ENO CH-2 Chorus Pedal Review

ENO CH-2 Chorus Effect Pedal

Don’t be fooled by the size of the ENO CH-2 Chorus Effect Pedal. It may be mini, but it covers a wide range of chorus sounds from 80s lush to modern, more subtle tones!


It’s a great addition to any pedalboard thanks to its tiny size!


Come with me as we check out the ENO CH-2 Pedal in detail.




The ENO CH-2 Chorus is a mini effect pedal with four controls, footswitch, LED, two jack sockets and power. I believe that this pedal is a clone of the BOSS CH-1. Just it’s yours for a quarter of the price and half the size!


For those who didn’t live through the 80s! Chorus is when your guitar signal is double and then a short delay is applied to the second signal which is also been modulated in pitch.


And while we might not being using those types of chorus sounds often these days, some guitarist love a little touch of it on their clean tones to add some depth.



Build Quality: 9/10

This pedal has received my highest build quality for a few reasons. The jack sockets are screwed into the enclosure, meaning they’ll last longer, suffer more abuse and are harder to damage.


While there’s no battery compartment due to the size, the power jack on the top is fixed to the case, which again adds longevity to the pedal. And is another nice touch.


The small controls aren’t fixed to the enclosure and so might be easily damaged, however, the main rate control is large and is affixed.



Controls and Features: 7/10

The pedal is true bypass, which is a nice touch and ensures a cleaner signal path when not in use.


The four controls are Volume, Depth, EQ, and Rate.


Volume control is, in my opinion, is more of an overall mix control rather than providing an overall volume boost or cut.


Depth knob controls how much effect you would like to have.


The EQ control allows you to get a more vintage chorus sound when set lower and more glassy sounds when turned up.


And finally, the Rate control is how fast or slow you want the chorus effect to be.



Tones and Sounds: 7/10

This little box can enable you to get darker vintage chorus sounds with the depth and the EQ set fairly low. Or crank the EQ control for a more modern sound.


The rate control has a really wide scope and allows you to go from subtle chorus tones to faux Leslie sounds when turned all the way up.


My basic sound on is to have the Volume all the way up. The Depth set at 3 o’clock. EQ set 9 o’clock. And the Rate set just over half way.




Overall: ENO CH-2 Chorus Effect Pedal Review

Rating: 8/10

Overall, I really like the ENO CH-2 Chorus pedal. It sounds really good with a wide range of tones and is small enough to add to any pedalboard.


I don’t get the volume and the depth controls as to me, they are both the same! I’m slightly confused as to why you might need both of them!


I can understand the guitarists who want a bigger pedal which allows for battery power. That said, I can’t fault it for the player who wants to add a chorus effect now and again.


This pedal is especially good if you play functions and need to cover a range of different musical eras without breaking the bank or taking up loads of pedalboard space.


While it sounds different to the number of chorus pedals I’ve had and used over the years including an ARION SCH-1, the ENO CH-2 should be on your list if you’re looking for an affordable, versatile solution.
