I need a good noise gate. My choice are:
-ISP Decimator (G-string version or not?)
-Boss NS-2
-MXR M-135 Smart Gate
-Rocktron HUSH Noise Reduction
-Carl Martin Noise Terminator

which one's the best in overall?

NS-2 if you're on a budget.

ISP Decimator if you got more to spend.

By the way, should I get G-string version of Decimator, or the "normal" version?

Do you switch channels a lot? If so the G-String version might be better.

If you can get by with the classic Decimator, go for it.

I had the NS-2, didn't like it so I sold it.

Best noise supressor is an ISP Decimator, can't be beat. The Boss is ok, but not as good as the ISP imho.

heard bad things about the NS-2 and hush. nothing but great things about the Decimator though. so i'd say go for that one. don't be intimidated by the single knob though. lots of knobs for noise gates just complicate things.

Thats probably some of the best advice I've ever received on here.

Decimator all the way.

I got the "normal" one, and it's fantastic.
And i play a Valveking, and anybody else that owns one knows how bad they are with feedback/humming problems.
I also play a guitar with single coils, so i've ALSO got 60-cycle hum!

But the decimator takes care of it!

And also, it doesn't color you tone a bit. Unlike some things i've heard about the NS-2.

I have the NS-2 and it doesn't affect my tone AT ALL. So get either the NS-2 or the ISP decimator they're both good.

Well the best out of your list really is the G-string.

It eliminates hum and feedback from the guitar, and then you can also run it in the FX loop to cut off hiss from pedals and the preamp.

I have a NS-2 and it doesn't effect tone. But it doesn't really do it's job THAT well.

Look at the isp, I'm going to soon.

the decimator is definitely the way to go with noise gates

and avoid the hush. even if you can get it for cheap, just ignore it. colors your tone too much and it doesnt cut noise as well as the decimator does

get a cheap marshall... my MG15DFX has a button that simulates the sound of one of the expensive tube marshall amps.

It's only like a 40 dollar difference, might as well get the better pedal.

I find it funny how when a particular noise gate doesn't work well for a person they say it's because the pedal isn't good. Meanwhile, it's because their guitar is crap, or its not shielded properly, or their signal chain is a rats nest and hooked up wrong, or they have bad power from their outlet or they have something wrong with their amp.
Seen it millions of times.

But, lets just blame the pedals.
