looking for a pedal version. $125 is a little out of my range. any other brands that are just as good?
#2
if there were cheaper alternatives, ISP wouldn't be selling anything

if you're willing to settle for something that's not as good for a cheaper price, then we can start talking

something like the MXR smart gate or the Boss NS-2 is alright for the price.

but really, i'd save up for the ISP... you'll probably upgrade to it later on anyway, so why bother buying a cheaper one now ?

The smartgate is actually quite good. It's not the Decimator, but it doesn't suck either. Avoid the boss at all costs.

Mind you, I don't think the smartgate is really that much cheaper than the decimator, so just wait until you can afford the ISP. I hate to say it, but you really don't have much of a choice here. The boss one is around $85 is you're desperate, but really it's a waste of your money.

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.

Dammit that's a lot of tone sucking. From this, leave the BOSS alone.

i didn't realise GG&A was joke-free.

That looks pretty sweet though. I'm kinda pissed i have the normal one now, though granted i have had the use of mine for about 18 months; that time would have sucked with no noise gate.

dude, totally take the wiring from your amp to the part that goes to the plug change the cables from 2phase and buy some 3 phase and you won't have the 60 cycle hum in the first place, and will not need any pedal to cut sound off to get the humm off, according to various electronics the ISP cuts some of your tone just not much but best any device like that could do, you can also get a plug adapter to get rid of the hum but pedals and that cost more than the phasing wireing

The pedal kills more then hum.. It kills hum, hiss, feedback and so so much more... Its a must in high gain applications.

the wiring changing, gets rid of all of that silly, gain just amplifies what you already have, and if you get rid of things beforehand, well you defeat it

Hmm might have to give it a go, the less noise the better especially when i want feed back squeels with no hum... But how much are the cables? Im running a pretty good amount of cables. Running guitar to the pedal board and pedal board to the amp then two cables for effect loop on my eq.

what do you mean? what wiring? you mean the power cord that plugs into the wall outlet? what's 2 phase, and what's 3 phase?

That G-String looks awesome, I never liked the idea of having to buy two pedals to get a really silent setup.

Is this a noise gate? Or does it simply clean your signal up? Someone on the HC reviews said you should add a noise gate in, but it sounds like the Decimator is one (by virtue of how it works).
i don't define myself by what silly groups i join.
