The Boss CS-3 Compression Sustainer Pedal is an awesome guitar effect stomp-box pedal by Boss.
At Haworth Guitars we love this Boss CS3 Compression Sustainer Pedal's classic Boss compressor tones with extreme sustain, the tone, attack and sustain controls, the 9-volt battery or AC adaptor options, durable construction and the five-year Boss warranty.
Here is what Boss say:
IMPROVES YOUR OVERALL TONE
The CS-3 Compression Sustainer pedal compresses louder signals while boosting lower signals, providing smooth sustain without degrading the original sound quality. This is the perfect pedal for guitarists and bassists who want to sound their best.
