    Anyone know of any CE-1 clones out there? I know about the retrosonic, but they seem to have stopped making them and are out of stock everywhere I've looked. I had been meaning to pick one up as a backup but kept putting it off. Haven't seen one come up for sale here or on ebay either. My old CE-1 is starting to get a little beat up and I'd like something that doesn't take up so much space on my board.

    Musictoyz says the Retro-sonic chorus is not available until summer 2012.

    Vortex pedals blue maiden chorus. Uber pricey though - you could buy another ce1 with change to spare

    From what I've heard, they got more chips and are in the process of rereleasing the chorus.

    Cool, so it will be available again. I can wait a few months. A friend let me borrow his for a few days and it's the only chorus I've found that can come close to the CE-1. The vortex looks cool, but I'd be hesitant to throw down that much for a pedal without trying it.

    Jacques meistersinger is a ce-1 clone. It has the bbd chip and just sounds awesome. I own it. Its perfect for those early cure or johnny marr chorus sound.

    keep an eye out for vortex...the builder(justin) is/was from my end of the world(perth western australia) and last i spoke with him hes relocating to the US/portland.

    the blue maiden is absolutely top notch in terms of sound and build quality.

    The discontinued Voodoo Labs analog chorus is a CE-1 clone.
    They show up in the emporium from time to time at reasonable prices. Great pedal

    Isn't it more of a CE2 clone? You can't get a CE clone that small.
