    A threshold knob, another decay. A final knob can switch to gate or mute mode.

    USE

    Directly developed for guitarists that little gate is very easy to use. It sets the threshold and depending from the background sound is used, taking into account the time that it will block the signal.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Nothing to say about that is transparent.

    OVERALL OPINION

    As I have long asked what pedal noise gate buy, between the BOSS NS-2 cheap, especially used, and the ISP Decimator (but in this case that the V1, V2, the Gold? ) I give you my opinion after buying the BOSS NS-2 and three days of testing, it can be used to indecisive.
    So on my system behind Wampler Hotwired (double OD pedal and distortion) and CUSTOM SCREAMER home Techniguitare (OD) when I clicks OD and distortion hotwired the NS mode 2 Threshold reduction in third and Decay 0 it's perfect, no change in sound and zero noise!
    Same thing with the OD OD Hotwired + custom screamer.
    If I clicks all for the sound of death that kills (bodybuilder donf with harmonic everywhere) in the same position there is a small bit of noise you can hear when I stop playing, not really a problem for I think we should push the NS-2 to more than half (almost three quarters) to find the perfect silence. Here you listen carefully you may realize that you lose a little bite so acute in sound but really must compare / OFF to realize.
    After I tried pushing the NS-2 background (Decay always zero) where we eat a little sharp, but you have to have the stuff that makes a lot of noise to get there.
    So I would say that with the stuff pretty clean the NS-2 is just fine, no need to spend more.
    I do not put 10 because in these entrenchments she eats some of his, but I was impressed with the cleaning action of this pedal MR Clean!
    The only other noise gate I've used before is the one built into my Rocktron Chameleon (Hush old version) that was used to clean her after my machine Cream H & K tube preamp that was quite loud, it worked well too but version 2 OD pedal behind this distortion and MS-2 small price (used anyway) is a bargain.

  • Very helpful ally against single-coil hum

    Boss NS-2 Noise SuppressorPublished on 10/06/14 at 11:43
    I love my NS-2. Single-coil pickups (IMHO) have a purer sinusoidal waveform than humbuckers since a humbucker has two rows of pickups which are slightly out of phase but then combined. However, single-coils are noisy (60-cycle hum from lights, etc.). What to do? NS-2! Techy point: the unit can be noisy (less effective) with some power supplies so be careful about that (see below).

    UTILIZATION

    nobs are a little mysterious but not really a problem. I use it so my soft passages are free of 60-cycle hum. Ever hear Buddy Guy live? Quiet passages can be real attention getters.

    Mainly 2 "Strat" clones: both single-coiled ChordBenders, one in Nashville tuning (which I think of as "mandolin sound" & just have to use as sonic spice).

    OVERALL OPINION

    Boss regulates the price but some NS-2 dealers offer free stuff (like a power supply that actually gets along with the NS-2) so include “free” when you Google for where to buy one. The knobs control a lowest usable volume & once your signal falls below that you get silence so balance that limitation with noise control. Very sturdy. My effects board has a noise controller but the NS-2 is much better.

    I did not quite understand what the purpose of the decay knob either. By using it I found that it reduces the threshold noise suppression, so I think there is a subtlety here to exploit.
    Otherwise, it's pretty simple, just put amp and pedal in the effects loop, turn the knob to find happiness and then voila. For my part, I put the wha-wha outside the effects loop (between the guitar and NS2) have found that it was a strange noise in the loop. Then, matter of taste, but I put chorus and phaser between amp and noise gate. I put only the overdrive and preamp in the effects loop.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Turning the knob and presto, noise interference disappear. However, it must make a compromise between the light and saturated, but generally does not distort the sound. Only clear sound when the threshold is beyond 5 (but this is already enough for a good distortion).
    Attention, it does not make miracles, do not believe we will be able to reproduce riffs cowboys from hell as dimebag darrell, but it does its job very well. Once we stop playing, no sound.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I hear a lot from it and then the boss NS2 is a bad pedal, the ISP decimator is much better blah. Anyway, luckily the ISP is much better given the price difference! So for the price / quality ratio, I suggest NS2 as boss noise gate economic. It does not work miracles, but does its job very well (which is more or less to remove noise) without distorting the sound, which is more than satisfactory for me.

