Rocktron Hush - solve my noise issues?

The power points in my music room always cause me grief when it comes to unwanted noise. As soon as a little gain is added a nasty hum appears, and fluctuates depending where my guitar's pickups are pointing at the time.

I need some sort of noise reduction pedal to cut this crap out. I've tried the ISP Decimator and it is absolutely awesome, however it is way over my budget. I understand the Boss NS2 is alright if you want the heavy cutout for metal riffs, but I want something that will be good at allowing my guitar to still breathe somewhat.

I can't try the pedal out first, as my local shop will need to order it in. Should it be able to do what I want. I don't want it to colour my tone, or give me terrible sustain.

Thanks all.

Re: Rocktron Hush - solve my noise issues?

I have both the Decimator and the NS-2 and both are great.
I use the NS-2 with my JSX and the Decimator with my HT-5. Both can cut off your sustain if set with too much clamping or gating. I actually find the ISP to suffer from that more than the NS-2. But the ISP is more transparent when on, in regard to tone coloration.

That looks great, although I wonder if I can get a model suited for Australian power points.

Yeah the Decimator is pretty awesome, but as I mentioned it's out of my budget right now. I might investigate one of these. The NS-2 sounds like it will colour the tone somewhat, so I'm not so sure I want one of them.

I've used the NS-2 for years, and found it only colors your tone if you run the threshold at max level and if you use it while playing at low volumes. There is no tone coloring at high volume settings.

Don't bother with the Carl Martin Noise Suppressor, I've renamed mine to the Tone Terminator.

The Decimator pedal isn't that much more than the NS-2 pedal is it? I use the ISP pedal and really like it, I leave it on all the time set pretty low.

In Australia the price difference between the Decimator and the NS-2 is over $100. The Hush is reasonably priced (cheaper than the NS-2), and the DEcimator guys originally made the Hush, so I'm thinking they probably made a pretty good device originally.
