This noise gate is the best noise gate I've ever used. Nobody in the world uses more gain than me. I have a gainy rack pre amp that is very noisy. I also use distortion pedals to push the gain that much further. I owned all kinds of rack noise gates that I had to sell cause they didn't do the trick. This pedal is awesome. I use so much gain that when I'm not playing there's a ton of noise and this pedal eliminates it all. It even has a loop to get rid of your pedal noise too. So I run the output to my pre amp to get rid of that noise and it gets rid of my pedal noise cause of the loop. I can't ask for anything more than that. Don't be fooled. Just because it's not a rack mount noise gate doesn't mean it can't do the job. In fact it can do the job much better and much cheaper!

This pedal is okay, if you know how to use it right. Most people send their signal right through the pedal as if it were an ISP Decimator or something along the lines of that. To get the full effect out of your pedal you have to utilize the Fx loop on the pedal (Which might be difficult for some players.)

Passable

By hbucker

from Highlands Ranch, CO

Comments about Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor Pedal:

I've used this for years. Most of the time the results are o.k. but not astounding. It will cut out most of the noise but I believe it also limits my tone. I swear my amp sounds better when I'm not using it. It can also be confusing I suppose. It's designed to have it's own effects loop. Once you understand this, it's generally pretty easy to set up. But as someone else said, you must read the owners manual. Look around. I'm not convinced that a straight up noise gate wouldn't work better.

Pretty good

By Ryan

from St.Louis, MO

Comments about Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor Pedal:

I have been experiencing some loud humming/squealing from my Crate 212+ and Schecter Tempest so I began searching through noise gates and suppression pedals. This pedal caught my eye and through a lot of research I took the risk of getting it to see if it would actually work and not kill my tone. I plugged it in to my effects chain and immediately it killed the tone. I consulted the manual to see if I was doing something and I discovered that this pedal is really picky with where it is in the chain. After some relocating and tweaking my tone is not as decreased as it was before but there is still a reduction. As far as the noise suppression goes it does cut the feedback out. And of course it is a Boss product so it is built like a rock. It is a good buy if you read the manual and know how to line up your effects chain.

My favorite piece of equipment

By marthieu425

from Manistee, Michigan

Comments about Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor Pedal:

This pedal cuts out ALL the unwanted buzz and feedback from my guitar and other pedals. I use it with a boss compression, a super overdrive, and a DD-6 delay. Its wonderful.

well done

By scott

from greensboro nc

Comments about Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor Pedal:

This product will kill noise when you are not playing anything. In my case, I am playing a entry level guitar with a practice amp and lots of pedals on the floor. This in mind I would say the NS-2 does the job very well. I would guess that the better your eguipment is, the better this product will work. You should be very happy with it.

If it's good enough for them...

By Mitch

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor Pedal:

I've been looking for a good noise gate for some time now and i have been stuck between MXRs noise gate and BOSS..'s Noise Suppressor. I figured that I should move on from BOSS since i already own about 6 of their pedals. this was until my love for Boss's stompboxes was renewed by Coheed and Cambria's review of the pedal and some others. I figure if they're happy gigging with it, I should have no problems.

Great Piece Of Equipment

By Jem Blair

from Ottawa, Ontario

Comments about Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor Pedal:

All I can say is this thing is amazing. I had a show last night and we were doing sound check and my amp was having serious feedback and humming problems when the guitarist from a band that was coming on later asked if i wanted to use his noise suppressor. I plugged it in and all my trouble were gone. No string noise what so ever, it was like the guitar volume was off. The chugging still went through and the chords sustained right, it was perfect. I recommend this to any gigging guitarist out there, definitely worth your cash.

Best way to use:

By Mike

from New York, NY

Comments about Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor Pedal:

If you play high gain and have tons of noise (6505+) then the best way to use the NS2 is: Guitar --> OD pedal --> input of of NS2 --> NS2 Send --> Amplifier input --> Amplifier Effect Loop Send --> NS2 Return --> NS2 Output --> Amplifier Effect Loop Return. Awesome pedal for such a cheap price. It will suck some tone so if that's your concern and money is not an issue then the ISP Decimator ProRack G and G-string are the way to go.

