Hot Box Attitude Series Gate Keeper Guitar Noise Gate Pedal:
The compact Noise Gate pedal from Hot Box Pedals is the ideal addition to the end of the effect pedal chain. A simple, yet effective pedal, the noise gate works to minimize and eliminate any sounds, or buzzes extraneous to the desired effects or guitar sounds leaving the pedal set up and proceeding through to the amplifier. It ensures a “cleaner” and tidier finish, and removes the burden from the player of switching pedals off immediately after playing a solo or a song passage.
How to Use the Noise Gate?
A noise gate is works as a noise eliminator that prevents unwanted buzzes and feedback from being amplified when you are not playing guitar. Setting a threshold, or volume level limit on the pedal determines when the noise gate is “opened” to let signal pass, and when it “shuts” to prevent signal from passing through to the amp. To achieve this, set the amp, pedal and guitar levels to the optimum level and then wind in the threshold to the point where all the notes, sustains and chords ring true and then cut off before any buzz, noise, or feedback enters the amp.
Compact / Miniature Case Size:
Advances in circuitry design have made is possible for guitar effect pedals to be built in compact enclosures that literally fit in the palm of the hand. The mini design allows more pedals to fit on a pedalboard and helps reduce the overall weight, making them an ideal solution for the traveling guitarist.
True Bypass Circuitry:
The compact inner circuitry is designed with a 3PDT True Bypass switch ensuring an unaltered tone when the pedal is not engaged. A true bypass switch has the ability to perform a true bypass of the internal hardware circuit of the pedal, meaning the signal goes straight from the IN to the OUT.
