CE-2 Redo TonePrint by Sweetwater
Sometimes the best things in life are the most simple ones, and this is definitely the case with the vintage Boss CE-2 chorus pedal. With just speed and depth knobs - which have a rather narrow range to boot, the CE-2 is just about as basic as it gets, but you'd be hard pressed to get a bad sound out of this classic stombox. You've definitely heard the CE-2 on numerous albums from the 80s and 90s and you'll still find this gem of a pedal on quite a few pro pedal boards, despite the fact that it's no longer produced. The CE-2 Redo TonePrint will give you the classic warm chorus tone of the CE-2, but with a couple of extra tweaking opportunities. The added tone control will allow you to make the effect warmer or brighter and the FX level knob will let you back down the overall chorus a bit for a more subtle effect. To get the original sound of the pedal, set the tone control at noon and crank the FX Level.
