and the Decimator successfully killed the extraneous noise instantly. It was also totally transparent and didn’t morph my guitar tone
into some feeble shadow of its former self.
I also tested the noise reduction by playing some long, sustained
notes. I was pleased to hear the Time Vector Processing doing its
job by fading the notes out smoothly instead of just choking the
notes to certain death. It takes only a short while to adjust the
threshold knob to your liking and adapt the noise reduction to
your tone and playing style.
Overall, the Decimator G String Noise Reduction pedal is a welcomed addition to any noisy guitar rig. With its ease of use, transparent operation and Time Vector Processing, it is a high quality
performer in noise reduction.—DB
