Here’s some shots of a board we did for @jeffloomis1 last year. This one had some cool LEDs on it. With the @bossfx_us ES-8s versatility it is easily able to be used in stereo or mono amps, with or without effects loops. The Bigsky is also MIDI programmed to be turned on/off via the ES-8 without being in one of its’ loops. #RigsByBTPAmore
"On my board I have a tuner pedal, I have U2, like, a delay... DigiTech Whammy pedal... wah, I use the Morley Wah... and a noise suppressor, noise gate. That's it. (...) Right now I'm using, this is a TC Electronic, the Sentry, S-E-N-T-R-Y, it's pretty cool. I've used Decimators in the past (...) I like the Decimator because it's simple. A lot of times with noise suppressors I'm like, I would just get a new one and I'd be like "Alright! Which way do I go to the threshold?"--do you know what I mean?--and I'm, like, trying to figure it out all the different funky terms like decay, threshold and where to go with all that, you know? (...) I just, I kinda move 'em around until it sounds okay, you know what I mean?"more
In the youtube video at 1:58 you can see Joey Black who is the guitar tech of bmth giving us a preview of the pedalboard that Matt Kean is using for his live rig. It's filmed during the Roskilde Festival 2016 and if you look at the top left corner you can see the TC Sentry Noise Gate.more
A noise gate that kills your amp's buzz, not your tone.
Sentry Noise Gate is your gateway to a noise-free and fully dynamic performance. Its cutting-edge multiband technology is set to cater to all of your hum and buzz-killing needs and with its highly intuitive design, you'll be dialing out that unwanted noise faster than an Yngwie Malmsteen arpeggio lick. Although extremely simple to use, Sentry Noise Gate's technology is based on the same algorithms as featured in System 6000; TC’s definitive studio processing powerhouse. The pedal also features a classic hard-gate mode along with a loop Send/Return for silencing noisy pedals/amps all without cutting out dynamics or feel. This can even be used for creative sidechaining, so the gate can be in precise sync with other signals.
Take control and enjoy the silence!
You're Hum Free
Sentry Noise Gate's multiband technology houses one of the most advanced noise-removal algorithms to date. This enables you to hone in on very specific frequencies and quickly remove extraneous noise from your signal as you stop playing, without any compromise to your core tone. The result? The most seamless and organic noise reduction you've ever heard. In this mode, Sentry Noise Gate is like the air we breathe. You don't notice it's there but you can't live without it!
Silent As The Grave
Sentry Noise Gate also features a classic hard-gate mode, which can be used for an immediate noise-cut effect. Go from a full-on sonic barrage to dead silence in an instant, only to let your epic riff re-emerge from the stillness and strike the unsuspecting crowd with unprecedented force. With Sentry Noise Gate, your riff-writing will forever ring with monstrous grandeur!

The gates to tonal bliss are wide open!
I'll be honest, I was really leaning towards a Decimator... but a few friends I respect recommended this gate and I haven't been disappointed. I strongly recommend you crank up your amp to "normal" stage volume for you, and then adjust it to your liking. I usually back the threshold off a tick or two after I've got the pedal where I want it. I like my rig to be right on the edge of madness. :)
When I'm having to play sitting on top of my rig... I usually adjust the threshold(s) up a few ticks.
I have yet to figure out the whole toneprint thing. Seems gimicky to me, but as a standard gate... this is rock solid.
Fellas, this thing is so sweet. It makes sounding not annoying and loud easy. The 3 knobs are easy to use and are sensitive to your desired settings. It's so good you'll forget the amp is on. Hope that helps.
This pedal kills the noise but preserves your sound much better than pedals like Boss NS2, MXR Noise Clamp or Electro Harmonix Silencer. Thanks to its multi-band technology, it gives you silence but, if well set, simply doesn't kill your tone, attack and sustain. If you are on the market for a noise gate, I strictly suggest not to waste your money with low-budget solutions and buying this instead, because it is awesome. Highly recommended.
I've purchased multiple TC pedals in the past and I never had an issue with any of them so I decided to buy this pedal. I've had the pedal for 1 week and I notice that the pedal when it's in my Mark V effect loop it sucks a lot of my tone. If I place the pedal in front of my amp the issue is gone. I've been in contact with TC Electronics and they are reporting that multiple people have reported this issue and that they are working on finding the reason why this is happening. More to come I am sure. I know that TC Electronics will find a solution.
