High gain-pedals and -amplifiers always add a dose of unwanted hiss to your signal. Your guitar’s pickups can also be prone to electromagnetic interference or hum or even have a tendency to feedback. The worst-case scenario would be a guitar squealing uncontrollably, or a guitar sound where the noise and hiss is louder than the actual guitar signal itself. The correct tool is a noise suppressor, which detects which part of the signal is the actual guitar playing and which is unwanted noise.
We only carry noise suppressors with the most accurate tracking. Especially the newest ISP Decimator models work very efficiently and imperceptibly, which puts them lightyears from the annoyingly choppy noise gates from the 1980s. You can use noise suppressors in several different ways. Go and check out the different hook-up schematics included in the product info.
A highly advanced noise suppressor. The Decimator II is a new and improved version, offering innovative improvements in the field of noise suppression. Special care has been given to make sure long notes fade out naturally, without any stuttering. We recommend placing the Decimator II after your distortion pedals and in front of your delay and reverb units.
The G-String-version features built-in send- and return-jacks, allowing you to connect the noise suppressor to your amp's effects loop. This way you can filter your high-gain amplifier's own noise, along with any noise coming off your effect pedals. The G-String tracks your guitar signal directly, meaning you don't need to change your threshold settings, even when switching from high-gain distortion to a clean amp channel.
