Hi Guys,

Ive been using a Boss noise gate pedal for a while in conjunction with a Bugera 6262 head. The pedal works great although im switching over to rack mountable gear - do you have any sort of ideas as to a good rack compressor / gate that you know of? I'm not that clued up on rack gear (and neither are most of the people I ask in shops! ) Needs to be within a sensible budget.

Cheers!

i use a MXR Smart Gate pedal and i have the rack version of it in my rack rig.

i paid about $180 for it new about 4 years ago. the pedal version is about $102
im not sure if they still make the rack mount version anymore, but im sure you could find it on ebay for cheap. the best gate ive ever used, pedal and rackmount

MXR only makes the Smart Gate Pro now, which costs about $399...a bit steep

Rocktron makes a decent noise suppresser/gate. the HUSH Pro and the HUSH Super C are good rack gates. between $199-249, but can get cheaper on ebay

whats yo budget man?

And on that note, there's the ISP Decimator G rack unit (I'm pretty sure ISP grew out of Rocktron, at least I think that's what the ISP guys that we bought our ISP powered speakers at my job told us).

Budget is gonna go a long way here. And if you're looking for a compressor along with a gate, all that's really been suggested here are gates. There's pretty standard issue DBX Compressor/Limiter rack units out there.

the BBE sonic maximizers are pretty good to get that compressor feel to it

but +1 on the dbx compressors as well

i heard Behringer makes some rack mount gates and compressors and what not..but havent tried them or know anything good/bad or about them.
