Well, after getting some nasty feedback from my distortion pedal(mainly) last week at an audition for a big gig, I decided that since the gig is this friday, I would invest myself in a permanent insurance policy. I marched myself on down to the Guitar Center and purchased the Rocktron Hush Pedal, or Hush The Pedal as they call it. I tried it out tonight on my giging rig, and I can't say enough about it. It's absolutely amazing. It quieted all of my pickup noise, distortion noise, even some fret buzzing when it became a problem. It's extremely well built, and I even tried throwing it on the ground to test its durability, not a dent or scratch. Overall, its built like a nuclear bomb shelter and is an irreplacable effect as far as I'm concerned. Recommended to anyone.
