Top Customer Reviews
1) Price is right.
2) The Level, Rate, Depth and Filter knobs really do a lot to shape the tone. You can do even more with the high and low cuts.
3) Stereo outs make for a really nice chorusing effect between amps.
4) The pedal design is very responsive to the foot when playing, jumping around, and stomping. Some of the plunger switches on other types of pedals can get stuck, break, or fail to engage/disengage when you step on them. The Boss switching is much smoother in my experience.
5) Tough. I jam with a guitar player who has used and abused his Boss DS-1 distortion pedal for over 15 years and it's still hanging in there. Meanwhile, I broke a $340 boutique chorus pedal plunger switch with a clumsy stomp one day. That simply would not happen with a Boss and that's why I replaced said boutique candy ass with this one (even though it was easy to fix the switch on the other one with some solder).
Long story short, the Boss line is money well spent.
What I enjoy best about this pedal, besides all of the possible tonal variety, is the fact that this chorus isn't one of those lush sounding pedals, which I guess is a personal preference, but for my own personal style I needed something that was subtle, but you could tell it was there, and the CE-5 delivers in every possible way. You probably could get a pretty lush sound out of it using the depth knob, but again, it's a something I have little interest in.
I am running the CE-5 in conjunction with a TC Electronic Vintage Compression pedal, a Line 6 DL4, and an original Alesis Microverb and I'm also using a stereo amplifier setup. I'm into the chamber/ambient/avant garde jazz thing, so it's great that the CE-5 can provide me with the chorus sound I have been looking for all of these years.
Give the CE-5 a chance. I think you will be surprised by the results. It's time to sell my other chorus pedals now. If something happened to this pedal, I would replace it in a heartbeat.
Compact size is a plus. Instructions and info with are very detailed.
I would recommend aux or ac pwr for it as it will use up a 9v battery fairly soon. If you have more than one pedel, definately get the ac pwr. It also does reduce gain between your instrument and amp a little. A dyna/comp will fix that.
When adjusted to full chorus effect you get a broad spectrum of shimmering tones that are precise and ethereal. Its a good choice.
-Nice "liquidy" chorus tone from subtle to heavy
-Lots of controls
-Kind of a tone killer. Switching the pedal on kills the low end on bass. I didn't mind this, but some of you might
-The pedal introduced noise to my chain. I daisy-chained a few pedal using one of those adapters with multiple plugs. With this pedal and reverb pedal the noise was subtle, but when I added a 3rd pedal the noise became quite significant.
I got rid of this pedal to raise funds to get another bass, but I did enjoy the sounds of the pedal, both in mono and stereo. If someone gave me this pedal I would probably use it, but until then, I'm going to see what else is out there. Hopefully I will find something with equal or better tone, and no noise.
