    does anyone know what the frequency values are of the filters - low cut on Boss CEB-3 and the hi and low cuts on the Boss CE-5 are?

    for example, the MXR analog chorus, which has similar hi and low cut filters as the CE-5 specify theirs as:
    Tone Controls (Effects On)
    LOW Variable Shelf 12dB/Octave
    CW 800 Hz
    Center 350 kHz
    CCW 70 Hz
    HIGH Variable Shelf 6dB/Octave
    CW Flat
    Center 1.2 kHz
    CCW 660 Hz​

    when i contacted boss to find out, their response was:
    "Unfortunately, detailed frequency specifications for each of them are not published from BOSS Japan."

    um, yeah, thanks, Boss.
    that's why i was asking.... :rollno:

    perhaps one you out there knows?

    Nice. "Thank you for your email request, but unfortunately we aren't going to tell you the answer...."

    The MXR is kind of an analog clone of the CE-5 so I suspect the frequencies would be very similar if not exactly the same.

    On the original Boss Chorus and Flangers (the brown ones) I remember they advertised the cutoff at 800hz.

    On their multi/fx like the GT-10B I believe the highest cutoff you can dial in is 800hz, so Boss seems to like that number. That's all I can tell you.
