Hi all, im looking into getting a new pedal for my setup,
can anyone tell me the difference between the boss ce-5 and the boss ch-1 ?
and one other question if you had to pick between reverb or chorus, which one would you go for ?
Im just not sure which one to go for, i play a lot of different styles of music,
so its not a case of what kind of tone am i going for .
Any help is much apritiated smile.gif

For my playing i would go for reverb! With reverb you can get really good lead sound and also nice crystal clean sound when playing on clean sound.

Don't know about Boss pedals! smile.gif

Yeah, rather get the reverb if your amp lack it! I own a CH-1 but never use it. It just doesn't fit my style, I used it once for a Nirvana song, can't remember which (some chorus guitar intro and maybe rhythm can't recall), but that's all.

Well .... the thing about reverb pedals is ...

You should take Pavels and MickeM's advice and get one before you get a chorus pedal tongue.gif

Aha. Beaware that every pedal will take a bit off of the sound from your guitar.

The most useful pedals as I see it are

EQ
Delay
Wah (won't fit your board though)

And I'm really fond of my Overdrive though it's maybe not useful all the time.

That's the ones I use the most. Then I have reverb and distortion on the amp.
That makes six.

Actually Boss makes an auto wah in the small format. I hear it is very good actually.

Hey Andrew,

I just noticed that you are probably the closest geographically to me from GMC from what I have noticed. Especially where so many GMCers are from overseas. I grew up just north of Boston, Lawrence MA and currently live in Londonderry NH just over the MA border with my family.
