    Re: noise gate

    I've been using the NS2 for a couple of years now, palying high gain stuff and I've noticed no tone suck whatsoever. I am curious about the TC Sentry though, seems to be a more refined version of the same principle. Might wanna look into that?

    Re: noise gate

    Hey buddy.

    The great thing about that pedal is that it has hook ups that allow it to go in front of the amp and in the chain at the same time. That's the way I use it. So you knock out any noise from pedals in front of your amp, and noise from any gain, etc., in the FX loop/pre-amp.

    I actually have the G-String II pedal for my up stairs amp (5150 III 50 watt) and the rack version for my down stairs amp. (JJ 100) The rack version is phenomenal. Neither colors your sound at all as far as I can tell, and they can even compensate for volume rollback for cleans.

    Last thing, I had a Decimator I (their first version) and did not like it nearly as much as the II/G-String.

    hi, Jeff5
    the only problem i have is feedback when i switch overdrive pedals on, i do use delay pedals , so for best results where does the Decimator II G-String go in the chain, does it gate all my pedals or just the overdrives,

    thanks for you help,
    bluesfloyd,

    ISP here as well, good kit! Preserves more tone than the others I've tried and fit the bill excellently back when I was running a Metal Zone through my Boogie. A hint of reverb will put back in some of the tone that is lost.

    I have nothing bad to say about it, works flawlessly.

    The Smart Gate definitely needs to be in the loop; works much better that way.

    It does an amazing job of taming high gain WITHOUT sucking your tone away. I've heard the NS-2 does suck tone, which I can't accept.

    Re: noise gate

    I have an ISP decimator 2 currently, I am looking to try out the tc electronics sentry though.

    I have used the boss ns2 in the past but felt it tone sucked, at least the way I had it set up.

    I have a rocktron hush too, the old 2 button one though, I have heard the later ones weren't as good, I liked it but it took up a lot of space.

    I use an old Boss NF-1 occasionally. It can have smooth slopes like a suppressor or have a choppy, stuttering/sputtering gate effect, depending on how I set the 2 knobs.

    thanks for your help,
    bluesfloyd,
    MXR Noise Clamp works well for me, when I use a gate (not so often) - though I did do a slight mod to it to soften the "clamp" - see this thread

    https://www.thegearpage.net/board/in...or-me.1105998/

    I can attest to all of the descriptions of the Noise Clamp in there - not coloring sound, etc.

    I use a BOSS NS-2. I've also used an Alesis compressor/gate rack unit (in a 2-space underneath my pedal board)
