The active sensors in this pedal are phenomenal. They permit all those frequencies you employ while you play, allowing for resonance, harmonics, etc. while still limiting background noise. At first I was reluctant to buy into the theory that this pedal would help, but for recording and live play it makes an enormous difference. It preserves my overdrive even on the bass without dulling clarity, tone or presence but drastically limits the background fuzz and hum. The adjustable sensitivity allows you to selectively use it to permit or inhibit the sounds you would otherwise desire/expect from your other effects. The guitarist in my band, once he heard how effective it was in recording, immediately decided to go get one for himself. Believe!!

This pedal is great for reducing hum and really allowing you to get a great heavy metal palm muting sound.

Great Little Thing!!!

By GNRfan

from Marlton, New Jersey

Comments about MXR M-135 Smart Gate Pedal:

It cuts all of the noise but lets your sweet tone come through. Unlike the Boss model, this doesn't affect your tone. I think your tone actually sounds better. I don't have a pedal board. I only have my crybaby and then this. A true rocker's arsenal. Get this pedal!

BEST. NOISE GATE. EVER.

By Mike

from Rockwall, Tx

Comments about MXR M-135 Smart Gate Pedal:

the thing comes in the mail. i take it out of the box and just hold it for a second. like all MXR Pedals by Dunlop, the thing is built like a friggin TANK and could probably take a bullet, much less a guitar player beating it down with his/her foot. no loose knobs, buttons, switches, the product is built TIGHT. i hook it in to my effects loop (22 pedals strong) at the very end, and turn everything on, boot up etc...i leave the Smart Gate off (yay true bypass!) and take into account the amount of static in my loop (its legendary). then i turn on the smart gate and take LITERALLY 50 seconds to dial everything in on it, and BAM!!!! NO STATIC WHATSOEVER!!! this pedal is AMAZING!!!!! it has what seems to be no effect on sustain (i own a schecter c-1+ plus, which has the sustain of godly status), tone, no added distortion, NOTHING but pure crisp notes. i play ALOT of Metal of ALL varieties (system of a down all the way to Dying Fetus) and it is fantastic if youre using static-filled pedals like synths and metal distortions (like the boss metal zone or the digitech hardwire TL-2 Metal Distortion which is waaaaaay better). its truly one of the smartest pedals out there and is a must have if youre into any type of music. PERIOD. YOU WILL BUY THIS I COMMAND YOU!!!!!!!!!!!

Noise Terminator

By M. Peter

from Rhode Island

Comments about MXR M-135 Smart Gate Pedal:

I bought this pedal around Christmas time, and I have been happy with its performance since. When I play gigs, my amp gives loud feedback when I turn it up. My distortion pedal also augments this. However, I just turned this pedal on and boom, clear sound. Great pedal for the money.

I own 14 pedals and schecter guitar with 212 valveking peavey amp. I use a power conditioner to filter out dirty AC. No hum, no hiss,no noise. What a beauty. Cannot hear this effect turn off and on, is quiet. Awesome.

Say bye to unwanted noise :)

By Tyler

from Gilbert, AZ

Comments about MXR M-135 Smart Gate Pedal:

Bought this pedal wanting the unwanted noise on my 5150 3 to go away. Got this in the mail about a week ago and as soon as i plugged it in i was amazing at how much easier it was to play without having to worry about muting your guitars volume on every pause. True Bypass is a plus too.

My First Noise Gate

By Michael Wong

from Boston, MA

Comments about MXR M-135 Smart Gate Pedal:

The MXR M-135 takes a lot of hiss away when using distortion. It doesn't take all of it away though. It's built tough, and it has a rubber covering over the knob that makes it easier to use your foot to turn it. I think it would be easier if all of the settings was in one knob though, instead of having a switch on the right and a button on the left to determine the settings. It also kills palm muted notes sometimes, so you have to be careful how you palm mute.

Wonderful, but maybe misunderstood?

By TOBY DIAZ

from Riverside, CA

Comments about MXR M-135 Smart Gate Pedal:

This is a great noise gate from MXR; superior, in my opinion to the ISP Decimator that I used to own. The Smart Gate's fast (instantaneous?) attack is perfect for a metal guitarist laying down punishing, stacatto palm-muted power chord rhythms. The Smart Gate offers you enough control over your rig's feedback and noise to either eliminate it completely, or possibly even use it in a musical way: at the right threshold setting, a power chord can be strummed and allowed to sustain to the point that the chord begins to feed back, but the feedback never gets louder than your threshold setting will allow it to, and tapers off as the gate begins to recognize the feedback as noise and gradually reduces it. This amount of control allows you to perform studio-quality fade-outs at the end of songs you play live. With the Decimator, at the minimum threshold level I used, any note I tried to sustain for longer than a few seconds-even before beginning to feed back-would be aggressively cut off. Turning the threshold level any lower would allow too much ambient noise to get through, so I was stuck with a gate that sucked my sustain-before, of course, I bought the Smart Gate. And even though the Smart Gate doesn't mute noise from accidentally bumping your instrument and causing your strings to vibrate, like the Decimator would, I find that it's more the responsibility of the played to have the discipline to prevent their instrument from accidentally making sound, not the noise gate's job to mute their instrument completely when it isn't being played. This seems to be a fairly common misunderstanding of the purpose of a noise gate.

Comments about MXR M-135 Smart Gate Pedal:

Love it to death works perfectly as it is described but it still allows feedback to an extent. But, I'm still getting the high hiss/hum/Feedback background noise which is coming off of my MXR M-102 Dyna Comp Maybe it's because I have the Dyna Comp's Sensitivity all the way up?! Works well but I don't know why it's not eliminating the hissing hum from my MXR M75 Super BA Distortion Pedal but it takes away the hiss from my MXR Fullbore Metal Pedal.

Shhh! Metal Palm Muting in Progress!

By Patrick Tabhan

from Lake Stevens, WA

Comments about MXR M-135 Smart Gate Pedal:

It's as smart as it was said to be. Gives me absolute control with feedback, noise, hiss, and hums. Works well with all my other pedals. doesn't cut my signal at all unless I play too soft and set the trigger to full. It also eliminates your choice of noise (which is the best part about it.) Thought I never needed a noise gate with the control I have on my current rig. I got this just for the heck of it but now, I truly believe it was the best decision of my musical career.

Kills the Unwanted Noise and Lets the Wanted Sound Live!

By Michael Wong

from Boston, MA

Comments about MXR M-135 Smart Gate Pedal:

I don't know how they do it, but somehow it kills stupid low pitched bomb blasting feedback that may occur when playing, and kills high pitched feedback when not playing. When playing with a lot of distortion, a noise suppressor like this one should be used. I found that this pedal does the job best with the trigger level all the way up, the noise reduction switch on full, and the high trigger button off. Great noise suppressor!

    Comments about MXR M-135 Smart Gate Pedal:

    I had a nasty buzz in my rack system, no matter what I did I could not get it to go away I used various pedals and methods. I was told about this pedal and I put it in between my GC ex and my mesa boogie Triaxis, no more buzz, it's silent, thank god. This pedal took away no just pedal took away no tone tone and still works great. If you have a buzz or hum, get this first!!!
