Gary Moore’s Boss CE-3 Chorus

In the early to mid 80s Gary started using a number of Boss pedals, including a Boss CE-3 Chorus. He used this pedal as his main chorus effect, since he didn’t like the chorus on his Roland SRE-555 Chorus Echo.

The chorus I only have because the chorus on my Chorus/Echo isn’t very satisfactory to me, it’s not kind of intense enough, so I use the pedal in place of that — the only thing I use on the Chorus/Echo is the repeat effect itself, and sometimes the reverb.

Gary stopped using the pedal around 1984, and moved onto a Roland Dimension D, which is a rack unit.
