The Boss CE-1 Chorus Ensemble is a chorus and vibrato guitar pedal. It is an analog pedal and has a 1/4 inch input and output for your instrument and amplifier. It is not rackable as it is a stomp box.


The configuration of the CE-1 is straightforward. It has two sections that control two different effects - chorus and vibrato. It has knobs for level control, chorus intensity and depth and rate to control the vibrato. It also has a switch to toggle between high and low to change the tone quality. There is a foot switch to choose between the chorus and vibrato effects, as you can't use both at once. I don't have a manual for this so I don't know how helpful it is.


Both the chorus and vibrato effects on the Boss CE-1 are awesome sounding. They are both thick and rich in tone and both have a unique sound to them. I have only used this with guitar - usually a Gibson SG and a '76 Fender Twin Reverb. This being said, this would probably sound great with an electric piano and other instruments of that nature. The chorus is one of the thickest chorus tones I have heard, and the vibrato is wobbly and makes for a pretty awesome effect.


I first used the Boss CE-1 Chorus Ensemble about two years ago. This is one of the first Boss pedals and therefore has a vintage sound to it that isn't present in the newer Boss pedals. While these are somewhat rare, you can find them on ebay even though they will cost you a decent amount of money for a guitar pedal. For those pedal collectors, this might be hard to live without as it has a vintage look and has some serious tone to it. If you are looking for your first chorus pedal I would recommend looking at some of the newer Boss pedals like the CH-1 as you will probably get more from it. However, if you crave that vintage tone and want to add a chorus and vibrato to your set up, this is absolutely worth a serious look.
