First impressions: Pretty solid build, four simple yet expressive knobs, decent price.This little blue stompbox is fantastic. I mainly use it for subtle tone boost, where you can't really tell that it is chorus that I am using. I set the depth at around 2 o'clock, rate at around 10 o'clock, tailor EQ and level as needed, and then I turn it on for the duration of my playing. It works well with both single coils and humbuckers, though it suits my DeArmond M77 with USA Dynasonics especially well. This box makes my clean tones shine and fattens up my overdrive just where I want it. Of course, subtlety is not all this pedal is capable of. You can get some very deep, lush tones all the way into quirky and dizzying madness. Not sure if this is true stereo operation or not, but that isn't a feature I was concerned with.I am on my second one currently, though that is not due to any issues on Boss's end- I accidentally hooked my previous Super Chorus up to a 10v power supply and it fried something inside. Whoops! Needless to say, I purchased another one, and if presented with the option again, I would stick with this pedal.

This pedal color's your tone and the tone knob doesnt really help and it sounds kind of generic or digital with my tube screamer so i got rid of mine. For the price, i got mine used, its not bad but you could save your money now and get a better pedal later, i would reccoment the digitech chorus factory; it has 7 or so different choruses on it including 2 boss pedals, 1 flanger and a TC Chorus/Flange setting! and if you think all digitech pedals are bad, think again.Overall, i wouldn't reccomend this to someone who plays 2-5 gigs a month, but if your just starting out or still learning then i say go for it.. To the untrained ear, its not bad ;)

    Comments about Boss CH-1 SUPER Chorus Pedal:

    I bought this to replace a danelecto chorus pedal which had been purchased to replace an MXR stereo chorus pedal on my gig pedal board. The MXR was too diddly and if it wasn't hooked up stereo the chorus effect was almost undetectable. The danelecto was a good unit, but like the MCR it was huge and also required 18v, which meant a separate transformer instead of taking 9v right off my 13 year-old SKB pedal board.
    The Boss pedal is 9v and the jack is on the far side if the metal case, which is better than the MXR arrangement where the power jack is right next to the output jack for some reason. Boss battery access is superior. It has a self-retained screw with a thumb wheel and also access from the top so you don't have to pull the Velcro off if for some reason you need battery power. It sounds great 2nd-to-last in my chain and the controls allow me to adjust from subtle to rediculous.

      Comments about Boss CH-1 SUPER Chorus Pedal:

      I've had this pedal for about a week and after learning all the best ways to adjust each knob, I'm starting to love this pedal. I first used it with my electric guitar with a Boss DS-1 distortion pedal in front of it. I've also used it alone with my electric and acoustic guitars. I haven't been able to use it with a tubed amp yet, only used it through my solid state and my Tascam digital mini studio, the sound is full and warm. I found the two most versatile adjustments are the depth and EQ. You can create harmonic/thin eerie sounds all the way down to a deep, full, warm, and rich tone. Make sure to plug into the right output if your not splitting your signal, because you won't hear much of an effect. Make sure to play with the effects level knob, it's amazing how well it can introduce just a little effect all the way to full blown effect without affecting the tone.

        Comments about Boss CH-1 SUPER Chorus Pedal:

        I have been using this pedal for few months now with my Ibanez RGA42FM and its sounds amazing. I use it for all kinds of songs ranging from soft jazz to rock/light metal. I use this for my worship team at church mainly and with the adjustment of the knobs, I can make it fit in anywhere perfectly. Also, like other Boss pedals, it is built to last with a metal frame. Even though I dropped it by accident few times, it still works like a charm. Would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a chorus pedal. Pretty decent price also for an amazing pedal. :P

        The first one I bought had a defective switch, would not turn on and off correctly. The replacement one did not work at all. I am getting a third and hope its a charm. When it works, sound is great? Also, Musicians Friend has been great on returns.

                  Great sounding pedal for the money! The depth it creates for my les paul is unreal! I'm sure there are better pedals out there but I come across this one used and I tried it out and it was amazing playing anything from lynrd skynrd to zakk wylde's crazy licks!

                    Boss does it again! Nice sturdy pedal. There are cheaper plastic onces out there, but I can see me breaking them easilly. This is well built.

                    Sound effects are really sweet... I usually use it on all my songs for a "fuller" tone. Not set to overpower, but to enhance. The 4 knobs give you a nice range of tones.
