    Finally came across a Boss CE-2 Chorus MIJ Black Label at a decent price in great shape. Forgot how much I liked this pedal years ago. Anyone else use them

    I've only ever heard reports of how good it is.

    Sorry I mean to say was the Waza C Dimension birthed by the CE2. or put another way is the Dimension C based on the CE2?

    I’ve had one (silver screw) for years. Think I paid $30-$40. Owned one or two previous to that.

    CE-2 and the Analogman Mini are my two favorites.

    Had my CE2 since the 80's as a constant on my pedalboard. Only recently I got an Analogman Bi Chorus which due to its flexibility and fab 'leslie' setting could replace it.
    I'd consider a 30 year run a pretty good use of a pedal.

    I have a black label mij ce2. Love it. Lush chorus.

    I have a ce3 too. The ce2 sounds better, warmer, richer. But it was fun to try the ce3 stereo output.

    I hope you didn't pay an arm and a leg. The new MIJ Waza CE-2s are top notch.

    Same here. Then I rationalize that my DOD FX65 is near the same because they use the same chip (or so I have read on the web).

    Nice, my wife is going to Japan in a couple months. I’m putting together a list of stuff for her to look for a deal on. The CE-2 is at the top of that list.

    I've got two. One was gifted to me a long time ago (it's on my board now) and one I bought about 2 years ago from a Craigslist ad for about $5.00. I was actually buying a Boss Blues Driver for $10 when I noticed the guy had some other pedals and cables in a box. I asked "how much"? $20 for three more pedals plus the cables. I keep it as a spare.
