If you're addicted to the indispensable juice of a high gain amp or a string of stomp boxes, you need this pedal. Because along with your hot-wired tones, you're probably getting a generous helping of noise. Equipped with three selectable types of noise reduction, Hiss, Mid, and Full, the Smart Gate bites down on sizzle and hum but lets the smallest detail of your playing through. With its uncanny ability to sense precisely when -and how fast -to engage, this little genius will never get in your way, so you can wring every last bit of sustain out of that chord without being cut off. Originally designed by Scholz Research and Development, the Smart Gate has been completely updated with a hardwire bypass, precise threshold trigger, and new cleaner circuitry. Open or closed, it adds virtually nothing to your signal. This baby has also been squeezed down from half space rack size to a slender stomp box, leaving plenty of room underfoot for your newly tamed effects.

Power: Single 9-volt battery or Dunlop

I bought this for hum cancelling, on a Fender Strat Pro 2 and other guitars . SEE video "MXR Smart gate ATOM AXE". He demonstrates it, with no sound loss and NO HUM. Meling, at Bloor West sold it to me. She advised trying it from the low Hiss eliminating setting, to the Mid, then Full setting for the Trigger Level. It works well with no loss at the Full setting, knob turned 2/3 clockwise. Excellent service and advise, as always. No need to compromise with hum cancelling pickups

I like the simple interface of this pedal and placed this pedal at the end of my chain. It has worked well for over a year. Couldnt figure out one day when I wasn't getting signal. Eventually found this pedal wasn't letting anything through. Set to the lowest setting all I get is a squeal from the pedal. Considering how little I play, I'm rather disappointed.

This MXR Smart Gate is the best noise suppressor on the market hands down! I had a ISP Decimator for years and was never 100% satisfied with it so i traded it towards this pedal and it was so worth it. The trigger level is so responsive you can accurately dial in how much noise suppression want, it cleans up your distortion/overdrive quite nicely. The 3-way toggle switch for the type of suppression (Full, Mid or Hiss) is great and a high trigger range switch is like a super filter. Anyone looking for a great Noise Gate i highly recommend this pedal.

Bought it for my annoying single coil hum on my tele. Fixed that really well. On the full setting I was able to get rid of the hum while maintaining very good sustain and no tone loss. Maintaining a natural sustain is very important to me. On one of my amps there was some small amount of pre-amp hiss on the clean channel and that was fixed by placing the pedal in the effects loop. I highly recommended this pedal and I appreciate Yvo's helpful advice. Just remember, the noise gate takes the hum away only when you are not playing.

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
