Summary: This pedal does the work, it kills that buzzing sound when youre not playing, this is exactly what it does : [...], the boss is the best one if youre on stage because there that buzzing sound when you stop playing means everything, if youre at home, go and get this one, for a pedal that all it does is reduce the noise, this is your best option.
Summary: Best value for awesome pedals - Behringer! I recently purchased a MXR Noise clamp for twice the price of the Behringer and the MXR works half as well. I needed a noise reducer for my bass, and it needs a good one for the single coils (Fender P Bass Special). I almost bought another MXR, but saw the behringer and figured give it a shot. I was amazed how well it works! I use a Behringer XYNEX mixer, and love it's performance, so I guess I shouldn't have been surprised.
Summary: Well I got this just because I needed a noise suppresor to quiet my pedal board that consists of a wha, compressor/sustainer, tube screamer, distortion pedal, vibrato/tremolo, slap back echo, and the noise reducer in question. Well to start off with the good: the mute feature works well, and it does come in handy. I read the reviews here on a mazon and decided to get it anyway because of the very low cost.
Summary: It's cheap and it's Behringer; but it's get the job done well! It'll lower a lot of the noise with some faint hissing still in the background, but it's much better. I wish it was metal instead of plastic, but that's okay. It works as good as ones in the 100 dollar or so range. If you want a noise gate for practice, recording, or small gigs; bingo right here. If you're a professional, you may want a better one. Again though, amazing deal!
Excerpt: This is the 3rd noise gate - 3rd company I have tried. All were quickly returned, except this one. The NR300 works as advertised. Does not kill your tone. Being able to run the insturment in and then all the effects into this pedal before going into the amp via different inputs is great. It removed all the noise from the pedals as well as pickup noise. I used a disgram from another brand to see the best/quickest way to set this up.
Summary: So i my mrx noise gate kicked the bucket. and i got this just for a small practice pedal to replace it. i use an mrx usually. i ordered this, and behringer sent me a Bass chromatic tuner, i plugged that in to my bass for kicks and it didn't even work. don't waste your cash with this company.
Summary: I would definitely recommend this noise reducer if you are on a low budget. By first impression I could tell that this pedal wasnt as great as maybe a Boss pedal, but if its plugged in properly and you use the send and return feature it works as a noise gate pretty well. In response to the review that said it sounds like a fart machine, I can almost guarantee you you dont have it connected properly.
