Uncommon, early Roland analogue BBD chorus (despite having “digital” in the name!). Excellent condition and working order.
Sounds great – very “sea sick” and wobbly at the max setting.
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.
