Boss NS-2

Noise SuppressorThe BOSS NS-2 is a very effective noise gate, which was tailored to the needs of guitar and bass players. Unwanted hum, buzz and noise in short and longer pauses are completely suppressed - if desired only reduced. A switch toggles between reduction and mute while the original sound is not affected, if you have found the desired setting with the decay and threshold knobs.

Very good!

Chrisz, 11.02.2015
It's very easy to use: there are only 3 knobs on it, threshold (determines the sound level the signal needs to fall below before the NS-2 silences it), decay (determinies the time before the effect kicks in - the further clockwise you turn it, the more natural it sounds, but it will be less efficient at cutting noise. You can pretty much leave this at minimum, unless it sounds un-natural to your ears) and mode. There are two modes: reduction, which means when the pedal is off, nothing is happening, and when the pedal is on, it cuts noise; and mute, which cuts noise when the pedal is off, and totally mutes your sound (e.g. for tuning) when the pedal is on. There's also a handy led to tell you when it is actually cutting noise. It has a send-return circuit for plugging your other pedals into. The NS-2 completely rids it of any noise that I don't want. When you start playing a note, it's instantaneously there. There's no annoying fade in that leaves the attack sounding like something fluffy and uncertain. When I don't play (even with the distortion on and turned up all the way) it's virtually silent. It has a mute option that allows you to simply cut all sound from the guitar instantly. So if you begin to get feedback, step on it and it will be gone. If you are deciding what noise removing thing to buy, this is it!

WHAT NOISE???

RD2017, 09.08.2017
The NS-2 is a very useful addition to my pedal board, both in the studio and on the road. It cleans up my signal considerably, without any noticeable degradation of tone. I have a couple of noisy single coil pickup guitars and the improvement when using the NS-2 is dramatic.

The pedal itself is typical of the Boss tradition, in that it's well built with a simple layout.

The inclusion of a 9 volt in and out socket on the rear is very handy. It allows me to run an extra pedal from time to time without the need for another power supply.

It has a couple of features that, to be honest, I just don?t use. There?s a loop feature that allows you to run noisy pedals through the gate circuit while allowing your guitar signal straight through unaffected. There?s also a ?mute? mode that allows you to cut the entire signal. (handy for some on stage situations).

I just run it on my pedal board after my compression and overdrives and before my delay and reverb. It?s a simple setup that works well. I have absolutely no complaints.

The controls are very straightforward. A minute or two playing around with the NS-2 and you?ll have the hang of it.

I demoed several other units, but found that the Boss ticked all the boxes. I can highly recommend the NS-2 to anybody who wants to clean up their guitar signal without compromising their tone. 10/10.
