So, being as I mainly use guitars with single-coils, I figure I ought to get a noisegate to fight off the cycle-60 hum. The only problem is, as I'm working on a recording setup, I can't really afford to spend much on a pedal right now, especially since I'm also planning to replace my wah.

A local shop however recently came into a pair of Boss NF-1's from the 1980's. These are selling for less than the modern NS-2's. Simple question; Is this just luck on my part or have noisegates done nothing but improve between now and the 80's?

my guess is the technology has gotten better but your just going to have to take your guitar and go play through it.


I would think noise suppression would be a lot better than it was in the 80's.

Yeah it's worth the extra cash to get a quality noise-suppressor made recently. The NS-2 is good but ISP Decimator's are hands down the best around.
