I just got my 6505 plus and 1960a marshall cab, sexxx

I KNOW i need a noisegate bad, and I was thinking of putting a distortion pedal in front of the amp to tighten things up a bit. (kinda like a compressor)

I found this behringer vt-999 "vintage tube monster" pedal for $35, its got OD and a noisegate. Would this possibly work to tighten up my sound and work as a good noisegate ?

I cant really find any demos or info on the pedal
