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.


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.


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.


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.
