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.

Excellent piece of kit to remove noise from an 8 string guitar with the brilliant function of an effects loop as well, seriously good value for that alone. A bit finnicky to get right though as the noise gate is super sensitive. I'm using it after a distortion pedal and it seems to be working well, but I'm not sure I would use it before distortion or other effects.

First I tried this pedal at the beginning of the chain. It didn't react quite well, changed the attack, and took to long to clamp on the noise after stop. Then I read some recommendations on the internet and it said it's best to put it after the gain pedals. So I did that, and it worked great after tweaking some settings on the pedal. Threshold and reduction are very codependent, and there is a clear line when the settings come into effect. Too much threshold misses the attack so it's important to fine tune it with small corrections. I was having a problem of too much noise getting amplified through a **** pedal, this helped a lot.
