Boss CS-3 Compression Sustainer Modifications
Boss may not be synonymous with boutique tone, but the Fromel Supreme mod will take your harsh, tubby CS-3 compressor and push it into new (and desirable) tonal territory. The Fromel modded CS-3 adds clarity to chords and presence to single note lines. With snappy pick attack and twangy, in-your-face sustain fueled licks, the CS-3 mod is like giving your tone a bear hug without suffocating it.
This is not called the supreme mod kit for nothing. Included are detailed instructions, including photos, and all the parts to turn your CS-3 in to an incredible tone machine. No longer will your tone be weak and thin and full of hiss; instead the Supreme mods add richness and depth, increased headroom, better bass response and full body to the signal. The result is a compression that sounds natural, clean and warm.
· 1n34a Germanium diodes replace the silicone diodes in the signal path producing a warmer tone
· Every cap in the signal path is replaced with high quality Panasonic Film Caps for better tone and less noise
· Capacitor values are corrected to produce a rich full tone, and noise free operation.
If you have basic soldering skills and can follow directions, this is an easy project. Don't pay hundreds of dollars for a boutique compressor when you can upgrade your CS-3 for $19.95. I can also install the mods for you; please contact me for details.
