Electric Guitar Effect Pedal

Without deteriorating the original sound, the BOSS Compressor / Sustainer does his work unobtrusively but effectively (exactly what you would want from a good compressor). Peak levels are limited while the quiet passages are raised, serving the assertiveness (especially clean tones), and generating a more balanced sound. At extreme settings, a significant extension of the sustain is possible - suitable if you want to play a solo with cleaner amplifier setting. The CS-3 is versatile adjustable, noteworthy is the tone control that can compensate for a loss of height with heavy compression.

  • Particularly loud sounds will be lowered while very low raised to provide a uniform, fat sound
  • Controls: Level, Tone, Attack & Sustain
  • Power consumption: 11 mA
  • Power supply with a 9 V battery or a 9 V DC power supply (coaxial connection - negative inside - not included, Article Nr 108096)
  • Dimensions (W x D x H): 73 x 129 x 59 mm
  • Weight: 400 g

A very simply designed and set up effect, and thus very easy to use. Level knob is essentially for your volume control. Tone this has an effect on your low/high end frequencies. When rolled up high you can hear more high end frequencies and it gives a clicking sound that feels like you can hear the contact with the string. Attack / Sustain - these two knobs I use in co-operation to achieve various sounds. With the sustain knob on a low setting the pedal acts as a limiter, while rolling it up high increases sustain and the length the effect lasts for. Meanwhile I adjust the attack value depending on whether I'm playing clean / overdriven. When at a low value the pedal produces a crisper and cleaner sound, while it allows more Drive when rolled up high.

Conclusion: Awesome compressor!

I have this pedal for the last few weeks. It is yet again another great product from boss with its rigid and functional design. I use this pedal for live acoustic performance's and im still getting to grips with its functions even after a couple of weeks. There is no doubt it is quite a useful tool but you just need to know how to use the pedal and I have and will spend a lot of time ajusting it to get it just right. I do find it very useful when I am playing guitar and finger picking, and then limiting when strumming hard. A good little pedal with lots of options available. Its a four star pedal for me.