REALLY DISAPOINTED

By wicktana

from Taylor, MI

Comments about Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor Pedal:

I have several Boss pedals and all of them are great. When it came time to buy a noise gate I went back to the Boss. I have really been let down on this pedal. It doesn't filter out the hiss as much as I think it should, and I have to turn it to maxium threshhold and decay. Maybe I just got a bad one, but it is not doing the job I wanted it to do. I would try it out before I bought it. Another brand maybe a better choice.

Shut up already

By Machine Gun

from Carson, CA

Comments about Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor Pedal:

If you run tube amps at hi-gain do yourself a favor and buy this pedal. Unless you happen to be super fast with the volume knob (ala Zakk) this pedal will remove all the crazy noise without robbing your tone. Oh yea...read the instructions. they help...

Excellent Suppressor

By guitargodz1

from NJ

Comments about Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor Pedal:

The Boss NS-2 is, in my opinion, a high quality noise suppressor. I play with a Schecter 006 deluxe series and occasionally an Ibanez, and this pedal has put a complete and total stop to the fuss and hiss coming out of any of my amps. In fact, on certain settings, when I am not playing the guitar, it sounds as if the amp is not on. However, the sustian with this pedal is not as natural or long as I would like it to be. I bought this pedal about 4 months ago. Since then, I have used it whenever I have played, including for practices and for gigs. It really does the job. Overall, I believe the Boss NS-2 is a wonderful pedal and is definitely in a good price range.

Best NS Pedal You Can Get

By Drewrevolution

from Greensboro, NC

Comments about Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor Pedal:

The Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor Pedal does exactly what it's supposed to: cuts noise. I own a Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier (2 Channel) and this thing cuts out all the white noise that comes with my head on overdrive. It's amazing and I wouldn't recommend anything else. Get it!

Does the job

By Selene

from Tacoma

Comments about Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor Pedal:

Well, you know it does pay to read the instructions, and failing that give Boss customer service a call. I was getting this horrid "hissing" problem and had the classic single coil "hum" going. After reading the manual my eyes were glazing over. I read a couple negative reviews on this product, and I figured that since I've had nothing but good luck with Boss, I'd call tech support to find out the best solution. Well they had it. I've got my three noisiest pedals going through that loop. My BF-3 and TS9 are outside in front. I did turn the threshold up to 3 o'clock. I've got the decay up at max. It does the job. I can still get some wicked feedback but only when I want it. The hiss is gone! The hum is gone! So can I complain? No. Could it be better? Everything can be better. I could win the lotto jackpot. That would be better.

A Must Have in your pedal board

By Wai Wong

from Brooklyn

Comments about Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor Pedal:

This pedal is great and a must have to cut those unwanted sounds. Especially for those guitarist who uses alot of effect pedals, you really need this to cut those noise. It is very user friendly with just three knobs. It can suppress almost any amount of feedback given by poor pickups and single coil pickups. I would definitely recommend this pedal to those who owns a Fender guitar with single coil pickups and those who play high gain stuff.

What's that noise? Silence!!

By Ian

from WI

Comments about Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor Pedal:

I recently bought this wonderful product and was blown away by the results. I have an Epiphone Les Paul Goldtop that has 2 P-90 Pickups and they buzzed like no other through my solid state amp. I had to jam with the volume around 6. Now whith the pedal I play full blast. The only time I noticed a difference in tone was on really heavy distortion, but other than that it worked great. I wouldn't recommend this for people who palm mute a ton or slide their fingers a lot on heavy distortion.

You need this!

By Uncle Don

from Fairport, NY

Comments about Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor Pedal:

So this isn't what you'd call a "fun" pedal, but it is probably one of the most important ones. After struggling with transient noise from pedals, cables, and lots of distortion, I bought the NS-2 to clean it up. After recabling everything in the send/return configuration as shown in the instructions, the results are beyond amazing! My one noisey rig is now clean and mean, and sounds like it should. Undecided about this one? Try it out and return it if you don't like it...but I bet you'll keep it! This is a MUST!

Wroks like a charm

By Trepahanationman

from Akron Ohio

Comments about Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor Pedal:

It does exactly what it is supposed to do. Most of my gain comes from my amp and I only use a couple of pedals but this is a must with the level of gain I use. I would literally be lost without this pedal.
