A True Classic.
I bought my Boss CE-2 used, and it definitely looked well-loved. My version is the most vintage (and perhaps most coveted) version, with the Japanese black label (these were made in the late 70s/early 80s). It just sounds terrific, and easily recalls chorus tones of yesteryear, from the lush chorused guitars on Crowded House's "Don't Dream It's Over" to the subtle jangle on The Smiths' "This Charming Man", this chorus does it all. Needless, to say this pedal is a legend in its own right, and a must-have for any chorus lovers/vintage pedal collectors/anyone.
This was my first pedal received as a Christmas present. Originally I didn't use this much until I started hearing it more as a subtle effect used by the Police, the Cure (all 80s sounding bands) but also more modern bands such as RHCP, Incubus etc I use this mainly to wash up the sound although it's cool when combined with an extreme amount of feedback.
Amazing chorus you can't find in a modern pedal!
David added two of these CE-2's in his rig to add more depth to his overall Wall sound. There are two versions of these, one with the model number (CE-2) starting from the "r" under CHORUS, and the other starting from under the "U". I have two if the former versions. They have a warmer, deeper sound than the latter.

End of the chorus journey
I've reached the end of my little chorus trip for that perfect 80s / 90s tone by getting this CE-2. I have quite early one, 1983 from Japan (Black Label) with MN3002 chip. Funny how two controls are enough to get that perfect tone which cannot simply be described in any words here. You need to hear it to understand why some many people hype about CE-2. Sounds just astonishing on cleans, kicks a** on dirts. Do not bother about CH-1, CE-5, Small Clone, MXRs etc - just get CE-2, period.
Always been the best sounding Chorus ever - only critique is a slight volume boost once engaged but hey we should not complain its better than a drop in volume.My one has been modde with the monte allums kit - faster rate and a few upgrades in op amps etc- great but emphasises the volume boost even more.
