Summer NAMM 2015: New EHX Noise Gate


EHX tells us that, responding to the needs of pedalboard users and players whose high gain effects create difficult to control hum and noise, they have developed The Silencer, a sophisticated noise gate that can tame a single pedal or an entire effects loop.

A spokesperson said, "The Silencer's three-control layout provides precise fine-tuning to fit your system, instrument and playing style. Threshold adjusts how much level is required to open the noise gate and allow a signal to pass thru. Reduction regulates the degree to which the gated signal is reduced and is variable between -70db and +4db. Release controls how long the gate remains open after the signal drops below the Threshold. Release time is variable between 8ms and 4 seconds."

I/O includes ¼ inch Input, Output, Send and Return jacks. The footswitch selects whether the Silencer is engaged or in bypass mode; buffered bypass allows the effects loop to remain in your signal path when the gate is bypassed. A built-in AC jack accepts an EHX9.6DC power supply (optional) and the pedal ships with a 9V battery.

Pricing and Availability:
The Silencer has a $76.80 MSRP and will be available this August.
