Product Description

If you've ever cranked the gain on your favourite amp or distortion pedal, you'll be familiar with the amount of hiss and noise that is present. The KMA Machines Pylon is an advanced, multi-functional and super-versatile noise gate pedal that tames unwanted noise, whilst maintaining and reinforcing your natural sound and attack.

Featuring an ultra-fast gate with a smooth trigger, the Pylon is equally suited for fast chugging palm-muted playing as well as long decaying notes. An integrated boost section gives you up to 30 dB of extra gain while an external trigger input allows the Pylon to be switched remotely or triggered by an external source, enhancing and balancing your rig.  The Pylon also boasts an effects loop, allowing you to isolate noisy pedals from your signal chain, which means you will hear less of the unwanted noise and more of what matters...you!

The KMA Machines Pylon is so much more than a typical utilitarian noise gate pedal. It will completely transform your whole rig and let your tone flow!

Cool and with a poweful boost function - really essential kit that goes the distance if you've got a noisy rig to silence. Also looks ****** too.

Probably one of the best noise gate on the market today. Also the boost and cut functions are very nice, it's a bit less aggressive than I wished, and not really near TC Integrated Preamp-type boost'n'cut, but still very usable.
