Noise reduction pedal is like an attenuator right? Because my local store caries a lot of Boss Pedals (and nothing else ), so I'm just wondering, because I kinda need one.

no. they kill noise, not volume/ wattage.. people say they kill tone, but i think those are people who think theyre cool or are audiophiles. i can say for sure the ns-2 kills some tone. never tried the decimator or the mxr though

the G String has the same brains as the Pro Rack G, only single channel.

The regular ISP pedal has one input, one output, and it filters noise directly.

The GString has 2 ins and 2 outputs. One set of I/O is used for the loop, and you plug the guitar directly into the input of the second set of I/O. It uses the original guitar signal coming in to track against the signal it's filtering at the fx loop. This allows it to be very effective at removing only noise, and it also allows you to put pedals like boosts after the GString and before the amp input where they can most effectively boost the front end of a preamp. Any noise from the pedals can be removed at the fx loop using it this way.

If the amp doesn't have an fx loop, the 2nd set of I/O can be used as it's own loop, so it can still track a clean guitar signal against what is noise introduced by the pedals. This way operates similar to how the NS-2 works. The filtering is superior to the NS-2 however.

That's pretty much their main purpose - eliminate hum and feedback...

The G String has a set of send/return so it can be used in front of your chain and in your effects loop.
