A pair of Boss pedals—an OC-3 Super Octave and CE-5 Chorus Ensemble—complete his onstage stomp box selection." Normally I use chorus for ‘Pretty Woman,’ but we’re not playing that song this time,” says Van Halen. “On this tour I use it for ‘Drop Dead Legs,’ and I also use the octave pedal for the outro riff on that song." From a interview from Eddie discussing his live rig for the 2015 tour.more

This video from DunlopTV features the guitar tech of TOOL's longest acting bassist, Justin Chancellor. As he runs through some of the pedals within Chancellor's pedal board, we see that the over-all board is in 3 sections. The camera does a tightly zoomed pan of the board and shows the BOSS CE-5 Chorus Ensemble.more
Even if i’m not crazy about chorus this pedal is a must to sometimes add depth in your sound. The best chorus i ever heard is on a roland chorus amplifier but this is a good pedal to have in your arsenal.
Truth be told, I'm not a huge chorus fan, but you kind of have to have one. I don't know if this will stay, but it has been with me quite awhile. It has more control flexibility than I have ever used and it took awhile for me to find sound useful to me, but I'm there now, so it's part of the stable. With my current set-up, I have not quite found the Scofield sound, but that's probably more me than anything on my board!
The second pedal I owned. I've been playing guitar for over seven years now, instruments, amplifiers, and pedals have all come and gone. This one always stayed. Just a damn good pedal. I keep almost all the knobs at 1 o'clock.
I purchased mine second hand and could tell it had seen a lot of use. Well, Boss builds some amazing tank of pedals because it still works and is AWESOME! Excellent Chorus pedal! I had a choice between the Chorus Ensemble and the Super Chorus. Glad I went with the Ensemble!
This effect is totally different of very known analog one but not bad, in the contrary it is very efficient even in the loop of the amp, and you get stereo signal, you can also put it in the front to wards 2 different amplifiers. Great clean sounds from Boss
An instant classic among artist, comes with two outputs (mono), you can split between to amps, one with the effect and the other non affected, you can dile in just about every posibility there is with this baby.
From Ch1 to CE5 there's no a bad chorus pedals in the history of boss. The CE5 is a summary of decades of experience of boss, the EQ section is very responsive that allows you to change from a crystal shiny chorus to a warm and liquid tone. In my opinion it has nothing super bad and nothing super good but it works for every sound you have in mind.
The pedal is simple to use, once you experiment with it to find your own sounds. The Pedal has an E. Level (Wet/Dry signal), Rate (Vibrato effect), Depth (Level of Chorus), and a Filter. The unique thing about this chorus, over the Boss Super Chorus, is its Filter. Its a two-stage filter, so you can filter your Hi's and Lo's (Bass & Treble)
Tanto em pequenas porções para "molhar" o som quanto com uma configuração mais profunda, peça fundamental no pedalboard de qualquer guitarrista. Ótimo controle de graves e agudos.
I only use this for a tiny flavour of chorus as I'm not a huge fan of modulation but it is capable of a lot more. In hindsight I should have aimed for something simpler (not that it is a complex pedal) but I bought it from a friend so no complaints.
Especially when you add reverb as well. Feedback and delay to go crazy. This is where chorus began with BOSS. So lush. Seperate controls for how much you chorus the highs and lows.
Like all boss pedals, this thing is built like an absolute tank. I love the exact ways you can customize your tones. The filter is huge for me as I have very trebly pickups in, so i find most choruses have too much treble than I like, the fact that you can filter out some of the highs is huge for me. Very lush, but the warble isnt necessarily as noticeable as I'd like. May one day upgrade, but is great for me for what I need now
I have early analog CE-5 version from 90s and this chorus just rocks! Creamy, liquid, lush and warm as hell. Stands quite close to its older brother CE-2; can really add lots of warmth and space to cleans. Also, sounds wonderful on dirt channel as it brings back 80's chorusy lead tone. Best tonal range I've ever tested.
