Well, I'm looking for a noise gate to cancel out noise. ( ) At the moment i have about £40 to my name; so i doubt I'll get much at the moment. But i get paid on the 7th of December and I've decided I'm going to look into a noise gate.

The only ones i could think of are, the ISP Decimator (sp?) and the Boss NS-2. I can't get my hands on an ISP decimator very easily and I don't like the idea of buying a Boss pedal because i hate the way they drain my tone.

So, what other noise gate pedals are there and which is the best one? (not including the decimator and the NS-2)

Also, say if you think i should still look at the Boss NS-2 and give me some reasons why you think this.



Oh, and price budget: I don't know, depends how much i work really, i don't want to spend any more than £200 though. £200 is the absolute maximum.

ISP decimator. The pedal, but the rack version is even better if you have the money.

Don't get the NS-2. I got it, and it added more noise that it took away. That, or I had to turn it up so high my playing got a swelling effect. Just don't get it.

The ISP Decimator is, hands down, the best Noise Gate/Suppressor you can get for the money, doesn't suck tone like 99% of the other pedals in the range do.

Oh, i forgot to say. I want it to be true bypass and It kinda needs to be available in England.

I'll read some reviews on the ones mentioned so far.

Hmm if its hum your trying to get rid of, maybe buy better cables and such, even the best of cables will produce a little hum with overdrive, there is no way of getting rid of this problem without sacraficing somthign else, if you get a noise gate, it just cuts of the sound when it reaches a level, if you play with alot of feel and want to maybe play soft and qiet you wont be able too sometimes, it will cut it off, id rather put money into setting up my pedal board with better quality cables, and spending the time to find where most of this noise is coming from, other than that deal with it.

The ISP Decimator is a noise suppressor I think, which means it removes noise, it's not a noise gate. Also, noise gates don't cut your sound too early if you set them up right (although if you have a LOT of hum they won't help too much).

It's not hum I'm trying to get rid of. I already have fairly decent cables as I hate cheaper cables. I use Planet Waves cables...
