    Product Description

    A sophisticated noise gate that can tame a single pedal or an entire effects loop! The Silencer’s three-control layout provides precise fine-tuning to fit your system, axe and playing style. Threshold adjusts how much level is required to open the noise gate and allow a signal to pass thru. Reduction regulated the degree to which the gated signal is reduced and is variable between -70dB and +4dB. Release controls how long the gate remains open after the signal drops below the Threshold. Release time is variable between 8ms and 4 seconds.

    I/O includes ¼ inch Input, Output, Send and Return jacks. The footswitch selects whether The Silencer is engaged or in bypass mode; buffered bypass allows the effects loop to remain in your signal path when the gate is bypassed. A built-in AC jack accepts a standard power supply like the EHX 9.6DC unit (optional) and the pedal comes with a 9V battery.

    When you alter how fast it cuts in, it takes a while for your adjustment to kick in correctly. Once you have it set up, does the job well.

    Simple and very effective pedal that can remove wildest noise you can imagine. Single coil Strat on an Peavey6505+ overdrive channel boosted with MXR Distortion plus? Easy! Be sure to use effects loop though! P.S. Requires playing with buttons quite a lot to get what you need. As a bonus - robust construction and battery included!
