In the metal community, you will hear two deeply divided sides when it comes to noise gates:

1) "The ISP Decimator is the worst noise gate ever made! The Boss NS-2 is 100% transparent, and works flawlessly! The MXR Smart Gate is really good, too, but the Boss NS-2 is the king!"
2) "The Boss NS-2 is the worst noise gate ever made! The ISP Decimator is 100% transparent, and works flawlessly! The MXR Smart Gate is really good, too, but the ISP Decimator is the king!"

So basically, if you're a metal musician, your ratings are either:
Decimator: 100%; Boss NS-2: 0%; MXR Smart Gate: 85%, or
Boss NS-2: 100%; Decimator: 0%; MXR Smart Gate: 85%.

My advice: If two polarized sets of gear snobs can manage to agree on one piece of gear, then it must be good. You can try your luck with the Decimator or the NS-2 and join the silly debate, or you can go with the sure bet and get an MXR Smart Gate.

As for where this goes in your signal chain: If your main problem is feedback when you turn your amp up, then this pedal goes first in the chain. If your problem is a weird hissing sound coming from one of your pedals, then put this after that pedal (and expect a slight change in your tone). If you are really that hung up on your guitar tone and feel that it's being changed too much, then get an EQ and stop complaining. If you have both problems, then I don't know what to tell you...buy two?

This pedal is exactly what I was looking for. I've got a Hot Rodded Strat that screams in between notes. It was killing me to hear that on stage, also to have to keep turning my volume pot up and down was becoming a pain. This pedal can be left on all the time to cut the screaming feedback. I set it at about the 'one-o-clock' position that seems to work well for me. It can be used in conjunction with the force you put on the strings to give a cool swell effect too, play a little lighter and it won't 'pop-on/pop-off', it'll swell.

I should have bought one years ago. I love my Smart Gate. It cleaned up my Strat hum as well as some hiss issues I was experiencing on the clean channel. I found that the medium setting at about 40-50% trigger was sufficient to clean up 99% of my noise issues. That being said, if I go really crunchy, I set the puppy on full.
Full will diminish your sustain somewhat, in spite of what the manual says. Higher trigger settings also tend to compromise your sustain. I have never had to use the high trigger function. I run the gate last, after the delay pedal.
I will also add, if you have a prime membership, ordering this pedal from Amazon is much more cost efficient than ordering from the other guys.

Bought a Decimator first and it Worked great for the noise floor and I could see if you were using it to quiet pedals like overdrives, wah or compression, but I needed it to kill the feedback from my high gain setup. The Decimator was very transparent regarding tone, but I had to turn it up to about the 2 o'clock position to kill the feedback. At that point it would decay the notes rather quickly and cut them off. Even worse so when I switched to the clean channel. I thought the Decimator was the best on the market, but I was wrong. I purchased this MXR Smartgate and did a side by side comparison of them and I must say the Smart Gate decays the notes so much better and can really handle the high gain without having to crank the knob around. What I also like is that it compresses the notes just a little so when you switch to the clean channel it really sings! Hands down it's the Smart Gate or nothing!

I only have 3 pedals in my guitarrig and this is one of them. This gate does an awesome job of quieting down the noise when you're not playing while still letting your notes ring out when you are. It let's me use my American standard stratocaster, fat 50 single coil pickups in all positions :) I like how simple the controls are, and how little effort it takes to dial in.

I had this horrible hissing noise from my amp due to the high amounts of gain I use and a chain of several effect pedals. I was also getting unwanted feedback when I stopped playing. The MXR Smart Gate completely FIXED the problems! This pedal is small but very sturdy, extremely easy to use, has a super bright blue light when it is engaged and I would definitely recommend it to anyone with a noise problem.

IT does what it's supposed to do (in my rigs at least) and I prefer it to MXR's other offering (forget the name). I also use Boss Noise Reduction pedals, depending on what kind of dirt pedals I'm running. Each pedal has its subtle differences, differences in ease of operation, so you have to find one that blends in, or is in tune with, the rest of the pedals in your chain.

I wasn't sure about this after reading multiple reviews. Never the less,I ordered it. This pedal is real good! I own a Junior with P90s. Killer pups but annoying hum/buzz. This thing did the trick. No tone loss, just beautiful silence.
