The Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor is a guitar effects pedal designed to eliminate unwanted noise and hum from your guitar signal. It helps to maintain a clean and quiet signal path by reducing noise introduced by high-gain distortion, effects pedals, and other electrical sources.
The NS-2 effectively reduces unwanted noise and hum without sacrificing your guitar’s original tone. It features a dedicated threshold control that allows you to set the level at which the noise reduction circuit engages. When the input signal falls below the set threshold, the NS-2 activates and suppresses the noise.
The pedal includes a decay control knob that adjusts how quickly the noise reduction effect fades out when you stop playing. This allows you to find the right balance between eliminating noise and maintaining a natural decay of your guitar notes.
The NS-2 features a send/return loop, which allows you to insert other effects pedals or processors into the noise reduction circuit. By placing noisy pedals within the loop, you can effectively suppress their noise while preserving their desired effects.
