Boss CEB-3 Bass Chorus

Bass Effect Pedal

Effects for bassists are always a bit tricky. Too much modulation impairs the directness and precision of the sound; moreover, normal guitar effects generally tend to cut the low frequencies of the signal, especially when the bass is a really undesirable side effect. BOSS is one of the first FX companies of the bassists and promises high-quality effect sounds, which should leave the important bass frequencies undamaged. The BOSS CEB-3 essentially corresponds to the CE-5, but has a low filter control, with which the bass range can be adjusted exactly to prevent sound degradation.

From the pioneer of the chorus effect comes the versatile new CEB-3 bass chorus. With it, you can create long-range chorus effects without altering the natural bass sound. In order to give you even more flexibility, we have installed a low filter control, which allows you to determine exactly the frequency that you want to record with Chorus. This gives you an incredible range of effects, from rich, spatial chorus for solos to very easy chorus effects, which only affect the overtones. To adjust the sound even more precisely, rate and depth controls are still installed. With this versatility, it always provides the optimal effect, whether you play with your fingers, with a pick or slaps. In addition, the CEB-3 also has a stereo output, which makes the chorus effect much more spatial. A really ideal effect pedal to expand your expressive possibilities.

  • Through the low-pass filter, the chorus effect does not affect the low frequencies and the bass sound remains differentiated and does not mash
  • Power consumption: 22mA
  • Power supply with a 9 V battery or a 9 V DC power supply (coaxial connector - negative pole / terminal inside - not included in delivery, for example, see item 409939 for availability)
  • Dimensions: (WxDxH) 70 x 125 x 55 mm
  • Weight: 450 g

Standard Boss
bassheder, 15.11.2017
I have been using this effect for a home recording project for the past 2 years. I got this Boss pedal for the reason that it is Boss. Considering Boss as an industry standard, the company never fails to deliver on what has been expected of the company.

In other words, the pedal is solid, the effect sound is good for recording and Thomann is delightful considering that I live in Saudi Arabia.

Does what it says on the tin
Patrick M, 24.02.2015
As with many of the Boss pedals, this thing does what it says it does. It's a pretty reasonable chorus pedal and a solid buy if you're looking to move into the world of chorus pedals.

Sound wise it's on the mark and is a pretty convincing sound. Not going to make anyone wet themselves with excitement, but how many chorus pedals do? It had a little difficulty thickening the sound of the lower notes of my bass, but perhaps that's a good thing to avoid muddiness. If you need something specialist you'll need to actually try a load of pedals, but this thing is pretty good all round.

Physically...it's a Boss box. We all know and love them. They're all sturdy and all nice and compact. Would like see it come with a power supply, but that's an issue with Boss across the board.

Like the other Boss pedals I own this one is a solid metal body with a great switch.

It is clear and simple to operate and you can get a good effected tone out of it in seconds even without any prior experience of chorus pedals.

As quality as the pedal is and as simple to use it unfortunately does not keep up with those standards in terms of sound.

The effect while very variable and easy to control sounds far to artificial for my ears. For someone who is new to playing or perhaps is just less picky than me this could be the pedal for them, I however found it to be too modern and digital sounding.
