good gate

Indrek P., 30.05.2018
My mini-rig consists of Randall RD-1 head+1x12 cab, delay and a boost up front. Main guitar has EMG 57 in bridge. This setup has been completely silent in different rooms even though I play hi-gain stuff primarely. After we moved to a new house my music room has been getting bad EMI noise. This noise supressor makes everything noticeably more silent and adds extra tightness aswell. Controls I use: gate about 11 oclock, threshold 13 and reduction 13. I have discovered that the most effective knob is threshold. Gate affects the sound mostly full on. But then it cuts too much sound. X-pattern didnt change things much because I have no distortions in the loop. Only clean boost(bad monkey). When going for light crunch or guitar volume rolloff the SIlencer is better to be switched off because it starts to cut the weakened signal pretty badly. But this is not the pedals fault - rather something all gates do. EH power supply 9,6v works perfectly with the pedal. Good product specially for the price.

Capable of handling any type of noise

26.09.2016
In my chain this pedal is the highest hierarchically, extending its scope over the entire chain from the guitar input to the return of the fx loop of my tube amp.
Since currently i have an twofold impedance mismatch between an amp and a cab, it produces a constant low hum, making playing a single coil guitar through the setup being excessively noisy. Implementing a noise-gate X-connection with this pedal battled every type of noise that could appear in my chain, and had just enough controls to make it sound organic.

My main points of experience:
+ The noise-gate X-connection does not damage the tone, and no phase cancellation running it through a long loop has been a problem;
+ The range of control values on the knobs can make this pedal take on more functionality than just of a noise gate, so however strange it may sound, it may be played around with as well;
+ Small current draw, as of the majority of EHX pedals, favors the owners of large pedalboards;
- Even though it can be tweaked with the proper combination of "Threshold" and "Reduction", it seems to have been more intuitive to have a separate "Attack" knob. However the pedal functions just as well without it.
