It's my belief (and I know things) that the real noise performance of our pedals is pretty much the same or better than most other pedals.

But, there is one proviso. Some pedals have a noise gate on their output which cuts off the noise when there is no signal. That is why I was keen for people to name "quiet" pedals. So far no-one has.

We did not add a gate because its operation can usually be heard, either a breathing effect or cutting off decay tails. In addition, it does not cut the noise while you are playing – that is always there, but is masked by the signal.

But, maybe people would prefer this….
