The Stone Deaf FX Noise Reaper is a simple, high-quality noise gate designed for line-level instruments. The only knob controls the db threshold under which the signal is silenced, with a LED indicating if the noise gate is active or not.
However, this is not your regular manual gate:
The pedal works by taking the input sensitivity of the guitar input and the noisy signal source and comparing the two which enables you to gate unwanted noise but still be able to sustain notes if playing lead guitar sections.
It can also operate “Series FX Loop” mode, as shown in the video below, which thoroughly explains the various ways the pedals two ins and outs can be configured.
The ”Noise Reaper” is a professional noise gate designed for line level instruments, guitar and bass that has evolved from our noise gate technology within our “Warp Drive and Fig Fumb” high gain distortion and fuzz pedals. Tried and tested for many years in these applications with added improvements controlling unwieldy feedback and signal sources, be sure that this is one of the best noise gates on the market.
The pedal consists of a “Threshold” control knob which enables you to control how much the gate opens allowing for the dynamics you want to shine through. The pedal works by taking the input sensitivity of the guitar input and the noisy signal source and comparing the two which enables you to gate unwanted noise but still be able to sustain notes if playing lead guitar sections. The LED indicates if the noise gate is on or off and it has a high-quality soft touch relay based true bypass footswitch / circuit.
The pedal uses a high quality VCA which is the THAT Corporation 2181C for this application giving transparent ultra-low distortion and high dynamic range to keep your tone sounding absolutely fantastic.
The “Noise Reaper” can operate in “Pedal” mode and “Series FX Loop” mode. You can use two Noise Reapers for absolute silence should you need to as a 3rd mode.
