PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Uncommon, early Roland analogue BBD chorus (despite having “digital” in the name!). Excellent condition and working order.

Obviously shares some DNA with the Boss CE-1, however they are not that similar in terms of the circuit – for example the Boss uses MN3002 chips and this uses MN3001. It’s a pretty simple beast – you can’t vary the speed of the chorus or hall echo (short delay) so it’s really just a case of plugging in and dialling in the intensity of effect required. See below for a useful comparison video between this and the chorus in an RE-301.

Serviced and working well.

CONDITION: excellent overall. The only real sign of age is some oxidation on the sockets.

  • It is a 100v Japanese model and will run fine 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.

For sales in UK/EU the price will include 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.
