If you're addicted to the indispensable juice of a high gain amp or a string of stomp boxes, you need this pedal. Because along with your hot-wired tones, you're probably getting a generous helping of noise. Equipped with three selectable types of noise reduction, Hiss, Mid, and Full, the Smart Gate bites down on sizzle and hum but lets the smallest detail of your playing through. With its uncanny ability to sense precisely when -and how fast -to engage, this little genius will never get in your way, so you can wring every last bit of sustain out of that chord without being cut off. Originally designed by Scholz Research and Development, the Smart Gate has been completely updated with a hardwire bypass, precise threshold trigger, and new cleaner circuitry. Open or closed, it adds virtually nothing to your signal. This baby has also been squeezed down from half space rack size to a slender stomp box, leaving plenty of room underfoot for your newly tamed effects.

Power: Single 9-volt battery or Dunlop

I like the simple interface of this pedal and placed this pedal at the end of my chain. It has worked well for over a year. Couldnt figure out one day when I wasn't getting signal. Eventually found this pedal wasn't letting anything through. Set to the lowest setting all I get is a squeal from the pedal. Considering how little I play, I'm rather disappointed.

This MXR Smart Gate is the best noise suppressor on the market hands down! I had a ISP Decimator for years and was never 100% satisfied with it so i traded it towards this pedal and it was so worth it. The trigger level is so responsive you can accurately dial in how much noise suppression want, it cleans up your distortion/overdrive quite nicely. The 3-way toggle switch for the type of suppression (Full, Mid or Hiss) is great and a high trigger range switch is like a super filter. Anyone looking for a great Noise Gate i highly recommend this pedal.

Bought it for my annoying single coil hum on my tele. Fixed that really well. On the full setting I was able to get rid of the hum while maintaining very good sustain and no tone loss. Maintaining a natural sustain is very important to me. On one of my amps there was some small amount of pre-amp hiss on the clean channel and that was fixed by placing the pedal in the effects loop. I highly recommended this pedal and I appreciate Yvo's helpful advice. Just remember, the noise gate takes the hum away only when you are not playing.
