Hi guys, my first topic here...
had somebody ever tried this pedal?



i need a noise gate on budget actually, and this pedal is around 30€ in Germany (almost 32 $)...

By the way, i play with TONS of gain..

Thx!

Murad_Alm Never used one. But you might be able to get a used BOSS NS-2 for that price.
I got mine around $30 us.

It's been a good gate for me. Also mutes the guitar and fx loop, but some fx loops are too powerful for it like my Orange or Soldano designed loops. So I just run it after my guitar but before my od and amp.

Might also get lucky and find a used MXR smart gate for a bit more.

With the gate being triggered by the direct guitar, and with the dirt in the loop, I ran 3 dirt pedals stacked and it handled the noise like a champ. Of course once the gate is open the noise will be heard. But it was just to see what it could take.

I bought this pedal on Aliexpress, and I was surprised by the quality, it cuts a little bit of signal; As every noise pedal does, you also lose sustain on longer notes (easily solved by turning it off if you want to sustain a note for a long time) if you use it in moderation it cuts out all noise without sacrificing the sound of the instrument. I already had the MXR NOISE CLAMP M195, and it did not solve my problems with microphonies, that for the 23 dollars spent was very worthwhile and decided definitively
