Overview

So you love the bite, twang and snap of single-coil pickups, but can't stand the nasty hum that comes along for the ride.

The NR300 actually functions as two pedals in one. In Reduction mode, you can adjust the dedicated Threshold and Decay dials to keep all your tone and dynamics intact, but effectively eliminate hum from the picture. In Mute mode, the NR300 becomes a super-quiet on/off switch for your instrument.

Operation couldn™t be easier. The NR300 features two LEDs”one to indicate when it's activated, another to indicate when it's suppressing noise. You can power this hum killer with a 9V battery or our PSU-SB DC power supply (not included). And the top-quality on/off switch maintains absolutely noise-free operation.

Lose the hum, but hold onto your precious single-coil tone with the ultra-affordable NR300.

FEATURES

  • Effectively eliminate unwanted noise and hum without altering your tone
  • Designed to compete head to head with leading products on the market
  • Preserves the original attack and envelope while leaving your playing and dynamics intact
  • Dedicated Threshold and Decay controls plus a Mute mode for awesome flexibility
  • Additional Send/Return loop for noise suppression of external effect units
  • Status LED for effect on/off and battery check

When it came down to it, I wanted a noise reducer that fit my budget. Probably the most recommended is the Boss NS-2, which based on many a review, is probably the best out there. Even though money isn't exactly a major issue, I still wanted an affordable noise reducer to add to my board. The NR300 is your best bet in this situation.

Just looking at the controls/features, you can see quite the resemblance with the NS-2. The NS-2 has threshold and decay controls as well as a mute/reduction toggle (Sounding familiar, right?). The NR300 does a good job in meeting what I need with these features and with a comfortable price.

I only have a couple complaints regarding this pedal however. First is the build/durability. It is a plastic housing, so I wouldn't recommend this for traveling musicians where gear can sometimes be mishandled. I'm not aggressive with my gear, so I feel I can rely on it when I'm casually playing or at small venues.

Second is the placement of the power input. I try not to depend on batteries for my pedals so I usually daisy chain them. For this pedal, the power input is on the side next to the 1/4" input jack. My daisy chain cable has 90 degree inputs so it's not a huge issue, but I like to use couplers between pedals and it makes it difficult to connect my power supply to the pedal.

Overall, I say that this a good pedal to add if you're looking for an affordable noise reducer. It may not have the pristine quality like those of top-name brands, but it will do the job for you.

I bought a number of noise gates so I could compare them. I have a couple of single-coil guitars -- one with P90's -- and I need something to address the noise. I compared this pedal, an Electro-Harmonix Silencer Noise Gate, and a TC Electronic Sentry Noise Gate. TC's Sentury was the best. The big things I was hoping for were (1) quick engagement when starting to play, even subtly (as opposed to cutting off the start of the note) (2) elimination of noise in the background that would otherwise be audible while playing individual notes ("scrubbing" the signal coming through), (3) clean cut off of sound when playing stops abruptly, (4) clean cut off of sound when a note or chord fades out, and (5) not altering the guitar's original tone.

So going through these, the Behringer...
(1) engaged quick [PASSED]
(2) did no elimination of background noise that would otherwise be audible, though, strictly speaking, noise gates don't serve this purpose [FAILED]
(3) even with the Decay set to its lowest, the volume drop takes about 1/4 of a second. In my case, that means 1/4 of electronic hum follow by silence. This was a deal breaker for me. [FAILED]
(4) I don't recall how clean the cut off of sound was when a note or chord faded out, because the failure of #3 was a "deal breaker." [NO RATING]
(5) As far as altering the guitar's original tone, I could tell a very slight difference when playing and tapping the switch on and off. But it didn't seem like a degradation; it was just slightly different. Actually, sitting closely in front of a Marshall DSL40C combo, which has a 12" speaker, at low volume, it actually seemed like the location of the speaker moved horizontally. I don't know to explain that unless it's a phasing phenomenon. But heck if I know how that could happen! Anyway, to me, the difference was so slight, it wouldn't have been a deal breaker. [PASSED with qualification]

      Comments about Behringer NR300 Noise Reducer Noise Reduction Effects Pedal:

      I play bass in a church band and wanted to get rid of amplifier hum during the quiet moments of the service. This works exactly as it is supposed to, it drops noise to almost zero when I am not playing and lets the sound through cleanly when I am. My only complaint is that changing the battery requires removing the pedal, which is a bit of a pain, and would be hard to do in a performing situation. The unit will run off a 9V power supply, so I have purchased one to make changing the battery a non-issue. This cut into the unit's favorable pricing somewhat, but overall it's still a good deal. Being made of plastic it probably wouldn't hold up well under heavy use, but for my light-duty application I think it will be just fine.

      Very useful while using a crunchy/hi gain distortions with a lot of noise.
      Great for gigs and live.
      Very great decay range.
      Too bad it dosent have a "how much to reduce" button.
      Besides that, amazing value for your money.

      I just got this pedal & own a ESP/LTD V 50 & just got an ESP/LTD M 17 7 strings, I own a Line 6 spider IV amp & while plugged it creates noise, by using this pedal the noise get muted whenever I need it, being capable to listen to yourself without noise it's a whole different experience

        It does what it should yet it feels cheaply made. As this is a set it and leave it type of pedal the cheap feeling knobs don't make a big difference. For the price you can't beat it. If you stomp your pedals hard I would recommend a tougher pedal.

          I built a pedal board on the cheap and used a standard 9v power supply with daisy chain to power the pedals. The cheap power supply coupled with some lower end pedals created some noise in the signal. I connected this pedal, dialed it in, and the noise is gone. I can now use all of the effects I want without the interference.

          Comments about Behringer NR300 Noise Reducer Noise Reduction Effects Pedal:

          It could just be operator error, but I am not hearing much of a difference in reduction mode. It is very effective in mute mode. Battery installation is very inconvenient having to use a tool to press in the hinge pins to open the cover. Since I have only had to put the battery in once it will depend on how long it will last.
