    I like both

    but I went with the CE-5 because it does the LUSH thing and has options. These days I hate options lol - so I would go simpler. The ability to get a good mix and cut and set treble is a nice thing on the C3-5 and therefore many pros use it on tour and in the studio.

    CE-5 for me as well... I really disliked the CH-1. It wasn't deep and lush enough, and to dial it to become lush, it just became yucky and de-tuned.

    The CE-5 can do subtle to lush, without sounding de-tuned.

    Check out a BBE Mind Bender pedal. 2 sounds for one pedal, good sound, and simple to use.

    i have not owned a Super Chorus in years.... i remember i liked it but i bought a bunch of CE-5's used....... they come up cheap once in a while... i find i can get the sound of my favourite Boss Chorus out of it with more controll... my fav is the old Dimension C or whatever it's called... but i don't take my older stuff out that often and prefer to use cheap replaceable goods.. the CE-5 fits the bill
