Boss CH-1 Super Chorus effects pedal
The Boss CH-1 Super Chorus has been in production for over 20 years.
There is something unique about this pedal that has made it a popular choice for guitarists looking for a perfect chorus sound to add depth to their tone.
While boss has updated their long-running Chorus Ensemble pedals with the CE-5 and the now discontinued CE-20, they have kept the CH-1 in product despite releasing competing models.
There’s just a different character to the CH-1 that makes it a unique pedal for there chorus pedals.
The most noticeable variation between the CH-1 and the CE-5 is in the tone-shaping controls available.
While the CH-1 sports a simple EQ tone knob, the CE-5 has a Filter section with High and Low cut controls.
This lets you find a precise tonal range for letting your chorus cut through the mix.
While the CH-1 simple lets you shape the overall tone of your chorus sound.
It may appear at first that the CE-5 Chorus Ensemble is the more versatile pedal, some people feel that it’s ultra-modern sound lacks the warmth of the CH-1.
