I recently bought a rocktron hush pedal for my randall rg50tc. when the pedal is off and my distortion is all the way up, my amp makes an annoying buzz noise. When the pedal is on and the distortion is all the way up, it makes an annoying PSSSSSHHHHHH noise. (which is only annoying at high volumes).

Anyway I was wondering if this is how all noise gates work or if it is just the rocktron, and would a higher quality noise gate fix my problem?

If by "clean" you mean "get a finger right up in there and do a good bit of spelunking" then i guess "at any given opportunity" is my answer.

Did it leave a slop of paint all over your amp? Because the pedal version is known to color tone.

Other noise reduction systems are known to work better, specifically the stuff from ISP (the guys at ISP actually designed the Rocktron stuff but left to start a company that put quality first). The Boss is solid and works well, but will still color your tone slightly.
