iamqman's review"Good sustain"

Boss CS-2 Compression Sustainer
Boss made its second compact pedal edition to the compressor family in the 1981. This was the the update from the CS-1 which was a fantastic compression on its own. The CS-2 used a VCA (Voltage Controlled Amplifier) rather than the photocouplers used by the CS-1. The VCA's speeds up the signal processing and makes the attack much faster than the CS-1.

This was a great pedal back in the day. There are many better pedals out in the market today that would eliminate the need of this pedal.



UTILIZATION

Specifications

Controls: Level, Attack, Sustain
Connectors: Input, Output, AC Adaptor
Current Draw: 4 mA (DC 9V)
Weight: 400g (15 oz.)
Input Impedance: 1MOhm
Recommended AC Adaptor: ACA Series


SOUND QUALITY

This second edition to the Boss compression family saw some needed update changes. The attack control knob replaced the mode switch from the Boss Cs-1. This allowed the user to dial in the needed response time the compression would be there. When using different sounds like clean and distortion this can be a handy tool.

This pedal is great with a nice delay and an Ibanez TS9 pedal. You really allow those delay repeats to jump out of your amp and into the mix very well with this compression pedal. These are just perfect for giving a little boost of clarity and volume and keeping things under control. It also allows you to get a better sustain from the tone of your amp and any effects that you have going on in your patches.

OVERALL OPINION

These pedals were discontinued long ago right about 1986. You can find them on the used market but I have no idea what the going rate for one of these can be. I would suggest picking up the Keeley compression pedal. Probably the most accurate and best compression pedal known in existence. This is a good pedal for tone but not for functionality anymore. Technology has now given us a boost in how these pedals operate.

Which is thus constantly wanting to make us bladders for lenternes and justify us the rarity of the object ... or worse, that this object is used by David Gilmour (of which I am an admirer) if we want to have the sound while qu'intervenait is known about its effect Pete Cornish veritable "wizard of electronic" by replacing the electronic components and some by the fact personalizing it so the sound !dropoff window I do not speak of "armada" revolving around the hardware and even less of rgy with all that it entails sound treatments. Rgy held strictly forbidden even to refer to Specializes press, and can be happily otherwise it would still heavily loaded with meaning that speculators THE SAME device was in a rack! And as we say so often even if it has the same guitar BRASSENS, or even if we take the BRASSENS guitar ever we play like BRASSENS and GILMOUR it's worse because it YYA the electronics and more, and rather than the singer rather spend our instruments and we have our personality .........