    I also have a SansAmp GT2 and pedals Nova System that integrates OD and distortion. Now I sometimes likes to combine the preamp to get other sounds without the NS-2 would be impossible, too dirty, direct feedback: p

    OVERALL OPINION

    This is my first pedal noise reduction. I used a little over a month and wonder how I could endure all this cooking for so many years, the gain in comfort is huge, both for me and for the public ^ ^

    WHAT I LIKE:
    - I do not know if it is certified "true-bypass", but personally I have not noticed any significant change in the sound of my guitar (tone / dynamic) since I inserted in my chain.
    - It does its job flawlessly, without cutting the end of the sustain
    - No need to turn on / off when switching from clean to saturated and conversely, active and forget ;)
    - Possibility to connect a string of supply for other pedals. That said, I have not tested this feature, so to see if it is not likely to generate buzz.

    WHAT I LIKE: nothing, not even trying

    On the value for money, do not they say that silence is golden? Well then it will cost you less than a bcp ingot. Personally I bought my NS-2 OCCAZ on Leboncoin 50 €, a top case.

    It seems that the NS-2 is the direct competitor the Decimator G-String, which has fewer adjustments and costs much more expensive. I have not tried so I can not be assertive, but I wonder how it could do better than the NS-2

    At least for me, the NS-2 gives me full satisfaction, so much so that if it scorched tomorrow (which I doubt PCQ solid famous), his little sister will replace pronto as it has become indispensable to me.

    Once NS2 engaged, more noise, it's happiness.
    Plus I do not hear any difference in sound. In any case, with my gear, it does not color my sound at all, and I will not lose in volume or dynamic.

    I tested the two assemblies history. I first tried without loop ns2, ns2 >> guitar and everything else after. It removes hiss and feedback, but it's still not bad hum at high volume.
    Once everything into the loop of the ns2, more noise, except a very small breath amp max. And I am very pleasantly surprised, is that it does not alter the sound of the amp, and I lose not yet sustain the threshold is 2/3

    short, I am very happy, this is the only boss of my pedal board but it's worth it .... when you know how to use correctly (though the manual is very clear on the use of the loop)

    The case is in the classic boss, indestructible and easy to fit on a pedalboard. 9v battery or power adapter with output 9 v to chain another pedal.

    UTILIZATION

    For use, it is almost plug-n-play, provided that we understand that this "effect" is used to mitigate or remove noise much. By no means a miracle will happen! Basically, the threshold will adjust the threshold beyond which the effect will pass the signal from the instrument and destroy all the buzz résiduels.Le decay determines the time that must be put in effect acting: either a very brutal is progressive with a gradual rise in his.
    On an amp with a clean sound with a guitar electronics correct, no need noise gate. With single coils and a little crunch to your amp, a very soft setting can improve things especially when we stop playing. On distortion free, it becomes essential at high volume on stage as the audience will take the buzz as much as music.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The noise gate is effective although I find its useful range relatively small and somewhat progressive. The best is obtained by passing the distos in the loop as recommended by Boss, the guitar is simply plugged into the "in" of the pedal.
    The sound is consistent with what is found in almost all competitors, a slight loss of high frequencies, so a noticeable slowdown of the spectrum and dynamics attenuated. Nothing insurmountable, this corrects the EQ. In reality, only a little more Decimator preserves the signal from the instrument. It's subtle, perhaps too subtle to be really critical when using a huge distortion that compresses and kills the dynamic design.
    I use it on my pedalboard NS2 to calm the ardor of my HTdual.Le NS.2 is permanently activated.
    Nothing to say! its clear, without touching anything, my signal is preserved and my sustain. In overdrive, it is equally effective cost of a slight loss of sustain acceptable, but high volume is very comfortable for your ears. With the gain on the bottom Blackstar, we understand the usefulness of the device, the signal is preserved but the game must be sharp and precise.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I repeat, if your aim is to play at moderate volume on a Stratocaster plugged into a JC120 or Twinreverb, the NS2 is not for you. Archi useless as all his peers!
    If you do the scene with a more muscular and chaining pedals important, I do not see how the impasse. Between models Rocktron Hush rack type, and very upscale mentioned above, this small Boss NS2 to its usefulness. So much so that since I got it, I had almost forgotten except to use his "Mute" function when I needed changes guitars on stage.
    However, I find this product quite expensive. It is disturbing to drop 82 euros for a fact ... that is not one.
