Boss Compression Sustainer
The CS-3 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 CS-3 also provides EQ for precise sonic control. For a mellow sound: this setting is ideal for solos in ballads or mellow songs. Add a chorus effect for even more depth.
This setting balances the volume of each string for smooth chord accompaniment. For thick, rich sounds: add Chorus and Delay after the Sustain effect. This setting is good when playing sustaining chords.
