    Hey, I am wondering which is better for a bass. I know the CEB-3 is made specifically for bass. A guy told me that the CE-5 works on bass but it isn't made for the frequencies of the bass. Which one is better and what would you use/recommend? Thanks

    Me, I would go CE5. I owned and used a CEB3 for years and I honestly dont know why, its very subtle and almost non-existent in the mix. The CE5 may not be built for bass freq but it can generate a much lusher, more pronounced chorus effect any day over the CEB3. But, maybe you want a really subtle chorus. I would still go with the CE5. Thats me.
