I'm looking at a NS-2 to kill the buzz I get at high volume with lots of gain. I play a Schecter Omen-6, and use a Peavey Valveking 112. Will the NS-2 kill my tone? Is there something better I can get at about the same price? Any help is appriciated.

I not totaly worried about the sustain, really.

If you're not intimidated by the price, I'd go with an ISP Decimator. It cleaned up my valveking really well.

i agree, the decimator is much better.

just google ISP technologies decimator, that should do it.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

At this point I'm leening more to the Decimator. Would Music123 be a reliable place to order it from? Maybe also get some pros and cons for both of them?

i got a NS-2 off ebay yesterday and ive got it after my distortion in the loop (im not entirely sure thats the right place) but im having trouble because its threshold doesent really account for a higher gain output from a metal pedal, and its very highest setting is just about enough to work properly. try and get a hold of one before u try

^it's works well as the last thing before you go into the amp. Like this:

guitar-->effects and shit-->decimator-->amp
#11
ok heres the deal the nt-2 is good (i use it with my 6505+ at i have my gain at 8 (im a gain ***** haha)). it cuts the noise out well. it might suck your tone if you put the threshold on full though. i don't and still get no noise. i was gonna get the ISP but the store didn't have it so i settled with the NT-2 and its still good. i would get the ISP though if you could find it.

you're running a distortion pedal in your amp's fx loop?

you need to run your effect from the send and return outputs on the NS-2.

so amp - input , guitar - output
cable from send to Tuner - distortion - chorus - etc - then back to return.

All buzz is eliminated then !

Yea, Music123 is reliable, I just got my decimator from them 3 weeks ago. And using it with my amp, it cleans it up nice and doesnt touch my sound, and doesnt even affect my sustain or anything really...

How high was the gain knob again ??
Tone is all ...... well probably 75%, in your fingers.
The rest depends on your wallet's thickness !!

Keep the faith, baby!!

question about the NS-2.

I heard it does the same as the TU-2, and can power other pedals via daisy chain. Is this right? I ahvent been to the store to check one out yet.
