Do all the elements of this Boss CE-2 match?

    Unfortunately, just by looking at it, no one can tell you if the components like the capacitors, or resistors have drifted from their original values.

    But my guess is based on the condition of yours, it hasn't been used much, and probably is good as new.

    How does it sound? Do the dials give the correct response? Any difference in tone with battery, or adapter?

    It sounds absolutely fantastic and there's no volume drop. Yes, the dials are responding correctly to all knob variations. There's no difference (to my ears) between using an adapter or a battery.

    I believe the long dash black labels are the same as the silver screw. Not 100% on that, but I think the screw is the only difference on the early ones.

    Yes, you're right (according to my research too)! Which is great, since I could get this pedal in almost mint condition for much less than a silver screw version. After all, what good would a screw do to my sound, right? hahahah

    Plus you can always order the screw from Boss if you like.
