    Just curious if there is a TGP-approved noise suppressor.

    Edit: What I am looking for is something to tame the hum/hiss of high gain amps and pedals without losing sustain. I'm sure there will be some sort of compromise here, but I'm all ears.

    ISP Decimator II G-String. The G-String version is side chain based, which means that it "listens" to your clean guitar, and you set the threshold on your clean guitar signal. It gates your dirty signal. This method takes a couple more patch cords, but it's really the only way to do it with minimal impact upon sustain.

    I wonder if Analogman would think the same about the Decimator II G-String. Most of the drawbacks he lists for gates don't really apply to the G-String, IMO.

    A similar pedal is the MXR noise clamp. I found it for a great bargain and took a chance on it. So far, so good.

    I'm pretty sure I've owned them all (seriously).

    Decimator II G-String wins.

    It solves so many problems with crappy club power and radio interference.

    I use a TC Electronic SPE. Great compressor and noise suppressor. Also parametric eq.

    I have used the Noise Clamp with good success.
