Pigtronix Gatekeeper is a lightning fast, studio quality noise gate pedal that locks out all unwanted noise from any rig. Sporting threshold and release time knobs, the Gatekeeper provides 100% attenuation with unprecedented response time, making it the most useful and effective noise gate pedal on the market. Pigtronix Gatekeeper utilizes ultra-high speed J-FET circuitry to completely eliminate hum, hiss, buzz and any other non-musical sounds from your signal path. The wide range threshold control combines with superior headroom to deliver smooth transient response and warp speed time constants previously available only in rack mount, studio oriented noise gate processors. These extreme performance characteristics allow for musical gating even under the most punishing demands of high speed metal. The addition of the release time knob allows the user to control how long it takes gate to slam closed. Mercilessly cutting out any and all sounds you don’t want to hear at the very instant you stop playing, the Gatekeeper will allow players to crank up the volume without fear of hearing the annoying 60-cycle hum or white noise that plagues most high gain rigs.

This is a good pedal, but not really any better than any other noise gate I've tried. It definitly doesn't kill 100% of the buzz as advertised. I have this pedal as the last thing in my effects loop, so it comes after all distortion including my amp distortion. If you don't have a noise gate currently, this one is good. But if you already have another brand, this one's probably not any better.
Big fan of Pigtronix. While this pedal doesn't do much to alter your sound or tone in any real way, it does give you a much "cleaner" signal to work with which is exactly what I wanted. Super useful for high gain setups.
Works well & very musical, blows others out of the water. I hope to buy more pigtronix gear!!! The key to getting noise gates to work right is putting them in the right spot in your pedal setup
