In 2016, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of BOSS innovation, the original analog chorus sounds are now reborn with the Waza Craft CE-2W. The CE-2Ws Standard mode faithfully recreates the classic CE-2 chorus sound, and adds an expansive new sound field with stereo output, which was unavailable in the mono CE-2. CE-1 mode fully reproduces the stereo chorus and vibrato sounds of the legendary CE-1, with the addition of variable chorus depth not available in the original pedal. To commemorate the birth of BOSS effects, the CE-2W is made exclusively in Japan, just as the original CE-1 and CE-2 were.

I acquired the Waza Craft Chorus back in January of 2018, looking to upgrade from a generic Chorus Ensemble. Honestly, I didn't expect as much at first, until I hooked it up onto my board with my Randall RM50. The tones are a dream come true. The CE-1 vintage setting with a low rate and high depth gave back life to my clean tones. It sounds warm, organic and has plenty enough headroom to spare. The guitar tone is respected very well, and I'd put it up against any other chorus pedals as well as any and all digital modellers out there that have constantly tried (and failed!) to give me the chorus tones that I was looking for. You will not be disappointed. Once you buy this pedal, it's very hard to go back to digital effects. Dear Boss, thank you for giving back life to my clean tones. Fractal, Kemper and Line 6, your services are no longer required.

When you think of a chorus pedal, this is the sound you're thinking of. Highly recommended.

The Boss CE-1 and CE-2 should need no introduction; as both the first compact(ish) chorus pedals on the market, and widely regarded as the best that analog has to offer, the originals have become incredibly expensive, despite some inherent limitations such as noise, monophonic (CE-2) and AC voltage and an incredibly combersome size (CE-1). Enter the Boss Waza Craft CE-2, which offers the best of both worlds. As a hand-built replica of the CE-2 that also has stereo outs, it's actually a better than the CE-2 ever was. That it also comes with the CE-1 chorus and vibrato circuits as a bonus makes this pedal a must-have, if you can afford the not-cheap price. Pros: Sounds amazing in all three modes. The CE-1 circuit is the standout for me. Cons: Might be noisy in your fx loop (it's really hissy in mine), no level knob, and the stereo consists of a wet side and a dry side (although this is typical of analog chorus pedals). Worth it? Depends on you. Very much for me.

I wish it had a level knob. The depth control makes the tone hollow sounding at its lowest setting. For 303 bucks (after taxes), it doesn't seem to offer much value for the money. Unlike other choruses, this one does not fatigue the ear. My favourite setting is the CE1 chorus. It is darker and more robust then the CE2 setting.
