Dexter Mods Boss CS-3 Compression Sustainer ‘Wool Press’ Mod

Boss CS-3 Compression Sustainer

Boss CS-3 Compression Sustainer

Here’s a mod that a lot of my clients have ordered from me via email. It’s what I recommend every guitarist should have ‘always on’ as the first pedal in the chain after your tuner.

Let’s face it, the CS-3 is a dud out of the box. It was supposed to be an improvement on the CS-2, but like so many ‘new, improved’ things it failed to come up to the bar.

But that doesn’t mean you need to get rid of it.

The Dexter Mod Wool Press mod cleans up the noisy lo fi sound that is the CS-3. The mod makes the Boss CS-3 compressor deeper and richer with more bass coming through, but not too much, so you get a sound fuller and warmer with a tad more headroom.

A number of troublesome electrolytic cap are swapped for higher quality metal film to reduce the annoying background noise as well.

The Dexter Mods Wool Press mod turns an unusable pedal into a studio quality piece of kit.

This mod includes a WHITE L.E.D instead of stock red L.E.D and a brand new 9 volt battery.

The mod is guaranteed and if there are any problems when you receive your pedal back simply return to me, I’ll service it, send it back and refund your shipping costs.

Questions are welcome but please check the Dexter Mods FAQ here first.
