Boss Noise Suppressor NS-2 Reviews
Boss regulates the price but some NS-2 dealers offer free stuff (like a power supply that actually gets along with the NS-2) so include ?free? when you Google for where to buy one. The knobs control a lowest usable volume & once your signal falls below that you get silence so balance that limitation with noise control. Very sturdy. My effects...

All in all I think the BOSS NS-2 is a decent noise gate for someone looking for a basic stomp box noise suppressor with a nice fast cutoff and more controls for adjustment. If you just want something to get rid of hum and don't need that fast attack, I would have a look at the ISP Technologies Decimator which does that job well and has served me...

The pedal itself is solid, but there are better things on the market today. I vastly prefer the ISP stuff to the Boss stuff when it comes to noise gates. The Boss technology is just too outdated and doesn't sound as natural as the ISP does for the type of music I play. If you can get one of these cheap, get it. Otherwise, just get an ISP.

At new you can find these pedals for right around $115, which isn't bad for this pedal. I would recommend everyone who regularly gigs to have one of these pedals because the noise from room to room will affect you rig each time and it can be needed if you have high gain in your tone.

For the money it's definitely a worthy pedal for any board. It does it's job and is very affordable. I've tried a few others and haven't found a real need to switch from my NS-2. I sold my original NS-2 and recently came back to it. It's a great pedal. Built like a tank, like most Boss pedals. [read more on Audiofanzine]VishNuRoXoUt rated this unit on 2011-05-08.
I've been using this unit since the beginning of this year. I love it's noise suppressing capabilities. It's not the most glamorous pedal, but I feel it is an essential component of one's pedal chain. I don't know what I did before I bought this unit. The only thing I don't like about it is that it kills your sustain if you set your threshol... [read more on Audiofanzine]Heavyspender rated this unit on 2008-04-23.
If youre dealing with insane pedals, example: trying to have 2 low-end distortion pedals on at same time without getting a headache, its possible! [read more on Audiofanzine]I dont like boss - too many happy campers! rated this unit on 2003-05-19.
