Do you love your Boss CS-3? Then you need to go for this mod and you will not understand why you loved it before.
Here is a modification to the Boss CS-3 that I got from Monte Allums. I just couldn’t believe how great the sound was that I got out of my pedal!
I can just highly recommend this to any CS-3 owner. Gather up all the coins in your wallet, order the parts with the easy to understand instructions from Monte Allum and then get your screwdriver and soldering tool out. You’ll be awarded with this: The noise at high compressed levels is decreased a lot and the signal passing through is so much clearer!
Just one thing I wouldn’t do again: Don’t use the Super Bright White LED, you’ll burn your eyes out. Leave it with the original red LED unless of course you wear sunglasses on stage all the time.
All in all it took me about 2 hours to finish this mod.
You find more information about the mod-kit here: http://www.monteallums.com/pedal_mods.html, then browse down to the this section called ‘CS-3 Opto Plus Mod’. Even if this is not the mod you’re looking for – I can highly recommend the other Monte Allums mods to you!
P.S. let me know if I should do the mod for you. Contact me using this contact form below. You will need to send your CS-3 with or without the Monte Allums parts to Germany or Switzerland.
