All the reviews on UG say that the Boss NS-2 is good for cutting feedback. I don't know much about noise supressors but I do know that the single coil pickups on my J-Bass have a VERY annoying hum. Would the NS-2 get rid of that hum or is it just for feedback control?
#2
It would, but the ISP decimator is miles better.

This chick that looked like shrek ****ed me while I was passed out on xanax. I screamed when I woke up.

But is a noise suppressor THE tool to use for the hum on single coils or is there something else made just for that?

My biggest argument against the NS-2 is that while it does do a respectable job at noise suppression, it also has noticeable tone coloration when compared to other similar products. Personally, I'm interested in seeing the new version of the ISP Decimator pedal.

But you already have the new version of the pedal. You have the rack mount, so the pedal is basically trying to imitate the rack version in pedal form from what I can tell.

ISP Decimator, I am always saving for it, because it is the best pedal suppressor you can by.

The Boss sucking a fair bit of tone is the problem.
ISP Decimator is the answer.

The tone suck is not really noticable for live use man, only recording is it really noticible

Disagreed unless the isp also has an effects loop to cancel noise from the other pedals

If you look at what pro musicians use, they mostly use the NS-2 if they have a gate in their rig. It is a good pedal, the ISP may be better, but it is also more expensive, and to be honest, when I use my Boss, I dont hear a tone coloration at all.

Exactly if anything it cuts some of that nasty high end when you have to crank

OK.

Just wondering if any of you guys have actually played the ISP and NS-2 side by side?
#20
^^ i have and the Isp, if running a overdrive pedal in the same loop doesn't cut the overdrives noise like the NS2

^ Oh okay.

IMO
If you wanna cut all noise, get the NS-2.

If you still want notes to ring out full, get feedback when you want it. But not have no noise when you stop playing get the ISP.

Also mine kills anything i want it too( all noise). But if you do kick on the overdrive your going to have to re-adjust it to take away the noise the overdrive pedal brings into the mix. Most adjust to the overdrive and just leave it there or you can deal with the excess noise if you just kicking into a solo or too.. Its up to you... Basically anytime you add more gain to the mix its gonna add more noise then your threshold setting is alotted.
