I recently got into Strats, Tube-Drivers and Big Muffs - great choice for tone, bad news for a lot of noise at higher gain settings. I remembered that I had a ISP decimator G-String laying around that I tried and for whatever reason, it did absolutely nothing. After scratching my head for a while and getting *really* sick and tired of the noise, I decided to buy a TC electronics Sentry. I put the sentry after my drives and before modulation, delay and reverb. The initial results were good, but like any noise gate it would swallow the tail of fading out notes which is annoying. Then I read the manual and connected it such that my drive pedals are in the loop of the Sentry and the guitar goes straight through - voila, total silence, nicely decaying notes. Any of the algorithms of the Sentry works like a charm and now I am enjoying my Muffs and Tube Drivers even more. Anyone else has good or bad experience with that pedal?
