  • Metal Noise Reduction

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!

Excellent pedal!

Benni D., 07.07.2016
The Boss NS-2 is a noise suppressor / noise gate pedal - maybe not the most exciting purchase a guitarist can make, but definitely an important one if you are playing anything with high amounts of gain, hum, or noise.

The Boss NS-2 operates similarly to most other noise suppressor pedals on the market - you set a threshold so that only signal above that level will pass through to your amp. The pedal offers a Decay knob to set the speed and shape of the suppression. The final knob sets the mode of the unit, which changes it from a suppressor to simple mute / killswitch pedal. The NS-2 also features a built in loop, allowing you to patch in overdrive / distortion / fuzz / other noisy pedals directly into the NS-2.

The NS-2 has a fantastic set of features and sounds excellent. It effectively cuts out noise, giving the user full control of the amount of suppression, but it also properly retains the sound of your guitar.

I think the NS-2 is an excellent noise gate pedal, but it can be difficult to find the best place for it in your setup. The amount of features the NS-2 offers, and the position of it in your pedal chain can vary the results and success of the the pedal. It takes a little time to work out the best way of using it for your own personal use, but it is totally worth it!
