Boss: CS-3 Compression Sustainer

Purchased from: Music Bum

Sound — 4
Soundwise I'm giving this pedal a 2 because when I had it all setup and ready to go I noticed there was bearly a sound difference, it was just a little sound boost and very slight distortion, I guess it serves me right for not testing it out before I bought it. Very weak effects.

Overall Impression — 4
Overall this thing sucks. I've been playing for 2 years and I play all different styles of music and this doesnt suit any of them. I wish I would have tried it out before I bought it because if I did I wouldnt have it right now. If I lost it or if it was stolen I would definitely not buy a new one, part of me even hopes this gets lost or stolen. This was a huge waste of money.

Reliability & Durability — 8
Sure this thing is durable and dependable but I wouldnt use it at a gig without a backup, I wouldnt use it at a gig at all because there would be no point.

Ease of Use — 8
Ths pedal is very easy to use, it's used like a regular pedal just push down with your foot and listen to the difference, if you could notice a difference.
