Hi! I'm a bit annoyed with a lot of background noise with my guitar rig and I am thinking of getting a BOSS NS-2 or something similar. I use a Vox AC15, so I do not have an effect loop, is the noise reduction still effective while just using it linear? And is it worth it at all? I use a Telecaster from 1982 so there's some natural background noise from the single coils, but also from my compressor pedal. Appreciate replies! Thanks!
