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.

SOUND QUALITY

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.

OVERALL OPINION

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.
