Finally, my dad has agreed to get me something for my GCSE results.


So, which one do you think I should get first?


Oh, another question. Would a noisegate reduce the sustain of my guitar?


Thanks

Get the Vox Wah.

Much more fun than a silly old noise gate, which you dont really need unless you have lots of gain/hum.
#3
I get a little bit of noise when I turn the amp up. I'd like it quiet...


BTW, Can a noisegate reduce the noise the pick makes when picking the strings?

it all depends on how you set the gate, if you set it with a slow attack time it will remove some of your pick noise because the gate will take longer to open. also it will cut off your sustain as soon as your signal drops below the threshold.

Damn...


So it will just be


Deeeeeeeeeeeeeee eee eee eee de And that's it?

unless your sustain is rediculous and goes on forever without losing volume. as soon as it gets as quiet as you have the gate set to, the gate will close and the signal will be attenuated, not to say completely cut.

Ok cool thanks.

Noise gates aren't really that necessary sometimes. Just get a wah for now and when you have extra cash laying around think about getting a noise gate.

Besides, you're going to have much more fun with the wah.

noise gates are not entirely necessary, and if you have to get one, don't get a BOSS one, it'll just suck your tone dry

I voted the wah anyways.

What kind of noise do you get anyways? what gear do you have and what piece do you suspect is making the most noise? do you use a lot of gain?

Well, 40w tube at Gain 9 Bass 7 mid 4 treble 9 = NOISE!!!


It's fine when the volumn is low. But when I turn it up, I get a little bit of noise, nothing serious but I just want it to be super quiet. Which noise gate would you recommand?

It might just be the sound of the tubes cooking when you crank it

if you were to get a noise gate, I'd recommend MXR Smart gate or an iSP Decimator (a bit more expensive, but apparently they're the holy grail of noise suppressors)
#13
Thanks. I'll keep that in mind.

But as you said, Im likely to get the wah first.
