Boss CE-1 vintage effect pedal for sale in full working order.
Mono in, stereo out.
A stone cold classic effect: guitar, keys, synths, bass, mix – this is a great-sounding vintage chorus.
In very good condition with minor scuffs and dings across the case. The face has some scratches and other signs of wear. On knob is damaged around the top rim. See photos for more information on cosmetic condition.
For sales in UK/EU the price will include 20% VAT. VAT-free sales are possible to businesses and individuals in the EU (outside the UK) with a valid VAT Number - please get in touch if you wish to buy this way.
100v Japanese model - it will run on North American mains 115/120v without a transformer (we run all our tests using 120v power); however, a step-down transformer is recommended for extended use. A step-down transformer is required in the UK/EU. We do not recommend using cheap generic Chinese mains transformers and can supply a high quality UK-made unit if required.

Syncussion. Bass. Distortion. Gid loves all of these things. So yes, it’s supposed to sound like that 😬. Headphones capture the full texture here (with apologies for mono output - old iPhone issues). . Bass sound and saw tooth distortion are courtesy of the Psyco X Syncussion overloading the Roland mixer, and then also the RE-200 on the effect send. All of those things are serviced, available and can be yours. Rhythm Fever is sold tho. (CE-1 is splitting the drum machine output and adding stereo weirdness before it triggers the Syncussion.)

Which is your favourite analogue echo? This fab twosome play nicely together: fuzz bass into the Roland RE-201 Space Echo (note the pinned meter) and guitar into classic Boss CE-1 Chorus Ensemble (first pedal produced by Roland offshoot, Boss) and Sound City Echomaster (solid state Binson Echorec).

Loving the Polivoks. Has a sound like nothing else. It’s no Minimoog where almost every sound you get is superb, but find the sweet spots on the controls and it has some special nasty magic in there. This one is serviced and for sale now - full details ➡️➡️ soundgas.com It needs some effects to bring out the best of its character. Here Gid is driving it hard through a Boss CE-1, and then doubling down on the analogue distortion by overdriving two old BBD boxes (Guyatone AE-5 & Elk EM-7) with the split signal from the Boss. All gear is available now except the Elk. #polivoks #synthesizer #vintagesynth #electronicmusic #techno #beats #imakebeats
"Excellent equipment, wonderful service. I fully recommend Soundgas to anyone in the vintage gear market and I will definitely be a return customer. The gear itself was exactly as advertised and in great condition."
"Still in shock! Can not believe how good the seller is. This product was inspected, and shipped from the UK to the USA quicker than orders from my home state. Highly recommend these guys."
"Packed with love and care. A stampede couldn't have crushed this thing. Works great and sounds like a dream. I love you Soundgas."
"DREAM. COME. TRUE. My music has taken me around the world a few times...and if you are like me and absolutely adore vintage gear...Soundgas is the stuff of LEGENDS. It's the shop that people like us search for our whole lives- fantastic and rare selections, and the technical know-how to repair and or mod these vintage items to get them into shape to flow with your modern setup."
“I’ve bought a number of items from Soundgas recently, and have been really impressed with their service. It takes the stress out of buying vintage gear to know it’s been properly (and faithfully) serviced or restored. Their after-sales service has also been exemplary. Highly recommended.”
“Imagine the perfect eBay.... with everything you never knew you wanted… and you can rest assured that your vintage and rare wobbly sound device will turn up on time and in one piece and possibly in even better condition that when it left the workshop. Soundgas - literally amazing."
“I purchased a completely overhauled vintage valve Binson Echorec 2 T7E modified with varispeed, wet-only output, and a new paint job from Soundgas in early 2018. Tony and his team did an amazing job during every step of the purchase”
"Soundgas provided the absolutely top service in terms of item quality as well as service and communication. Shipping was fast, packing was top notch. These people deserve the best reputation they already have. Many many thanks, guys."
"Soundgas has an unbelievable selection of the cool, old stuff that’s hard to find. Tony knows his stuff and goes out of his way to make sure the transaction is a smooth one. Thanks guys!"
"When you are spending big money of vintage gear it's nice to have the confidence of impeccable service, sales and support... some of the best in the industry! Impeccable people, incredible equipment… my poor poor fiancé"
“The Space Echo made its way to me - it looks and sounds beyond dreams, thanks guys for your great service and communication.”
“The perfect place to hear, learn about and then buy your most wanted piece of vintage music gear! I've not only managed to buy a rare piece of equipment I really wanted, but I have the guarantee it's been serviced, and I got it from people who are clearly passionate and knowledgeable about what they do, as well as super friendly and responsive by email. Thoroughly recommended!”
“If not a new language, then at least a very challenging, old dialect that will take me some time to assimilate. I’ve been waiting a long time for the challenge. Thank you @soundgasltd, she’s a beaut...and nobody prepares and packs like you fine folks.”
"Soundgas offer a great service, sourcing esoteric gear that works great."
"Finally, a company that tracks down all those brilliant curiosities that bring so much character and personality to a studio."

“I have bought two Moog synths from Soundgas over the past year, and I cannot say enough wonderful things about their selection of vintage products, the level of service, diligent responses to email, and expedient shipping with copious protective packaging. Soundgas is an impressive operation. My synths also sound amazing! These folks have made my vintage keyboard dreams come true in short order!”
“If you are a vintage audio gear head then this is the place you have been looking for all your life. Pretty much any piece of classic or obscure kit that you are after is available here... But the clincher for me is that the gear they sell has been restored by their top techs (unless otherwise noted) which is really very important when dealing with, for example, synths from 30 years ago.”
"Just received my Roland RS 505 Paraphonic! Thanks so much - arrived very promptly, well packaged, in great condition and sounds amazing! Best seller."
