Here we have a vintage Boss CS-2 Compression Sustainer Pedal.  Made in Japan in 1984.  Black Label.  The pedal is one of the classics. Cosmetically, it is in good condition. Working perfectly but full of scuffs, scrapes and paint chips.   See photos for detailed condition..  We do not have the original box so you will receive the pedal only. There is one piece of velcro on the bottom. The pedal has been tested and is sounding great!    Thanks for looking an happy buying!

Boss CS-2 Compression Sustainer

The CS-2 compresses high-input signals while boosting low-input signals, giving you smooth and long sustain without degrading the quality of the original sound. The CS-2 uses a VCA (Voltage Controlled Amplifier) instead of the photocouplers used by the CS-1. The VCA’s speeds up the signal processing and makes the attack much faster compared to the CS-1. The Attack knob can however be used to control this.
