What is the difference between the Decimator and the Decimator G String?

Technically the regular one goes before your amp.

The G string goes into the effect loop.

The G string goes into the effect loop and before your amp.


Fixed.

Basically...the regular one can go in one place...in your effects loop to kill amp noise, or in front of the amp to kill noise from guitar, effects, etc. The g-string version can go in both places at the same time.

Yes you can have the G String before your amp, but its most efficient in the FX loop with the cross wire configuration so it can sample your signal before it cuts the excess noise out.

Why bother buying the G String if you're gonna only use it in front of the amp. You can, but it'll be rather illogical as seeing the regular one costs less than the G String.

Thats my point....don't buy the G-string unless you're going to run it in BOTH places...otherwise you could get off by using the regular one.

If that is the case, yes.

It just does not make sense to run a G String before your amp.

It actually doesn't make sense NOT to run the g-string before your amp...if you want to reduce amp noise, just run the regular decimator in your fx loop. You essentially run the gstring before your amp and in your fx loop...thats the whole point of the pedal...your signal path goes into the pedal in the guitar in jack...then the guitar out goes out to your amps input jack. This kills any noise from other pedals, your guitar, your cables, etc. Then the dec in/out jacks on the pedal are used for the effects loop on your amp to deal with feedback, hum from your amp. Thats the point of the pedal...it reduces noise in both places.
