Your last Chorus Pedal

By MasterMusician077

from Indiana

Comments about Boss CE-5 Chorus Ensemble Pedal:

This pedal works wonders. I dont know what I would do without this pedal. This can make any chorus sound or other vibrato effects that you want. It goes great with any pedal. You can make just about any sound better with this pedal. Or if you just want to fatten your sound, I highly reccomend this pedal.

It's a keeper

By Lonesome Larry

from Phoenix, AZ

Comments about Boss CE-5 Chorus Ensemble Pedal:

This pedal is a gem! It really shimmers with my Strat and can even mimic a rotary speaker like organ sound with chordal comping. Very versatile with the added benefits of high and low eq and effect mix. In short, this pedal sounds beautiful. Just what I was looking for. Price is right and it runs on 9 volts so I can put in in my chain without having t lug another power supply. (are you listening MXR?)

Boss CE-5 Chorus Boss CE-5 Chorus Ensemble Pedal

By CDOG

from bolinas, CA

Comments about Boss CE-5 Chorus Ensemble Pedal:

The best Chorus to date in the boss line is got to be the Boss CE-5 Chorus Ensemble Pedal, rich deep textures reproduced with clarity like violens in heaven. I like setting the parameters to get a soft subtle Vox like vibrato.I like the pedal and use it whenever a chorus is due.

Only chorus pedal ever needed...

By Ben D.

from Oxnard, CA

Comments about Boss CE-5 Chorus Ensemble Pedal:

I bought this pedal in 1996 and I've never been disappointed. Great with clean sounds, heavy distortion and everywhere else in between. Combined with an awesome delay pedal, you really may not need anything else. 5 star pedal, Boss.

    AWSOME!!!!!

    By Devon

    from Knoxville, TN

    Comments about Boss CE-5 Chorus Ensemble Pedal:

    This was my first pedal and it is well worth the money. my friend's pedal has tons of effects but none of the chorus effects compare to the sound of the boss CE-5. It is so clear. And if you dont like too much effect, you can just turn the effect level down unlike my friend's pedal. And its hard as a rock and it will fit just about anywhere. If you like chorus, this is it!!!

    Outstanding subtle chorus effect!

    By MIMbiased

    from ATL

    Comments about Boss CE-5 Chorus Ensemble Pedal:

    Is it good for dramatically changing your tone: No. Is it good for exploring new sounds and messing around. No (although I don't know that any chorus pedal really is). But is it great for adding a little richness and flavor to a tone. YES! YES! YES! Upon first using this pedal, it instantly enhanced my sound. With the effects turned up high, it gives a vibrato feel, which is kinda cool but not useful for me. The way I use it (turned down around half way), you might not even notice it at all. The guitar just sounds full and good. But turn off the pedal for a little while, and something is missing. Coupled with my digidelay pedal, my guitar sounds like a dream, and with disortion, it definitely adds some flavor without adding to the noise. You can definitely live without this pedal for a while, but once you find a tone you like and have a few extra bucks, buy this pedal! It's worth it. I haven't tried many other chorus pedals, but I can guarantee that this one will not detract from your tone, and can definitely make it better. After using this and the DS-1, I am sold on Boss pedals.

    Awsome!

    By Cody

    from Chaumont. NY

    Comments about Boss CE-5 Chorus Ensemble Pedal:

    This pedal is great! I get the exact sound i want out of it. With this pedal you can get perfect rush sounds,the classics to the 80's. It will make every chord sound more pronounced. And then when you turn the distortion off, the clean is just amazing! the only problem is it does eat batteries failry quick so you might want to buy and adapter.

    Another great Boss pedal

    By Burgers

    from Ann Arbor, MI

    Comments about Boss CE-5 Chorus Ensemble Pedal:

    If you know boss peals you already know the quality is great and they are built like tanks. This pedal contiues the boss legacy of great pedals. This pedal will give you everything from a really subtle chorus that sounds almost like a tremelo to super spacy chorus and everything in between. I got this pedal used and I've kicked it around and it has not let me down yet. Great pedal at a good price. Rock on!

    Unbelievable

    By Rustycan

    from Detroit, MI

    Comments about Boss CE-5 Chorus Ensemble Pedal:

    There is positively no better chorus ensemble pedal for the money, and size. If you're like me and you loud up on effect pedals and you like to be able to carry and fit them all in a reasonable manner the size is perfect. As to be expected from a Boss pedal, there is no comparison in tone and range of cutomization. Whether you're after a super clean stereo chorus sound or a wild screaming solo this is the pedal to end all chorus pedals.

    Pure Sweetness

    By StevieG

    from IL

    Comments about Boss CE-5 Chorus Ensemble Pedal:

    This pedal is not only great for guitar, but it's awesome with a bass. The pedal's second filter knob really makes it better then the normal Bass Chorus pedal BOSS offers. If you need a good chorus pedal, this is the way to go, especially if your low on cash. It offers a bright, flustering chorus or a fat, thick one. I chose it because I heard good about it and I was on a budget...sort of. Anyway, buy one if you don't have a chorus pedal!!!

    Simply the best chorus pedal.

    By Khawaja Jodat

    from Pakistan.

    Comments about Boss CE-5 Chorus Ensemble Pedal:

    I purchased it two years ago. I was about to jumb from my chair with extreme pleasure when I first heard its brilliant sound. It is so lush, rich & sweet that it enveloped every corner of my jam room. I think this is the best chorus pedal ever created by Boss. I have used other several chorus pedals before but this is something extra ordinary. This pedal is capable of producing all sort of chorus sounds from smooth to penetrating type. It works equally great with Mono setting. The provided Low/High filters are very useful features which give you a big choice to fine tune your favorite sound. I also used it with distortion and overdrive pedals and it works great & enhances the overall sound. I now cannot think to live without it. This pedal has a very hi-tech circuit so it is completely noise-less.

      A very easy to use pedal that gives, for me, excellent results. I initially purchased this pedal to split my signal and run stereo through twin amps. I like that I can run my dry side through other effects keeping the wet signal unaffected.

          Didn't realize all cables need to be removed after use else the batteries go dead overnight. Bit of a pain, but manageable.
