    noise gate intended to remove all its parasite out of your amp (breath, buzz) lorqui you do not play.

    input (for the instrument) output (to go to the amp) and send / return for effects loop (send to your belongings go back pouis in return).

    UTILIZATION

    Config simple to adjust the threshold triggering threshold and decay for a sudden stop or fade out parasites (Me me the threshold is a 10h/11h) and decay to a minimum to give the impression that there is no unwanted noise coming out of your amp.

    reduction in off it and do anything it ON reduced.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Pedal can sound very colorful and is effective.

    I am a bassist and I have two speakers with tweet a little noisy and since I have a wireless system a boost pedal and a compressor and a preamp setting with plenty of attack (and therefore high) the breath becomes a bit too noisy.

    I come with the bike ... my little turn on and PAF .. nothing at all! happiness.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Good value for money although I would have liked a power supply that came with ... but she was doing her job wonderfully!

    Boss NS-2 Noise SuppressorPublished on 04/23/08 at 09:42
    This is a straight noise suppressor with really only one purpose: and that's to suppress noise ! I believe it is digital. It cannot be edited via computer. This is a floor pedal, so it is not rackable. This unit has an input and an output for going from the guitar to the rest of your guitar pedal chain then to the amp. However, it also has additional send and return inputs and outputs, which essentially turns your pedal rig into an effects loop. This unit is definitely most effective when utilized in this way.

    This is a straight noise suppressor with really only one purpose: and that's to suppress noise ! I believe it is digital. It cannot be edited via computer.

However, it also has additional send and return inputs and outputs, which essentially turns your pedal rig into an effects loop. This unit is definitely most effective when utilized in this way.

    UTILIZATION

    The general configuration/setup is simple. Sound/effects editing is easy. It's got two modes: one to mute your signal and the other is the actual noise reduction mode. It's got two knobs, threshold and decay. You need to tweak these two knobs to get the maximum, most effective noise reduction possible without compromising your tone and sustain, which the unit can do if you set the threshold too high. I bought this used, so I don't have a manual. However, I don't think it's necessary.

    SOUND QUALITY

    As said, this effect is for one thing and one thing alone. It is for noise suppression. It does what it does very well. It reduces hum, feedback, and other noise very well. I own a DOD Yngwie Malmsteen preamp overdrive pedal, and Yngwie himself will tell you that that little unit is noisy. When you put this pedal before the DOD in your chain, utilize the effects loop function. You can hear the wonderful sustain from the DOD without the annoying noise, as long as you don't set the threshold too high, thanks to the Boss Noise Suppressor.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've been using this unit since the beginning of this year. I love it's noise suppressing capabilities. It's not the most glamorous pedal, but I feel it is an essential component of one's pedal chain. I don't know what I did before I bought this unit. The only thing I don't like about it is that it kills your sustain if you set your threshold too high. This is unfortunate, because the higher you can set your threshold, the better the noise suppressor effect. If you can be successful at finding a happy medium between these two factors, you will also be happy with the unit. I checked out rocktron's version, but nobody swears by their noise suppressors as much as people do with their Boss noise suppressor. The pedal is kind of pricey in my opinion, but since it is so essential to your rig, it is money well spent. I have no regrets about buying this unit. I needed it, plain and simple, and it does its job well.
