Story


The Holy Grail of all chorus pedals! Boss issued the CE-1 back in the late 70s and early 80s and nobody has come close to matching its captivating chorus sound since. It’s a sexy grey box of sculpted metal with a choice of either chorus or true pitch shifting vibrato. Its warm analog circuitry really has to be heard to be appreciated. The CE-1′s chorus has a depth of character that truly fuses with your sound instead off simply sitting on top of it like the annoying metallic shimmer of most modern units. As for the Vibrato section, it is absolutely stunning in capturing the wobbly magic of the Magnatone vibratos of the late 50s and early 60s. To top off the praise, the built-in power supply and lengthy AC cord are certainly a welcome addition in our current world of annoying wall warts.

The CE-1 is two stereo effects (chorus and vibrato) in 1 box. Vibrato is controlled via speed and depth controls while the chorus utilizes just one overall effect level knob. This may sound limiting but it’s quite the opposite as thru its range this single control offers everything from subtle shimmering chorus to near Leslie cabinet simulations while never losing an ounce of its musical quality.
Of the 2 footswitches one selects chorus or vibrato and the other turns the selected effect on or off, but the secret to those magic CE-1 tones lies in careful use of the gain control.
