Quoted from Jason Unger at Jason's Gear Jungle ;
" The holy grail of chorus, these earliest CE-2’s sound so much better than the ones that came after...even better than the other/early black label/long dash non silver screw versions. These early versions utilized different and better quality bucket brigade chips. If you’ve ever had the opportunity to use one of these, you’ll know what I’m talking about. I’ve tried the new Waza Craft version and it just can’t compare, it doesn’t possess the same kind of warmth...brighter and a little harsh by comparison. These vintage examples don’t pop up for sale often anymore, mainly because the people that own them hang onto them. I’m only listing this because I have a big purchase I need to finance, it will definitely be missed. As you can see in the accompanying pictures, it’s in great shape for it’s age...the Boss serial decoder dates this one back to September of 1980. It’s been tested with a battery and a Boss ACA adapter, it functions flawlessly and sounds absolutely gorgeous."

BEP totally agrees with Jason, the older silver screw versions sound a lot more organic.

The CE-2 was the first compact pedal chorus from Boss. The CE-1 was released 1976 and contained the exact same circuit as the Roland Jazz Chorus JC-120 Amp. The CE-2 builds on the legacy of the CE-1 but isn't identical. The middle region is boosted in the CE-2 compared to the CE-1. According to the design engineers this may be because the CE-1 had a lower input impedance.

Roland says that they stopped marketing the CE-2 November 1982. The pedal was however still produced and sold at least out 1990. The label changed from black to green 1984. The CE-2 was produced in Japan up until 1988 when production moved to Taiwan.
