Got an NS-2 as a birthday present, and has been a much needed item on my board that I am glad to have received! Ever since I got my Marshall 2203, the noise has been extremely unbearable especially given that I am boosting the amp. I've also started to use my Strats in the last couple of months and those having standard single-coils is no help. Luckily, Boss makes an excellent noise gate! Obviously there is still some noise coming from the amp especially when I have the lights on in the room, but beyond that, that's my only complaint. Also want to give a shoutout to Rob L on YouTube for making a video on how to use this pedal more effectively in both the effects loop and in front of the amp, and I highly advise watching this video before you buy an NS-2 to further utilize it. I know this isn't the most exciting NPD post, but I thought it would be something cool to share as this is both a life saver and a cure of some of my GAS.
