    Just curious how it sounds. I've been itchin' for a chorus, but probably wouldn't use it enough to justify the $ on an AM Clone Chorus, or something similar. I used to have a stock CE-2 and liked it, was thinking of picking one up off fleabay and having RK do the mod. Any thoughts?

    I have one and love it. I got the speedy mod but don't use it that fast. I actually keep the speed quite low. Sounds terrific. Especially with dirt before it. I don't use it that much now though since I need for my chorus to be stereo. But for a mono chorus, it is really good!

    I had one and loved it. It was too "wet" for my taste and I went with the Fulltone Choralflange (I like more subtle chorus) because of the mix knob; but the overall tone and vibe of the Keeley mod on the CE2 is killer.

    Got one and dig it a lot. I use it for a fake Leslie sound at the high speeds.

    I like my Speedy mod very much..you can also use the internal trimmer to make it faster or slow it it way down which I like to do! It has A SLIGHT BOOST when engaged and that adds to mix well.

    Outside of putting through a Loooper with a mix control, does anyone know of a mod that might include a mix knob? It's not a deal breaker, coz like I said, I probably wouldn't use it that often, and not unless I really wanted an obviously chorused tone. It's just the tweaker in me...

    I have one and it sounds wonderful. I just haven't found a lot of use for a chorus. I used to love them. I would consider selling it if anyone would be interested.

    The Arion SCH-1 does the leslie thing better than the keeley speedy mod CE-2 for me. More pronunced and deep. The CE-2 is a great chorus on its own right but I can't get both to fit in my board so probably the Arion stays.. Just need to install a true bypass switch and maybe a rehouse if I can find a way..
    Any ideas on that?
