« Noise gate looper »

Publié le 07/29/11 à 11:19
Boss has a pedal for every possible operation in music. They should be making a pedal that plays the guitar for you. Boss is like the iphone app store. When they say there's an app for that...well there is Boos pedal for that. 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 it.

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. This pedal can be hooked up in two different ways. You can hook it up in your regular signal chain using the normal input and output and then you can hook it up in the effects loop of the pedal to act as if it is a kill switch.

SOUND QUALITY

This Boss pedal will limit the amount of noise you will have through your effects chain. 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.If you play blues rock or a soft rock then you probably would never need a pedal like this.

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.

This pedal can act like a kill switch. If you run all of your effect in the send and return of this pedal you can step on the foot pedal and shut off all the sound from your rig. You can also run it like its supposed to when it will shut down the noise form the rig. All you do is set the threshold and and decay to how much and how quickly it will shut off. You will need to switch that up as you see fit from room to room outlet to outlet.

OVERALL OPINION

At new you can find these pedals for right around $115, which isn't bad for this pedal. I would recommend everyone who regularly gigs to have one of these pedals because the noise from room to room will affect you rig each time and it can be needed if you have high gain in your tone.
