sense.
    I repeat, I use it to embellish my chorus arpeggios clean, and it does it well, without spoiling anything at the amp and / or the guitar ... just that little hint! The lightness of the EFET chorus!

    If you want more distinctive and colorful, Harmonix Electro (mostly), and MXR await you!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for only 3 months!

    Before this, I tried the Boss CH1 (less accurate), the EHX Small Clone (typed while being too warm, but not to my taste), the Jacques Meistersinger at (very clean, crystal .. . my favorite!), and some multi fX ...

    I stupidly sold my Meitersinger to try other chorus, while I loved this pedal! I just found a bit of it in this CE5! A specific effect, not intrusive, very addictive because of its lightness.

    For fifty € OCCAZ it worth. You can even buy to test the comfort of your home and sell it if it does not suit you.

    About me, the QPR is very good. The "Jacques" was 2X more expensive for info!

    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.

    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!

    What are the effects, or types of effects available?
    Chorus only

    What technology is used? (Analog, digital, tube ...)
    Analog

    Are they edited? Via an editor for Mac / PC?
    Not

    What is the connection? (Audio / MIDI)

    Very simple to take control as almost all Boss pedals, I found very quickly setting that suits me.

    No need for manual, just come to me and very quickly. It can range from something very discreet chorus super psyche without problem! Fairly close to the EC-2 that I wanted to pay me at first but is much more expensive because more vintage!

    No need for manual, just come to me and very quickly. It can range from something very discreet chorus super psyche without problem! Fairly close to the
    EC-2 that I wanted to pay me at first but is much more expensive because more vintage!

    But ultimately, there are two differences with the EC-2 that may be of interest:
    - A button E.LEVEL to assay the level of the chorus
    - Stereo output

    SOUND QUALITY

    Mine is an analog so I do not know if there's a difference with the digital version but anyway, I love the sound of it. Both the present without cover and change the texture of my guitar with a sound as I said quite close to the EC-2 (considered by many one of the best chorus ever produced!)

    It quickly becomes indispensable to a clear sound! Of distortion, very good too, I use it mainly on the solos, this is after everyone to see!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had two months, and without hesitation he occupies a special place in my pedalboard!

    I tried a number of models before this one from chorus built into the amp to guitar multi-effects and this is no problem that I prefer to date.

    The price / quality ratio is excellent. Sometimes they pay a little expensive because it begins to be considered vintage but not yet as well as its big brother the EC-2 which sometimes reached amazing prices!

    Anyway, it's worth the money and I do it again this choice without hesitation.

    Digital Chorus pedal, Boss standard format.
    Controls Level, Rate, Depth and a classic double handy knob Filter, which removes the demand for high frequencies and severe to sculpt his sound a bit deeper.
    In one input, two stereo outputs!
    Powered by 9 V battery or AC adapter standard.
    As usual with Boss, it's instinctive, practical, strong, I have not had one problem with this pedal.

    UTILIZATION

    The configuration is general, we understand very quickly what each knob. Editing sounds is easy as long as we spend time juggling Rate and Depth!

    I've never been convinced of the great tone filter, which could act a little more significantly on the report. This is a personal reproach, very small.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Boss with a reputation for neutrality with respect pedals: It is true here, with still a very significant heat, almost unheard of for my taste on the other Boss current model, the CH1. We can get good sounds vintage chorus or 80's very realistic. In big fan of Police, I found myself.
    I could test it in stereo, it's beautiful, a little careful though to review its settings because they do not act the same way in stereo (doubling time lag of the effect!).
    It can calibrate almost everywhere because of its versatility, it is still enjoyable because of its heat.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I used it for over a year was my first chorus. I just tried the Ch1, that I do not always so.
    Its price / quality ratio is concrete, I could also note that some pros use it in their rig. This choice I would do in similar circumstances. I sold it, it is now the happiness of a pal guitarist. I have since acquired a Jacques Meistersinger, but excellent mono: can I ever regret the beauty of a stereo chorus ...

    I recommend it without hesitation!
