Product Description

The Boss CS3 Compression Sustainer Pedal is the secret behind countless top guitarists' tone!
Don't know what a guitar compressor is for? You're not alone. Half the people that own them don't either. But used right, that is, sparingly, the CS3 can give you that powerful, clean on-the-edge sound that stands out without distortion. It can also push your amp over the top and give your distortion endless sustain at much lower volumes. Put it first in line - sustain control low, Attack control up for starters, adjust volume to boost, and tone to taste. Experiment. An invaluable pedal.

The CS3 compresses high-input signals while boosting low-input signals, giving you smooth sustain without degrading the quality of the original sound. A range of effects from gentle compression to squeezed sounds is at your command. Designed for outstanding low-noise performance, the CS3 also provides EQ for precise sonic control.

Recognized by guitarists everywhere as the world's first name in compact effects pedals, BOSS makes sure you get the tone you want every time you play. Whether it be classic or hard rock, blues, jazz, country, funk or something new, wild and completely on the edge, BOSS helps you find your tone.

Beyond the killer effects pedals, BOSS is also constantly pushing the envelope to develop innovative multi-effects, rhythm machines and other easy-to-use instruments for musicians of all types. Put simply, BOSS gives you the great-sounding tools you need to spend more time making great music.

Exceptional Pedal
What is your opinion of this product?
There are few substitutes for that particular Compression Sustainer sound of Boss. From the most subtle to that extreme "popping" attack sound, this pedal can provide the whole gamut of tones expected from a compression sustainer pedal.

Get one
What is your opinion of this product?
I've played without compression for so long, I don't even know, so, I guess, it can be done. Now, it is one of two pedals that is always on-EQ being the other. This is a great pedal. If you have never used comp/sust, try it. You will want one(especially if you record), maybe not this one in particular, but you will want one and this one is fantastic.

would replace if lost or stolen :-)
Your general opinion of this product.
It works best with noise gate or noise suppressor . Or an EQ. Can sound brite or have a little hiss. But well worth the money.
Yes, love boss pedals.
Smooth .....can have small high hiss. You can control it by staying under 12:00
Good, looks like a boss
Its boss :-) mine is on a lot and still going.
