This is the first Compression/Sustainer pedal released from Boss. It builds on the lagacy of the Roland AS-1. Like all compression pedals it reduces the output of sounds over a set threshold relative to the strength of the input signal, making levels consistent and improving sustain. In the CS-1 this is done by means of photocouplers. The later CS-2 and CS-3 used VCA's (Voltage Controlled Amplifier) to create the same effect. The sound of the CS-1 is thus very different from its successors. The CS-1 was sold from July 1978 to February 1982. Black Label made in Japan. This effect unit is available in store at Guitar Village Frankston 50 minutes south of Melbourne.
