            I doubt it, I think Boss delays, chorus and metal zone pedals.

              As much as EH and the boutiques get talked up here, the fx market is still the house that Boss built, and I'd expect that sales in the 80's, 90's and 2000's, will reflect this.
              better to reign in hell...

                Kudos. I agree. Most of my musician friends do not hang out here and even with the influx of semi boutique brands showing up on GC shelves Boss and DOD are the two brands most musicians associate pedals with.

              3. Boss CE-2
              Huh? That pedal was discontinued in 1982...

              The t.c. SCF in 10th place is a small surprise - not because of what it is (chorus was a big deal back then), but because of its pricetag.

                I double checked, and it does say ce-2. Must have been a misprint.

                    Yeah, the 80's sucked! oke: We never talk about or use those effects now! The above 4 pedals still receive alot of discussion here, 20 years later. That's the 2000's for you!

                      I think Boss officially pulled the CE2 from their catalog in 1982, but I think they made them a few more years after that. I don't think this is the only pedal they've done it with, either. Now if they made them for an additional 6 more years, that does seem like a stretch.

                          according to www.bossarea.com the CE-2 was being made/sold until 1990 (or maybe even later).

                          "Roland says that they stopped marketing the CE-2 November 1982. The pedal was however still produced and sold at least [until] 1990. The label changed from black to green 1984. The CE-2 was produced in Japan up until 1988 when production moved to Taiwan."

                            Yeah, the 2000s, when everything "vintage" is good.
