Anyone using a noise gate pedal to quiet the hum from your single coils? Interested in pros and cons and affordable models that actually work. My thinline Tele hisses something terrible on our church stage, which has a number of lighting fixtures in operation. Thanks!
Cool

I've used both the MXR Noise Gate and the Behringer NR300. They both work equally well without coloring the sound other than to remove the background noise. The Behringer is an absolute steal at less than $30 if you can get past the shame of having a Behringer pedal on your board. My teenage son's pedal board is populated almost entirely with Behringer stuff and although almost all their pedals are housed in plastic cases, some of them sound surprisingly good.

I use one of these for gigs/recording. It makes a Valco lap steel with monster hum useful again.
