I’ve had my eyes on the Zuul for a while now and finally decided to give it a shot, especially since this version finally does not require to have another splitter pedal due to it’s new key-through output. Using it with the recommended setup (4 cable method with the guitar signal going directly into the key input, while putting the noise gate into the fx loop after the pre amp) yields great results with all the noise from the amp being removed when there’s no signal coming from the guitar. The hold and release knobs allow you to get a really tight and precise response which is especially great for achieving this modern “djenty” kind of tone. For leads, you will definitely have to play around with those controls to get enough sustain while still keeping your rig’s noise under control, but after some experimentation I got it to work well enough for that as well.
All in all a great noise gate, especially for metal players
