    A threshold, a decay reduction and a switch / mute -> rgler is simple.
    As a bonus effects loop.
    We ask no more a noise gate, especially pedals.
    The sound seems to me absolutely ALTR by the effect, except on long high notes, but in this case the just cut it back and APRS.
    In any case for pedals is perfect.

    UTILIZATION

    In terms of rglage with my config is plutt the threshold which I do not touch (at max all the time), I put a can decay less than half what I can keep a good limitation when I string my plate while being able to play without the pedals acute "food" sustain.

    I enter my guitar in and I go out live on the amp, I do not use other effets.La pice or I play is Boure parasites disappear when I turn the pedals instantanment .
    As for the effects loop, I use him is nice: I plug the send to my tuner (just a little korg bte 20), and so I can tune in 2 my vrifier / 4 and nothing unplug. I knew something was using these jacks l.
    In résumé in 30 seconds and walk it rgl, So just a little BMOL the threshold seems to me that not enough prcis, but given the previous ones comments dpendre of gear used to.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Prcis As above, my sound does not change a bit with or without the pedals on this point is perfect.
    I use a BC Rich Jr. V with a Bill Lawrence L500 XL micro. I go out live on the amp that is either a bandit 112 (home) a triamp (in BPS). I use it mostly on the 112 because I have virtually no parasites in the rehearsal room, and the pedals can not mitigate the force of the amp.
    At the level of losses in the high, I tried with guitars of lesser quality is actually obvious. by JRV cons with my, you really have to go on his notes for the decay of food, and in this case it was time to cut the effect and hand APRS. A small point less because you have a big win to avoid losing too much quality sound.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for years, the first noise gate that I bought and I have not tried other, still to make up for parasites and feedback when I play high level. I buy the closed eyes. the price is right trs gnrale compared the quality of the product. CAUTION: Use absolute power with BOSS type. I tried the traditional power supplies is crappy trs.
    J'enlve just one point to the doc too lgre threshold and that serves me anything because I have to put it to the max for walking.

The only regret of the manual: no rglages suggrs. But since it is easy to configure is not as bad as a. You can use the NS-2 to power other pedals! So if you have 10 pedals, no need to buy adapters or 10 to change the batteries without stopping!

    SOUND QUALITY

    The Boss NS-2 is effective and enlve compltement background noise. I use it with my Fender Mexican Fat Start, Fender Princeton Chorus My, my Digitech Metal Master and my Dunlop Crybaby GCB95. Do not try to use it with a wah-wah in the loop of the NS-2 if the sound PForm. That's a I do not use the effects loop. In my string of pedals, I place the end argle the problem (even if I was told that his place n'tait not the end of each only). But as the ct of its use as food or noise gate is an effective PDAL trs. I strongly advise you.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have now for eight months. As I said, she does a good job trs. The least are for use with the wah-wah. I must admit that I did not test other pedals before buying. I tried it, it suited me, I bought it. $ 50 CAN, c'tait an opportunity not to be missed! Ms. New is a buying pedals! Simple configuration, manual clear functionalist supply, efficient use, not CHRE ... What could be better? You must buy it!

    This pedal is a gear or noise suppressor. There are four outputs: an input for the guitar, an amplifier and output to the input and output of the loop.

    UTILIZATION

    It's super simple! You turn a knob to change the type of noise suppression and is used in two other efforts to settle its Gise.
    The manual is interesting because it explains how to mount the loop (in parallel).

    But here, the sound is met perfectly! This pedal does wonders!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I then in April 2006 and I am really happy! At first I hesitated with the Rocktron Hush but I preferred this one, I do not regret my choice! In addition it is a gift from members of my group who had tired of hearing my amp hiss all the time! This pedal is ideal for live and repeat them!

    (Everything has been said)

    UTILIZATION

    The setting is very fast (three knobs in all) and clear enough. Personally I use it very binary, a pot-bottom, the other to zero! =)
    I use it as a gate and not to cut the sound completely. For very precise rhythm parts (I play the metal) is a real treat.

    SOUND QUALITY

    I've never been disappointed with it. There are just some difficulties to control the feedback is activated when this can be an advantage or a disadvantage.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for two years, both on stage and in repeated and never let me down. The bad thing is, as usual with BOSS: the price (hence the 9)! But the game is worth it, I would definitel…

    So I did as every pro that uses it (Limp Bizkit, Static X, ok I like but its not what pro!) I wired the pedal as a conventional noise gate and the result is frankly in the sound is fully respected and the breath completely reduced.

    I put five in the history of the loop boss advises us.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Fully respected and his breath disappeared.
    This pedal is at the top.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Overall the scope of the loop of the ns2 I find it totally rotten, the scope of reduction in bypass and mute because I also voi no interest to bypass the pedal she eats nothing in his totu.

    on the other hand in its most extremely simple it is fully effective and the height of what may have to wait.

    I have not found a default by such crap gadget boss and who has added my eyes are useless, and finally I choose to do it again without hesitation at all.

I did not esseyer Equipment in with really really bad because maybe in this situation it be expedient pourais effective but personally I have not been filled

    OVERALL OPINION

    I bought this pedal and I used it only 2 weeks! The only thing I like the NS-2 is that it can power your other pedals through the Boss NS-2. What I like least? Almost everything! I do not see it change much with the MT-2 that does not sound even when not well. I do not think it's worth the price, you should change your mind off pre-amp for a more beautiful is that does not contain background noise rather than pay ($ 130 Canadian), about 84 euro, for only hope for something better. I do réacheterais EVER! It was like throwing money in the trash ....

    - 3 knobs => treshold (intensity reduction), decay (reaction time for reduction) and choice of reduction or mute function (the mute does not serve me)

    - Power supply with a 9V battery and then by sector

    - Ability to power other pedals Boss with a cable (pcs20a) and a power supply boss (only if it adds psa series of feedback)

    UTILIZATION

    The principle of the effects loop is rather complicated at first but got used to it quickly.

    There are two ways to plug this pedal: Either as explained in the manual, either by putting the end of the loop (my favorite method)

    The principle of the effects loop is rather complicated at first but got used to it quickly.

    There are two ways to plug this pedal: Either as explained in the manual, either by putting the end of the loop (my favorite method)

    As for the settings is very simple.

    on the other hand I noticed a very slight loss of sustain when you put everything in depth but you really have an ear to the amp!

    The manual is very clear but I do not like the assembly is explained, but hey to each his own!

    SOUND QUALITY

    The Boss NS-2 is very effective indeed, with my pedals (Boss DS-1 Zoom multi-effects ...) there is a feedback monster! And when j'enclenche the NS-2, nothing!
    It removes even the feedback produced by the effects of my amp!
    My guitar is a Fender Jaguar with two microphones double, I have pedals that produce bcp of breath (such as DS-1) and an amp (Marshall MG45DFX which will soon be replaced by an H & K Edition Blue 60R) also made qiu of breath and as I said above, the NS-2 takes all.

    I am very happy with the results!

    OVERALL OPINION

    It has been almost a month since I have it.

    The + => Reduction excellent, intuitive adjustment, the ability to power other pedals (not just the boss!)
    The - => History of the loop, a little tricky at first but you can plug it and forget the loop and it works very well (even better with my setup)

    I had already tested a noise gate (zoom I think), he was doing his job, but a slight hiss persisted while with this pedal: NOTHING!

    The price / quality ratio is excellent, the price is not too high (or € 83 with Musicstore Thomann) and the result is excellent.

    I remake this choice without hesitation.
