Overview

A sophisticated noise gate that can tame a single pedal or an entire effects loop! The Silencer' three-control layout provides precise fine-tuning to fit your system, axe and playing style. Threshold adjusts how much level is required to open the noise gate and allow a signal to pass thru. Reduction regulated the degree to which the gated signal is reduced and is variable between -70dB and +4dB. Release controls how long the gate remains open after the signal drops below the Threshold. Release time is variable between 8ms and 4 seconds.

I/O includes 1/4" Input, Output, Send and Return jacks. The footswitch selects whether The Silencer is engaged or in bypass mode; buffered bypass allows the effects loop to remain in your signal path when the gate is bypassed. A built-in AC jack accepts a standard power supply like the EHX 9.6DC unit (optional) and the pedal comes with a 9V battery.

Features
  • Three controls for precise fine-tuning
  • Use it as an inline noise gate or to gate an entire effects loop
  • Delivers up to -70dB of noise reduction
  • Features 8ms to 4 seconds of release time
  • Buffered bypass
  • Compact design, rugged chassis
  • Equipped with a 9V battery and accepts a standard EHX 9.6DC/200 AC Adaptor (sold separately)

I'be been looking for a good noise gate for a while, but all the recommended ones were just to expensive for me to afford on a tight budget. I came across this bad boy one day and thought I'd give it a shot. I loved it within the first 15 minutes of using it. I use a lot of gain so my amp gets very noisy especially in my small room. It doesn't affect my tone whatsoever, elimates almost all feedback instantly when I'm not playing, and even makes my tapping leads and hammer on riffs sound much cleaner. If you need a noise gate pedal that's good quality and on the cheaper side I'd recommend this. Oh did I forget to mention how easy it is to use too?

This pedal wasn't very effective in my pedal board setup. I have a fairly complicated board with about 13 pedals. I used the loop for a couple of pedals isolating them from quite pedals, and ran the input signal from my rack to the input of the Silencer and out of the silencer to the front of the amp. I basically had to max the pedal out to get any relief in the hum and hiss. I am not saying this pedal doesn't work with smaller board setups or configurations, it just didn't work for me in my setup. It is also very possible no noise reduction pedal will work with my system. So, I am splitting the difference with a fair 3 stars for my review.

    Gets the job done

    Comments about Electro-Harmonix Silencer Noise Gate Guitar Effects Pedal:

    This is my first noise gate pedal and it is fairly easy to use once you understand what each knob really does. I use a bugera trirec infinium 100w amp head and it has a lot of gain. When you have a high gain amp cranked up you will get a loud hissing noise, which is extra noticeable when you just have your hand on the guitar and you are playing. The silencer really cleans up the sound by suppressing the hiss. I use it in the effects loop of my amp to cover the built in distortion and everything else on my pedal board. It works for me and the price is unbeatable. It gets the job done!
