Boss CS3 Compression Sustainer

Recommended Posts

A lot of trial and error once the basis principles are understood...

 

The Boss is a good compressor for guitarists

 

Many electric players have one on all the time

 

Electro acoustics can benefit too...smooths out that piezo harshness

 

And the vol boost or cut is very useful...

As mentioned, it is important to experiment...every player has their own objectives...

 

Obviously 'Level' and 'Tone' are outside issues...so start at mid both...

 

I tend to use low Attack ( 0-3 ish )

 

Sustain around 3 for acoustic...3 and upwards for electric (an acoustic will feedback with high sustain settings)

 

With careful settings things become natural and part of the overall sound...

Thanks Versatile, when you say 3 do you mean 3 as 1 to 10 Mini to Max ( so about 11 o'clock) or 3 on the clock?
