Effects pedals for noise suppression are designed to eliminate or reduce unwanted noise in an electric guitar’s signal chain. When you connect your guitar to an amplifier and other effects pedals, various factors such as cable quality, electromagnetic interference, and ground loops can introduce unwanted noise into the signal, which can be particularly noticeable when using high gain distortion or overdrive effects.
Noise suppression pedals work by analyzing the guitar signal and then applying filters to remove unwanted noise, such as hum and hiss. Some noise suppression pedals use a noise gate, which cuts off the signal entirely when the guitar volume falls below a certain threshold, while others use more advanced processing algorithms to reduce noise without cutting off the signal.
Examples of popular noise suppression pedals include the Boss NS-2, the ISP Decimator, and the TC Electronic Sentry Noise Gate. These pedals can be particularly useful for players who use high gain distortion or overdrive pedals, as these types of effects can amplify even the smallest amounts of noise in the signal chain.
