Boss NF-1 Noise Gate
Boss has a pedal for every possible operation in music. They have effects pedals for just about anything and everything that you can think of and have done versions and new editions of a lot of those pedals. If you can't find something that you need I am almost sure Boss has a pedal for ti. Boss is like the iphone app store. When they say there's an app for that...well there is Boos pedal for that.

This pedal is simply a noise gate. Not too much to talk about other than it limits the amount of noise one would experience in their guitar rig. The reason for a pedal like this is to give guitar players a limiter on how much noise they will experience in their signal chain.



Controls: Sens, Decay
Connectors: Input, Output, AC Adaptor
Current Draw: 3.9 mA (DC 9V)
Weight: 400 g (14 oz)
Input Impedance: 470kOhm
Recommended Load Impedance: 10kOhm or more
Recommended AC Adaptor: ACA Series


A noise gate will limit the amount of noise one would experience through their effects and signal chain. If you play blues rock or a soft rock then you probably would never need a pedal like this. This is for the guys who use a lot of distortion and possible some extra overdrive peals for high gain purposes. If you don't use high gain then you probably don't experience a lot of noise in your tone and signal chain. For those who do use a lot of gain and possibly some high output pickups would need something to tame all of that noise. I have found that a noise gate also helps when playing gigs in different places where they might not have good electrical outlets and you get some added noise. Possible the wiring is off and so extra noise is introduced into the line. A noise gate would help in that situation just to have in case you ever run into that problem.


These pedals were made from 1979 to 1988. So they have been long discontinued for a time now. So the used market is the only way to go now. I would suggest a new edition of a noise gate there are much better ones out there now.

Boss NF-1 Noise Gate
Noise gate that's all.

Analog technology.

no possibility of editions.

audio connectors in jacks.



Ts configuration as simple as can be seen in the photo.
Senssibilite a button and a decay.


The effect is effective.

For use with guitar or bass. (It's happened to me to use it my wholes beginning,
insert a mixer channel blowing .systhm D)


I use it for a very long time using.
what I like least is that there is no light indicating it is in action
only one stop light walk.
I do reminds me of the price.
I would do this choice more actuelement.

Boss NF-1 Noise Gate
Noise gate (door noise) analog
2 buttons (sensitivity and decay)
an input / output jack
light up according
connector for a 9V adapter
9v battery cover


Trs easy to use, the button "Sense" appears trsdlicat dose in the first quarter (may be it comes from my pedals).


The effect is effective below a certain threshold adjustable with the "direction", the pedals "closes the door" to the sound speed Determines with the "Decay".
It is not a noise suppressor, the free personal portfolio no noise but the sound turns off the sound when no note is heard.


In my rig for a week, purchase of Af 35, it fit for purpose in my work environment "polluquot;!
Helpful but not essential!

Boss NF-1 Noise Gate
Old model of gate nose


Lai I made because I could not find OCCAZ of ns2 and urgent c'tait


And what a silent CHRE more ...


Nose very simple gate, apparently it's an old MODEL few people know!
very effective, I bought it to cut the buzz / feedback of HK triamp and my ESP horizon. I do switch faade is to say directly after the scratch
of happiness ... in addition, I torque my gmajor noise gate (not powerful enough, too much loss of momentum), which is located in a loop effect.
then we can send the proper species of brutal metal with nothing bronchus. jai the impression that the volume knob is still in closed position.

is the class, redcouvre cleanliness of his game, as the pedals carrment is transparent.

I put 10 because I did pay only 35 and I think I'm not ready for me ... Sparer
