The Rocktron Hush Super C has been a great addition to my guitar rig. If you are going with a stereo, dual amp rig with stereo delay/reverb, etc., this one is a must. It has two parts - a noise gate, and a hush. Knowing how to use each part is paramount to getting the best result out of this rack unit. The noise gate works like expected...though the hush noise reducer is a secret weapon for medium to high gain settings. The unit can be abit challenging with multi-channel amps, but a happy medium can be found.Anyone buying this MUST know that the tone improvements occur at a distance...this is important. This unit is primarily made for live performances, and for the listeners who aren't standing 10 feet in front of your cabinet or combo. The noise gate will take care of buzz and what-not, and meets the definition of a good product by itself for this purpose. The HUSH is only appreciated at moderately cranked volumes. Put your amp on a medium to high gain setting and set the volume at levels you'd use in a medium- to large-sized club. Keep the HUSH Super C off and play a typical crunchy mid- to high-gain riff, standing a good 25 feet or more from your cab. Now engage the HUSH (with HUSH level about 9 or 10 o'clock - don't worry about the noise gate for this test). Play your riff again. It's like someone cleared the crud out of the line from your amp to your speakers...suddenly they're more direct, cleaner, and your tone just shines through. It cleans up even the mildest of chaotic noise that can come out of your amp/guitar. Without doing this test with a live-level volume, you'll probably find that the HUSH is no different from any other noise reducer, and you'll feel like you wasted your hard-earned cash.I use the HUSH with a stereo setup of 2 Carvin V3 amps running through Marshall 1960BV cabs equipped with Vintage 30s. Good stuff...get one if you play live frequently.

i bought this in hopes that it would efficantly get rid of feed back without killing my tone, and i have to say it is not worth the money that i spent on it. i only own two noise reduction units this and the boss noise supressor, while im not very happy with with the boss version i still think thats it is better than the roctron. the rocktron unit really didnt help get rid of feedback at high volumes at all unless i turned the controls way up even then there would be feedback for a couple of seconds until the unit actually reacted and killed the signal. another complaint is that this unit killed my amps reverb completley. overall, its not worth the money

Clearing the Air

By wheeler9691

from Northeast Pennsylvania

Comments about Rocktron HUSH Super C Stereo Guitar Noise Reduction System:

There is always room for improvement (though I don't know what I'd recommend to Rocktron) so I gave this a 9/10. I play in a Deathcore band, and this thing handles all the gain I can throw at it. Some of the other reviews scared me because they said it "sucked all the gain out." From what I've seen this thing only helps my tone. I've only played with this thing for about half an hour, but it's extremely easy to adjust and tune in. I see no reason to buy a more expensive model.
I gave the unit an 8/10 because while it does everything I ask of it very well I can only assume there is a reason for "good" sound gates to cost three times this price.
As far as asthetics and performance this unit does everything as advertised. Just a simple sound gate with a threshold knob, and a Hush knob that seems to brighten all the best frequencies.
Since I am completely satisfied with the money I paid for this I'm giving this a 5/5 on value. I can't think of a reason to spend so much more on "the best" sound gates when this one does everything I need.

Should be one of the 1st purchases a guitar player should make.

Comments about Rocktron HUSH Super C Stereo Guitar Noise Reduction System:

I can only compare it to the programable noise gates in my Digitech RP1000 & in my old ART SGX2000 pre-amp processors.....
The Roctron stand alone Noise Gate is far superior....and its nice to be be able to adjust the threshold & release on the fly without going through presets...different guitars, room acoustics...its like an EQ....you have to be able to adjust it quickly.
Simple, effective and intuitive.
A piece of hardware is better than any software. At one time I believed the programable ones that came with the multi effects units would suffice.
Nope....this is the way to go.
I am cheap...so yeah it'd be nice if was half the cost, but after using it you forget it set you back $$$....because it is worth it.

Shuts It Up AND Gives Tone

By CarvinDC127

from Undisclosed

Comments about Rocktron HUSH Super C Stereo Guitar Noise Reduction System:

I have an INCREDIBLY loud amp (Peavey Triple XXX), and I really needed a hush processor to eliminate bad feedback, yet retain the good kind (i.e. Like live bands using feedback to make an entrance, not annoy the audience). I had decided on Rocktron because of their reliability in the past. Best decision I made for effects by far. Also, when I fed it through my effects loop, I turned the 'hush' dial to about 12 o' clock and it really brought out the heavy tone of my amp without thinning it at all. Get this effects processor.

Not so great

By MetalMassacre-o96Dn

from Sacramento

Comments about Rocktron HUSH Super C Stereo Guitar Noise Reduction System:

I bought one of these because I needed a noise gate and I heard that this one was "the best" At this point it's siting in my rack, not connected. When I first got it I spent HOURS trying to dial it in just right. When I turned the Gate Threshold past half way it sucked all of my gain out of the signal and I was left with a thin, annoying tone. I'll be selling this and buying The Decimator from ISP.

Everyone should have one!

Comments about Rocktron HUSH Super C Stereo Guitar Noise Reduction System:

I've purchased the Hush C on two occasions ('03,'08) and I can honestly say that it is one of the single most important pieces in my rig. Technically it's only a "noise gate", but somehow it actually ADDS to your tone! I think a lot of people out there have never really been able to hear what their amps sound like without all of the hiss and hum and if that's the case you should grab one of these right now. You'll have way more "control" of your rig and at the end of the day you'll be able to hear a lot of subtle little things that all of the hiss and hum have been covering up since day one.

Great piece of gear

By Arthur

from Laredo, Texas

Comments about Rocktron HUSH Super C Stereo Guitar Noise Reduction System:

I read alot of mixed reviews about this product and was a bit worried. But after reading the good ones, I got this bad boy in the mail today and man is it just awesome. Took me a few minutes to tweak it out, and it really is transparent. I have a Randall head and all the hiss and noises are gone. My tone is not affected by it. Just mess with it and it'll do wonders. It does work!!

this thing is great

By namratiugsisats

from Bangor, PA

Comments about Rocktron HUSH Super C Stereo Guitar Noise Reduction System:

Ok, I have lots of noise gates, suppressors, etc. This one works the best. I use tons of gain. It completely kills all unwanted noise and doesn't change my sound. To the guys who say it does, read the manual. And to the ones who complain about no on/off switch, again read the manual. There is a bypass switch. If you turned it off you wouldn't get signal through. Try unplugging your boss pedals and taking the batteries out. It's the same thing. It won't work while off. I do however agree that the power chord sucks. A smaller one would work much better. Oh well.

Comments about Rocktron HUSH Super C Stereo Guitar Noise Reduction System:

The hush requires a lot of tweaking and messing around...you can't just plug it in and go. If you plug this straight into the input on your amp it will cut your sound and not work properly. You have to run it through your effects loop and it needs to be the last thing in your loop other than any delay or reverb untis. Hope this helps!
