Boss CH-1 Super Chorus
The Boss CH-1 Super Chorus pedal is an analog guitar pedal. It has a 1/4 inch input and 1/4 inch outputs. It is not a rackable effect as it is a stomp box. It can be powered with a nine volt battery or by a nine volt power supply.

UTILIZATION

The general configuration and set up of the CH-1 is as easy as it gets when it comes to controlling and using pedals of this kind. It has four knobs - one for effect level, one for EQ (tone), one for rate, and one for depth. It is easy to get a good sound out of each and is pretty versatile overall. I don't have a manual for this but it is as easy as any pedal I have used and most should be able to figure it out pretty quickly.

SOUND QUALITY

The chorus effect on the CH-1 is really clean and vibrant overall. You can get a subtle chorus sound or get a sound similar to a leslie cabinet. It is easy to get a wide array of sounds from this, all of which have a great quality to them. I only use this pedal with guitar but it would probably work well with keyboards and any other electronic instruments you'd like to plug this into. Using this subtlety with a Boss DS-1 distortion pedal and a little delay can give you a really awesome tone. This pedal has the capability to deliver a quick and easy high quality chorus sound.

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using the Boss Super Chorus CH-1 for about three or four years. I usually use it with a Fender Stratocaster or Telecaster and a '76 Fender Twin Reverb. While I don't use chorus all the time, this gives me the sound I need when I'm looking to use it. Its ease of use makes it a breeze to get a good sound out of it without any hassle. Boss is known for making reliable products with a great design and stability and the price makes it viable for anyone to obtain this if they are in need of chorus. While I would also recommend checking out a few of the other chorus pedals on the market to see where your personal preference lies, the CH-1 is definitely worthy of a look when it comes to guitar chorus pedals.

Boss CH-1 Super Chorus
Boss is an admirable company because they actually do some very difficult things. They make relatively sturdy gear at relatively affordable prices. Their higher end gear is even better in this way. And looking at the BOSS SUPER CHORUS CH-1 analog pedal, one of their more affordable units, it's easy to see. Featuring the usual 1/4 inch in and two 1/4 outs (one is mono), this foot pedal probably makes it pretty high up the professional food chain. It's called SUPER Chorus because of it's unique, shimmering tone, almost like a lower and wider wave pattern than some of the first REALLY chintzy pedals. It's thicker midrange allows the player to get into some seriously different sounds.

UTILIZATION

Chorus in general is best used in the 'chain', in my opinion, AFTER things like wah and distortion and of course compression. Putting it near the end keeps the impact hot for things like tube drive or distortion, so I place is toward the end. This is a great first pedal and you may find it's your last for a while as the diversity of sound in its spectrum is surprisingly wide. Please note that sometimes the powering of chorus pedals is tricky; make sure you either use 9-volt battery or get a well-shielded chain for your pedalboard.

SOUND QUALITY

The most important aspect -- the tone -- is where this affordable pedal shines. Understanding what chorus does: imagine your tone coming down toward your amplifier and suddenly amazingly quick snippets of the tone were totally removed, like half a second's worth. Then imagine this 'ribbon of tone' moving as slowly or quickly as you'd like, causing at fast speed a 'shimmering' and at slow speed a rambling 'warble'. To the ear (and mixed in with the band) it sounds so shimmery and washy it almost could be two guitars. That's why chorus is excellent in one guitar band's arsenal: it's a go-to for me almost anytime I'm playing rhythm. I don't solo w/ chorus pedal, you may like to. Now the chorus is most effective at a quicker "rate" (thus the rate knob), the output level has to be above 12 o'clock due to a slight deflating in tone from the pedal and there's also a 'depth' which sounds exactly like that. All the while, it's "super" chorus. See, it says so right there on the pedal, mate. It's not just chorus. It's super chorus.

OVERALL OPINION

Ultimately I've tried other analog chorus pedals and have returned, oddly, to this one. For any kind of clean channel strummin', pickin' or cluckin', it just totally brightens up the tone (try it low rate). Or use it with drive and a high depth and jam some Smashing Pumpkin chords. It really is one of the pedals Boss got right, whereas other of their comparable low-end stuff (distortion, phase. etc) doesn't sound it.
