  • Description

    Now you can achieve noise exterminating bliss with Rocktron’s incredible new Guitar Silencer stomp box that combines patented HUSH® noise reduction technology with a noise gating process. This combination of two means to achieve noise elimination provides one outrageous noise killing device!

    No matter what style of playing you do, from pop to metalhead madness, the Guitar Silencer is your swiss army knife for wiping out hiss and silencing those changes in your music. The Guitar Silencer allows you to go from heavy all out distortion to SILENCE by muting your guitar strings! All this WITHOUT changing your tone! That’s right, we said your tone will not be changed!

    There are times when your music calls for single-ended noise reduction…that softer version of noise elimination that allows your sustain to ring out, unaffected, while getting rid of creeping hiss and circuit noise – and that is what Rocktron’s patented HUSH does so well. Then there are times when you want “hard” noise gating, to chop the ends of your notes while achieving instant noise kill. (This was first achieved remarkably in metal by Dimebag Darrel of Pantera fame while recording with the original rack mounted Rocktron Guitar Silencer years ago). This new stomp box provides BOTH of these noise reducing methods in one simple pedal that takes a minimum of space on your pedalboard.

    Part of the Rocktron Boutique Series of stomp boxes, this pedal design comes in a rugged metal chassis with eye popping retro custom design laser etched artwork. This is a TRUE BYPASS pedal: when you turn it off…it is out of your signal path!

    As an incredible bonus, you can add True Bypass to your favorite distortion pedal when adding the Guitar Silencer to your setup!

    Controls for the Guitar Silencer include GATE, which is the Threshold at which the noise gate portion of the effect will clamp to silence. The HUSH control determines the Threshold of the noise floor you want the HUSH portion of the effect to reduce.

    The ACTIVE LED lights up when the Gate Threshold has been met.

    INPUT is for the original audio source. SEND determines the original audio source to be used by the effect input. RETURN is the output of the effect.

    The footswitch on the Guitar Silencer controls On/Off status (indicated by the LED). This stomp box runs on a 9V Alkaline battery. You may also use the Rocktron DC OnTap Universal Power Adaptor

      Comments about Rocktron Guitar Silencer:

      This replaced a Boss NS-2 I have had for decades. I like the fact that it has Hush noise reduction as one knob, and a gate as the other. With both of these features it is more useful than the Boss. It is true bypass, and I heard (but did not verify) that Bob Bradshaw has used this pedal on pro boards he has built.
      it does everything it is supposed to do, and sounds (or doesn't sound!) great.
