Electro-Harmonix showcases on their booth at Summer NAMM 2015 a new edition of The Silencer noise gate pedal.
The EHX The Silencer 2015 edition is designed for guitar players who use pedalboards and need to tame the hum and noise of individual high gain effects or a full effect loop.
The noise gate pedal features three controls: Threshold to set the necessary level when the gate opens, Reduction to regulate the gated signal reduction between -70 and +4 dB and Release to control how long the gate will remain open after the signal has gone back below the threshold ; this time is variable between 8 ms and 4 seconds.
The Silencer features 1/4” input, output, send and return jacks. The footswitch will enable a buffered bypass.
The pedal ships with a 9V battery but it can be powered by an optional adapter.
The new Silencer will be available in August for the US price of $76.80.
