  • Boss Ch-1 Super chorus vs Boss CE-5 Chorus Ensemble

    whichh is better in terms of sounding natural, no added noise or unwanted sounds.

    pretty much which one sucks less, ive heard they arent too good but i can get them dirt cheap and was wonder which is better.

      The CH1 has a stereo out that will give you an uneffected signal in stead of an out of phase sound, which puts it over the top, as far as I am concerned.

          When bypassed, the CH1 will still give you a stereo split -- you just get the same signal from both A and B outs. Typically, stereo chorus pedals will give you a 2nd signal that's out of phase with the first signal, but both A and B outs will have chorus. I prefer the Ch1 because you get a clean sound on one and a chorus sound on the other output.

              I believe so. At least one tech told me that the only reason Boss stopped doing this layout is because too many boneheads call and complain that there's no chorus on the "B" output, so they gave us the lame out of phase crap in the later models.

                  so the way a CE-3 operates is the preferred method? output A has the chorus effect and output B has just the clean sound?

                    I prefer a clean and an effected signal over 2 signals out of phase with each other. I think on stereo, the chorus with the CH1 is more pronounced and not washed out, as opposed to the stereo split with the CE 5.
