Suppress the noise without squashing your sound.

The Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor Pedal effectively eliminates noise and hum from the input signal while preserving the original sound's tonality. Natural attack and envelope remain unaffected by suppression of the noise components.

I've had this for about 3 months now and couldn't be happier with it. When I got it in the mail it took only about 30 seconds to figure it out. I set it: Threshold to Max, Decay to Min, and Mode to Reduction to use during a song, or Mode to Mute to cancel all sound when a song is through whichever you choose. The jacks seemed complicated at first because of what the manual shows you, but just plug your guitar into the Input side jack, and your amp into the Output side jack and you'll be good to go. You need to remember to unplug the Input jack when your done playing and ESPECIALLY at night, or it will run the battery down quicker. Battery life will last you a good couple of weeks, or you can plug an AC adaptor into it. Thats another good thing, if you use an AC adaptor, it has a very snug fit unlike other pedals I use, so it's less likely to unplug if you trip over the cord. Even though it cost $90 plus shipping, it is well worth your money.

No matter what the settings it sits there like a rock. Save your money and buy something else that works. I have a pocket pod that actually reduces the amp feedback, and this is a secondary function of this piece of equipment.

great pedal

Comments about Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor Pedal:

i saw a used unit sitting at the local music store and thought i'd give it a try. my rig consists of an ibanez art100, boss ml-2, dunlop crybaby from hell and bugera 6260. the ML-2 pumps alot of gain and with that amp needs something to tame it. it didn't come with a manual, making hooking it up difficult, but thanks to the boss website i was able to refer to the manual. i love the 2 features of either mute or suppress. this is a welcomed addition to my pedal chain!

use it as a loop and it's perfect!

By victorious

from Undisclosed

Comments about Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor Pedal:

My amp has no effects loop, so I got this (originally just to clean up sound) and found out that this is a great loop in and of itself! You can power all your pedals with it and not HAVE to buy a powered board, plus you can have 2 loops, as looping time based effects with your distortion, etc. is not that great. I have my delay on a separate loop, as instructed in the manual and it works great! At first I didn't do this and found I had little control over the gate, it only worked at almost full 10. Be sure you hook everything up exactly as the manual describes for best results. A must for recording with your amp/effects pedals.

A Necessity.

By Erik

from Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Comments about Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor Pedal:

For me, it came down to the Boss NS-2 vs. ISP Decimator. Tried both out, and enjoy the boss much more. Compared to the ISP, this one sucks a tiny bit of sustain, but I'm a rhythm guy, not a lead, so it's not like I'm crying about it. I run it through my Peavey 6505+ Head and 4x12 Avatar Cab, with a Dunlop Wah, MXR 10band eq, Boss Chorus and a Maxon OD-9. Without the pedal, I get lots of noise, but with a quick stomp, it's completely clean. If I crank the threshold all the way up, I can't do the slow, 10 second, faded in notes like I used to. So, I have to compromise and stomp off the NS-2 pedal first. Once I'm done with fading in, I can re-stomp it back on and do the riff. A good bonus with the NS-2, is that it acts as a power supply for other pedals, so I just used my Cry Baby adaptor, hooked it up to the Boss, and then used jumpers to each pedal. Simple, Easy to hook up, and it looks awesome with just a single cable running to an electrical outlet, rather than a freakin' powerbar sitting on the stage. This PEDAL is AWESOME

This really is a great buy

By Bud Bohanon

from North Carolina

Comments about Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor Pedal:

I use a fender stratocaster with noisless pickups and a crate gt series amp. The amp is fine but everytime I switched to my lead pickup i always got an annoying hum. Especially when playing infront of a computer of tv. I bought this little wonder box, as I call it, and I am so glad I did. I was ready to put 300 into a new amp to solve this problem but this pedal really works. I could a noticeable difference in my playing and definately my solos. I would recomend this to anyone using annoying single coil pickups and for people who play in a room with a lot of electronical equipment in the room

Great pedal

Comments about Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor Pedal:

Before trying this pedal, I tried the Rocktron hush. Right out of the box the thing smelled like paint, anyway I hooked it up the way they said to, and my rig actually sounded noisier. I played with it for a while, but couldnt really get it to sound good; needless to say I took it back to the store. I bought this pedal and hooked it up the way the booklet said. I had no noise from the get go, now I have a big muff pedal, and if youve never tried it, that thing makes a lot of noise, and this thing stopped it, completely.

absolutely essential

Comments about Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor Pedal:

If you use a high-gain amp then you absolutely cannot go without this gate any longer. I have this as the last pedal in my signal chain before my amp, and I never turn it off. Contrary to some other gates, this does not affect your tone at all. I'm currently using a Dean ML through an Ampeg VH-140C, with a self installed EMG 81. I'm not the best at installing pickups so I have a ground hum issue. With this pedal, the sound completely stops when I stop it. There are other gates such as the ISP Decimator and Rocktron Hush systems, but this does a better job than the rocktron at half the price of the ISP. It also serves as a power distributor for your other pedals. It cannot be beat, especially if your playing style includes sudden stops where silence is essential.

A MUST HAVE!

Comments about Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor Pedal:

If you were fed up from too much feedback, like I was, then you very much should consider buying this. The light on the pedal only lights up when you are not playing. All this pedal does is take away ALL feedback. It doesn't effect your natural sound at all. IT'S SWEET! This is what you do: set threshold to max, decay to min, and mode to reduction, and you're good to go. It also can supply power to all of your pedals. All you need is one adapter and a daisy chain cord. (It says on the instructions to only use the BOSS adapter and the BOSS daisy chain chord, but you can use any brand. I use a DIGITECH adapter and a ROLAND daisy chain chord.) Just if you are wondering, it can supply power to any brand of pedal, not just BOSS. The send and return inputs can be useful if you have a lot of pedals. This pedal is a bit pricey, but it's well worth every penny. It is a must have for anyone who owns many pedals! Buy it now!

does the job

Comments about Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor Pedal:

This thing works! It's simple to use and you will notice a great difference right away. After you tweak the threshold knob though, you will be more than satisfied!
