I don't think it makes any difference whether you use a noise gate specifically for bass. Hell, I don't even know whether there are noise gates that are specifically for bass. Check out the boss NS-2 (I think that's what it's called) if you can.

A noise gate is a noise gate is a noise gate.

And the ISP Decimator has been called the greatest noise gate ever made.

BOSS makes a crummy tuner and a crummy noise gate, yet everyone talks about them.

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..

Drawmer probably make the best noise gates, but they are pro studio level. For a guitar rig i would go decimator rackmount, or for bedroom use get the pedal version. i've got the mxr smart gate which is also very good. depends on how much you have to spend my friend.

I can trade in a bass, an amp, and an pedal (about $175 combined). plus what ever follow up cash...

Active pickups might be a better option.

And then again, what if those noises are from your amp? If that's the case, a noise gate won't do a thing.

I was just wondering were abouts would you put a noise gate. One before and after your effects or one just after you fx's or were do they go.
Yamaha TRB1006
Fender MIA jazz bass
Hora Hybrid double bass
Hartke lh 500
Ev 606L
Epiphone les paul

depends. if it's noise from the pedals your using then at the end of the pedal chain. if it's from the preamp then in the fx loop.

Kramer Focus 3000
Ibanez ATK300
Rocktron Chameleon
Digitech IPS33B

I've got a question that'll probably help you out. I'm looking for a good noise suppressor, not a gate really, but a pedal that cuts noise down always, not just when I'm not playing. Any ideas on what I should be looking at?

I believe thats called a humbucker

And yeah, if your AMP is the one making noise, a noise gate/suppressor won't help. Perhaps check if your bass is shielded properly? If its not, that could reduce some of the hum.
