Electro-Harmonix Silencer Noise Gate/Effects Loop


Electro-Harmonix Silencer Noise Gate/Effects Loop with Release, Thresh, and Reduction controls to tame a single pedal or an entire effects loop.

About the EHX Silencer

The Silencer’s three-control layout provides precise fine-tuning to fit your system, axe and playing style. Threshold adjusts how much level is required to open the noise gate and allow a signal to pass thru. Reduction regulated the degree to which the gated signal is reduced and is variable between -70dB and +4dB. Release controls how long the gate remains open after the signal drops below the Threshold. Release time is variable between 8ms and 4 seconds.

Electro-Harmonix Silencer Features:

  • Three controls for precise fine-tuning
  • Use it as an inline noise gate or to gate an entire effects loop
  • Delivers up to -70dB of noise reduction
  • Features 8ms to 4 seconds of release time
  • Buffered bypass
  • Compact design, rugged chassis

Pros. Pros. and more Pros!

I/O includes ¼ inch Input, Output, Send and Return jacks. The footswitch selects whether The Silencer is engaged or in bypass mode; buffered bypass allows the effects loop to remain in your signal path when the gate is bypassed.
