I try to use znr in zoom ms50g after my distortion pedal in the pedal chain.
I find that the threshold must be set high as above 20 to reduce noise.

Can the ZNR really be used in the pedal chain?

If the threshold at 20+ does the job, I'm not sure what the issue is.

Don't worry if it seems a high value to you -- if it reaches those higher values, is because they can be needed by some people.


I have the threshold on mine at 12, but it's for a whole patch (after a booster and a high-gain amp modelling). I never tried running it after one of the dirt pedals on my pedalboard.

Thank dude~~~
It work well and only need low threshold when the distortion from the zoom ms50g itself
So, I feel strange why it need high threshold while it is after the distortion in effect chain.
(when znr off, the distortion in ms50g and in the effect chain have almost same noise I think)

It's not strange at all, since the noise is coming from an external source and not from another effect in the MS-50G itself.

Try it before buying with your whole setup.
Your distortion pedal might be producing so much noise that you find that even with a standalone noise suppressor you have to set the threshold so high that it also "eats" a bit of your tone.

Out of curiosity, which distortion pedal are you using?

Your best bet will be to take your guitar and Wampler pedal (and your amp too, if possible) to a store and ask to try a noise supressor to see if you can reduce the noise without "eating" your tone.
