    I read that someone suggested a BOSS NS-50 noisegate....

    I found a very cheap used one, less than half the price of a boss NS-2 pedal...

    but I am not really sure if it works on stringed instruments...

    I plan to use it to reduce a massive buzz I get from my tubeblower overdrive...

    any suggestions?

    A noise gate just shuts off the volume when you're not playing. But if that's what you want, Boss pedals are pretty great. I'd say you can't really lose.
