does it get rid of the static-y sh|t in the background?

because with the amount of distortion i use, i get lots of whitenoise sounding stuf

does a noise gate get rid of that? or what does it do?

Unless you get a good noise supressor like the boss NS-2, its going to suck your tone and sustain. But yes, good noise gates get rid of all that 'fuzz ****'

Noise gates stop hiss to an extent; they only stop the hiss entering your amp past the pedaltrain.

Noise Reducers, if used in the effects loop will eliminate just about all undesired hiss, hum, feedback from the system.

I prefer noise reducers to gates. Noise gates can kill sustain while noise reducers can suck tone. Either way, if you buy a high quality one, the side affects will be much weaker or non existant.

What are some more reducers? or more gates? I see the rocktron HUSH and the Boss NS-2. That's about all I see

I recommend the ISP Decimator as the #1 reducer, Rocktron Hush as second place.

Noise gates, MXR makes the only one I can think of off the top of my head.
