    It had one that said Assembled in USA. I peeled it off because it looked kinda cheesy like a return address label. :)

    So I figured out how to control the Invective using my iPhone/ipad over Bluetooth. It requires an adapter such as the Yamaha MD-BT01. The possibilities are pretty cool.

    Hey Guys, I’m trying to get rid of that annoying humming* (the hiss when I’m not playing, dunno how to call it) of my high gain stuff on the Invective, and did a little research to find myself trying to decide wheter to buy the ‘ISP Decimator II’ or the ‘ISP Decimator II G String’, I’ve never used a Noise Gate before, and read that the ‘G String’ has a way to go in the Input* (or preamp or something like that) of the amp head as well as the Effect Loop, but since the Invective already has a Noise Gate on the Input* (wich I use mainly to get rid of the feedback) maybe I could be good with just the ‘Decimator II’ on the Effects Loop and save me that extra $100 bucks of the ‘G String’.

    Any opinions on wheter to buy the ‘ISP Decimator II’ or the ‘ISP Decimator II G String’??, is the Noise Gate on the Invective good enough for removing feedback?, or should I buy the G String and not use the Invective Noise Gate??, or any other recommendations on Noise Gates would be appreciated.

    P.d. I Use the Pre Gain on Channel 3 at lvl 4.5, and the Invective Noise gate at lvl 2 just for feedback.

    The Decimator II should work just fine for that purpose, as should any other decent gate. I have an MXR Smart Gate and a Rocktron Reaction Hush that both work well for that. When playing at home, I kinda like the hush better since it cuts out hiss even while playing. It’s amazing how much difference it makes at relatively low volumes.

    The Decimator II is plenty.

    I use a first gen Decimator in the loop of my Invective and it combined with the built in gate = total silence.

    Hah, typical NAMM slippery release date. They originally say “Available in March, preorder now!” and then it slips and slips and slips and you can actually buy one in September.
