About This Listing

Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor

This vintage Made In Japan Boss pedal is in Excellent condition for its age and functions 100% perfectly.

The NS-2 is an invaluable pedal for keeping unwanted noise to a minimum whether you're gigging at venues with dirty power, or using it in the studio and simply trying to get the cleanest sound possible. Although the NS-2 is one of Boss' most popular pedals, the Made In Japan models are pretty scarce as Boss started moving production to Taiwan not long after the NS-2 was introduced. Please see the photos for exact condition!

About The Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor NS-2 Noise Suppressor:

Suppress the noise without squashing your sound.

The Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor Pedal effectively eliminates noise and hum from the input signal while preserving the original sound's tonality. Natural attack and envelope remain unaffected by suppression of the noise components.

The NS-2 can be connected in two different ways. You can connect the NS-2 last in your chain of effects. The output of the previous pedal goes to the NS-2 input jack. Wire the Output jack of the NS-2 to your amp.

The NS-2 can also be wired like an effects loop, which allows you to kill your entire signal chain just by stomping on the NS-2. Take the Send output of the NS-2 into your first pedal. Take the output of your last pedal and wire it to the Return jack of the NS-2.

The NS-2 uses an intelligent circuit to differentiate between the sound of the guitar and noise. The NF-1 simply cut all sound when it became weaker than a threshold value. The NS-2 attempts to let the sound of the guitar through while removing the noise. The NS-2 production moved to Taiwan December 1989.
